I don't know if this would work for movie cameras but if so, it could be lot of fun to play with:

Some of this is really cool too. I don't know if you could do this with a motion picture though, but IF you could it without digital, would be some amazing effects

The custom bokeh would work with motion. Can even use the same fast 50mmm lens in that article on the Canon5D2 for example.

I don't know how you'd do light trail though, they need a long shutter time, in the region of seconds or even minutes.

Those sprint commercials a while back did it with stop motion. Super cool series of commercials.

Yup, go for gold - (I've done it)

From daguerreotype to cine to snappy snap to digital stills to etc... - all just sensors or film inside black boxes with a chunk of glass in the front

Or not even that. :lol:

I don't know what attracts me to the photographic process exactly, but I love it in every single incarnation.

Stop motion. The only way to do that is long exposure times.

could it be done with the HVX 2fps hack?
you get half second exposure with it, is it enough?

Can you "draw" in 1/2 second what you want on film?

Interesting they left out Intervalometers, especially the Norris, when discussing Film Motion cameras... which is perfect for this effect.
