Help me get to film festivals

Hey guys, I started a Gofundme.com page.  I’m about to go to Wales for a film festival and I’d appreciate any help you can give me to cover expenses, and help me get to further festivals in the future.  If you can donate anything, I’d be grateful.  The only reward I can give is to continue to post updates from my travels, as I’ve done so far.  Please click here to help me out.

Overwhelming Majority is an experimental documentary short dealing with issues of loneliness, alienation, and social anxiety. A young woman recounts a suicide attempt, muses on the nature of connectedness, and ultimately yearns for understanding.

Ferrania P30 to be released this month!

What else can I say about this?  Except that it’s amazing.

And also I’m glad that while color reversal is still on the way, that I’ll be able to shoot Ferrania film by the end of February.  It’ll be in its alpha release and if you’re a Kickstarter backer, check your email already.  And if not, it should be selling in Ferrania’s online store in 2 weeks.  What a great time to be alive.

edit: well, that deadline got pushed back, didn’t it?

Ektachrome returns!

Because there is a God.  Having kept up with Facebook communities, I know how much demand there was for this, so I’m happy that it’s finally happening.  Kodak Ektachrome will be coming back to motion picture and still photography.  I’m so happy I’ll be able to shoot this film in a year or so.  Read the official press announcement here:

I remember hearing an interview with Jeff Clarke where he said that Kodak wanted to bring back Ektachrome, but had to choose between that and the new super 8 camera, as to which one first.  Well, it seems that we didn’t have long to wait after all.  A year from now, we’ll be shooting brand new Kodak Ektachrome.

Long live film.

Super is better than perfect

Great tagline, makes me swell with pride, so good going, Kodak.  It’s time to be done with digital perfection.  Here’s some new footage from the new prototype super 8 camera, right from Kodak’s new Youtube channel:

Merry Christmas to me.  Except for the part where it isn’t out yet, because its release has been pushed back to Spring 2017…the wait is interminable.  But so much for not posting in December, I found time after all!  And speaking of Christmas presents, if you haven’t been keeping up with the progress Ferrania is making, check out the brand new image from their first coating test:

There is a future, faith manages.  Merry Christmas.

NAC customer example gallery

Back in the Spring 2013 I had my album manufactured by the National Audio Company out of Missouri.  They were supposed to be working on a customer example gallery, so I sent in a few promo shots…three years later the gallery is finally up and can be viewed here.  I’m happy to see Lacrimosa among them.

I seem to be one of the only ones not using the standard white background.  I can’t decide if that’s good because it will help pull people’s eyes toward it, or bad because it now seems less professional.  Hmmm…

I posted this picture before, way back when.  But this one is new:
