I like that Izzy & Moe, owning it as well. Not a belly laugh comedy, but the last time Jackie Gleason and Art carney appeared on the screen together and just about the last time Gleason himself was on the big screen. It was made as a TV movie, but it was felt that it was worthy of the big screen as well. I agree. A light-hearted film.

Tonight?

Mission Galactica: Cylon Attack (2X400ft)

Close Encounter of the Third Kind. (1977 version) Scope feature.

You asked a few weeks ago if I have screened The Golden Seal. The answer is not yet. I think you were asking how the color had held up. Upon print inspection, I'd say it is.......well.....golden [Big Grin]

Anyways.......

Since last night one of our neighbors created enough drama to fill her own episode of cops I thought I needed a healthy dose of escapism....So I went through a number of films throughout the day..

on SUPER 8 - Clown Prince of Hollywood a paul Killiam special with some cool rare clips from a Billy West film Playmates and the first Lonesome Luke with Harold Lloyd. An episode of Hazards of Helen from 1914 (09) Leap from the Water Tower. Also Cowboy Sheik from 1924 with Will Rogers, and a beet red Cisco Kid TV episode season one, episode one entitled Boomerang.It is a shame because it was in good shape..

then on 16mm I did a test run through of my Kodak Pageant since I rarely use it of Pearl White's Terror prior to my screening on Thursday..This is my only real 16mm projector that runs at silent speed, unless someone can give me the dimensions of the proper pulley's for an elmo 16-CL..I did use the elmo tonight for a short Laurel and Hardy You're Darn Tootin' and my newest acquisition, a dupe of one of my favorite movies ever, Creature from the Black Lagoon It looked great for a dupe, and I got to hear Nestor Paiva (the ship's captain) utter my forum signature line, "You are too Far Out Miss Lawrence!"

I wish that I was able to achieve acceptable results
with screen captures with film. It is always less than
on the screen.

Everyone posts outstanding images, how is it done?

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

Michael,

Do it everything manually. Any auto features in your camera must be disabled.

Let's see. The auto focus does actually work based on the amount of the light. On our screening, the amount of light is changing time by time depend on the scene.

So you have to measure exactly the distance between your camera and screen with light on. Put one target on your screen (e.g. place a magazine) and set the camera to get the sharpest picture possible.

So, trick no. 1 it is better to capture the show during the bright scene

Camera also is confused capturing the image if the image is moving. Now, most of our movie is moving picture.

So, trick no. 2 is to capture the most stable (static) picture. Usually when the actors are talking.

Auto camera is also automatically set to get indoor or outdoor scene. While during projecting we are using halogen bulb (incandescent) or warm light. The camera understands that it is indoor. So the camera is going to put more red to compensate the indoor light. It will make our capture to be reddish than the actual screen.

So, trick no. 3 set the camera into outdoor.

Trick no. 4 is to capture as many as you can (it doesn't cost you anything with a digital camera) and choose the best captures.

cheers and have a try!

Monday November 16 2009

Cartoon shorts:
Legend of Rockabye Point
Crazy Mixed Up Pup
Jasper & the Watermelon Patch

Super 8 Scope Feature *
Grease

* Tonight it was simply awesome. I believe as a personal choice, this movie is my all time favorite. It's a great story - wonderful music and lyrics - and was such a big hit in it's release in 1978.

But for me, it takes a strong hold in my movie hobby. This motion picture was the first one I ran on a busy Friday night as a solo projectionist in the sold out theater. And just a few years later, it was the first feature I ever bought on super 8. I had for many years one of the Marketing full length copies. And just about 8 years ago (approximate guess) I purchased the scope version from Derann. The scope copy from what I recall is based on the 1998 re-release 20th anniversary.

Anyone who loves this movie and can run scope at home on super 8 deserves to have a copy of this fine production.

Thank you for listening [Smile]

Chip,
I agree with you about Grease. In my opinion, it's the best musical ever made.
But I only have the flat marketing international full feature. Perhaps I will get the scope-feature sometime...
How was your first solo-show with Grease in the theater ???

Yesterday I screened the first part of my Star Wars (Episode IV). The Derann scope-print is absolutely stunning.
Here are some pictures. If I screen the second part, I will post some more pictures of it [Big Grin]

Elmo ST-1200, Rathenower Rectimascope 48/2x

Michael

Nice screen captures there Micheal.

Derann did an outstanding job on they're STAR WARS print. The colors on mine, (and on yours as well), don't look dated or have that "70's color", as I call it.

Tonight ...

first 30 minutes of "Sith" scope ...

(currently my favorite digest!)

and the feature?

ALIEN stereo/scope!

Bit late but I've been busy.

Thursday, November 19th:

Call Of The Wild (1972/Super 8mm 6x400')

Just received from Dan Lail the other day. A very nice print with no marks or splices. Color is a little faded and a little red during indoor scenes but is otherwise good. Focus was a little soft but overall I was very pleased with it.

Friday, November 20th:

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen (Digital video projection/Blu-Ray)

Disney's Beauty & The Beast (Digital video projection/DVD)

I agree Stewart, "Outland" is a far better sci-fi than it is given credit! Back when they did things called "photonovels" (which were whole movies, scene by scene, photo still by photo still with dialogue!), they did two Large paperback versions in full glorious color. One was "Alien", the other? "Outland".

They are well worth checking out, as (especially in the case "Alien"), as sometimes the gory action happens so fast, whgile the cuts in the film happen fast, they have the exact goriest frame for you to see all the detail!

As for ther Osgood house tonight?

It's Classic Comedy night!

Jack Benny "Taxi tangle"
Three Stooges "Disorder in the Court"

and the feature?

"When's Your Birthday?" Joe E. Brown (read review in review section) And it weven fulfills my requirement for animation, as the first five minutes is an animated sequence, which is historic, in that it is the first time a certain director first directed ... Bob Clammpett! (classic Warner Bros. animator, as well as the creator of "Beany and Cecil" for TV!) Rare Super 8 release, as well as rare in any form, but out on Super 8!

A Black and White Night!

I´m a little bit to late.
Not last night, but last Saturday night: Toy Story (Super 8), fantastic print, very sharp focus good like a 16mm print and not far away from a 35mm print (if you don´t use the best lens).
