  1. youre joking right? youre selling expired film that hasnt been stored properly for 6 years? haha
  2. Hey guys, I recently shot a scene outside in pretty low light conditions and decided to push the film one stop. The film came back and looks extremely different from the rest of the footage. Usually I have very little trouble with correcting 16mm but now this just looks terrible. It feels like the negative is missing color. Sooo Ive been wathcing youtube tutorials on how to white balance for two days now and trying different methods but really havnt gotten any good results. What am I missing? Does pushing film really ruin the film this much? If anyone wants to take a look at it here are the files: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hsmcdb1x6f35psq/AACm52Jn8d1bjHbGvFh1yqNga?dl=0
  3. Hey Guys, I recently shot a music video where one of the characters has moved to New York. In the pitch I included some footage I have shot myself and they liked it and said it worked. I have now shot and edited the first draft and they dont think its enough. The video is shot on 16mm and so is my so called stock footage. I want to match this. I've googled around but cant seem to find anything from 2000s until now or something that doesnt look 100 yrs old.. Do you have some sweet 16mm (or super16) of nyc laying around? Or can refer me somewhere??? Any type of shots is interesting!
  4. Hi Fred yeah I've seen it but its so god damn expensive :))) and you know... the pandemic haha. I have an A-Cam SP16, Minima and an SR2 to trade with. And the Zeiss Super Speed S16 kit + 12-120mm vario sonnar optex rebuild + 5,9mm angeniuex.......
  5. Does anyone know what the number for this is?? Or can you even translate this to film cameras? I wanna put an angeniuex 5,9mm super16 lens on an Alexa Mini but its verrrry long and im afraid itll hit the sensor!
  6. Bruce!! I just wanna let you know everything went great.. almost!! Im glad we rolled three cameras at the same time because only one of them caught the explosion. The other two i unfortunately managed to **(obscenity removed)** up 🙂 heres the iphone shot just for fun https://vimeo.com/411535703/f400c44475 Thanks alot!
  7. So just expose like I would expose without an explosion?
  8. I will in a few days blow up a car on film... but it my first one so I am looking for advice on how to expose the scene. In the scene a person will walk or run towards the camera and the car will explode in the background. Its important to see the persons face It will be shot outside during the day and most likely will be cloudy and grey as hell, I live in Sweden. I can choose whatever ASA Kodak sells but im thinking 250D or 500T. No lights will be used if I can avoid it! So what do ya think??? here's a previous explosion set up by my pyro guy and also what ours will look like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL1NpdobyH heres another one thats fun to watch https://youtu.be/7dyN-SwP4Gc?t=71
  9. Thanks Dom. I managed to line it up correctly and its now working. But my Minima is having a harder time haha, cant even lock it in place 🙂 will check this. Thanks!
  10. So I have an Angenieux 5.9mm and Im trying to put it on to my Arri SR2 but it touches the shutter. The back of the lens is goes too long into the camera. Its a PL converted lens im thinking maybe the conversion is the problem... take a look at the photos and youll see what im talking about. What to do?
  11. Sure. Send me an email olle.hjertenknutson@gmail.com
  12. I am looking for an Arri 416 preferrably in Europe. I have a nice Aaton A-Minima kit with 5 lenses and an Arri SR2 if trading is an option. But otherwise just looking to talk to someone selling!
  13. There is a shot in the opening scene that is absolutely amazing. Its the one where the only thing you see is crowded four lane freeway. Ever since I saw the film 20 years ago been intrigued by this specific shot. Soooo Im in LA right now and want to go there. Does anyone know where this is? I even brought my 16mm a-cam to try and recreate it!!!
  14. I wrote "fogged" haha.. And also i didnt tape the viewfinder for the top image only the bottom one with the mans head!
  15. Bringing back an old thread here. My film was fogged while shooting outside a while ago and I can see reflections/light in my video monitor coming from the viewfinder. In the photo I've taped the viewfinder because I wasnt sure if it actually was true I didn't have to cover it to not fog....... I aslo have like two shots where I forgot the tape and those are completly **(obscenity removed)**ed but most of the time I wanted to be safe. But maybe this thing only works if its night outside 🙂 SO.... Anyone had the same experience with their "DistantEye viewfinder"
  16. I shot this on 16mm. The quality doesnt hold up well unfortunately https://www.instagram.com/p/BvUFbgNA4Wo/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BuvU6DQAWHr/
  17. its gonna be under the water yes. at most 6,5 feet which is around 2 meters. salt water. there is going to be one person running from a jetty jumping in and i am going to follow that person
  18. Thanks Aapo, The idea is not to dive with the camera but the jump from the jetty might land me like two meters under the surface. To be sure 2m is probably a good rule. And some sort of plastic bag was my idea as well. Its also my camera, if I break it its okay.. not that i want to but im willing to take a shot at making something myself 🙂
  19. Soo I want to jump in the water with my A-Cam and would love some tips on how to waterproof it before I do it. Im thinking some sort of plastic bag would work but i dont want to put too much poop in front of the lens and distort the image too much since I want the scene to start on the jetty. Ive attached a photo of the camera, not my photo but it shows the size of it!
  20. Its not that high I think lemme see here yeah i found a photo!!! 066!! Angenieux 17-68mm f2,2 (with a separate viewfinder) Kinoptik 9mm f1,5 (the one that came with the camera).
  21. I just got a A-Minima and is looking to upgrade it with whatever items I can. Here are a few items I would be interested in (but really anything goes)! -Top handle -Video monitor -Color video tap -200ft spools -Shoulder rig(?) Thanks!!
