Almost a year ago I modified my Arri SRII film camera to Ultra 16mm, and went off to take some test shots with it. Instead of just taking random pictures, I wondered why I shouldn't make a short film to see how the camera behaves on a “real” set.
As I wrote in This postThe shoot was super unconventional and took place in just 6 hours. We wanted to shoot two full 400-foot rolls of 16mm film, but were only able to shoot a single roll due to a technical problem. Nevertheless, we managed to capture 90% of the planned recordings and ultimately get them into the can.
Then I put the film on a shelf for a while as the pandemic hit and other priorities took over. But I revisited the film in the fall for a very quick post-production process that I'm talking about in this blog post.
The movie has been done for a while, but I'm releasing it online right now as things have been so busy the last few months. If you want to see the experiment, be sure to check it out below!
This is what $ 0, a can of movie, and a couple of friends pulled together in 6 hours. If you enjoy the movie, Please "like" it on YouTube with a thumb up so other people can find it too.
