  1. There's a 16mm Moviola on craigslist (in L.A) that looks to be pretty clean. Might be cheaper than renting. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/pho/d/los-angeles-16mm-upright-moviola/7277909016.html
  2. If you require a 2K scan and shooting Super 16 you you could shoot a 4x3 chart at the beginning of your roll and tell the scanning operator to punch in and frame his scanner to your chart so you get 2048x1536. Or you can just tell them to frame full height right in the middle of your S16 frame but human error could crop the wrong way.. That's assuming you will see those frame-lines in your viewfinder for framing. This way you would get a 1:1 capture. Or you can get 4K scan but if you're requirements are 2K you're going to pay extra for 4K and get a sub 4K result in the end. You can also
  3. What is difficult is to make a scanner that can actually make high quality scans on par with commercial machines. You need to figure out a flat even light source(RGB lamp system hopefully), camera triggering and synchronization, create software for light and drive controls, find a great copy lens etc. Then when you start seeing images you have to find solution for dense negatives, dusty scans, steadiness, multi formats 16/35 and a lot more stuff you didn't think about. It is difficult but VERY rewarding when you get it right. And it's expensive to make great scans. There's a rea
  4. The Arriscan should give you a nice log transfer of your negative so you can adjust everything you need in your grade.
  5. I have a couple printer projectors mainly used for scanning but I have a special one with camera and all ready for opticals. Going to start with basic stuff and go from there. I'll post tests here if i get to process some file with the tank 🙂 It's printing now I will see tomorrow am.
  6. Thanks Chris for the super detailed explanation ! I printed the retainer this afternoon and started the spiral, I think I'm printing it the way you explained. See picture. My printer is pretty tuned in so let's see how this one goes. Hoping this will work - I can really use this because I'm about to do some optical printing and I don't want to have to go back and forth with the lab for my initial tests. I have some QWD Ecn-2 kits I can put to good use. https://quietweredreaming.com/product
  7. Thanks for sharing this this is awesome - any tips on printing the spiral - there's a lot of overhang underneath what do you do for supports? I use Cura.
  8. Looks like a very small vertical scratch on the negative. I would scratch test the mags.
  9. Personally I would not touch the grain, I skimmed through your film, looks beautiful! But if you really want to tone it down, Neat Video works great. Never had good results with Resolve probably because I don't know how to use its denoising feature correctly.., Neat Video is easy, and you get great results. Never used it on film footage though, only on video to remove the digital noise so I can add film grain in post.
  10. Can't help with iMovie - but I would suggest installing Davinci Resolve, it's free and you can do everything in there including resizing clips to any aspect ratios.
  11. Cued a video about Kubrick's solution to pulling focus with the F0.7 lens in Barry Lyndon.
  12. Interesting - This phenomenon also appears on daylight footage. See picture: I always find night scenes with point lights like cars, street lamps, signage more pleasing when it's shot on film but also cool that you get some of it on daylight footage too.
  13. The issue is that his demo now appears on "mainstream" sites (see the Polygon article) and a lot of people who read the article won't have the education or experience to know or understand what you listed above. Here's an excerpt from the article: "...as Yedlin tells Polygon, when screened in theaters to an array of industry professionals, almost no one could tell the difference." So if Yedlin went a little further with his test and shot the points you listed out, and I would also add to your list a shot of cars at night with red tail lights and front lights so you see the nic
  14. I have no idea.. you can call them they're in L.A. What is "gimmick shooting" and why do you care so much about how many?
