Wow...... you can literally buy a tested, working vintage camera on eBay for $100 and if you want to get creative with a bullet camera mounted over the viewfinder you can add video preview and recording for a few hundred more. This makes absolutely no sense. A bitcoin miner at CES and now this? It's been nice knowing you, Kodak.
Just rented it on Amazon. Look forward to checking it out tonight!
Thanks for taking the time to talk about your approach and particularly your experience working with the folks at MarVista. I worked with them on a project a year ago and it didn't go very well, but I was convinced it was the production team and not the studio. This confirms my suspicions.
This is so refreshing to hear because I am actually attempting a similar approach right now, though I'm aiming for a slightly higher budget in order to meet the threshold for Georgia's production incentive program.
I'm currently writing and producing a contained post-apocalyptic thriller limited to a handful of characters and a few simple, abundant locations, keeping the production design as minimal as possible and focusing on attaching the best talent I can.
Hearing about your success is really inspiring and helps to keep the train moving through the darkness of developing my own indie project, thanks again!
Lookin good, still a bunch of great film cams on the list. Stoked that Carol was shot on 16mm! The 416 is a killer rig, glad to see it still getting some love.
