A small town is invaded by aliens, in the shape of circus clowns with over-sized heads, from outer space. They are capturing and killing the townspeople with cartoon-like ray & popcorn guns, vehicles, balloons,and more. They store the bodies in cotton candy cocoons on their ship, which is disguised as a circus tent.
In this interview, Kimberly Kane discusses her love for film photography, work in Transfer 8mm Film to DVD Fort Lauderdale, and her experiences in the music industry and the fashion world.
There are two factors currently raising the price of Super 8 cameras. The first one is obvious: Price-and-Demand. The most incredible and unexpected factor, however, is Hollywood’s renewed interest in this format. Big name producers, like Oliver Stone are using high-tech super 8mm cameras in full feature films. Music video producers have found a new artsy look and feel in this format as well.
There are two things to look for: 1) the camera is focusing on the wrong thing, and 2) the camera is confused and is hunting back and forth for something to focus on. Most camcorders today look for a sharp vertical edge in your picture. Once found, they very quickly focus in and out picking which direction better sharpens this edge in the picture. It’s the same process the eye doctor uses: “Which is better, A or B”?
If the film transfer lab offers to add background music at no charge, do it . If you decide you don’t like the music, you can always mute it. Though chances are that the lab will use time-tested music choices and you will enjoy watching your old silent films with a emotion-evoking background music.
Simply put, a movie is a series of shots spliced together in the right sequence. The editor must be able to separate each shot into segments, and piece it back together in the right sequence, while eliminating undesirable scenes. Most editors come with an on board cutter/splicer. You cut the film (usually in the middle of a frame), scrape off the emulsion; apply your cement, and splice.
Contrary to this being a silly spoof of horror, some scenes are truly scary to me. Watching large, colorful clowns walking around without talking is very creepy to me! There is also something about the people hanging in cotton candy cocoons that I find rather chilling — it kind of reminds me of the original version of The Fly in the end where the fly with a human head is caught in a spider web screaming. One popular and disturbing scene is when the one clown is making shadow puppets on the wall to distract the people walking by and the shadow turns into a T-Rex head that chomps down on their heads.
