Yes, that is the moment I also blinked. Joe did hint at a Hackintosh, but I wasn't really confident enough to deal with that. It is not clear to me exactly why they went - I do not believe it was lack of interest, it was something else. That Kodak sensor seems excellent but has a sorry history, considering the Ikonoskop camera also fell. Does anyone know if any other camera uses that sensor ? I understand the early demo footage the Bolex team used to showcase their camera (before one had been built) was from a security camera using the same sensor, but I don't know which model.
Joe and Elle, are you reading this ? Is there any way at all to resurrect the Digital Bolex, even if you strip down the body ? Any way at all ?
Very honest comment, thanks, but if you are familiar with the Cushing movie persona, he is all over the place here, definitely a chink in ILM's armour. If you watch a stack of the Hammer films in production order, with a few Amicus thrown in, you may well find this recreation quite unpalatable. Cushing was a gaunt and elfin figure who could have a very distinctive, commanding voice to summon a huge hidden strength, all seemingly lost here.
Of course, these are just initial impressions, and the mind does have an immersive way of suspending disbelief during entertainment. An interesting experiment I guess, but I do wince.
If they want music videos, they should allow any talent to completely express itself and prepare to be pleasantly surprised in response, instead of imposing what they think might or might not work, since they don't actually have a clue. For example if Elton wants Rocket Man to be limited to animation, he can learn Maya and do it himself, though I think his face would swiftly become the same as the photo above.
I went to the supermarket the other day, but they were all out of Alexas and C700s.
Agree, what's the point ?
I once heard that Leone originally wanted James Coburn as first choice for his Dollar Westerns, otherwise Charles Bronson as second choice, but both turned him down flat. But after that Trilogy, Leone's very next film starred Bronson, then the one after starred Coburn.
