So I have this question in my head for some time and i really don't have a clue how they did it. My best guess would be on film with some kind of light box behind the title card and gel or digitaly. But if anybody has a idea how the process is done to get this as an final image i would love to hear it! It got a film like feeling but also not. I just watched it again and now it feels like it try's to recreate film titles with flicker, leaks and grain in a digital environment. It's from a Dutch movie called Nocturne made in 2019. Very nouvelle vague(Godard) and modern nouvelle vague(Leos carax) inspired. Relatively cool movie... doesn't really have a lot of own character because most of it is a copy of Leos Carax his Mauvais Sang(1986). It has it's own story but the cinematography style is sometimes directly copied. Still pretty good copy though. CLICK HERE FOR THE TRAILER OF NOCTURNE(2019) to see examples of the title cards. Thanks in advance, David
I was just wondering if a few of the great minds on cinematography.com would be kind enough to double check what I think is a process to create white titles burned into an image when shooting on color neg. (I want to make prints directly from the camera originals- no IP. The film will only be 2min and have text over the image pretty much the whole time.) So first I shoot the image on one roll of neg (vision3). Then I shoot the titles on another roll of neg (vision3 or hi-con 7363 if I can find it) by shooting white (or clear backlit) letters against a black background. So now I have a negative of both the image and the titles (which now appear as black text on a clear background) and I then have the lab bi-pack them together and print them onto print film resulting in an image with white titles burned into it. Is this the way to go? I assume when bi-packing I would want the 2 strips from the camera (the image neg & the titles neg) to be emulsion to emulsion so that they're are both in focus, right? Does this mean I need to shoot the text reversed so the strip can be flipped when bi-packing so the sprockets line up on the same side? Also, does this mean it can only be bi-packed in the optical printer and not the contact printer (because the strip of print stock has to be emaulsion to emulsion with the camera stock and this can only be done with one strip of camera stock at a time)? I guess some of these are questions for the lab but the more feedback I get, the better. Thanks! -Chris
If you could pick one title sequence, such as from a T.V. show or a movie, which one would you pick? Why would you pick it and why do you like it so much? Mine, at this moment, is the opening sequence for the 2001-2005 HBO series Six Feet Under. Every scene of that opening is a work of art. It is all reflections, and a wonderful mix of out of focus/focus. Slight dissolve magic. Beautiful things make me happy, which is why I want to get into this business. I want to make people feel the things I feel from a good piece of film.
