  1. Hi, i currently live in LA and was wondering if someone could recommend me a service location for an arri bl-3 and 2c , planning on using them soon and would like them prepped for it.
  2. Can the battery used for the BL-3 be compatible with the 2C? im afraid of burning the motor by trying it out.
  3. Im in LA, PM me if you have questions! https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/pho/d/los-angeles-canon-scoopic-16-16mm-film/6826433629.html

  5. Holy poop this is awesome! thank you!
  6. I didn't like the 2nd season too much, story wise or the look of it. I felt that the first season looked a bit better but the 2nd one looked modern despite the timeline of the story.
  7. I've been reading this whole thread this morning during work and I wanna throw in my opinion, even though im not a professional or like those who have made legitimate technical posts. I feel like cinema as its own art form has been lacking something for the last 17 years. That's not to say there hasn't been great films made but one has to assume that the rise in digital filmmaking has increased the amount of garbage made since its become easier to produce mass quantity of movies at a rapid rate and for much less than before. Does shooting on film make a film better? In my opinion the limitations and certain preparations required for a shoot on film does put everyone on a higher level of attention, more excited for the outcome and actors tend to take things more seriously as well (learning lines, rehearsing, blocking) Does film look better than digital? Digital filmmaking has come a long way, sometimes I myself cant tell the difference if its been shot on film or not but that's very rare. Most of the time young filmmakers will spend a lot of time color grading their raw files to make it look like film, even kids taking pictures on their phones! Digital filmmaking just looks way too clean, it needs layers upon layers to reach that look that film gives (and sometimes its not achievable) Television has changed, amazing filmmakers like Fincher, Scorsese, Campion have been making great television shows. It doesn't matter what format it was shot on, the best original material is coming out of television shows and that's why the quality of cinema is declining. Television is the new art house cinema. If cinema wants to survive it needs some sort of new wave or some sort of rebirth. Theres gonna come a time when people are gonna say enough with the marvel and star wars movies.
  8. Is there a way to hook up an LCD screen or any sort of small hd video screen to the Arri BL-3. I have a CEI color tap for the camera but not sure how to attach an hd LCD screen on this camera.
  9. The previous film was shot using the Alexa.
  10. How can you even rate the acting on that teaser ? you're nuts.
  11. This is it, kodak will stop manufacturing film soon. Fuji raised their prices shortly before announcing the production of their film would end.
  12. Does anyone here splice their film together (cutting out bad takes, etc) before sending it to get scanned to save $?

  14. Looking forward to your thoughts on the film. The scenes that I'm referring to as having really bad focus were non moving shots where the camera seemed like it was on a tripod. I'm just so baffled as to how the film ended up looking the way it did sometimes.
  15. I just came back from seeing this film and i must say i hated it. I saw it on a 2k screening and i couldnt believe how bad the film looked at times. Too much grain at times, other times i saw the film being blurry and also too warm at times. The beginning of the film when the main character has a nightmare and the daughter says something, that scene looked horrible. Does anyone know why the film looked so bad?
  16. I looked on their site for banana connectors but couldnt find any.
  17. The constant speed motor also has two pins.
  18. Will this one do the job? http://www.batteryspace.com/nimhbatterypack168v17v5ah84whforreplacementofdivinglightscooter.aspx and another thing, the motors have two pins as connectors. How do i go about connecting these two pins to the battery?
