  1. Hi, I have several 35mm film frames from the original star trek television series. Some are in color and some are in B&W. First, are dailies and rushes the same thing? Second, what would be the purpose of creating a version in color and another in B&W? Thanks in advance. Curt
  2. Scenario: An episode is shot. A week later another episode is being filmed but its found that additional shots are needed for the previous production. What's the protocol for this situation? Doe the current director and dp shoot these if the series is at the same sets, or is a 2nd unit brought in?
  3. Hi, I'm hoping someone here can help me out with some film history regarding the creation of dalies/rushes. What film stock was used to create b&w rushes/dalies in the '60's? Was it color print film developed differently to produce b&w rushes, or was b&w print film used? If the latter, what was the stock and its print characteristics, i.e., contrast, grain, etc Thanks in advance! Curt
  4. I found this interesting picture with a technician holding a beachball on the end of a stick in the scene. See the attached picture. Any idea what it could be used for? Color correction reference perhaps? If so, why a huge ball? Thanks in advance! Curt McAloney
  5. I think I figured it out. The slate is there, but the hard matte of the star field has cut off the rest of the slate. It's MOS, which is why the assistant is holding the slate in such a matter.
  6. It's from an editors film trim. And yes, they didn't use sound on this take. Its stock footage. But the question remains, why just the top portion of the clapper?
  7. In the picture below there is an effects/stock footage shot with just the top part of a clapper board. Any reason why one would use this instead of the entire slate?
  8. Hi All, Check out the attached pictures. These are film trims from the original Star Trek TV series shot in the mid 60's. Along the left side of the film where the soundtrack would go there are etchings. Anyone out there seen this type of thing before? I think I've figured out what the markings stand for on the top photo, but does anyone know what the bottom is in reference to? Also, who would view this? The editor? The D.P? and for what reason? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Sounds like that's it. Thanks guys!
  10. I've got a slate question. I recently came across a behind the scenes shot from a star trek episode where the slate scene number is X17. What's the "X" stand for? "X-tra?" I've seen "Alt." used for an alternate version of a scene. This scene is not shown in the final episode. Any ideas out there? Thanks!
  11. Thank you, David! I looked up Cinex strip on Google, and it appears thats what this clip is.
  12. Yes, it is from the first star trek pilot. The original size of the scan is much larger and from it I can read the top frame which 18-15C. The bottom frame is 24-15C-10B. Was this normal to have test footage with the numbers superimposed like this?
  13. Hi, Does anyone know what the numbers are in the lower right hand corner? I thought it might be printer light numbers, but in addition to RGB there is one frame with C included. This clip was made in 1964. Any help would be appreciated.
