Topic: 70mm film


  
  Film stock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Film stock is the term for photographic film on which films are recorded.
Film is also classified according to its width and the arrangement of its sprocket holes—a range of gauges from 8mm to 70mm or more, single-perf or double-perf configurations.
Motion picture film is known to be a highly unstable medium: improperly preserved film can deteriorate in a period of time much faster than many photographs or other visual presentations.

 Encyclopedia: 70mm film
As used in camera, the film is 65 mm wide; for projection 2.5 mm are added along each outer side of the perforations for magnetic strips holding six tracks of surround sound, although in truth, the magnetic sound system is rarely used anymore.
The advent of low-grain film stocks and availability of digital soundtrack systems for less expensive and more widely projectable 35 mm film lead to a decline in use of this expensive format in the 1990s.
There is a subset of 70 mm film known as Showscan, in which the picture is captured and shown at 60 frames per second, which can have beneficial effects on qualities like image strobe, flicker, and grain.

 One hundred Years of Film Sizes. Almost one hundred film widths and perforations were experimented with.
Whereas film equipment has undergone drastic changes in the course of a century it is a little miracle that 35mm has remained the universally accepted film size.
It was the Ikonograph, using 17,5mm film with a large center perforation.
An optimum use of the film width was obtained by expanding the image and reducing the size of the perforations on both sides.

 Oliver Stone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The film was widely criticized in the media as being a mixture of truth and fiction, which prompted Stone to publish an annotated version of the screenplay, in which he cites references for his claims.
Natural Born Killers is filmed and edited in a frenzied style where animation, grainy fl and white 8mm film, color 35mm film, and VHS are intercut and juxtaposed in a psychedelic montage of images showing not only the story's action, but also conveying the characters thoughts and feelings.
In fact, the original screenwriter of Natural Born Killers, Quentin Tarantino, was unhappy with the end result of the film because of the attention Stone gave to the aspects of the story involving the media, and asked that his name be removed from the credits.

 Panoramic 70mm film system - Patent 6242150
The 70 mm film strip has six magnetic sound tracks 51-56 with two of them lying between an edge 46, 48 of a film frame 44 and a row 60 or 62 of perforations, and with a pair of sound tracks lying between each row of perforations and an adjacent edge of the film strip.
The width of the film frame is substantially 91% of the distance M between the two rows of perforations of the film.
As a result, when the film frame 82 is projected onto a screen using the nonanamorphic (spherical) 70 mm lens on a common 70 mm projector, the projected image 90 has a width E that is 2.4 times the height F of the projected image, for an aspect ratio of 2.4 to 1.

 rec.arts.movies.tech FAQ
Films with magnetic sound also have a `balance stripe' on the perforated edge in order to keep the film thickness even, although sound is not normally recorded on it.
Film `dailies' (quickly made prints of camera negative) are often known as `work prints,' as, after they are viewed by directors and cinematographers, they are the actual prints with which film editors (assuming they actually are editing on film) `work' as they cut and splice the film together to appropriately reflect a film's story.
Films in 16mm and sometimes 35mm are cut into so-called `A and B rolls,' in a `checkerboard' fashion in order to ensure that splices will not appear on the screen when the prints are projected.

The film format was introduced into still photography as early as 1913 (the Tourist Multiple) but first became popular with the launch of the Leica camera, created by Oskar Barnack.
In normal still photography use, the film, with Kodak Standard perforations, is used horizontally, with each frame having an aspect ratio of 2:3, a size of 24 x 36 mm.
Most films today are shot and projected using the 4-perforation format, but cropping the top and bottom of the frames for a medium aspect ratio of 1.85 or 1.67.

 History of 70mm
They filmed a tracking shot in which the sense of audience participation was rather high, and projected it as a loop.
Apart from the boom year 1965, the annual output of 70mm films was approximately between one and four titles.
The power of 70mm is derived from its unparalleled quality on a big screen, so there was even less reason to produce or exhibit in 70mm, as the big screens were getting smaller and staying that way.

 Ron Fricke 70mm film maker
He immerses himself completely in every stage of production, wrestling with the broad philosophical concepts that underlie his films, designing sophisticated equipment, framing each shot as if it were a painting, editing and color timing the finished print.
Indulging his passion for 70mm, and determined to make life affirming films, Fricke proceeded to direct and co-produce "Chronos", an innovative, non verbal, IMAX film that won the Grand prix du jury Award at the first Festival International Omnimax de Paris (1987).
It develops the themes of interconnection and transcendence, which Fricke began to explore in "Chronos", ""Baraka" is a journey of rediscovery that plunges into nature, into history, into the human spirit and finally into the realm of the infinite".

Denne urolighed opfatter hjernen lynhurtigt, og publikum tolker derfor 35mm film som "film" og ikke som "virkelighed".
Da 70mm står helt stille, virker handlingen meget mere intensivt og realistisk (hvad det så end er i filmens univers).
