We shot this film in 2005 with a 16mm Eclair NPR camera that I'd bought to finally get that elusive "film look" that was impossible to achieve with mini dv at the time. The Eclair was SGD$5000 and 10 mins of film stock cost about SGD$1500 to develop and telecine. But we managed to squeeze out a short film from it anyway - though I was nervous about getting enough footage. In the end we were pretty happy with the results - there's something incredible about film grain and texture that is still unbeatable but digital is so close nowadays that it would be ridiculous to pay for film on these sorts of shorts.
