Yes, I can see the flickering. I saw it before on the bike too, but I’m afraid that’s where our agreement ends. I actively try to avoid the damn flickering, I think it’s distracting. You were right about it being a product of shutter and the transfer (but mostly shutter I think). The Krasnogorsk-3 isn’t exactly a top of the line camera, but it does the job. Same for the transfer house I send it to. If money was no object, I’d get it scanned in 4K and downsize to 2K at Cinelicious. Of course that’s prohibitively expensive for me, but it doesn’t hurt to drool every now and then. Some of that is Super 8mm, but most is 16mm. Looks cinematic as hell, with no flicker as far as I could tell.
It’s one of the things that makes film look like film when you simulate it.
I think what you mean are home 8mm/16mm projections, where this would probably be very visible. I can’t speak from experience because I’ve never seen one in action. What I can say is that you’d never see this on a proper projection of 35mm film. As far as the D90 goes, I won’t argue since you’ve obviously thought a long time about it, and it’s been about 1 1/2 years since I played with it last. But I still think it’s odd that compression would ever make anything look better.
Anyway, back to your filmmaking, hurry up and make an atmospheric Horror Film like Eraser Head, or a directorial masterpiece like Night on Earth. Oh, and stop trying to kill your sister on the hammock you evil bazzard (yes, I spotted the other video) :-D
I know sisters can be a pain in the arse, but If you kill her, you’ll have less actors to film, peasant!
You’ll be glad to know I’m planning a crime thriller for next summer. It will be black and white, with lots of influence from film-noir. It will be tricky to pull off with such a small crew (2-4 people), but I’m super excited. The main thing I haven’t decided is if I should go for a feature-length (80-90 minutes), or not tire myself out and keep it to 15 minutes max. Anything in between is an awkward length, and unlikely to be accepted to film festivals.
Wait, you actually thought that was me in the video? Haha, that’s my younger brother. Even he wasn’t trying to kill her, I just directed him to. Oh, I guess that doesn’t help my case either.
