In homage to the 1960s-1980s travelogue films of Harold Baim I decided to make a film about my own home town; the North London suburb of Enfield. To get the right look, I chose to shoot on real film. This was all shot on 5 cartridges of Kodak Ektachrome 100D super8 film over an extended period between between autumn 2011 and winter 2013.
It's a great shame that Kodak announced the demise of this colour reversal film stock in December 2012.
Tech Notes: The footage was shot on my Nizo 156XL camera using the Panasonic LA7200 16x9 anamorphic lens adaptor. The film was processed at Andec Filmtechnik then sent to 18-frames.com for HD film to data transfer. Edited in Adobe Premiere.
