  1. Sorry guys. I'm a newbie here. Couldn't figure out for the life of me how to embed a video. I don't have the buttons for posting media for some reason. I also don't have a delete button, otherwise I would've deleted the failed post above. I am quite confused...
  2. <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/258354917"width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> Tyler Burns - "Knock On Wood/Frankenthaler" Shot this 9.5 minute double music video/short film on Kodak 16mm MPF (50D, 250D, 500T) with an Aaton XTR Prod and Zeiss Primes MKI over the course of almost 3 years in Oregon. Development by Fotokem (Burbank, CA) Telecine by Lightpress (Seattle, WA) Love to hear what y'all think. http://aleceagon.com http://instagram.com/aleceagon
  3. Hi there, Is this an A-Cam dii? Is it still for sale? Would you consider selling just the body? If so, I'd be very interested. Thank you, -Alec
  4. Hey Everyone, My brother and I are aspiring photographers/"filmmakers" doing everything we can to shoot our projects in the style of classic cinema. We had the privilege of shooting this music video for the Portland band "Charbonneau" on Kodak 250D 16mm stock with the Aaton XTR Prod and a Zeiss MK I S16 lens set. We spent almost two months doing principle 35mm still photography around some interesting parts of the city. We hoped that the principle would lend itself to a "photographic" style in the video. We'd love to hear some hard critiques if you have them. Don't hold back, this is how we will learn! http://vimeo.com/38742004
  5. Hey everyone, I'm fortunate to currently own an immaculate set of set of 4 Zeiss MKI prims (9.5, 12, 16, 25mm). For my next project however, I will be doing mostly static portraits so I am in the market either for super-16 telephoto primes (ballpark 50-100mm) or a zoom lens. I have hunted high and low and it has been rather difficult to find any S16 telephoto primes in the upper tier (Zeiss, Schiender, Cooke) that are fore sale individually. I am really hoping to spend no more than 5000. In this range... *Would it by advantageous for me to be in market for a zoom lens instead of further primes at this point (so as to cover a wider range, to have the other capabilities of a zoom, and because they seem to be more readily available)?....I may be wrong but there seem to be more top tier brands of S16 PL Mount zooms (Canon, etc). **Also, if anyone has any resources for dealers that might have S16 zooms or telephoto primes in stock I would really appreciate it. A lot of the dealers of this stuff seem to be very difficult to find on google sometimes. Thanks! -Alec
  6. Okay very good to hear. I'm hoping. Thanks a lot Tim.
  7. Hey everyone, Kind of freaking out here. I was in a huge hurry yesterday (stupid) and took some exposed film out of the freezer (shot over the last week) and took each can out of its double zip lock bag and pack them in bubble wrapping in a Fedex box. I noticed that condensation built up on the outside of each of the four canisters (obviously since they hadn't acclimated to room temp in the bags). Now each exposed roll was in a black plastic bag inside its canister, each of which was sealed around the edge with electrical tape---I am hoping that that kept any condensation from entering the canister but I am not sure about that. Am I totally screwed? Should I not be surprised if I have condensation damage or am I just freaking out? Thanks a lot. -Alec

  9. ya that will be important for sure. thanks
  10. Hey Everyone, I am shooting a super 16mm project on Kodak Black and White Double-X 7222 stock. I just ordered a set of 4x4 polyester color filters for my mattebox so I could play with contrast and what not (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/162548-REG/LEE_Filters_GSBW_4x4_Black_White.html). Questions: 1. Is there reason why polyester filters as opposed to glass would not be optimal for shooting on motion picture film? 2. Anything I should be aware of/other cautionary tips on shooting B&W with color filters? Thanks! -Alec

  12. Hey everyone, UPDATE: So I just tested it on a well kept S8mm projector and the bouncing is native on the film... Couple of questions: - Does this discovery point toward a "film claw/pick up" issue? - Anyone know a good place to have a Nizo 801 Macro serviced or looked at (preferably west coast USA)? Thanks! -alec
  13. Yes to it being fixable (even right now before I've had the option to test the film myself). I did a test with Lock & Load X Frames plugin for FCP and it fixed it in a jiff (much better than expected too). It's a handy little plugin, worth whatever I paid for it. ...Actually, now that I am thinking about it, the relative ease with which Lock&Load fixed it is making me really wonder about the scan...
  14. Good to know about the thicker emulsion. I'll definitely remember to bang the carts a bit. having said that, have you ever encountered anything as drastic as my issue though?
  15. Hmmm....ya I will look into getting it serviced after I rule out a Telecine error. thanks J
