  1. When you are done with conforming to the specs, look at your final work on TV to see how it holds up. There are all sort of TV's, but generally the TV's boost the contrast and saturation. What looks good on my monitor, looks so-so on the TV. In the end I just have to make a good enough grade that is all-purpose. Other option is I have to make grades for various viewing options. Just because it conforms to specs does not mean you are happy with the results.
  2. Shadow Telecine S 35mm and S 16mm film HD SD magnetic and optical sound. | eBay Looks like it was $$ when new, but if you can't get a scan out of it, what good is it. Everything is sold as-is, so it is a crapshoot.
  3. See photo: Movavi Sound Gap From MP 4 Converter : D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C. : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive The Nero software does the sound perfect, but the video is a crapshoot. You may get flashes or artifacts with Nero. The Movavi software does the video great, but the sound is usually off synch. It puts a short gap near the beginning of the audio track. I wrote the Russians to ask why their software does not synch the audio when converting, but they are of no help. I have to cut the audio up and close the gap, then the synch is fine for the rest of the
  4. Anne Shirley is all but forgotten nowadays. She played in Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne of Green Gables just to name a few of the many films she was in. Anne Shirley (actress) - Wikipedia Here is a clip from M'Liss...a cute 1936 film with Anne Shirley.

  5. Another option is the Sony Optical Disc Archive. Depending on the model, the cartridge's hold up to 5.5TB of data. But they are pricey machines. Cold Data Storage Technology - Sony Pro Sometimes you can pick up one of their earlier models a lot cheaper used, but it only holds 1.5TB per cartridge or 3.3TB sony optical disc archive | B&H Photo Video
  6. What type of software make the grouped up photos of multi screen shots into 1 photo. WOW!!!16mm HOME MOVIE OF THE 1952 INDY 500 IN SUPERB KODACHROME ONE-OF-A-KIND!!! | eBay
  7. If you got a bunch of takes, how do you grade them for prospects or somehow mark them for hierarchy when editing?
  8. I figured it might be for this reason and Google confirmed it... Why do studios use Roman numerals in the copyright notice in the end credits? - Movies & TV Stack Exchange
  9. In the old days, on big productions, they did lots of lighting and film tests. This was done way before the actual shoot using stand-ins. Nothing was left to chance. Deakins said he did something like 56 takes for one scene in 1917. Nowadays you pick up a cam and boom you are in biz. It is not like the old days where you worked your way up. Times change. If you get a gig and are over your head, hire a consultant to help you out. Or do some tests!
  10. This was the last style of film shipping and storage container until VHS took over. 16mm Movie Film Plastic Shipping Case D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C. : D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C. : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive
  11. Here is what can happen (or worse) to acetate film stored poorly or just from time. The 3 Graces 72kb-4.32mb D.D.Teoli Jr. : D.D.Teoli Jr. : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive (It is also an example of resolution from 72kb-4.32mb. You can download the various files to magnify and inspect how image quality varies with file size.) If you got some important film with vinegar that is decomposing, you put it on a core and vacuum pack it. Then store it in freezer. Freezing halts the decay. You can also reverse wind film to help with warping. But no magic bullet. A
  12. Here is an example of the old humidor film cans. They would saturate the absorbent material with camphor. Although some of the old films stunk of mothballs. Everyone had their own pet preservative to use. Internet Archive Search: humidor 16mm I have some more example of film can humidors, but need to get them photographed. I store my 16mm 100 - 200 foot reels in 5 x 5 x 1 inch white cardboard boxes. They don't make vented cans for them. Film hoarders / collectors / archivists can amass a huge amount of films. 3, 16mm 800' FILM with canister random mixed, educational,
  13. Boxes breath better. I use vented cans for degasing. For 8mm I use envelopes. The vented cans for 8mm are poor. Old timers would use humidor cans with blotter material inside saturated with camphor. I got some photos of them at the at the I.A..
  14. Deakins has full commentary on Bluray of 1917. Also separate commentary by Director.
  15. Could be original camera negs, but it is all processed film I deal with, not unprocessed. I think the filmmakers would just store the film in the original cans they came in or similar cans. (before and after processing.) Film shipping containers is an interesting filed of study, just like film reels. But I only go into it with small gauge films. Here is that heavy metal film shipper I talked about along with a lightweight fiber container from the 1950's.

  16. OP, don't buy it. I'm not saying film may fluctuate some in price, but nothing dramatic as you seem to suggest. Silver is just a little part of film's cost. Remember silver skyrocketed in 1980s. Cost didn't kill film back then...digital eventually did. Silver Price History Silver Prices - 100 Year Historical Chart | MacroTrends
  17. I just happened on this old post by chance from a search on a different topic. This little video I originally posted about was the start of a big project called Offshoots...a social documentary study of Instagram. But I had no idea of the direction I was going in. Things just started to come together after a while. Offshoots turned out to be a 6.25 hour film. But nobody wanted it as to the length. So I cut it down into their respective subject categories and had a little more success with placing bits and pieces of it. I think there were 60 or 70 smaller derivations and prelims from the f
  18. Forgot to mention... All the film I am referring to is old school acetate. Modern film stock doesn't get VS.
  19. All my film is processed film OP, so here is my perspective on it. I store my archival footage in vented plastic cans to minimize VS. Film can also be vacuum packed and frozen on cores. But that is what an archive may do with a problem child that has VS. Most people don't freeze film, although archives try to keep them cool. I ship films directly in metal cans or cans in cardboard boxes. The films shipped in cans direct are usually cheap films I am disposing of on eBay. If I wanted to get a scan I'd ship the can in a proper box. But either way no issues with shipping direct in cans.
  20. A very nicely done VHS video from my Archive made in 1993. Internet Archive Search: Music Boxes Automata Singing Bird Boxes Teoli
  21. I just added some more field recordings to the I.A. audio collection. 100 sound files so far. Internet Archive Search: sound effects teoli If you ever need robocall audio for a project, here are some I did as well. But I don't put my name on them. Internet Archive Search: robocall ddtjrac
  22. I've mentioned this before. But recently came upon a great example to illustrate how color prints can get ruined when displayed for any length of time...even in room light. Why you never display original color prints… – Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection (wordpress.com) Always display high quality copies of the color print, never the original.
  23. Go on eBay and look at film stock. Many times you can buy 400 - 800 foot rolls for few bucks plus media mail shipping. 16mm in Film Stock for DVDs and Movies | eBay Just make sure to get double or single perf as needed and no VS. I bought tester reels for under $10. If you want unprocessed film it is very high $$. Same with white leader. But you may get lucky and someone will give you some film.
  24. Yes, that was kinda what he wanted to do. He told me he didn't have a Blu-ray burner, so he wanted to have a friend in the USA with faster internet download the material and ship me a thumb drive. (He would not say what country he is in, but I guess he is not in England.) It got to be too much of a hassle / expense for me with the additional complications involved. I was not that interested in his footage. But the price was cheap, quality of scans was very good and the material was 'interesting enough,' so I thought about acquiring for my Archive. But once you involve more people and $$
  25. Don't think he offer ProRes. He gave me a sample of the DNxHR to download. It worked fine with Movavi.(the software I'm using.) Only issue was it took +/- 3.5 hours to download 1 GB sample. The total purchase is about 40GB+. So not that practical to download. I have asked if he will put them on BR-D and mail them. Internet in Rustbelt is very slow. BR-D is about .80 cents each and hold 25gb each (22.5gb actually.) They got hi-cap BR-D that hold 50gb and 100gb (actual capacity is less) He may be in England, so postage is an issue, but what the heck. Even with $$ postage it is
