Just thought you guys might like to see this.
p.s. I posted a video of a test of the 35mm adapter I have made. (it is a device so that we can utilize 35mm still camera lenses, they are (supposed!) to achieve a more filmic look, with a more shallow depth of field. In other words, you can have the subject in focus and other stuff out of focus, drawing your eye to the intended target.)
I call it the Snuff35, because the main tube is made out of 2 dip cans I scrounged from some guys at work, plus the ground glass holder I made out of the lids! Anyways check out the video. It is far from perfect, ( you can see the ground glass rotate as I focus with the 35mm,I was walking the whole time, handheld) but I hope to get it ready enough to shoot this film with it. http://www.brothersstudios.com/35mmtest.html
(ed. note!) I made an impovement to the Snuff35! I added another lens after the focusing screen ( I guess it is technically an anchromat lens) and the dark edges you see in this video are gone! That was a big deal in being able to use this in our upcoming project. It actually seems to let more light in all together. I need to do a little clean up on the lens and seal the thing so that no dust or dirt gets in on the focusing screen. Any little spec that is on there shows up because you are focusing in so closley on the screen that it looks like a boulder.
I’m dsto, and I’m out!
