  1. For quite some time, I have wondered how the "sticky" (as I call it) slow-motion is done, the type that you see a lot in music videos of the 1980's. By sticky, I mean a noticeable appearance of advancing from frame to frame, as opposed to the much more common fluid and smooth slow-motion often seen in movies and TV. Here is an example, if you are still wondering what I am referring to. (The link should start right at the 3:22 mark, which is where there is a slow motion of two kids in a traditional dance). https://youtu.be/BY_ozF-4IAU?t=3m22s If you are any older than 30 and used to watch music videos in those days, it will probably be familiar to you! My question is actually a two-part question: how is that effect done? And...is there a way to do this effect, or indeed even any slow-mo at ALL, with a Super 8 camera??
  2. Some of you are probably hip to this, but I figured it deserves posting (as does anything dealing with1980s anamorphic cinematography). "Black Angel" is a short film that screened in some cinemas before "The Empire Strikes Back" in the UK. Its negative was recently rediscovered. It was photographed in Scotland by Roger Pratt and directed by Roger Christian. It was a direct inspiration to the look and feel of Boorman's "Excalibur". The director's video introduction explains it all better than me. Anyway, it looks fantastic. Tristan
