  1. Season Three teaser looks interesting!
  2. Imagine if Jodorowsky was able to make his Dune....
  3. I worked on Road To The Winter Classic last fall and at least the home games for the Boston Bruins were shot with Amira and FS7 on at least one occasion. If memory serves me correctly, they did not use those codecs and different lenses, but the footage looked very similar and great! I was very surprised at how well the Sony cut in with the Amira. See if you can watch that somewhere and watch the Boston footage. We are on standby for perhaps another go at it for the Stanley Cup. When on set I will inquire and report back here, which might be in two weeks.
  4. HDMI to SDI converter for sale. Open box, but never used. $100 plus shipping
  5. While during an interview with the two XTR's, do you overlap/stagger the cameras to get full coverage? Do you start the second camera a minute or so before the first one rolls out? I have thought about doing this and want to know others experience. I know that matching lenses and the frame is very important for this, but you can cut away in the edit and then cut back to the interviewee and no one would ever know. Do you try to match the frame and focal length with the two or are they different?
  6. What happened to all the cameras? Is it that everyone is hanging on to what they have like me? It seems as if they all disappeared. How many were there to begin with? Were cameras actually destroyed because they were thought to be worthless? I have an Arri 2c in BNCR mount which I want to change to PL. I can't afford to do so now, but will wait till I can.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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/$$ and the free solutions always look fake to me. You know that right out of the box, the super 8 is what you want. I would explain this to the talent and about the limited amount of takes per cart and find out if they can do it in X amount of takes. Then plan around that. Rehearsal makes shooting film feasible. Shoot the warm ups on HD. Start looking in the yard sales and such for Super 8 crash cams. It can be done on film, it just takes a bit more planning.
  11. I find it amazing that the producers that hire us, often do the work themselves by simply clicking and dragging to one location only and they are perfectly happy with that. But when the work load is sufficient enough to hire a dedicated DIT/Media Manager, they require X software and want to know what you have. I have backed up thousands of hours of footage using Shot Put Pro on a 2012 Mac Book Pro. Sometimes I use Resolve. Zero issues that couldn't be handled immediately. Have back up gear for any contingency. I would also say that having a laptop with a second video card is beneficial. Otherwise, there are many options both mac and windows that work well enough. 16GB ram minimum.
  12. Probably $$. So he wouldn't roll out during an interview. Very nice work Tyler. Looking forward to seeing it.
  13. 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?
