Shooting a Jib Jam on Super 16mm- Bleach Bypass S16mm

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Cinematographer Justin Lovell got out to Osler Bluff’s no Guff Snowboard Jib Jam this weekend. Shooting with our Super 16 Bolex package to capture some high speed and 45 Degree shutter angle shots of the event going down. Used Kodak 250D 7246 & Fuji 500T when the sun started to fail. Plan to have it processed with a bleach bypass at Niagara Custom Lab to give it a desaturated more snappy contrast. Doing this process will also push the film 1 stop to help with underexposure. If all goes well with the sound design and editing, it’ll be screened at the Blue Mountain Multimedia Showcase this weekend.

Stills from the transfer- Bleach bypass processing on 250D(7246) & Fuji 500T by Niagara Custom Lab, Transfered here at frame discreet. Top Sample is the 500T without 85 filter & corrected in transfer.

Here’s the video, music composition courtesy of Adam “pink socks” Barnes.

    Justin, this is awesome!

    Chad invited me so I stopped in to see the jib jam at Osler and honestly your film and editing elevate the entire scene to legendary status.

    Kudos to you and your crew.
    When can your brother get you down at the Glen.

    Thanks for the kind words. I pretty much knew what I was after before I started shooting it so I was able to shoot and edit in camera. Just had to trim out the shots that didn’t and re-arrange a few elements to help with story structure and character building. It was fun working with Adam, the composer, re-timing everything to flow with the music composition.
