Finally got round to transferring some of my own home movies to ProRes including the out-takes from 'Cinema in Miniature'..
 -
Above you can see a print of 'Star Wars' being recorded on American dub machines at Derann. The yellow sticker was the date the audio head was fitted so it will have seen 2 years use then.

Also Blackpool.

Blackpool seems to have a certain Wildwoodishness to it!

Coincidence?!....(probably!)

Lee, I had no idea Cinema in Miniature was made as late as 1992!

I started filming it late 1990 after Cinema of our Time Steve and seem to remember Miniature hit the shelves at 92 start. Even I'm confused now! [Smile]

I would have guessed late 1970s, maybe 1980s, but then again there is a timeless quality to what we do so it's easy to be deceived!

-The difference between my own film activity between the late 1970s and today is the equipment and films became much better and my left knee hurts!

I'd love to see the outtakes. Do you plan on posting them anywhere?

Steve Having now at long last commissioned the HD transfer project of my own home movies I do intend to set up a cross section for viewing. I was hoping to do this some time ago but my small media business keeps me very busy, the project is now underway so yes some films will eventually be available for viewing. [Cool]

I look forward to it!

Well, it's a soggy, gusty, temperamental day out here in Eastern Long Island

 -

It was hard to hold the phone still in the gusts, and I had to crop out my umbrella!

There's a hurricane off the coast. It may or may not be here on Sunday.

It makes me think! I'm thinking about the ice I have in my freezer and the tree I wanted to cut down last summer, yet never got around to. ("JUNE! , I'll do it in June!...OK, well then JULY!...").

There's a ritual at times like these. You need to buy milk! Your roof may wind up a block away, but at least you'll have milk!

-and Batteries!

If you'll excuse me now, I think I'll go to the gas station and top off my tank. The last time one of these hit it took a week before it was easy to buy gas again.

Here's our local theater.

-It's maybe 5 years old. Unlike the one they bulldozed to make a new home-improvement center, It's never seen even an inch of 35mm film.

 -

We went to see The Martian tonight. It's a great movie: Kind of Castaway plus Apollo 13 minus Tom Hanks plus just a dash of 2001, a Space Odyssey.

I already want the silver disk, but I'll have to admit it can't be the same other than on the big screen. So if you are a space-movie junkie like me, now is the time!

-according to the trailers, Ron Howard is doing Moby Dick. (It's going to be a lot louder than I remember the book being!)

Graham, canoeing is wonderful because it is small and simple and peaceful. It gives a lot without asking a lot. (That's pretty rare these days!)

PS: There is storm news. We'll save that for tomorrow night.

Looks very well lit up at night.

Went to Dudley also called at the old Hippodrome Theatre where so many great stars had appeared in years past. Knowing the popular link with Star Wars and Derann you could not have predicted a storm trooper walked past the front of the building as I was taking this picture! This is a genuine picture by the way we were amazed.

Lee?

the next time you are there please drop by 99 High Street and make that your today in pictures? Internet scuttlebutt suggests they are redeveloping the site, but how much can I see from over here?

(They should at least put a historic marker there...but you know...)

Given the synthetic projection at the Regal I was pretty sure all that lighting would be LED, but sure enough: it's real Neon! (Kudos!)

Well, today was supposed to be THE day, but like most of our big storms Hurricane Joaquin veered well to the East and will not only miss us, but all of New England and the Canadian Maritimes as well. Today dawned kind of nasty looking but became one those great, sunny October days that makes this about my favorite time of year.

-not without incident, though.

 -

When I got home on Friday I found a pretty substantial limb had broken off and fallen on the garage roof. When it tumbled off:

 -

Fortunately this was not the tree I wanted to cut down last summer. I may need a new gutter on my garage, but at least my conscience isn't damaged!

Could have been worse: could have been a bigger branch or the whole tree! The shingles and sub-roof are untouched, and it missed our camper by literally inches!

I'll get some firewood out of it!

-and at least we have milk!

A Wonderful emporium you have there.

Many pieces of technical works of art are restored to their former glory here via Bills magical hands!

Smashing to see the shop Bill and may I say what a smashing job you did on a couple of my projectors with thanks.

Steve re 99 High St. Did film all round it a bit ago to archive a record and will be working nearby in a few weeks time so will pay another call. Bit sad looking at the building which holds lots of memories great for us.

A snap from this years photo archive. After riding 2 wheels for nearly 40 years all over the country on a 2-stroke Vespa I hung up my white wall tyres, but I will say the UK scooter scene is still vibrant and a good way to stay young at least in mind even if the old body is giving in a bit. Made hundreds of friends over the years and some wonderful rides out and about...

A picture of the old Vespa leaving home.

If that had been me buying it I would have ridden it home never mind the van. [Frown]

Oh no Paul not another. After mine went I loosened the nut and fed some glue onto the shaft of all my 800 range machines just in case. Closed the job by only just finger tightening the secure nut.

Bill's shop is nice. -plenty of working surface and the best light in the world to work under: daylight. It's always nicer to work in a room with a big window than down in a basement or some interior room.

-and the picture is much better because it wasn't tidied up first! (Gives it character!)

I'm kind of happy there isn't anything worthy of a picture here today.

It's possible for life to be a little TOO interesting some times!

(Let's see about what we can do with next weekend!)

After fixing the sprocket on the Eumig 824D, I decided to take a look at some 50 year old Stamdard 8mm movies from my youth in Wales. Boy, that sure brought the memories back! Left me feeling quite nostalgic for Wales and old friends.
Anyway, I projected through my Ektar F1.0 prime lens, and the old Kodachrome 2 looks wonderful, not faded a bit and still as sharp as a tack. I also had some shots taken with Geavart Color film, and that has all turned pink, but still viewable.
All the films were nicely edited and spliced on 400ft reels in labelled cans. So much better than the video archiving that I do these days, and that I very much doubt will be available for my heirs to view, whereas my Kodachromes will be there for another 100 years or more along with my Bolex 18-5 projector.
