I'm on my second TiVo, first one was a standard 30 hour Series 1, and then I upgraded to a Sony DirecTiVo when they came out. I can't imagine watching TV without one. I've got both tuners plugged in, so I can record two shows at once, while watching something else that's already on the TiVo. I haven't upgraded the drive space in mine yet, but I did put an ethernet card in, since the only reason I was keeping my phone line was to let the TiVo call home. Now the TiVo phones home over my DSL connection, and I'm happy as a clam.

Microphones in frame

Hi!!!

We have a local cinema, mainly used by the film club of Jerez (200.000 souls) where they show films in the Original Version (not dubbed into Spanish).
They have a 35 mm projector and I have noticed that on many occasions microphones are visible at the top and sometimes bottom of the frame of films they show ("The Piano Teacher" - Michael Haneke and "Bend it like Beckham" recently).
I think this is due to the fact that the original framing of the film doesn't co-incide with the projected framing, but is there anyone who knows how to solve this problem, because the projector operator has no idea and says he's doing nothing wrong...
Should this be solved at the screen end by blacking off the borders or in the projector?

Thanks! Not very DV this question....

Dan.

As you have found, most films are recorded with the full frame height and width. This could be matted off on the camera or when the film is printed but that's not usually done. Nowadays there is a hard matte on the projector at the theatre to block this out.

What do you mean you can't tell on a 6th inch quicktime widescreen? I could tell it was DV as soon as I saw it.

How the Sith Stole Christmas

Came across this today, it's another animated Star Wars parody but with the Grinch twist. I found it fun to watch and can't wait for the next 2 chapters.

I would like assistance however, the music used in the Episode 2 and 3 Trailer - where is that from?

"This is Not a Love Song" - UK feature released on the Internet

The Guardian reports that the maker of the Full Monty is releasing his next feature (filmed on DV over 'a fortnight') on the Internet.

British film premieres online
http://www.guardian.co.uk/online/new...036266,00.html

"Filmmakers will take note. One of the major downfalls of the UK film industry is the difficulty of getting distribution for the movies that are produced. It means often their only outlet is to go straight to video.

But now British movie bosses are keen to see how much interest there is in watching movies on the internet as it could become a way of making them more widely screened. "

http://www.thisisnotalovesong.com/

The film premieres today but unfortunately is open only to UK visitors. However, there is a trailer which has some interesting shots.

The film is about two loners who go for a lark in the English countryside where they become involved in a murder and an ensuing chase into the barrens.

A PD150 shoot

From the website:

What digital camera was the film shot on?
The film was made using the Sony PD150, a small handheld camera, shooting on DV tape (although the PD150 can also be used iwth mini-DV tape).

The "F" word

I'm shooting my fathers 50th HS reunion and I have decided to include some standard 8mm film shots. Now that I have spent $100 on fifty year old stuff that I could have bought at a garage sale for $5 in 1980, now I have to line up film and developing.

Any thoughts? I need what they used to call double 8mm, NOT Super8. The film I need is the kind that you would run through the camera, flip the roll and shoot it again. (In reality, it was 16mm that you shoot one half at a time. After processing, it was slit down the middle and made into one long spool.)

You younger people who think of VHS as an old fashioned format, will never know the "joys" of this nonsense. Just take pity on me.

Thank goodness I'm only using a small amount of this stuff.

I still search eBay for super8/16mm cameras, despite all the money I've already spent on DV equipment. I really want to shoot on you-know-what some day, should be fun!
