Amazing work, maybe a bit less jitter next time and actors should be more theatrical in their performance and scream their lines as was the norm in the 1930s, their microphones were shoddy which is why people spoke so loud in old movies LOL

Loved the old timey dolly movements though and those classic zoom in.

Yeah, we really thought about doing that old fashioned "Continental" accent, but the director wanted more of a modern delivery once she saw what we were getting during rehearsal.

Thanks for the positive feedabck on the dolly moves.  Not a lot of folks mention that.  Kinda wish I'd gone even more aggressive with it in hindsight, but that's all part of the fun.

i like your heavy film grain treatment, translated p well on vimeo (?)

thoughts on this/how you did it?

Massive data rate file that was uploaded in 4K, so that helps.  Seems to have maintained a lot of the detail.  I uploaded an .mp4 file.

We used the Universe plugin from Red Giant for the dust and the jumpy gate weave.  "Misfire" was the effect setting.  I think maybe those film damage effects subtly popping up as things go along helps with the look.  Black dust and very subtle splotching are there, but not too obvious.  We didn't want it to look like a reel that had been on the road for months,  suffering all that accumulating spooling damage, but what you would potentially see as the first pristine print at a premiere, you know?

The 'tight' gate weave keeps the frame hopping left to right just a little also, which I think looks cool. 

BTW, the plugin is too flaky.  Can't recommend Maxtor stuff based of this particular effect.  The effect is nice and this one did the job, but it wasn't reliable.  Crashed my system a lot.

Also used FilmConvertNitrate for the B&W stock film look and underlying film grain. "IL FN P4" for those of you that have that plugin.
