My Students // Spring 2012

I teach a class at NYU called "Electronic Cinematography." The only parameter NYU gave me when I took the gig was that I am not allowed to let my students shoot film in class. So on the last day of class, my students shot some leftover film I had in my fridge. As a tribute also to Pac Lab, who long serviced NYU students, we shot Super 16mm reversal and had Pac Lab handle the processing, prep and transfer to miniDV tape. I paid for all of it myself for the love of film. I messed up the setup of the variable speed control at the end, so what was meant to be slow motion 48 fps was actually exposed at fast motion 4.8 fps (and is blown out). Sorry about that. Still, it's a fun time. Remember these faces. Some of them are going to be very, very good in the freelance world.
