A father and son team in Denmark have produced the first new super 8 camera to be manufactured in over 30 years! With wifi remote control, an LCD screen, and SD slot to record live sound, this camera is certainly on my Christmas list.
Hopefully a few make it to the states, this could be a go-to rental for music videos.
Houston folks, if you’re interested in seeing a recent short I shot come out to the Houston Short Film Fund screenings, which are part of the Cinema Arts Festival. Tickets are $10, and half of the proceeds go back to the HSFF.
I finally got around to cutting one of these reels for the past year as most of the projects I shot have been completed. I’m trying to find the motivation to cut a commercial/corporate reel but there is soooooo much footage, and the usual talking heads and b-roll stuff is far less compelling for me to edit. Anyway for that work, just check my corporate page for projects!
This morning Veronica Varlow and Burke Heffner launched the Kickstarter campaign for their movie Revolver. I was lucky enough to work with Veronica years back on a short film. During production she showed me their AMAZING trailer, and the script for their dream film….Revolver. The script is action-packed, wild, and romantic! I’m astounded that they are going to be able to make the full feature for such a small sum of money. But if there is anyone who can make $100,000 look like $1,000,000 it’s these two!
So please, visit their kickstarter, watch the teaser trailer for the film and throw them a few bucks. It’s going to be worth it!
Here is a clip from the upcoming short film “Sing-Song” by Kathryn Kane. The film has been finished, and will hopefully have a long festival life!
I did a quick first pass color correct for the film in Resolve, and these are the results.
Recently I was lucky enough to get a Horizon Perfekt panoramic camera for half price, and have loved taking shots with it lately.
The camera uses a swing lens to take 120 degree panorama’s on two exposures of 35mm film. My only complaint with this camera is that close focus is near impossible (unless at F16) and that probably one in five rolls gets shredded during rewind. It’s really frustrating, but it’s so fun to shoot with!
BTW if someone makes a +.5 or +1 diopter for this camera please SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Here are some shots that came out well in my first batch of film:
Check out a few frame grabs from a scene in Kathryn Kane’s short film “Sing-Song”. We had such a great location to shoot in!
For those of you stuck in offices the day after the 4th of July, here’s a great way to kill some time. I really wish I could have seen a show in cinerama!
Check out this upcoming feature documentary, in which I served as one of the editors. If you’d like to learn more about the film, check out their facebook page.
