Velocity Update

 My modification of the Eclair for the Arri matte box seems like it will work with a 12mm lens. Nothing is as good as a rail system for this kind of work but this is the cheapest mod I could think of for now. It will allow me to shoot the text elements with images together instead of double exposing in the Bolex.  I imagine this poetic element as an important element of the film since it will carry some of the content for the two models who do not speak. This is how the beginning sequence of the film will work as well, black text over carefully selected images.
Here I am in late October shooting exteriors just before a hurricane. I need the actors for two more short sessions and the rest (I think) is copy work and titles.
