Here's a clip of my first piece of 16mm film I ever shot. I was not going for an award in cinematography. More or less looking for scratches, light leak problems, or other lens or camera problems because I bought the camera off Ebay. It's shot on a Bolex reflex H16 on 7231 Plus X negative B&W. I used a Sekonic Studio Delux III light meter and our very own Cinelab did the telecine. The black bar on the right is of no fault of Cinelab. It's showed up when I put the footage in Compressor for whatever reason. Most is 24 FPS, the slow motion is 64 FPS.

Never shot any film or used a light meter before. I think it came out pretty good. There's some slight exposure problems and some footage looks soft, but I can work those bugs out. I was just playing around with slow motion and the DOF.

Why would he copy that?

I think the quality would be improved with a tripod and editing of course, but the image quality look all right.

It held my interest, even without audio. What did you learn from it?
