Film One Projects

Well, this is awesome. I shot my first roll of film EVER, an entire hundred feet of Black and White Reversal Film. Reversal film is different than conventional film in that when you shoot with it, the film is processed to be a positive image, as opposed to other films which produce a negative, from which a workprint is made. In other words, when you send film to the lab, the film you get back is the same film as the film that when through the camera when you shot it. You actually cut it up by hand to edit it!

Anyway, the first assignment was an in-camera edit, meaning that we had to story board and shot our film to obtain proper exposures, and learn how to use the Bolex camera. So I enlisted my friend Joe Collesano to help me film at Logan Airport, and this is what came out:

I'll be posting my second exercise (Editing for continuity) where I actually have spliced film on the Steenbeck Flatbed!
