I own one too, tried, and gave up where you just got started.
Went on to buy an ancient 35mil camera instead.

I don't know of any microfilmcamera filming, but I do remember a black
and white film on 35mil, shot with a 35mm photo camera, so there is
this flicker rhythm of alternating frames going on (since photo camera
frames are 8 perf and 35mil cinema frames 4 frames, but you knew that

I am very sorry that I dont remember the title of the film or the name
of the filmmaker, but I seem to remember it was by an Austrian.
Marc Adrian, an early Tscherkassky ? I don't know..
