  1. Daniel, Looks great. Cinematography looks freaking nice and crispy.
  2. Update: our shoot date for the interview has changed to 1/25.
  3. Hi-- We're looking for a gaffer and sound mixer for a documentary-style interview shoot in the Washington DC area. Shooting January 24. We'll also be looking to rent a very small lighting package (we've been using litepanels for the other interviews in the project). The soundman should have his/her own gear. Please let us know via email if you're interested, or have any questions: molly(at)lyonassoc.com Thanks-- Mark Lyon www.lyonassoc.com
  4. I'm selling my Alan Gordon Director's viewfinder. It's in great shape, and includes the case and wide-angle lens attachment. I'm asking $200, but you have to pay shipping. This would cost $700 at B&H: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1953...Viewfinder.html Thanks for looking. Let me know if you have any questions. --Mark Lyon
  5. It would be nice to sell it a little quicker ;-) Reduced to $1250. Thanks-- Mark
  6. I'm selling my Letus Elite. As-new condition (used on two jobs, and unfortunately must part with it). Nikon mount. This is the version with back-focus adjustment. Includes achromat and threading for use with Sony EX1. Also includes short Zacuto rods and brackets for use with 15mm rods. Nice solid rig in perfect condition. More information here: http://store.zacuto.com/letus35-elite-with...adjustment.html Asking $1650. Let me know if you have any questions-- Mark
  7. Great question, Tim. I'm not personally familiar with the Cookes, but I've done a number of projects where we intercut shots from the Optex with various generations of Zeiss SuperSpeeds. They were all for video transfer, so this isn't as exacting as it would have to be for photochemical finishing, but the color and sharpness seemed to match the zeiss lenses really well, but I think the Optex might be a touch warmer. You can see a few examples of shots with that lens on our website. The shots are pretty easy to spot--they're the really wide-angle perspectives. It does cover Super16 just fine, and offers a really beautiful wide angle perspective with minimal distortion (for a 5.5mm). http://www.mightymaxfilms.com/item.php?ite...llection_id=001 http://www.mightymaxfilms.com/item.php?ite...llection_id=001 Talk to you soon--
  8. Sorry, Adrian--I've been shooting a ton, and haven't gotten around to putting my lenses back on the market since both buyer flaked out.
  9. Thanks Tim. Yes, it's the same lens. The guy who promised to buy it turned out to be a bit flakey, so it's now back on the market, at a reduced price. For similar reasons, I am now also returning my Optar Illumina 50mm 1.3 to the market as well, for $1000. You can see photos of both lenses at http://www.mightymaxfilms.com/extranet/lens_sale/ Thank you for your interest. Let me know if you have any questions. --Mark
  10. Hi-- I'm selling my Optex 5.5 mm T2 lens. Great condition. Covers Super 16 comfortably. Arri Bayo mount. First $2000 takes it. Email me with questions at mark@mightymaxfilms.com. Thanks,
  11. Thanks, Adrian! This is a really good example, too. Let me know if you want to talk about it.
