Hi everyone, I've been exposed only to dv camcorders and editing software that edits mostly video that was captured from mini-dv tapes. I am curious what Robert Rodriguez was using when he filmed his first movie El Mariachi http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104815/ (what camera and how did he edit it), I'm asking because we know he made it all by himself.

The IMDouBious site says what camera and lenses he used.

It was shot 16mm, non-sync, with dubbed dialogue. The footage was telecined to 3/4" U-matic videotape, and edited in that format.

I believe he had his film telecined with time code and used a couple VCR's to edit it. I think he provided the distributor with an EDL and they actually cut the film. I could be wrong about this but that's what I heard.

Heya,

Analog video (jeez, that seems like a hundred years ago) was basically two expensive, video decks linked by a controller-board. The controller would take time-code entries from the editor and preroll both the source and record decks to sync them up. Then at the magic entry points the record deck would snap into record mode and take the video and, if so assigned, audio data from the source deck.

Analog film was done on flatbed editors (before that, upright editors that were little more than low powered film projectors with a lens you looked through instead of projecting with) that transported the film from a platter through a rotating prism, onto a screen, then onto another platter.

Holy cow. I actually cut stuff that way. NLE rocks the house!
