New 35mm Adapter & A great looking new short film

Hi there, I'm not sure if my design is one that is readily in use. I built it many months ago. It is motorised, fairly quiet and not particularly complicated to fabricate. I recently tested it for my new short, please take a look:

Anyone who is interested in knowing more, please feel free to email me.

Many thanks, Nick

Any chance of getting a couple shots of the inner workings?
Also, what kind of lighting were you using? What is the lens?

Overall this was great piece.

Some comments (Just my opinion! so please dont take offense)

* Maybe the web compression degraded the orginal resultion, but the movie seemed to lack a lot of resolution/sharpness (was the softness due to the adaptor?).

*could be my CRT display (PC monitor, UK/) but the blacks seemed milky, perhaps its just my taste , i would personnaly like it a litter more contrasty.

Other than that, what i really liked:

no vignating/hotspot, loss of light seems minimal considering that the shot was practically in the dark!

Also was it XL1 or XL2 and what other setup deatails can you give please (lens, frame mode, etc)
