Super 8 Take Two
I’ll be playing around with Tri-X this afternoon. I hope it turns out good, because this idea was actually planned! Still have one more cartridge to use before I get this business developed. A cartridge of 100D. What to do… Any ideas, Tumblr?
Coen Bros & Bechdel: The Man Who Wasn't There
This was one of the Coen Brothers’ movies that I hadn’t seen prior to committing myself to this journey. It was shot in color but then converted to black and white. If anything, it’s a beautiful film. I do like this film…I think. I think I like this film. You’ll see what I mean. The test… Are there two female characters in the film with names? Yes. Do they talk to each...
I may know the very least about lighting
This may be the case. That being said, I’m very much in a moment of experimenting and a “fuck-it-all, let’s learn” mentality. The following question, I hope isn’t a silly one. Does anyone recommend a budgetary conscious lighting kit? That is, one that’s not so expensive?
filmme-fatale asked: You're cool as hell, son. I encourage you to post this for all of Tumblr to see.

I Still Shoot Film: 11 Reasons To Shoot Film →
istillshootfilm: 1. Film is cool. Seriously. The scientific process of capturing an image on film, developing and then printing it on paper is one of the most awesome thing you can ever see. It’s like magic. 2. Film produces a tangible result. In the modern world, technology has allowed us to do everything…
Film Tumblrs are awesome: My First day of Super 8
The enthusiasm that many of you have about my experimenting is encouraging. I love you guys. I shot one cartridge of Ektachrome 100D this afternoon. Simple shots of buildings on campus. I have one more cartridge of the 100D, as well as a cartridge of Tri-X. I have a very specific plan for the Tri-X. The internet says that I don’t need to notch the 100D. It’s difficult to find info...
My Super 8 film is here!
Squee! No. Idea. How to use it. Read some small stuff online. Bought some books that haven’t shown up. I’m going to wing it with this first reel. Play around, try to remember what I’m doing. So psyched.
Detroit Independent Film Festival →
The Detroit Independent Film Festival (DIFF) is in its second year. Venues are throughout the metro Detroit area. From the Uptown Birmingham 8 to the Burton Theatre to a ton of venues inbetween. Running from tomorrow, March 9th, through Sunday the 13th, if you’re in the area, you should give it a shot.Ticket prices vary, but they’re pretty damn cheap. I’m so excited to see the...
Coen Bros & Bechdel: Miller's Crossing
[Note: Hey! I’m still doing this! I took a different approach with this one. By that, I mean I read some shit and I wrote almost twice as much. I hope people still care about these] Ryan P. Doom closes his essay on Miller’s Crossing (from the book The Brothers Coen: Unique Characters of Violence) by stating “The Coens have no interest in creating something to reflect the real world, so why...
huhuhuhuhuhu: Deadhand film update →
filmme-fatale: iscaro: Sorry for the lack of posts lately; I’ve been revving up for the first shoot of Deadhand on March 12th. We’re filming a really cool out-of-body experience scene in an abandoned hospital in Jersey City. The hospital serves as a map for Maria’s (the main character’s) subconscious; her insecurities and desires, and the things she feels forced into against her will....
Ahh! I never even saw what you wrote about my original super 8 post. I tried to find an “ask” button of any kind on your page to start us a private dialogue, but I could not find one. To Herbt and everyone else, I am very excited about my Super 8 Film camera. I hope it’s not a “crappy” one (It’s a Canon 310 XL). If it is, I don’t care. I’ll play...
yo yo bye bye: Rejection: The Sequel →
The more I think about it, the more I absolutely want to. I’ve found one that has no bids, that has a buy-now option at a decent price, and it’s looking pretty nice. However, the problem is that I have no fucking clue how to work it. I’m not sure where I’d pick up the film to use it. But do I want to? Oh, goodness, do I want. Appreciate the thoughts. More are, of course,...
Rejection: The Sequel
Due to money constraints, I could really only enter two film festivals. I was rejected by both. However, this encourages me all the more to pick up a film camera off of ebay. Super 8, to be specific. But I realize I’m not thinking this through. TUMBLR, should I do this? Should I look for a different type of film camera? Or should I just do it? I’ve never been able to work with film,...
