I must also quote the speech of JFK ( youtube.com/watch?v=6z1DidldxUo )

I bought a new s16mm camera and of course the first thing to do was a camera test. Instead of doing the usual "camera test" type of thing, I tried to do this one a little different and document some of life. I love shooting with this little camera and I was very pleased with the results. What you see here is a best light with strait cuts- I haven't made any adjustments outside telecine.
Many friends wanted to see footage from this test so I put together a little presentation of sorts and named it "600 feet".
I hope you enjoy this little bit of film!
