  1. Very intriguing. Thank you.Wish I could post some of this, but the video is for a private corporate party and no one signed model releases.I've posted this is some other places and got very little response. Must not be a popular effect.
  2. Hi Folks: Maybe I posted this in the wrong place. I originally posted this in the visual effects section, and I'm thinking maybe that wasn't right as this isn't a big effect like multilayering or CG animatics. I have a friend who is doing a mockumentary and he wants to use some VHS video that I shot back in the 90's of a 70's party on a single chip consumer VHS camcorder. I want to make it look like VHS from a 70's tube camera and I thought about playing it on a flat screen and shooting it on a tube camera. I did something similar with some digital video and a super 8 camera with Ektachr
  3. How would it look if I shot the video off of a flat screen with a tube camera? I've done that with video and shot the monitor with a super 8 camera and made it look like quasi news film, but what I have here really needs to be tube video. I have a friend that's doing a mockumentary and I have some footage that I shot of a 70's party with a single chip VHS camcorder back in the 90's. I really want to put those comet trails on the disco ball.
  4. I'm looking to take some video shot in the 90's on a VHS camcorder of the era and I want to make it look like it was shot on one of the first single tube home video camera/VHS deck combos, circa 1978-80.
  5. That's right,Chris. I was NOT looking for a real ad. I was looking for a movie that featured a spoof ad,probably lampooning Yashcia as "Hamshika" or something similar.
  6. I've posted this scene description on several movie trivia sites as well as old movie forums and such and no one has been able to offer any information. I have an old childhood memory about a movie in which super 8 camera commercials were lampooned. I remember seeing images of this impressive looking super 8 camera that was called something like the "Hamshika Super 8". It was an impressive looking camera, kind of like a Bolex 160, if memory serves, but you saw people shooting with it and a low,husky , sexy female voice whispered the word "Capture!" all the way through the spoof commercial. The
  7. I'm attempting to re create an old horror movie TV show open that someone has managed to preserve the audio portion on youtube. I'm putting the images together from memory as it was an old childhood favorite for me and I'm sure the video portion no longer exists. The show aired locally in Charleston, SC in the 60's and 70's on WCIV, there was no host, just a really creepy open that had some images that haunted me for years and judging by the youtube comments, I wasn't the only one. Some of the haunting images were from a German film titled The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism (Christopher Lee, 19
  8. Last I saw, it was going for around 35 a roll w/o shipping, but I hadn't seen the sources you guys quoted. I've had a few serious sounding inquiries, but they backed out. I'll try lowering the price. I got these as left overs from a class I was teaching for the New York Film Academy, so I know they're all fresh. "Considering the success and new products at Fotoimpex film will not be dead soon. Don't hold your breath" That's good to hear, but outside of film schools, most of the film shooters I know in Florida and Ontario are shooting most of their projects on Reds, Alexas and DSLR's th
  9. This stock is still for sale. Email me at martyh1960@yahoo.com if interested. I want 80 bucks for the whole lot, plus 10 for shipping . I'll pay any shipping overage, if in USA. This stock was bought new June 2012 and been kept frozen. All rolls are sealed except one, which has about 80 feet remaining on it. Priced to sell!!
  10. Hi Folks, I never thought it would be so hard to sell fresh film stock at such a low price ! Had a few nibbles, but no one has shown me any money. The death of film can't be far off now, judging from what I see going for so little on all the used gear sites. Maybe it's time to start taking bets on when manufacturing stock will grind to a halt. A few years ago, I would've jumped at a deal like this. Here it is again: 6 100 foot rolls of Tri X 7266 Reversal film. Bought new June, 2012 and kept frozen. 5 rolls are sealed, one has been opened and has about 80 feet remaining on the roll.
  11. Ive got some Tr X reversal stock left over from a summer film camp I was teaching for the NewYork Film Academy. It's on craigslist so if interested, please answer there as I don't post here much anymore. http://cfl.craigslist.org/pho/3518028712.html
  12. That's another thing I wonder about, is how many people who bought home movie gear back in the day, put the time and effort into their stuff that you describe. I never saw anything that good when I was transferring film to VHS back in the 80's. The closest I came to anything that creative was a 400 foot reel of 16mm Kodachrome silent film that was a very ambitious high school production of life in ancient Rome. The film was made some time in the 40's and shot in the school's rather opulant looking courtyard which was pretty authentic looking as were the costumes. There's much more than just m
  13. Small format films are all over youtube as well as videos of folks showing off their old cameras and projectors. There's videos of Fairchild Cinephonic 8 cameras,Bell and Howell projectors and plenty of people's home movies and test footage. I'm just curious as to what happened with some of the more "exotic" small format systems and films made with them. Take for instance the Fairchild Cinephonic 8, a standard 8mm camera from the early 60's that shot single system sound on film, more than a decade before the Kodak Ektasound super 8 cartidge. I'm curious as to how many of those thing weres
  14. Yep, thats just like saying that budget has little to do with whether or not the movie is good or bad. I just remember back in the 90's if you had film on your reel, that meant you were working on something with a higher budget usually and you got looked at more seriously than if you didn't. I get a kick out of the commercials that brag that the spot was shot on the camera they are advertizing.
  15. That's quite true, however when you go to sell your services and compete with everyone else, being a film shooter meant something to the folks paying your salary. Plus, I think it's safe to say that no one is going give someone, particularly a talentless bum with no clue how to shoot film an IMAX camera and film stock and expect them to shoot somewhing worthwhile.If you're paying for film, you're not going to hire someone who's only experience is with a DV camera, regardless of how good his DV project was.
