16mm equipment.

Here are a few pics of my current 16mm setup. A Bolex H16 with a 10mm Switar, 15mm Som Berthiot, and a 20-80mm Sony TV zoom. Still waiting on the 150mm Yvar, as well as the Miller fluid head, Bogen legs, and the cable release adapter/10mm viewing attachment.


Recent acquisition.

I've purchased a Bolex H16 camera on eBay, as well as a Sony 20-80mm f/2.5 zoom lens and a 10mm f/1.6 Switar prime. This should give me plenty of options, but if I can clean/use one or both of the lenses that come with the camera that would be good also.


Near the end.

I'm almost done adding sound. A couple different mixes will be produced, and I'll take the best parts from each.

Here are six frame grabs from the project (apologies for the FCP controls, I didn't have time to crop them).



Work has lagged... even though adding in sound is very rewarding, it's also extremely time-consuming to gather each sound. I have most of them ready except for footsteps on various materials, but I haven't added them to the project yet. Unfortunately I may also re-transfer some footage, so this would probably change the cut points. If that's the case and the picture isn't locked, there's little point in working on the sound at this point. I have to decide what to do about the transfer, and then I'll either take care of that or continue with the sound design.
