I am shooting something with my trusty old Bolex Rex in a month that might benefit from something wide enough to have a distorted view but not as wide as say a typical 180 degree type fish eye lens. I will be shooting some rather paranoid close ups of a woman's face and don't want to distort her too badly but to give it a distinct look.

Any suggestions for cheap (the cheaper the better - it's a one time project) ideas for other effect lenses are welcome. I am well familiar with Guy Maddin's Vaseline on the clear filter style and love it so that is not out of the question. Other cheap tricks you folks may know of for distinct looks would be most welcome.

Lenses available right now are the Rex 10mm, 25mm 75mm and the Ang 12-120 zoom. I do have some WA small video adapters that might adapt as accy lenses and will be taking a look at them tonight. Trying to avoid Avid tricks in editing if I can so I don't exaggerate the grain there.

Thanks all,

Sean
