Hello Gents,

I was thinking along the lines of VistaVision and getting the most out of 35mm. So, I came up with this:

Same top-to-bottom as normal academy's side-to-side. Here's even crazier:

14-perf at 24 fps... a 2000' roll would last 6 min. 20 sec.

Cinerama was working on a 16-perf horizontal 35mm single strip camera. The gate was curved like a WideLux panoramic still camera. But then they went with 70mm instead.

"For some time, Cinerama Inc. had been developing a new, single strip Cinerama process which exactly duplicated 3-Strip Cinerama on one film. The key to the new system was a revolutionary new lens and camera, the camera using 35mm film running horizontally, advanced 16 perforations per frame. Eventually the aim was to develop a 35mm horizontal 16 perforation projector to complement the new process but, in the meantime, it was decided to extract 3-Strip prints from the new negative for the existing theatres. A purpose-built printer was reputedly ordered and delivered to Cinerama┬┤s Oyster Bay Studio for trials. Then, in a moment of supreme folly, Cinerama Inc. abandoned the new process, opting instead for a system of projecting any 70mm print onto their deeply curved screens."

I consulted a little on that one in the mid '90's. They had a working camera and shot some tests. If you're really interested, Don Slemp would remember a lot more about it than me. We could look him up.

I found an e-mail address for Don, and sent him this message:

> Hi, Don --

> There's been some interest on an internet cinematography forum in 12 perf,

I tried to tell you about it via an individual message thru this board, but that crashed with some kind of Microsoft error message.
