I typo'ed my username, can a mod put an A in front of it please? (should be Athiril not thiril).
Hi, Im studying film production (a bachelor degree), in my final year, and looking for 16mm single sided perf stock in Australia, as a student Id like any cheap stock I can get my hands on (recans, short ends etc)
For those interested:
Will be shooting on a modified Krasnogorsk-3, widened out to Super16, with the M42 mount I havea nice selection of lenses for it (i have future plans to put a tripod plate on the film mag, and shoot horizontally and create my own gate for a 3 perf 22.86 x 12.52mm image - will need to modify gear ratio, but its a simple camera )
Will be developing b&W and colour film at home - I've been doing this for about 6 months now - on still 35mm and 120 roll film, I find it simple enough, and have used b&w developer (kodak xtol) and c41 developer to create a colour reversal with good success (http://www.photodan....au/xtol-e6.html) - one of the things I'll be doing for my degree in my experimental processing (as well as attempting to add dyes to b&w film - to create an autochrome like film), just plan on picking up a 100ft 16mm tank.
For telecine, I'll be using the animation/single frame mode of the krasnogorsk and running the developed film back through it, with a dSLR + macro lens hooked up with the shutter release to the film advance mechanism as a switch to mostly automate the process, shooting down the throat of the lens mount (have macro imaged still film @ 3000 dpi of real detail before with excellent results, dont need a resolution that high for a HD telecine ).
Id like to stock up on 16mm stock as soon as possible so I dont have to worry about it.
As for chemicals I can mix my own (ive spent a huge amount of time in experimentation on still photography on film though), I also have a deal with a camera house in case I cant get all the individual components to make it up to get bulk stuff (10-40 litres) pretty cheaply, in comparison to the normal cost of $150-$180/5 litres for colour chemicals
Dont have much of a show reel atm, but I do have a few nice still photos
Anyway, if there's any Aussies out there that got some film supply connections Id like to hear from you
