Hi there, I finally have gotten my Eclair ACL kit to work, and it has been out on a handful of jobs. I love it. Thing is, I am now making a video tap for it, to try to modernize and make it an alternative to the alluring SR's, and 416's of the world. One issue though is that the repairman that made my conversion, Bernie at Super 16 Inc, made the frame lines by hand. And that's all good for myself using it privately, but it does come across as a bit unprofessional in the working world. My question is, is there anyone in the Los Angeles area that potentially could make me a custom ground glass to replace what I already have in the camera? Preferably someone that knows Aatons internals (since they are basically an Eclair). //C
I'm shooting a short in the next few weeks and the director and I believe it's content should be told in the scope of 2.40. We will not be able to shoot with anamorphic lenses, so our thought is to shoot wider than we would normally, cropping the tops and bottoms later to achieve the crop. Unless there are better suggestions from you fine folks to achieve the result we are looking for, my additional thoughts would be to shoot 6k (RED DRAGON) and finish in 4k, which would give us the additional field of view on the horizontals adding to our cheat of the anamorphic format. I'm completely prepared for someone to point out the faults in the ideas above, but in case they are correct here is my actual question. Would I be safe in relying on the 2.40 frame lines in 6k when we end up finishing in 4k, or should we compensate one way or the other to make sure the framing translates properly in the end? Thanks in the advance!
