I have been running variable area tracks on 7378 through the reversal

VA tracks don't mush up as fast as VD in direct positive.

A short film that I shot mostly on 7366 which was processed in reversal
by A-1 can be seen this week at http://www.countgore.com/NewBlood.htm. Note
that the transfer was done by pointing a video camera at the flatbed
and you're listening to the optical track, so don't expect the best
possible quality....


Scott,

You shot a flame on extremely slow ortho finegrain master positive stock
which you had reversal processed?????

I'm impressed, but how and why?

Flames are hard enough to shoot and make look good with the faster
stocks intended for camera.

Estar base 3366 might be OK for projection, but the acetate base 7366
stock tends to warp and/or cup under the heat of the projection lamp.

A few years ago, the base in 7302 and 7366 were slightly different in
chemistry and only the print stock resisted heat warp. I assume, but am
not sure, if this is still the case.

Earl.


Speaking of flames, I'd like the light in my equipment to be powered by
an anthracite-fueled fire.

And maybe -- or maybe not -- some fire fueled by bituminous coal.

Forget the reversal or the positive. I prefer to use the original
negative film.

Russian spy on phone: Hello, Uncle Joe? Yeah... They got a base in Cuba, they got a
base in Japan... now they got a base in Turkey. Just wanted you to know. Thanks!

Lou Costello: I heard you talking about bases, and I just wanted to ask what...

Russian spy: What's on second...
