This is my first official go at transferring negative film stock. Main issue is the Radio Shack LED we had to throw in to get our telecine back up and running... You'll notice the left portion of the frame is blown out, which actually means it's vignetted before I inverted it. I inverted and graded in Color. Definitely a start but not happy with it in the least!
NOTE: THIS VIDEO LOOKS MUCH MUCH BETTER WITHOUT VIMEO'S COMPRESSION!!!
This was a project really... I just wanted to see if I could make it happen. Doubt I ever do it again! I processed the B&W in my bathroom in a large bowl in the tub. Hung it all over the living room to dry... then scanned each frame with a flatbed! Geez. It was fun... but I got it out of my system!
A buddy of mine gave me a call and said he had access to a pile of 100' daylight loads of old Ektachrome VNF-1 16mm. It's old... and it shows. I really like the look. Going to open up another stop to compensate for the overly grainy shadows. Other than that this film is perfect for a project I'm shooting for a local company.
