What this is
This is a short clip originally made for an ongoing fashion event in Vienna. We (now former) Schule Friedl Kubelka students produced a series of shorts you currently still can see (until 29th August) on DVD in the Icon shop window at the MQ in Vienna. Topic: “fashion”…
While this week the European Parliament gloriously defeated ACTA (see discussion/articles on Slashdot, TorrentFreak and Netzpolitik 1, 2) the above clip en vogue – about a fashion victim features some more ACTA-like as well as other related acronyms:

How it was made
We shot this in Vienna back in March using a Bolex (hand-cranked) and 16mm color negative film (that I got developed/printed at Synchro Film). Since we were supposed to have a first version for school in an analog film format I then cut the rushes on a Steenbeck.
Later I got my negatives transfered (2K) and re-cut the clip digitally in Blender (using single frames, 16-bit TIFFs – Ubuntu does not seem to be eable to handle 12-bit TIFFs (!!!)) – while having a cheap transfer/telecine from that 16mm cutting copy as reference).
Grading was also done in Blender.
For exporting/encoding to .webm (VP8) Kdenlive was used.
I have another 16mm short (4 min., experimental/minimal story telling) that I plan to post at some point this Summer (pictures is done, I’m still thinking about the rest) and I’ll be posting more details from that 16mm footage/Blender workflow together with that…
