  1. Vuescan works as does Photoshop. Any software that can link to and import scans from a film negative scanner, will be able to invert the image. I have many times with Kodak Portra film stock which is a close cousin to Vision 3 and the results are great.
  2. You have to clip test in order to tell the condition of the film, but 2 stops over is realistic. it will probably only suit you shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you are shooting on an overcast cloudy day, be sure to have fast lenses. Metering it at 50asa on anything but the brightest of days will give you lots of grain.
  3. You can use it to make all the individual frames into a single video clip. Make sure you have all the images in order in the same folder. When in resolve, it will see the images as one video, you can output to any number of video formats.. The program has a rather high hardware requirement, but the free version is very capable.
  4. Are you trying to match the two formats to look more like each other? If trying to make the hd look more Super 8, than perhaps shooting off a monitor might help you. Dan's suggestion of shooting the short end of a roll as a test is great. I highly recommend doing that. I would try to source a 4:3 flat panel monitor. Make or purchase a hood for the monitor. You could do all this one frame at a time, maybe if you shot at anything other than 24fps. Not sure which stock you are using, but perhaps underexposing to boost grain is preferable. But in the end, it may very well work out to be the same or more work going the digital route. I feel that HD can kind of pass for S16mm or 35mm, but Super 8 never quite makes it. It takes some time/$$ and the free solutions always look fake to me. You know that right out of the box, the super 8 is what you want. I would explain this to the talent and about the limited amount of takes per cart and find out if they can do it in X amount of takes. Then plan around that. Rehearsal makes shooting film feasible. Shoot the warm ups on HD. Start looking in the yard sales and such for Super 8 crash cams. It can be done on film, it just takes a bit more planning.
  5. I find it amazing that the producers that hire us, often do the work themselves by simply clicking and dragging to one location only and they are perfectly happy with that. But when the work load is sufficient enough to hire a dedicated DIT/Media Manager, they require X software and want to know what you have. I have backed up thousands of hours of footage using Shot Put Pro on a 2012 Mac Book Pro. Sometimes I use Resolve. Zero issues that couldn't be handled immediately. Have back up gear for any contingency. I would also say that having a laptop with a second video card is beneficial. Otherwise, there are many options both mac and windows that work well enough. 16GB ram minimum.
  6. Probably $$. So he wouldn't roll out during an interview. Very nice work Tyler. Looking forward to seeing it.
  7. Great trailer! Best of luck finishing. Please share the finished film here. I just came to this thread, but would have suggested using Super 8. Did you consider that?
  8. Get another camera, they are cheap enough or rent a good one. I have shot that very stock on a all sorts of cameras and get great results. This was a Sankyo 255 LXL. ten bucks at a yard sale. This is a Beaulieu 4008 MkIV @ 60fps. All 500T with the 85 removed, no filtration and often full auto metering in camera. The stock has such latitude, it is nearly fool proof.
  9. For sale is my Atomos Ninja Star video recorder. It records video to Apple ProRes HQ, 422, LT. Uses CFast cards which are included. •Recorder •Atomos S2H adapter •2x CFast cards (64gig, 128gig) •card reader usb 3 •Three (3x) batteries •Charger •Many international AC adapters •Three (3x) HDMI cables •SDI cable •case Fully functional with minimal signs of use. Over $400 invested asking 250US. Willing to ship overseas at buyers expense.
  10. did they crop? IMDB states the use of cooke S4s and canon lenses
  11. Also to add a way to check your film to see if it is indeed yours is to look at the edge code. Isn't there an emulsion number there indicating stock? 7203 or 7207 in amongst other numbers.
