Movie Making Manual/perf

  • Previously known as "Techniscope"
  • THX 1138 was shot in Techniscope.
  • Natively 2.35:1 aspect ratio
  • Uses half as much film as 4-perf
  • Is difficult to find cameras and telecine facilities
  • The cut for 4:3 TV is radical because there's no top and bottom to expand into
  • The new, fine-grained stocks make 2-perf very attractive
  • Be very careful about hairs in the gate and lens flare because there's almost no frame line
  • Tough to optically print but it can be done (e.g. Multivision235)
