    New compositing tutorial for sale on VFXHaiku.com!

    I’ve finally decided to try and find a way to “make money on the internet”.

I’m going to give this a go, and see if there’s any demand for this kind of thing… I’ve been doing some light promotion of the site, without trying to seem to spammy, but it’s hard walking that fine line…

    Delft 16mm Anamorphic adapter for GF1

    A quick test of a VERY old 16mm Vistascope anamorphic adapter grafted onto my Panasonic GF1. Sorry for the crappy quality and shakiness of the footage.
