Buyer beware. It is true that you get what you pay for, and it shouldn’t be any different when buying a film camera, but make sure the seller knows this philosophy goes both ways. If you pay good money for a camera, then you deserve what you paid for: a good camera. Expect to pay between $75 to $300 for a good working Super 8mm camera.
Using the camera on the computer and software, you can start creating films on your own. You may have documented a few events and happenings in your life or you may have done so as part of your gigs. Either way, the files on AVI are limited in viewing. They need an appropriate media player to view them.
Paint your scenes with shots that move in one direction, then quit. Don’t backtrack in the same shot. This applies to all three movements you control: panning, tilting, and zooming. This seems so simple and yet this indecisiveness shows up all over the place in the work of amateurs. You “hunt” before you “roll.” A few seconds of planning pays big dividends.
Also, there are many film events which are Super 8mm friendly and shun video all together. One such festival is the Flicker Film Festival. You like challenges? The Bentley Film Festival requires you to turn in the film undeveloped with no editing. This one is obviously made for people that are confident with their in-camera editing skills.
I don’t plan on ever seeing this movie again nor do I plan on owning it. I rather, almost, just forget I ever saw it and continue to watch the show and enjoy it. So what was this review about? ATHF The Movie? They are going to make one of those? I think they should just stick to making good short cartoons that make me laugh. I don’t want to be disappointed by a 90 minute film that won’t make me laugh. So I hope they are not making such a movie. I really do.
