The website is a work in progress(galleries have a few issues with Chrome browser still). The short trailer can be viewed here:
I've been shooting this with a Bolex Rx 5. Of note, this camera was somewhat filled with saltwater at one point when a small boat I was on in Kiribati got swamped by a wave. I drained the water out, and a day later the camera locked up. I sprayed loads of WD-40 into along with pouring corrosion block oil into just about every opening...at the time I did not have tools to take apart the camera. The camera came back to life! And it's worked well ever since, for two years now. Within the last year I took apart the camera and cleaned it as best as I could, along with converting it to S16, which is another long story in itself.
The footage in the trailer is almost all regular 16, and transferred from my workprints at Astrolab in Chicago. I get workprints made to have a film back up of everything I shoot. I edit these workprints for the select shots, and transfer them to mini-dv for digital editing for the time being.
Hope you enjoy checking this out, and thanks to everyone here who has in some way helped me make this.
