Sometimes you have the tool but you don’t know what job it’s for.  In this video I come up with 7 ways you could use 16mm.   Do you have any other ideas?  I would love to hear them.

Why – The Contrarian in Me   2 comments

Why 16mm – Why now, sometimes I ask myself.  Because,

  • it is not digital
  • analog film will probably not be with us for that much longer
  • it looks cool

Mostly because the minute that something is being abandoned by everyone, I all of a sudden get interested.

What do you think?

What and Why   Leave a comment

I got interested in 16mm film after doing lots of digital videography and then wanting to experiment with a film look.  Well what better way of getting a film look than doing it with real film.  I have some experience with black and white photography and dark room work.  At first came 8mm, but when I found it hard to get good digital captures of 8mm I found the answer to be 16 mm.   The cameras are not expensive and they seem much more robust and industrial compared to finicky, consumer grade super 8 cameras that were not made to work after 10 years.   In this blog I plan to further explore 16mm and pass on what little I have learned for other folks interested.  I am a confessed cheap skate so expect to find here inexpensive ways to play with analog film.
