In Topic: Music Video entirely shot on film (Super 35 and Super-8)

27 September 2017 - 07:18 AM

I really like the thought put into the framing and editing in this video.

 

Could you tell me how you are doing the crane shots though? I thought those look a bit interesting and quirky.

In Topic: Twin Peaks

So you'd avoid watching a film that doesn't have flashy cinematography? It's a great show. Lynch is pushing the envelope massively.

 

That's a bit of a wild assumption as I really like "Inland Empire" a lot and have watched it many times. Having said that I didn't think it worked well on the big screen but there we are. I also really like the cinematography in Inland Empire but I don't think anyone would describe that as flashy.

 

I don't have to do much to avoid watching films either at the moment as I have very poor access to the internet.

 

I'm interested in anything that David Lynch does and if I get the opportunity some time I am sure I will see it.

I'm probably just not going to seek it out right now.

In Topic: How to get the clearest image with 16mm

24 September 2017 - 01:53 PM

 

I'msoftness and over-grittiness of 16mm, and it seems this often happens when pushing the stock too far with underexposure. 

 

How should I treat exposure with film to get the most "grainless" image? 

 

 

If you are planning on shooting Vision colour negative then you want to try and OVERexpose the negative by approx 2/3 stop. 

 

Hope that helps.

In Topic: Baltar 75mm lens mount?

10 September 2017 - 10:54 AM

It looks like it could possibly be OCT-18 to me. 

A bit of a weird idea for a Baltar lens though but the tab thing is a characteristic of OCT-18 as are the mickey mouse ears. I can't tell if that is the case though as one of the big differences is the diameter of the mount but Arri Standard and OCT-18/OST-18 look very similar.

 

The focus dial doesn't move as the entire lens is supposed to roatate in the mount.

That's what the tab thing is about too.

 

IIf I had to guess I would say that it was Eyemo Eyemax mount  especially given that it is a Baltar lens.

I can't tell the size/scale from the photos though.

In Topic: Excessive "Party Gels"

10 September 2017 - 09:03 AM

"Star Trek 3: The Search of Spock"

 

 

It's "The Search for Spock" isn't it David?

Sorry couldn't resist.

 

Anyway what do you think is going on in that Gone With the wind still?

I like it but I was wondering if they were trying to make him look a bit demonic or if it's just supposed to be something about red hot passion?
