  1. Attached is a link to an interview where I discuss shooting super16mm and super 8mm film my new short Vengeance de los Muertos, playing as a part of the Fantastic Planet Film Festival April 18th, 2013. Among the shots, I shoot footage from a demolition derby car with a super 8 zip tied to the dash. Check it out, and let me know what you guys think and another

  3. I tried this on my canon 310xl in macro and everything was out of focus
  4. I use hyperfocal with wide lenses when I am hand holding and want everything in focus. For example, when I'm shooting promo materials for bands or whatever, this is handy method. That isn't to say that marking can be off. AND FINALLY, sometimes the markings are right, but my DOF calculator appears off. (the Kodak one for Android / Iphone). Which I don't have a geat explanation for. Albeit, not the typical AC situation.
  5. @ Paul, ahh thats right... like by scanning a densitometer strip cards... that makes sense. Looks like I'm stuck thanks for the input though, Are there any other colormatch tools? I don't use nuke. I'm a new convert from FCP7 --> PrPro CS6 for R3D
  6. I have a number of photos in which I used various chemical processes that I would like to build LUTs around. Is there a tool that would scan an image for its inherent characteristics, and replicate that as a LUT, assuming its a neutral properly white balanced image? Or am I still using the scopes and replicating it as best as I can using scopes etc...? Any help? For example, here is a photo from my Lomo LC-A+ shot on Fuji Superia 400 asa cross processed as e6, pushed +2 stops and brought to a neutral (ish) balance in scanning.
  7. I wasn't using cameras designed for sound and I shot at 18 fps, a decision that allowed me to use 2 low light pocket cams (the canon 310xl f1.0 and the minolta 401xl f 1.2). The interviews where a series of cartridge long takes. I did not use "second sticks", but I synced to words / phrases at the end of the takes and sync drifted throughout. Everything was shot in available light. For the exteriors in wasn't a big deal, but the interiors in the studio were lit by sunlight pouring in through a window and the night time footage in the clubs was all practical lighting in the venues. The Vision 3 200T really pulled the details out of what I would consider under lit environments. That said, the next question I anticipate will be "why 200T and not 500T?". I wanted a stock that I could use for both exterior daylight footage, and interior night club performances. I was very happy with V3 200T's flexibility.
  8. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I used the time remap tool in Final Cut 7. Syncing was by far the most laborious part of the editing.
  9. Here is a promo I did for the band, Voodoo Swing's new album "Keep on Rollin'" shot entirely on super 8mm. I drove with them in their '69 Lincoln Continental from Phoenix to Flagstaff then Lake Havasu along with some cutaways in and around town. Please "like", it's in a contest right now. tech specs: cameras: canon 310xl , minolta 401xl film: vision 3 200T, tri-x, plus-x telecine: pro 8mm millennium HD fps: 18
  10. Paul, That looks great! You guys always to a top notch job. Best,
  11. His approach isn't wrong per se. Because if he does that on every shoot, it will never backfire. Always dress for the occasion. And maybe he had an instance where he or someone he knew was ridiculed (or worse) for not dressing for the occasion and he was trying to pass that on to you, albeit in a clumsy way. Now whether its a necessity or not, I tend to agree with the board. I think its stance is a little conservative / overkill. And regarding the "gay" comment. I certainly don't want to turn this into a political debate, but when I read the post, the first thing that came to mind was that guy from RENO 911, prancing around as an AC on a farm and it inspired a laugh. My advise is to never make any defamatory comments regardless of your audience on a professional shoot.
