  1. Screen recorder does not record in synch off computer screen. Any idea as to why? I'm using Movavi screen recorder. I fixed it by cutting off a little of the sound track and dragging sound to start. The problem is the sound is on a delay. Sometimes the screen recorder does fine with sound. It is a crapshoot. Thanks
  2. Nice work. Very odd to see 35mm home movies. Back in the day, the old time rich would use 16mm. You had better put the details on the film. When you kick off it goes on eBay and no one knows anything about it.

  5. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/08/movies/oscars-diversity-rules-best-picture.html I don't know what it all means. Lots of rules to follow, too much for my ADD brain. I guess that is why people have to hire 'diversity consultants' nowadays. I have always said artists need freedom to work and explore. So I don't like limits placed on artists (unless they are hired for a job) to fit preconceived ideas of what someone else thinks is right from their biased and narrow worldview. I can't post pictures here (maybe that is a good thing) but here is my reply to the Academy... https://archive.org/details/virtue-singnaler-comix-dagger-d.-d.-teoli-jr.-a.-c.
  6. https://www.redsharknews.com/is-this-the-end-of-the-cinema? I read a comment there that poo-pooed going to the movies as it is not 4K. I have not been to a movie since Feb 2020. Once the corrosive virus hit that killed the cinema for me. I used to go to a handful of movies a year. It was something different, everything does not have to be 4K. People still shoot muzzle loaders and process B&W film in their bathrooms. Low tech has its own charm. Unless you got a nice home theatre, lots of distractions at home. Being at the cinema kinda forces you to stick with the film. As an archivist I work with some really messed up films. Lots of vinegar syndrome and multi-generation dupes. It is as far as you can get from 4K. After dealing with the archival material, I'm happy with Blu-ray at home. But that does not mean I would not move up to 4K if $$ was no object. My only regret is not photo-documenting all the old time theatres in L.A. while growing up there. You take them for granted and boom...one day they are all gone.

  9. https://archive.org/details/kodak-basic-magnetic-sound-recording-for-motion-pictures-d.-d.-teoli-jr.-a.-c.-41 Hi-res jpegs, download to PDF or view. 3rd Ed. 1969 I like how they would synch 2 projectors together with drive belts. Rare archival material.
  10. Wendy, great idea to test the variables. F stop does matter with sharpness, but usually more so wide open and under magnification. I test all my lenses wide open to see how they perform. But this may not be that big an issue with moviemaking cause light can be added most of the time. With candid work you take the light you got and make the best of it. Here is an example of a 35mm lens wide open at f1.4. Some of my lenses are crappy wide open, so don't use for low light shoots. https://danielteolijr.wordpress.com/2016/09/17/the-lucky-chops-little-dicky/ Good luck!

  12. https://archive.org/details/drunken-angel-2-clips-kurosawa Read up on 'Drunken Angel' or get the DVD and listen to the commentary on censorship. Beside being a great film, it was Kurosawa's 'first' film...as in the first time he could make a film as he wanted to according to the commentary. Very lucky the American censors in occupied Japan were too busy to catch these 2 scenes or they would have ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor.

  14. OP...guess that is what separates the men form the boys. Beside ADD, I could never take it. I need to work on my schedule not of theirs. A.J. & Stuart gives you a good list. Basically it is exercise - food - sleep + genetics. That is where the boys to men come in. No matter how your train, you can never beat those with the generic propensity for toughness or whatever. You can improve, but not surpass. Same with art. You can train and improve, but it is only an act when compared to the real artistic genius. Good luck!
