  1. I need to get rid of my magazine collection. I have approximately 15 years of American Cinematographer magazines and 5-7 years of ICG. Please email me directly if you're interested. I am in the Studio City, CA area. Thanks, Paul Marschall paulmfilm@gmail.com

    I'm trying to find out what kind of lens control the Sony MC1 has. I know it has 10x optical zoom which can be manually controlled but how about focus and aperature? Can they be manually or automatically controlled? I could not find anything in the brochure. Thanks, Paul
  3. I will be shooting a 720/24pn or 720/30pn project for tv broadcast that will be archived HD but broadcast SD and would like to know the best way to get the SD master. The project wil be cut in FCP and, ideally (but not likely), output uncompressed for color correction at a post facility. What would be the best way to get an SD master? I suppose it would be best to have the post facility do it, but that may not be an option. Also, am I correct in assuming that shooting 30pn would give me a better quality down-rez to SD? Thanks.
  4. I worked on the short, but haven't seen that or the feature vesion yet. I remember that warehouse... aweful commute! I can't imagine 40 parcans putting much of a dent in that giant space. I'm really curious to see how the two differ. BTW, I'm currently working with your Key and Best Boy Grips from that feature-- great guys.
  5. Can anyone recommend any places in LA for a S35 optical blow up?
  6. Does anyone have any experience with this botique post house in LA? They have mostly done trailers but are moving in to feature DI's. They use the Nucoda Management API color correction system, which I am unfamiliar with. Their rates are great, I'm just not sure if it's because they're trying to generate new business and exposure or if they're cutting corners.
  7. Excellent answers David(s). Thankyou very much!
  8. Sure there are filmtools, studio depot, and of course expendable recycler. Are there other discount places? Looking to get ~20 rolls and would like as much of a discount as possible.
  9. Where do people like to get their supplies in LA?
  10. I know people sometimes rationalize the financial side of DI's by shooting 3perf and putting the savings towards that. Would shooting 3perf offset the costs of an optical blow up? not entirely? Roughly how much is an optical blow up? Is the only added expense the production of the new neg?
  11. So I've been struggling with how to plan post for a feature I will be shooting and am looking for input. I will be shooting S35, 3perf, 2.35. Originally I was looking to do a 2K DI, but I no longer think that is financially realistic. So now I'm considering an HDCam SR DI. If I choose to go that route do you think it would be better/cost effective to transfer dailies directly to HDCam SR or retransfer to it later? Has anyone gone through this process before and can share experiences? Is this the process Dominion: Exorcist just did? Are there other films that I could refer to see how quality would compare? Also, should I still consider an optical blow up? Everyone seems to have abandoned ship on blow ups, but are they really that inferior? Thanks.
  12. Does anyone know of lab, preferably in LA, that has comparison footage of a 2K DI, HD DI, and optical blow up-- all from S35 original?
  13. I found Kino-Flo makes an 1800watt inverter kit w/batteries-- PERFECT! http://www.kinoflo.com/site_map/rntl_invertrs/001.html
  14. Do you recall what size screen they projected on and what size projector (lumens) was used?
