Oldschooler replied to Ron Cole's discussion Sinbad The 5th Voyage - In Theaters February 7th!
"Crap! There's no way my car can make it. Gonna have to see it another way, dammit... I'm really sore about not being able to make it. Like Butthead said, " This sucks more than anything has ever sucked before!" I guess I'll…"

Oldschooler replied to Sylther's discussion Resizing and cropping
"Also consider that if you are cropping in on an image, it effectively changes the crop factor on your lens, I guess that's obvious, and the point, even. APS-sized sensors are usually 1.5 or 1.6 crop factors from a normal lens already, so say a…"

Oldschooler replied to Ron Cole's discussion Sinbad The 5th Voyage - In Theaters February 7th!
"Wonderful! Thanks Ron, now I know, and I'm gonna do my damnedest to make it! It's a 4 or 5 hour drive, each way for me, in an unreliable car... ADVENTURE!!!"

Oldschooler replied to Steve Boot's discussion "Goutte d'or" film online
"OOOOoooooh-la-LA !!! Saah-Wheat! Still like Fred better, but what an amazing production! Absolutely beautiful, and how the film looks...incomprehensible. INCOMPREHENSIBLE. But that's a beautiful woman for you... AAARrrrgh…"

Oldschooler replied to Ron Cole's discussion Sinbad The 5th Voyage - In Theaters February 7th!
"Showtimes, Ron? Specifically, Atlanta? Any ideas how to find out when and where? I tried searching, couldn't turn it up. I have a friend in ATL that I could stay with, and drag to the theatre with me. I hope theatres pack out, if it does well…"

Oldschooler replied to Jackson's discussion Casting Collapse Problem!
"  It has been many years since I ran any foam. I'm no expert, maybe someone who does this more often will give better suggestions. I have had issues with much, much higher humidity than 50%, more like 90%! I had to run the A/C [ it was…"

Oldschooler replied to Sylther's discussion Which Canon EOS?
"Canons are good about not overheating, Nikons on the other hand...unless they have worked it out in the last few years, but I wouldn't risk finding out the hard way. I guess it depends on how much you would like to spend on a Canon, you…"

Oldschooler commented on Stanley Milton Strawn's blog post Sinbad theatrical release!
"Atlanta is a ways off from me, but I'm SERIOUSLY thinking of making the drive, in my junk car. Hey, it's the BOYS! Can't miss Ron's work in the THEATRE! And let's see, Mark Sullivan, Peter Montgomery, and Paul, and Nick too?…"

Oldschooler replied to John Horabin's discussion Fred for the short oscar?
"Oscar was the first thing I thought the first time I saw it. Disappointing, but not surprising, give it to someone less deserving instead. Maybe it will go to a super-talented supercomputer/ human hybrid abomination. And then…"

Tanuki Raccoon Puppet

"I know that Nick sometimes uses a flocking gun, I don't know if that would work on silicone, he will probably chime in on that. On puppet heads, I have used latex as 'glue' to attach overlapping rows of fur, starting at…"

Tanuki Raccoon Puppet

"Woof-woof! Bow-wow! Or in Japanese, I think it's "Wow-wung"! Very nice sculpt, and I'm wondering the same as Nick, is it going to have added fur, remain smooth-skinned, or perhaps have sculpted fur?"

Oldschooler replied to deschaud gilles's discussion Rays light
"I believe that they are talking about a beam splitter, deschaud. The glass is directly in front of the camera's lens, at a 45 degree angle to the lens, the camera sees through the glass to the set/puppet, and also sees the refection in the…"

"Very nice ! But shouldn't Jay have a BEAK ???? I mean, realistically, he does have a FOWL mouth... Hey, couldn't resist."

Oldschooler replied to mattosaurus's discussion Digital Super 8
"heh-heh! I just saw this tonight too, linked from No Film School! The fact that it is 720p in h264 is a big time deal breaker for me, but hopefully this kind of thinking will continue to develop and give new life to old Super 8mm cameras. I remember…"
