Re: Super 8 camera

History is History. As long as we have still got people alive who worked with this media the subject will always be talked about. Remember cine film will be talked about for many years, as we have one vital cine film in the world and many generations after us will say "WHAT WAS THAT MEDIA"?. The cin...

Re: Super 8 camera

Cine may be dead to the younger generation, but us young at heart old timers we still treasure those memories of our productions hitting a white screen.

Re: Super 8 camera

I think what was rubbish the event what started all this present computer set up and that is or was VHS format. Many television programmes still rely on cine material from the 60s instead what was recorded on VHS. Yes, I have moved on but boy it has cost money just to keep up. So that I can work eff...

Re: Super 8 camera

Re: Super 8 camera

I bet it was a EUMIG Projector???????.
In those days if the film got chewed up I use to hold it near a switched on bulp on a lamp and the greases use to come out. I did that later with editing 35mm film.

Re: Super 8 camera

Some day a person will go into the attic and dig out all the cine film and come up with these words, "WHO IS THIS"?

Re: Super 8 camera

I think as long as we still have people on this planet who used cine film, we will have a minority of interesting people who will dabble in this art form. In its heyday to many amateur made films and some were diabolical. The biggest draw back was location sound shooting. Even the dubbing was very b...

End of Year

The Christmas Season is slowly on our doorstep. For business its catch up time. For religion its a platform to spread the word. For video people its, "Do we video the event"? Also many look back regards the year we had. Normally we will find more bad points than good. But one carol song will alter a...

Re: What is New?

Lee's comment said it very nicely. If you open your kitchen cupboard there are well established brands of goods. IAC and Video Clubs are in that category, but the volume of people supporting these brands are down. IAC float on the internet and support clubs. I don't know if the support Colleges or M...

Re: CLUB PROMOTION

Now that I have settled in at the new video club and I can see why some clubs are loosing members or not getting any. I wont go into details, but it all revolves around members working as a unit.When you have members telling you in a nice way they don't like doing this or that for a production shoot...

Re: What is New?

Thank You Dave. Yes FCP-X is a much better editing software now than at the beginning. Beats working in FCP-7. I think most people in forums are more on the problem issue of computer or software help. I think the IAC logo and word institute could now display the wrong message this day and age of tec...
