Updated my site with a new video - I finished building a mock set of rails today so it works on the tripod.

Getting a little colour separation on certain shots Long shots, working on figuring that out. Sturdiness is also a problem rack focusing, which is also something that I need to address - some vibrations when holding the focus ring. If anyone has a quick fix, let me know.

Now, I am starting to write a short so I can shoot it!

Mandy, that is amazing

Really good for home-made stuff - wow, that is great! Hotspot issue isn't bad at all - if you light well, your film will be ultra cool...

Can't wait to hear more/see more about it!

Congrats!

The press & seal is now showing its faults. In the compressed footage a little hard to see, but the uncompressed it really shows. Going back to the Frost GG until I can get the Transparent Foil from Filip!

New footage showing a daylight scene.

Bought some Mylar today for the CD/GG. Wow, what a difference in quality - but at the cost of losing light levels (will posts some pics in a few minutes). There is a great grain-like look to it and I cannot really see much of a spinning CD's with it (something that is obvious with Frosted GG/CD's). The hotspots is virtually gone as well because of the opaqueness of the material. I am going to try some more tests and see if it is a trade-off I can live with.

I am also looking for supplies of blank WHITE CD's. I only can find the GREEN TINT ones in stores. Does anyone know a company that sells them? maybe even just sells the plain packing cd's?
