  1. Hello, I am a DP selling a Transvideo 10.4" Monitor. It has been well taken care of and works great as a directors monitor, etc... It is also a great monitor for anamorphic projects beacuse it has the built in squeeze for monitoring the anamorphic image directly from the video tap. It supports SD not HD. Has a couple of marking from use but sill in great condition. Check the ebay link below, it is a NO RESERVE auction. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Transvideo-10-4-SD-Monitor-f-Arri-Arriflex-Red-/200646976641?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb77de481#ht_500wt_1090 Please feel free to ask any questions.
  2. Hello, I am selling a well cared for transvideo titan kit. Has some signs of wear, but works great. It is an ebay auction. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Transvideo-Titan-TX-RX-kit-f-Arriflex-Red-Arri-/200644576897?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb7594681#ht_758wt_1075 Any questions please feel free to ask.
  3. Hi karel. That´s a pretty nice video example, it looks very interesting and seems it can lead to very creative choices and experiments. The star cutout does in fact seem to far away from the lens and wouls seem impractical for film use and I also think in his case it didn´t matter that much because he was still going to use all his zoom in order to get close enough to the city lights and de-focus them sufficiently to see the bokeh. His video camera has much more depth of feild than a 35mm film camera so he had to reduce it by zooming in more. But judging from another video on there ---http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaA-8p9EScw--- using a 35mm still camera, she attaches the cutout directly on the lens and still gets a nice defined bokeh. Im guessing (could be wrong, if so someone please correct me), if you attach a cutout directly on the lens, the quality and definition of your bokeh shape will depend on how large or small the opening actually is. Kind of like depth of feild in function to the T-stop. The interesting thing is that you could even control the definition of your bokeh. Will definately have to test this sometime. As for the AC article, im sure it will eventually and hopefully be available online sometime soon. What do you think?
  4. In the wachowski´s Speed Racer, They crated a heart shaped Iris so they could get Heart shaped Bokeh. You can see it in the scene when speed racer wins the final race and he is kissing the girl. It looks pretty awesome and creatively opened a whole new world for exploration. You can read about it in May 2008 article of AC.
  5. You should probabbly check out: 1- Rushes, en English based company with a Mexico City office. http://www.rushes.com.mx/ 2- New Art Digital http://www.newartdigital.com.mx/ 3- Ollin Studio (don´t know if they do transfers but almos shure they do) http://www.ollin.com.mx/ You can find the telephone numbers on the pages. Try and avoid Churubusco Studios because it is a government owned and sponsored business and are known for not doing a great job. Good Luck
  6. Werner Herzog´s ---- Lessons of Darkness every time I watch it, the photography moves me. It is beautiful and poetic I can´t even think how it was done !!! hope you watch it
  7. thanks I just wondered why thery did it but now I know!!!111 best regards
  8. Hello to all!!! I was just wondereng if anyone knows what type of gels are used in lighting scenes that have a notable color saturation of the light? Just to give some examples, as in City of God or Far from Heaven. Please feel free to comment other films or ideas about gelling the lights. Thank You!!
  9. Well first of all, the aaton is a quieter camera beacause the movement mechanism is caused by a series of magnets so it is smoother as it pulls the film. Of course both are great cameras but the aaton is lighter and alot easier to handle movement with it. maybe yo could also check out the aaton A-Minima, which is almost as good as the XTR but even lighter and smaller thus making things much easier on the set. Either one will work well but try Aaton for a change, maybe youll like it!
  10. Thanks for the tip on the home made kameo light, it sounds easy and simple to manufacture!ª!! Also today I went over to the rental house and askd for the kameo light and saw it. It´s really cool and easy to use. Has a nice quality of light. Well this is a great Idea hadn´t thought of it, Im gonna have to go and test this!!! thanks
  11. Hello, I have a question about T-Stops. Why are there T-Stops in numbers such as T/1.7, T/1.9, T/1.3, T/2.1 if those numbers arent even thirds of a T-Stop. What does this mean?? Thank you!
  12. Thank you for the tips!!! I will have to go and experiment these things. I will deffinately try them out and will let you know how they worked and try to I find another way. This technique is the one I commonly use and it does look really neat thank you. Just one other question to rajavel... How do you place the cameo lighting on the lens? cheers!
  13. Hello!! I am wondering how to light-up the eyes (meaning having a glow or reflection in the iris) of an actor. What are the different techniques used in various situations as close ups, medium shots and moving shots (steadicam or dolly)??????? Thank you for your time and knowledge!!!
  14. Here are many ahots that I like In Tarkovsky´s STALKER a really slow dolly into a room with a bed. Beautiful!!! In Antonioni´s THE PASSENGER the last shot In Antonioni´s RED DESERT, the shot when julianna is in the garden looking at the scenery In NIGHT OF THE HUNTER the unerwater shot with the dead woman and the seaweed
  15. you can also watch Pierrot le Fou, amazing color cinematography!!! A very intelligent use of color by Raoul Coutard
