  1. Hey! I'm in preproduction for a short film we're shooting on 16mm. I'm super inspired by Chantal Akerman and her long takes. Now, my fully winded camera will only shoot for 30-40 seconds. Does anyone have any creative workarounds / tricks / etc for doing long takes in this kind of situation? Thanks! Brandon
  2. Hello! I'm planning on shooting a short doc this weekend, and before I do that I just want to ask a few questions. Here are my test rolls: The first cartridge was 200T and the second was 50D. These were scanned flat: is this the reason they look so .... grey? I like the texture of the 50D but the 200T seems off. Did I overexpose? I shot on a Nizo S560, if that makes a difference. I assume I should get 200T because I will be both indoors and outdoors and won't have that strong a light source, but I don't want it to look so drab. (I'm getting the next project colored, though, so hopefully that will make some difference.) Should I go for 500T? Let me know what you all think or if you have any other advice! Thanks so much.
  3. Hi! I have a quick question about this short: Does anyone know, or can anyone guess, how this was made? I know the Tscherkassky used footage from an old film, but did he gave the negatives? How would one go about doing something that looks similar on 16mm? Thanks so much! D
  4. Hey! Not a DP but a director. I'm shooting a short at the end of the month on 16mm, and 400' of this stock is alluringly cheap. Has anyone used it before? If it's blue-sensitive B&W, is it possible to shoot indoors? That's probably a dumb question but are there any workarounds? I'm a student and my DP is too (they don't have much experience with film but hey, should be fun). Ideally trying to get something like a Cassavetes film. Hoping someone has some tips or advice! Thanks so much!
