         I've been thinking of choosing the
         method of shooting using a 16mm from
         lcd in dark room.

         now, I imagine I could shoot it
         all by hand, but I would love to
         be able to program up something
         and let it run ... I wonder if
         there's anything like a known
         16mm camera that has a machine
         control mechanism, like an rs232
         port ...

         maybe something that some gov't
         group used to use ...

         also, what do you think would
         be the fastest but best film I
         could use for this project, of
         filming against lcd screen.
         how long do you think I should
         expose for ? what lenses might
         you use, how far away, etc ?
