End of troubled year,so Let me does some Random Considerations..If I’m not wrong somewhere(American Cinematographer Vol. 89 Issue 5 Kink and the City By Jon Silberg) I read that “my” DANTE SPINOTTI A.S.C-A.I.C for the feature DECEPTION used older Super Speed primes lenses over modern HD digital camera(at that times Panavision Genesis ) and modern primo lenses over classic super35 film camera like ARRI or Panaflex..so I used this tips,among the many that he does in every his interview, for my gear using classic/vintage Pentax SMC A Manual Focus lenses(50mm f 1.7- 50mm f 1.4) over my digital APS-C Pentax SLR and I get , sometimes with the beauty of some difficult, OUTSTANDING results,working at 50mm full frame lenses(75mm if compared to Pentax APSC DSLR System 1,5x) ;last hardly I will pass to full frame ,not for my pocket ,my computer and skills.Check My Flickr
Then I was able to recover a 1984 RICOH XRP 35mm film camera mounting a Ricoh 50 mm lenses f 1.7 for understand what Quentin Tarantino and other great Directors are keeping alive in to cinema industry,the use of film,to be honest as just not pro in that days is quite a mess develop films and scan for obtain nice prints (prints on photographic paper/media is the where everything must go) however the organic feel is so fascinating ,and I could understand why they don’t quit it,but with my digital gears set as I mentioned before I can really deal the same great digital photographic meaning specially for see in to the darkness…
So less than any hateful Digital Intermediate speech I’m not telling that IF they had used ALEXA 65 with Vintage Ultra Panavision lenses they could achieve a better THE HATEFUL 8(Upgraded 2017: Dante Spinotti ASC AIC is Testing in Pre Prod for Marvel’s Ant man and the Wasp ALEXA 65 With Anamorphic and Sperhical Classic Lenses),because this feature under the great ROBERT RICHARDSON A.S.C. is shot at Anamorphic 65mm film format with Panaflex using tons of KW through a Classic Hollywood Lighting and is not like the REVENANT shot by the beloved EMMANUEL “CHIVO” LUBEZKI A.M.C-A.S.C (using Alexa HD cameras and classic Panavision Anamorphic C Series Lenses with ONLY available ambient-practical lighting),so these western movies are in to a great beautiful confrontation..however this is not my business,are just random thoughts for say in the media “fight” lenses could make really the difference and in this case Vintage Lenses Rules.
THAT’S A GREAT NEWS , A DREAM COMES TRUE..MICHAEL MANN WILL SET ENZO FERRARI BIOPIC AROUND MODENA AND ITALY( JUST 300km FAR FROM ME) ; SO I HOPE TO MEET HIM AGAIN TASTING PARMIGIANO LAMBRUSCO AND CRUDO (DRY CRUED HAM)
Tha Major of The City of Modena Muzzarelli Meet Michael and Chris
“The horse was painted on the fuselage of the fighter plane of Francesco Baracca — a heroic airman of the first world war. In ’23, I met count Enrico Baracca, the hero’s father, and then his mother, countess Paulina, who said to me one day, ‘Ferrari, put my son’s prancing horse on your cars. It will bring you good luck’. The horse was, and still is, black, and I added the canary yellow background which is the colour of Modena.”
According The Automobile Club d’Italia (usually known by its acronym ACI) There are 37Millions of automobiles registered and circulating in Italy.
One is my new Opel Astra Coupé Bertone / (for UK Vauhxall Astra Coupé Bertone ) my second car like this after 12 years
This Great Car comes from a Venice Car Dealer as surplus,it was registered on 2006 , due some business difficulty the dealer closed and sell this zero kilometers(84 Km when I check the Car) to another dealer close to Modena and Reggio nell’Emilia at the end of 2014 . I was lucky to meet this offer on internet and after a short negotiation with the new dealer I change my older Ural Mountain Green Astra Coupè with this one (Same Engine Z18XE Euro 4 but last production of the Torino factory, 16″ wheels,Texas Black Seats)Light Grey Mirage new for less than 1/4 of the listed 2005 car’s price
This car is Special for me ,the History of BERTONE coachbuilder is special,so this change was less upsetting of what I thought ,who love cars and keep care of cars can understand
IN MICHAEL MANN’S FILMS THERE ARE SOME LIKENESS IN THE MISE-EN-SCÈNE THAT I HAVE NOTICED WITH AGES , SO THIS VIDEO IS A SHORT RECAP ; I’M SURE I’M FORGETTING SOMETHING AND I DELIBERATELY OMITTED THE PROCEDURE IN THE USE OF A 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN(12 CALIBER) FOR BROKEN A DOOR LIKE WE CAN SEE ON HEAT& PUBLIC ENEMIES BUT I ENJOYED A LOT IN THE MAKING OF THIS EDITING , I HOPE COULD BE THE SAME FOR ALL OF YOU , HAVE A GOOD VISION AND ENJOY IF YOU CAN.
