Re: The Comedy Thread

Hi Alls, There's definitely something in this advertising slogan "He Should Have Gone to Specsavers"! Lee...... :lol: I Forgot my Glasses Yesterday my daughter asked why I didn't do something useful with my time. She suggested I go down to the senior centre and hang out with the guys. I did this and...

Re: The Comedy Thread

:lol: Apologies in advance ... Lee. A mate of mine recently admitted to being addicted to brake fluid. When I quizzed him on it he reckoned he could stop any time..... I had a mate who was suicidal. He was really depressed, so I pushed him in front of a train. He was chuffed to bits. I went to the c...

Re: The Comedy Thread

:lol: Ohhh Dear...... Mostly for over 16s! My neighbour knocked on my door at 2:30am this morning, can you believe that, 2:30am? Luckily for him I was still up playing my Bagpipes. Sorry Dave The Grim Reaper came for me last night, and I beat him off with a vacuum cleaner. Talk about Dyson with deat...

THE (HISTORIC) ART OF FILM + COMPS. FESTIVALS &C

8) Hi Alls, I have just had a think (or was it a thunk!)? It seems to me these days that quite a number of folks are having their "ancient" Std.8mm and S8mm. 16mm. cine films transferred to Digital formats! So..... my thoughts have turned to these 'cos I (very) quite successfully transferred a movie...

8) Hi Alls - Anybody knowledgeable: Microphones: Re "add on" Mics. to camcorders including boom use. We know it's important to use an add on microphone for serious video shooting.

Re: CASABLANCA and also TAPE DROP OUTS

:lol: Well yes, that should be the name of the game - making films. Frankly, there are at my club three guys or so who from time to time give a presentation of this software and that software. Just sitting there watching that projected moggy arrow whizzing about just sends me up the wall! Half the t...

Re: CASABLANCA and also TAPE DROP OUTS

HI Chris... and Willy, Well, although Chris' somewhat in depth comments are no doubt true all it does for me is to confirm my hypothesis that 50 plus - forget it! There's far more things worthwhile to making / producing video / films than messing about with often confusing technicalities. Also, even...

Re: CASABLANCA and also TAPE DROP OUTS

:lol: Hi Willy and interested parties: As I stated I contacted the Casablanca gentleman, even it being Sunday and there follows below his reply, which of course rings very true. I always think it's better to stay with what one comprehensively knows if one is 50 or over rather than start in on unnece...

Re: CASABLANCA and also TAPE DROP OUTS

8) Hi Willy (and other interested parties). Casablanca: I'm sorry if I have added to your confusions and interests. I have FWD'd two paragraphs from your posting to the Casablanca guy here whom I know reasonably well, (no names etc.) for his comments. Of course it might be considered that he'll be b...

CASABLANCA and also TAPE DROP OUTS

:P Hi Illustrious Fellows! I've just been roaming through the tech sect of the Forum! OK this goes back to Willy V D L's postings in December last re Casablanca, and also drop outs on tape etc. I bought my first Casablanca machine when these first appeared on the market, (analogue), after a public d...

Re: 8MM CINE FILM COPYING TO VIDEO

:D Hi Tom, Thanks for your info. Kind of you. I'll get sorting out my ancient footage, (or should it be meterage now)?. I just hope that Michael is incorrect and that you do not now receive "massarges" from "Olga from the Volga", or "Nadia from Vi-aigra" - or worse - from 10 Downing St. Lee....... :...
