  1. Super8 at 4K (as ruined by YouTube compression): Super8 at 6.5K (but scaled down to 4K for YouTube): Now compare the image size of Super8 with 35mm…
  2. Here, you can find a few details about the used lenses etc.: https://www.studiodaily.com/2012/02/the-artists-cinematographer-speaks/
  3. They’ve shot „The Artist“ on Vision3. The desaturation was done in post. The prints are in B&W (on color print stock): https://m.imdb.com/title/tt1655442/technical/?ref_=tt_spec_sm
  4. Thanks, my mistake, sorry - even according to the German forum, Les Bosher is still alive. But I missed this information as it was posted a week later in a very long thread.
  5. Hi! According to some German forums, Les Bosher died several years ago. But I don’t know whether this is true as his webpage is still up.
  6. Hi @Tyler Purcell, I was referring to John‘s quote as it reminded me of Ignacio’s tests done with a Wolverine MM Pro: Do you notice how the frame moves up and down (and also left and right)? So the scanner could be another cause for a bad result.
  7. Was this scanned on a Winait aka Wolverine aka Somikon aka reflecta aka Kodak aka dozens of other names? Then it’s definitely the scanner‘s fault.
  8. Contains a scene where the camera moves from outside the car onto the back seat - starting at approximately 26 seconds.
  9. This is also done in „Two Tars“ (1928). But the Hal Roach Studios have been cheating a little bit by using a convertible with opened hood. ?
  10. I would assume that some assistant simply moved a glass with some grease on it up or down… -> see attached image: Initially, you can see everything in focus, as you start with the blue part in front of the lens. Then the glass got moved up, with everything except for yellow parts being out of focus because of the grease… (Other than this, I would guess that it’s a composition of a scene shot in front of a blue/green screen with a blurry scene.)

  13. Hi! As the flower will be something like 2m away from the drone’s camera, while the background is something like 50m away, you will not be able to shoot this „in camera“ when you both have to be sharp. (Depth of field etc.) As flowers tend to shake/quiver/„whatever is the best English term“ very fast when getting transported, I would try to shoot the flower in front of a green screen at 120fps. This should turn any quiver into a „smooth movement“ when combined with the aerial shots. (Not to mention that both will be in focus when needed.) You could simply use an hair dryer or a ventilator to simulate any wind. Is it possible to simply embrace the fact that you cannot get it done properly by having an artist drawing some cartoon style flower for the aerial sequences and then have the cartoon flower getting morphed into the real one later?
  14. Looks like the dot in „safety film“ indicates the production plant and not the year (not to mention that the dot is hidden by a perforation hole on my above photo): http://www.film-tech.com/ubb/f1/t011524.html More links to information about Kodak‘s edge codes: http://www.filmforever.org/Edgecodes.pdf https://www.kodak.com/content/products-brochures/Film/Guide-to-Identifying-Year-of-Manufacture-for-KODAK-Motion-Picture-Films.pdf
