Scanned photos on Thanksgiving. Just finished up subway sounds last night. 'Crowded Train' is a rare study in infrared flash by Ikko Kagari on the practice of 'chikan' (groping women on the train or subway) in Japan. I think it is from the 1980's but not sure. And maybe book title is wrong. Very underground and not easy to find the right info as it varies from source to source. Any Japanese here? What is the present day views of chikan? It looked like the gals were willing participates back in the day. Or were they just too shy to put up a ruckus? Araki made a little book on sex shops of Japan. Vintage stuff. They had a nightclub for practicing chikan in a fake subway car.
I have a short coming up where I'll be shooting in a subway car standing set. I need to accomplish two things: a chase for the lights within the subway tunnel and a flicker of the overhead practicals. For the flicker I'd like to see the practicals themselves. Unfortunately I have yet to scout the set as production is a mess. This is a really low budget shoot so I need to figure out something crafty. My immediate thought for the practicals was to replace the existing units with Quasar or Astera tubes (especially since the Astera can be used wirelessly). The chase and the flicker will occur in the same scene. Any advice/ideas is greatly appreciated!
This Summer I'll be in France shooting some B-Roll in the Paris Metro/subway. It will be entirely available light down there, and I'm pretty sure it's all fluorescent. How best would I avoid light flicker? Camera is an Arri 416 Plus, shooting 7219. MOS. My usual framerate is 24fps with 180 degrees shutter otherwise, but if I'm down in the Metro with presumably 50Hz fluorescents, would it make sense to shoot that footage at 25fps since it's MOS, and the 1 frame difference in camera speed would be negligible in post? I'd prefer not to pull out the shutter tool and switch the angle manually if I can avoid it. Will 25fps with a 180 degree shutter avoid flicker in Europe? Thanks!
I'm shooting on a bolex, I figure Kodak 500t is the best option (I remember reading in a topic, that it "saw into shadows well). That being said I've also heard that fuji does better with mixed lighting sources, and the metro certainly has a mix of tungsten and fluorescent. I'd also be interested in the best place to transfer it in Montreal. Any general tips for shooting in the Subway?
