  5. I'm short of words just the words "Good night, and good luck" come in mind my condolences to the family. /Jan
  6. Thank you both for your insights. The reason I asked was because I remember reading somewhere in the red department of this messageboard, that since DI was introduced (with 2k resolution) people in this industry have had their standards lowered in terms of quality/resolution of movies on the big screen. So I'm starting to wondering if Kodak & Fuji will start promoting 4k scans in the future, now that HD is becoming used more frequently in studio pictures...Only speculation, but does anybody have a theory they would like to share concerning this matter? /Jan
  7. Ok if we look back to the days before DI, when the classic contact print process was used, what kind of resolution were the prints at? most films that go through DI are scanned at 2k?Correct? and the prints contain aproximately 1.5-2k resolution? So I'd imagine that the contact prints reached around 3-4k, Is this assumption correct? Hope I can get this cleared out thanks /Jan
  8. I think youre confusing the word "pushing" with "rating". When they say the filmstock is often ''pushed'' what they mean is that its chemically pushed (processed for a longer time). When you rate this stock at 800 and because of (for example) a low light situation, then to get more detail out of the film, you ask the lab to ''push'' it to get that detail. I hope I helped in someway...but you experts please feel free to correct me or better yet explain the process better. /Jan
  9. We're all playing it, so yes I think he did.
  10. However he was a better chess player than most of us.
  11. Well for b&w film, colored filters can really change the look. A red filter for example turns the sky into dark grey (as aposed to the white sky). /Jan
  12. I'm sure that its not only the cost of the film that stopped it from being shot entirely on 65mm, wouldnt the crew have to be larger? Also dont forget that itll probably take more time to shoot it on 65mm. /Jan
  13. You might want to check this link out http://www.kodak.com/US/en/motion/support/...ablocator.jhtml choose Denmark and voila! P.S. When I ordered film from fuji neatherlands earlier this year, One of the sales person hand delivered it to me since he was on his way to Sweden anyways. It was he who told me that almost all handlugage x-ray machines are safe, in fact the films he delivered went through handlugage x-ray machine as well. The films turned out fine. I wish you best of luck on your film! /Jan
  14. Some parts of Spider-man 3 were also shot on 65mm. It seems as though advance special effects might need high resolution in order to look as good as they do...Thats my own little theory. Or maybe the directors & DoP just feel like experimenting with IMAX? What do I know...
  15. As far as I know, it is completly safe to travel with film if you take it with you as handlugage. The deadly x-rays machines are used to scan the regular lugage, the stuff you check in. Hope it helps ! /Jan
