  1. See how tiny the camera is compared to the lens and the mag!!! Freya
  2. I think it sums up how weird things get when you make a posting about selling some old film and the first and possibly only person to express an interest is Phil Rhodes... Curiouser and curiouser! ;) Freya
  3. How old is vision 2. How old is EXR... Its been in the freezer but it isn't there anymore! :) Why on earth would you want to know Phil? Genuinely really curious! Freya
  4. Anyone interested in a lot of 35mm film. Mostly sealed cans Vision2 EXR etc. All 400 ft cans... Some recans and short ends... Must be at least 30 cans I think... It might be more than that... Looking for £150 for the lot but you probably need to be in London because there's so much of it.... If there is an interest I might be able to get more details so message me if you think you might want it. It's all Kodak Colour Negative. Freya
  5. There are many variations of the ACL its true and this would seem to be an original ACL. Although it does have a nice Angenieux viewfinder that is orientable. It certainly has the English mags. The motor is set for 25fps. Its not the varispeed motor. The lens seems to be in quite optically beautiful condition for its age although the body of the lens has been etched with the name of Sheffield Hallam University Fine Art Department... where it ended up after Dick Pope stopped using it. The lens was clearly looked after.. Mechanically the lens seems fine too. It comes with the power cable with the little 4 pin connector at one end and the standard 12v 4 pin XLR cable at the other. I'd love to share photos although I'm not sure where I could host them at the moment.
  6. Even nicer to see your name. I was thinking yesterday i hadnt seen you around at shows for a while... Made me stop and think a little... An example of one of those things where you think of someone and suddenly they are there! ;) Freya

  10. 16mm Eclair ACL for sale in London... Anyone interested...??? Good history/Mojo... :) Freya
  11. I'm writing an article for Broadcast Tech on Apples new ProRes Raw technology and was wondering if anyone had any opinions or ideas about the technology and how it might affect aquisition or post production. Do you think it will be a popular technology or do you think that Red already has this part of the market sewn up with red .r3d's? How do you think it will affect the future of cinematography or do you think it might not. I'm looking for quotes for my article so let me know if I can quote you on it! Freya
  12. I'd happily accept payment in Bitcoins Adrian! :) You have any leads on this? ;). Freya
  13. Thought other people might be interested in this too... Transferwise have just started a new service where you can have virtual bank accounts and even a mastercard in multiple currencies! This is going to solve some serious problems for me and I thought others might find it handy too! Here is my link where you can sign up. https://transferwise.com/u/freyap [Full disclosure: I get a bonus if you sign up via the link, although you get a free transfer for up to 500 GBP too] Been using transferwise for ages but this new thing of having local accounts is going to save me so many headaches! Presently only available to those based in Europe however although you can use currencies worldwide. Freya
  14. I think you need to look at the script and locations and work out if there are locations and situations that look different anyway that could be shot digitally. For instance in might be possible to shoot all the night scenes on digital or alternatively to shoot scenes in some other context digitally. You want to make sure that you don't end up directly intercutting the film and digital footage, so make sure that the digital footage is in new scenes. Even better if you can cut to black inbetween. If you are lucky you might even be able to make the changes in look motivated in some way, for instance if there are flashbacks in the movie then the flashbacks could be shot on digital or visa versa. If there are scenes that require more footage and they are already shot then it would be best if those scenes continued to be shot on film so that it is consistent and you aren't trying to match film and digital shots in the same scene which makes things even harder. Good luck. Freya
  15. I really like the thought put into the framing and editing in this video. Could you tell me how you are doing the crane shots though? I thought those look a bit interesting and quirky. Freya
  16. That's a bit of a wild assumption as I really like "Inland Empire" a lot and have watched it many times. Having said that I didn't think it worked well on the big screen but there we are. I also really like the cinematography in Inland Empire but I don't think anyone would describe that as flashy. I don't have to do much to avoid watching films either at the moment as I have very poor access to the internet. I'm interested in anything that David Lynch does and if I get the opportunity some time I am sure I will see it. I'm probably just not going to seek it out right now. Freya
  17. If you are planning on shooting Vision colour negative then you want to try and OVERexpose the negative by approx 2/3 stop. Hope that helps. Freya
  18. It looks like it could possibly be OCT-18 to me. A bit of a weird idea for a Baltar lens though but the tab thing is a characteristic of OCT-18 as are the mickey mouse ears. I can't tell if that is the case though as one of the big differences is the diameter of the mount but Arri Standard and OCT-18/OST-18 look very similar. The focus dial doesn't move as the entire lens is supposed to roatate in the mount. That's what the tab thing is about too. IIf I had to guess I would say that it was Eyemo Eyemax mount especially given that it is a Baltar lens. I can't tell the size/scale from the photos though. Freya
  19. It's "The Search for Spock" isn't it David? Sorry couldn't resist. Anyway what do you think is going on in that Gone With the wind still? I like it but I was wondering if they were trying to make him look a bit demonic or if it's just supposed to be something about red hot passion? Freya
