Iso 400 Grain and Border from Agfa APX, use and have fun, you film fakers!
film

This photographic masterpiece is a scanned 35mm negative from an Agfa APX 400 B&W negative film.

The Agfa film has beautiful grain which I find hard to duplicate using the usual Photoshop filters. So if you really must fake the grain of film, feel free to apply this.

Use: Just downsize or upsize your smooth digital pic to a width of 3437 pixels, put this on top and set blend mode accordingly – overlay gives a subtle effect, linear light a strong one. This works best for cameras that have the 2:3 format of film, sorry Olympus and P&S users.

If you group the grain layer with a "Levels…" adjustment layer in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, you can dial in the amount of grain and the lightness by moving the black and white point.

Cattails on Film
film

More cattails. This time on film. I like this better. This is from a rangefinder and I have to say that I’ve decided that I really don’t like using this type of camera. I like seeing thru the lens much better. Maybe I could get used to it. It’s great for street photography, which I don’t do much of, but honestly, I just don’t like them much.

‘In Burnt Norton’ from Eighty-Watt Cinema to Screen August 1st at Anthology Film Archives as part of the NewFilmmakers Series











New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2007

The latest short film from Eighty-Watt Cinema, ‘In Burnt Norton,’ (2006, 14 minutes, 8mm) will screen on August 1st in New York City at Anthology Film Archives as part of the NewFilmmakers series. The short film program begins at 7 p.m. and ‘Norton’ will be the third film to screen. A feature program will follow at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.. Anthology Film Archives is located at 32 2nd Avenue (and E. 2nd Street) in New York City and tickets are $ 5.

The project, written and directed by Joshua Dilworth, tells the story of Professor Stephen Marvigelo, whose journey outside the classroom blurs the line between science fiction and nonfiction. It is a film about “solving the most difficult equations in life, one plane of existence at a time,” says Dilworth. ‘In Burnt Norton’ is the third short in as many years from Dilworth and executive producer Nicholas White’s production shingle, and centers around Marvigelo’s attempts to reunite with his wife and family after a seemingly random event defies the most basic laws of nature.

A New York City Institution

The Archives were created in 1969 when Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas drew up plans to create a museum dedicated to the vision of the art of cinema as guided by the avant-garde sensibility. NewFilmmakers is the longest-running screening series in New York and one of the longest in the nation. Films such as ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Too Much Sleep’ got their start via NewFilmmakers. And in addition to being a public movie theater, Anthology is a film museum, archive, research library, and art gallery. After 35 years in existence, Anthology remains the only non-profit organization of this type in New York.

“We’re really pleased to be screening ‘In Burnt Norton,’” said producer and curator Barney Oldfield of NewFilmmakers. “Visually it’s completely unique, and overall the piece is a great example of the kind of work we strive to highlight as the among very best work that’s being done in independent film right now.”

Pioneering A New Workflow For Budget-Minded Independents

Taking advantage of an increasingly viable workflow option for independent filmmakers, Dilworth shot ‘Norton’ on Super-8mm filmstock and transferred to DVCPro HD videotape using a Thompson Grassvalley Spirit film scanner with DaVinci color correction at Technicolor in New York City. This unique process produced an arresting result.

“If you want to shoot film, this is a great way to go,” says Dilworth, who has 35mm, 16mm and 8mm films under his belt. “It’s the best of two worlds, both high and low-tech.”

At a time when shooting digitally has become much more cost-effective, originating on film is increasingly rare in the independent world. “I’m so happy that Kodak and other companies haven’t abandoned Super-8mm,” said executive producer White. “There’s a viable community of experimental filmmakers around this format, and that’s good for everyone. It makes it easier to fit a story to a budget appropriately. It’s one more tool for a community that typically doesn’t have many.”

The unique look of the film is more visibly SD than HD, but the grain structure remains true, and the remarkable latitude of newer Super-8mm stocks made shooting the format a far less nerve-racking experience for the filmmakers. Dilworth used modified widescreen cameras from Pro8mm in Burbank, California and Kodak Vision2 200T and 400T film. The final product also boasts an uncharacteristically smooth image, due to the stability of the cameras as well as the transfer gate.

About Eighty-Watt Cinema:

Eighty-Watt Cinema, LLC was founded in 2002 by Joshua Dilworth and Nicholas White. Located in New York City, Eighty-Watt Cinema has produced several dramatic and comedic shorts, and these projects have screened at film festivals and theaters nationwide.

There is no doubt when it comes to film festival is one of the hardest events to organize, in this article I will uncover my experience and some of the errors in London Kurdish Film Festival and the organizers.

London Kurdish Film Festival is running its 6th Festival this year, and their goal is to promote Kurdish artist and filmmakers, they accept films all over the world as long as you are a Kurdish director or artist. DO THEY ?

As an independent Kurdish filmmaker in my visit to North Iraq Kurdistan Region in august 2008 in an attempt to shoot my short film ‘MIX’ and to see my old Institute of art student friends which most of them are now teachers in the same institute teaching Drama, Acting & Directing also an opportunity for them to take part in the film.

After going through a hectic time to organize shooting, I was happy to come back to London and start post production procedures, and it took a few month to finish due to the amount of effects that applied to the film.

When I submitted the film to London Kurdish Film Festival in June 2009 I was surprised that I didn’t get any confirmation e-mail letter phone call et.. for the recipient !!! Few month later time were getting close to the festival and still no words from them, so I contacted them 2 weeks before the  festival starts via facebook ! because their e-mail address from their website http://www.lkff.co.uk/ were either wrong or they had a full inbox or it didn’t exists, when I was trying to send them e-mails from my 3 different e-mail addresses it kept coming back with the     ‘mail delivery failed’ message

As I contacted one of the festival committee via facebook he replied with this message:

Dear sangar
i have emailed you after the independent committee’s decision that your films has not been selected for the competition therefore for the the programme of the festival. as festival committee we have invited 7 kurdish and non-kurdish individuals to form pre selection committee to decide on the films to go in to competition. unfortunately your one has been qualified by the selection committee

I red this message for about 5 times but no chance of understanding, I showed it to couple of friends no clue, it is possible that they accepted or not or maybe both !! And I never received any e-mails from them.

So I decided to contact the guy again and he kindly apologized and confirmed that my film is NOT been accepted for the competition.

But still no explanation of the reasons why is not been accepted !

A few days later I visited London Kurdish Film Festival website and I was going through the upcoming programs of this year festival, I noticed they also have a none competition screening !!  and  there is 3 short films in this screening section which they are not taking part in the competition, and 2 of them is by a female Kurdish Director, and that Kurdish director is also a Jury within the festival !! And she have one more film which is taking part in the competition !! in the same festival ! So total of 3 films for one Director, and she is also a jury in the festival ! THAT NEVER HAPPENED IN A HISTORY OF FILM FESTIVAL this is all  been published in their website http://www.lkff.co.uk/
there is also a male Kurdish Jury in the festival who have a feature film in the festival ! does it exist to be a jury on your own film ?!

It doesn’t seem right, if one of the mission of London Kurdish Film festival is to promote Kurdish artist and Filmmakers wouldn’t be fair to replace at lest one of the 3 films with a new Kurdish Director film ? rather than promote one director with 3 films and be a jury on their own films ?! A new face or Introduce another filmmaker to take part ?

What is also worth to mention is that the same director with the 3 films this year also anticipated with a film in the previous London Kurdish Film Festival ! I think we all know that raise so many questions.

Personally I have nothing against the respected Kurdish Directors who are also a jury in the festival . My debate here is about Promoting New Kurdish films and artist, if you ask me so far the mission is not accomplished.
