  1. Greetings community. I'm on a trip in Israel, shooting with my ARRI S and DOM ANIMATION MOTOR / CONSOLE / CONTROLLER and there is a slight issue which I believe is being caused by the frequency difference of 50Hz here in Tel Aviv verses 60Hz where I tested and ran the motor. When I set up the camera and animation stand the shutter would rest closed, and as each frame advanced it appeared to be giving me a full rotation and taking a single image, after about 20 or so frames, I noticed that the shutter was actually 'drifting' slightly out of alignment, eventually resting in the fully OPEN position. Is this a matter of Frequency Conversion ? Could it be another issue? Solutions? Thank you for your time and suggestions.
  2. Greetings from MONO NO AWARE in Brooklyn New York. For anyone interested, our technical engineer created a design for an at home linear processing machine that can be built for less than $400 from common hardware components and 3-D printable parts. The machine is capable of processing 16mm and Super 8mm motion picture film formats. The specifications were announced publicly an international laboratory meeting held last week in Mexico City at Estudios Churubusco. (attaching some images to this post from the lecture / presentation) Should anyone have interest, please send a private message and we'll arrange to send you a printed companion booklet so that you may build one for yourself.

  4. Greetings. I wanted to share some information about upcoming workshops here in Brooklyn all on celluloid. I know that a lot of the schools I visit, there are not a lot of opportunities to shoot 16mm let alone 35mm. Here is a chance to learn the ARRI 435, shoot on 35mm, get the film processed with a work-print and HD scan for less than actual cost through the non-profit MONO NO AWARE. http://mononoawarefilm.com/35mm-oct In this class participants will gain hands on experience shooting 35mm film. Curriculum includes film stock choices, exposure, lenses, how to load, focus, run, maintain and operate the Arri 435 camera kit. Participants will spend one evening familiarizing themselves with the camera package, and the weekend will be spent shooting as a collective crew for each other. The goal is to shoot a short film on 35mm which you conceived, directed, and shot independently. We will also discuss how to promote your short piece through a list of friendly film festivals. All materials will be provided for. Finished projects will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party. FRIDAY: 10/6 from 7:00 – 9:15 PM SATURDAY & SUNDAY: 10/7 and 10/8 (DAY SHOOTS) from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Free Screening Party on Sunday November 19 at 7PM LOCATION: Center for Performance Research (CPR) 361 Manhattan Ave, Unit 1, Brooklyn, NY INCLUDES: 1 classroom instruction session, 2 day shoot, 1 400 ' roll of 35mm, film processing at ColorLab, access to camera equipment, informational course packet, HD transfer of film by Metro Post, HD online hosting of finished film, local & international film festival entry waivers.
