Hey everyone, I'm looking to rent or buy a Nagra 4.2 tape recorder. I'm shooting a movie and want to record sound on a Nagra as opposed to a typical digital recorder. If anyone has access to one or knows of one for sale/rent I would love to know! Thanks!
Alright, where to start... I'm a young aspiring filmmaker whose had a passion for making films ever since I was 6. Self-taught, I've made films all on the digital format, and recently, I've been shooting short films on the Canon Rebel T2i. I'm all for manual control, and I'm a pretty big hater of auto focus. Being that most of the filmmakers that inspire me shoot on film, and that it's (sadly enough) slowly dying, I've decided I want to move from digital to film. Now I understand that a great place to begin is with film photography. I've signed up for a photography class (showing you how to shoot and develop film) for my Junior year, and I've also been reading through the web and these forums to understand the film process. My first set of questions are: What still film camera should I begin with? What type of film should I use? Anyway to make a cheap DIY dark room setup? After some practice with that, I wish to begin filming short films (after some more tests of course) on a motion picture film camera. I have in mind using a Super 16mm camera, however that may not be the right choice depending on your responses. So here is my big set of questions for you guys: Which Super 16mm (if I should even use a Super 16mm) should I shoot with? Which film stock should I shoot on? What are the differences between types of film stock? I understand that there's the 'Ultra' modification to convert 4:3 to 16:9, is there any other way to do this (2x anamorphic lenses)? Or could the gate be easily modified on my own? Should I use light meters? If so, which ones do you recommend? What's the best and affordable way of a HD DIY telecine? I understand you can send in your film to get it processed and telecined, but which one is the most reliable and affordable? How to properly light an indoor scene? How to shoot at night (EXT and INT)? Recommended books or websites? __________________________________________________________________________________ As for my tastes and interests (as it could help you answer my questions more specifically): I love Hitchcock, Welles, Nolan, and Kubrick. Film noir has always intrigued me, and I love the look of it. I guess you can say I love low-light photography and cinematography. A modern DP that I dearly love is Wally Pfister, and I understand he shoots on film. If I asked him these questions, what would he say? I also understand Chris Nolan shot Following with an Arriflex BL 16mm (don't know which model). I love the community here, and I hope you guys can understand my switch to film as I think its the true magic of cinema. Thanks ahead of time for checking this post out and taking the time to respond to newbies like myself. I hope to deliver my style and form of storytelling with film. Thanks so much guys! *do note that I own a Bell and Howell MS 30 Super 8mm (no stock)*
