  1. In general I like a good story to go with it, but I could understand how there could be songs where that doesn't really fit. As far as the flashy things, they're okay when done in moderation. The problem is, that they usually seem to end up being a crutch, and it ends up being like what Hitchcock described as "just pictures of people talking." That's why I've always really enjoyed Aki Kaurismaki's work, he's done some good visual storytelling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AY_xjLlCws https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DoxWBZ8ekI
  2. I don't post on here much, but I've certainly found a lot of helpful information on here. This site is a much better place to post at as a female than many other places. A lot are certainly much worse. It's not as anonymous here, I suspect that plays a large role in that.
  3. I do a lot of statistical analysis at my day job, and it always aggravates me to see people make claims about the percent of people meeting some criterion being disproportionate while not accounting for the composition of the population they are trying to discuss (I'm not disagreeing with you). I was curious and had a few minutes while my lunch was cooking to do a quick look. I went to the list of Oscar eligible films from 2019 on IMDB (link below), which lists 341 eligible films. I drew a random sample giving each film a 20% chance of being drawn, but which will not necessarily provide a sample of 20% (when we talk about things like probabilities, we're talking over a large number of instances). This resulted in a sample of 60 movies. I looked to see who was listed under cinematography for each one. Five of them listed a female solely, while two listed 4-5 with 1 female in the group. There were several films for which this information was not listed. That's a marginally higher rate than the 5% listed in the article, but given the sample size, I seriously doubt it's a statistical difference. This isn't a perfect look at things, but it doesn't appear the 5% is that far off based on this . (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls093754362/?st_dt=&mode=detail&page=1)
  4. It's a shame when stuff like that ruins things. Do you know if it will be released at some point? Kodak still shows it on their site.
  5. I remember seeing about that camera Kodak was supposed to bring out, I didn't realize this was it. It's a shame they haven't got it out, looks like it takes some nice images.
  6. Apparently they also made a limited run of super 8 cameras. Some nice looking footage

  8. I haven't seen that series, but did come across this from another forum a while back https://vimeo.com/ondemand/lostemulsion I haven't watched it, but it looks like it could be interesting. I picked up an old projector a while back, then started poking around at old films. It's real neat to see some of the things people filmed in the past that's still floating around. Shows a lot of insight into society in the past I hadn't really thought about. Along the way I ended up with a couple old peep show reels. I've really gotten into those. I had never really thought about the history of erotica like that. A lot of people like to bemoan things like that as showing the decline of society, but it's something that's been around for a while. I really enjoyed seeing The Three Graces for that. Anyway, glad to see people out there saving these things before they fade away completely! Also, glad to see your videos restored!
  9. Sorry to hear that. That is one of the frustrating things about online, it's so easy for things to just be wiped away arbitrarily. I have enjoyed seeing these videos you post. It's good someone's saving some of these old obscure films, and they're interesting to see.
  10. I'm also interested. Some pictures would be nice to see. If not want to post, you could email them to leanne.summers@protonmail.com Thank you
  11. Hi all, I have an issue with my K 3 running fast. I've used it several times before, but this issue arose during my last use of it. Wile filming, I went through several wind cycles. On the final one, I wound the camera and it worked as it's supposed to for about half the cycle. Then it just started running very fast. For reference, it goes through a full winding in 13 seconds at 8 fps. If I adjust the speed control, the speed increases and decreases as it should, but still runs fast. I have not been able to find any sort of information on this particular issue, and was wondering if anyone might have some insight into this problem. Any insight you could provide would be appreciated.
