  1. A great series. Multiple old-time artists give advice on being an artist. See if anything is useful for you. https://www.artsy.net/series/how-to-be-an-artist ...sometimes all you need is one gem to makes things click.
  2. Onsite, offsite, in the field while working, whatever.
  3. . Great thread Guy! For the little guys this video shows how to use a single HMI on a tight budget. Also shows the difference a HMI makes with outdoor sun shots.
  4. https://filmfreeway.com/festivals Looks like there are thousands of listings. Use the search parameters to find what is of interest.
  5. Ah, that was when Waters was still hungry to be a filmmaker. In a recent interview he said he had no interest in filmmaking any more. Sad. If it is in your blood, you keep going until the end. Here is his interview: https://archive.org/details/FilthElderJohnWatersStillPlentyOfRulesLeftToBreakNPR Now all Waters talks about is his funeral plans. Back in the day I saw Pink Flamingos at one of the midnight shows in L.A. My girlfriend broke up with me in the parking lot. She said if I liked that film she was done with me.
  6. Both look good...nice job! Pentax produced some great shots in its day. I had my Nikon F stolen before a trip to Thailand. Bought a new $99 Pentax K1000 body and a used 50mm lens for $25. Was back in biz on a tight budget. I was shooting monsoon photos.
  7. OP, dunno. I try to move on with the times. I hit 'unread content' and see what is hap. I wish forum took images up to 1mb. 300kb max is always a hassle for me.
  8. Transmen (Short Version) is a social documentary video study of my tablet's screen of posts made to Instagram on the subject of females transitioning to males. NSFW...ish https://youtu.be/pSB7okyyUSs This video is part of a 6 hour social documentary video study I made of Instagram in 2019 called 'Offshoots' YouTube takes down about 30% of what I upload. (Even if I try to be careful and think it will pass the censors.) Then they ban me for a few weeks for my trouble. If they do take it down, here is a backup link for the Internet Archive. https://archive.org/search.php?query=transmen short version teoli (Although I've had the Archive take down a few of my things as well. But generally speaking, the Archive is 99% good.)
  9. Some interesting films coming up... https://prod3.agileticketing.net/websales/pages/list.aspx?epguid=c38c6c79-7580-4652-a103-3e55898dcc8b&view=tiles3&page=1& I like Red Dog. That is a tremendous amount of work doing all those interviews. Just setting em up is terrible. Maybe if you got a big crew it is not so much a big deal. You just tell people what to do. Last night I did a set up for a video I'm doing called Transmen. I spent 3 hours setting it up to shoot tonight. Was burned out. But it will produce a 25 - 30 min video when done for the 3 hours of pre-shoot effort. It is interesting subject matter too, but 3 hours concentrated effort is hard if you got ADD. My brain is more inline with 1 to 1-1/2 hours of concentration unless I want to force things.
  10. If you like grain , then use BW stock. Color film does not produce the same grain structure as BW film. You can add digital grain to color converted to BW, but it is not organic and is more like a grain screen that is the same all over the image. For BW panchromatic shooting you can get by with a yellow, orange and red filter. Unless you need a green for foliage or skin tones. I like the orange filter as an all rounder. This was shot with an orange filter on a monochrome sensor.
  11. 'Split Tongue' (Short Version) is a social documentary video study of my tablet's screen of posts made to Instagram on the subject of body modification of cutting the tongue into 2 parts aka bifurcation. My Vimeo account wont accommodate big uploads, hence the edited short version. This video is part of a 6 hour social documentary video study I made of Instagram in 2019 called 'Offshoots' The full video is too long to upload, so I broke it down into smaller subjects. Here is the individual series from 'Offshoots' which will be available on the Internet Archive by July / August 2019. Girls of Instagram Look at #metoo (aka 'Look at hashtag metoo' on the Internet Archive) Look at #metoo (Short Version) Stretch Marks Stretch Marks (Short Version) Acne Acne (Short Version) Jew Majesty Pregnant Girls of Instagram Fat Ass #Queer (aka 'hashtag Queer' on the Internet Archive) Chubblebath Mandy Blanco Dream Girl Transition (Male to female transition) Transmen (Female to male transition) Color Hair Fingernails Long Tongue Fetish Split Tongue Split Tongue (Short Version) Scarification Drag Queens Twerking Justin Day Hairy Girls Afra Offshoots was made under the auspices of 'one thing leads to another' or as old time photographer Garry Winogrand once said..."the more I do...the more I do." I started with one topic, Girls of Instagram and that one topic more or less begat all the rest of the subjects as offshoots. To give you an example of how this worked. One of the girls on IG had a tag for stretch marks. A search in that topic led to pregnancy. A pregnant girl had a tag for fetish. As I looked into fetishes, it led me to tongue fetishes such as long tongues and that led to split tongues. When studying split tongues, that led to scarification. This phenomena is not new to me. It has happened hundreds of times with my own still photography the same way. You just have to be open to them. But for me, the idea clicks in almost an instant. Maybe it is my training as a street photographer that helps me work fast...you gotta decide 'yes or no' in a couple blinks of an eye...no time to f around.
  12. I made about 5 films back in '74 / '75. 1-16mm and 4 -8mm. That was back in beginning cinema class. Had lots of censorship with my work, got disgusted and gave it up for a while. I traded a guy a motorcycle for an early Betamax recorder in '76 / '77 and one of the 'box with a lens' video cams for it. Made 4 - 5 videos. I could only keep it for a few months as I had to sell it to raise some $$. One of the vids was in interesting interview of a trans person. That was pretty rate back in the mid 70's. But lost all those early vids over time. Fast forward to modern times and have made about 10 videos and another 6 or 7 in the works. All short subject videos, nothing elaborate. And that is how I like it. My ADD wont go for long, complex projects. I like underground projects that are documentary in nature and don't involve dealing with people f2f. I'm not much of a people person. Generally speaking, movies require lots of cooperation from people . That is not up my alley. Neither are sunsets and nature, so I only work in a small sphere of making people videos with no cooperation from people in them. Most of my own work is still photography. A few years ago my low budget archive branched out into small gauge films, so have many hundred 8 and 16 reels in the collection. Just starting getting them digitized.
  13. If so, lets see it. (Unless you are embarrassed....even then, suck it up and let's see it!) Always interesting to see some of our backstory / history. From various moves, storage units and mismanagement I lost all my early films. But I do have this early one. (but not by my competence, it is just luck.) This was the 4th 8mm movie I shot from 1975. I used most of the film I shot for the project as one takes as I could barley afford the few rolls and processing to make it. I made it for the final exam of the beginning cinematography class at L.A.C.C. . When it came time for the public grading exhibition they blocked me from showing it. I guess it was a little too much for them. (In the early 70's L.A.C.C. was $6.50 a semester for all the classes you wanted to take.) This film was lost as well, but I found it in my mom's garden shed after she died. She had it in a bunch of trash packed in shed ready for dumping. I'm lucky she was kinda a clutterer and didn't get around to trashing it. It was in the hotbox shed stored outdoors in L.A.'s baking heat for 20 years. The film is a reenactment of the hoochie show Barbara performed in the carnival in the 1940's and 50's. While not exactly 'X' rated it is a notch above 'R' me thinks. I wish I had did a better job, the material is very rare. https://archive.org/details/GoneUpInSmoke https://archive.org/search.php?query=gone up in smoke teoli&and[]=mediatype%3A"movies" (Both links are for the same film. Sometimes the Archive has trouble with one of the links. YouTube wont for for it.)
  14. You brought up a good point I didn't think of. So your own or working for others is fine.
