Ilford 3200

I've been playing with 35mm film lately... The first one I tried out with my Olympus MJU-II was the Ilford Delta 3200!!! It's beautiful. Yes, a lot of grain but also some nice contrast. I had so much fun testing it out, and not knowing what the picture would look like. Here are some:

Fading Borders

Dear Friends & Fellow Filmmakers,

I'm currently Producing a Feature Length documentary that needs a lot of help. In conjunction with Nicolas Cuellar (director) Borja Campillo (dp), Julian Diaz Merino (2nd Unit Camera) and Felipe Duarte (Sound & Music Composer), we formed the MERCEDES TOURING LLC. Now,  we need sponsorship, funding, and any help whatsoever possible.

The Doc is about a couple (Mathieu de Genot & Patricio Aguirre), who want to drive their dream car (that took them 3 years to find), a Mercedes Benz 300 SE, back home (In Equador), from NYC.

We decided to borrow their dream, and follow them in this journey. But it won't be possible unless we can have some money to help us in this Journey.

Please send to your friends, co-workers, or anyone whom you think might be interested. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Charles Bukowski

It is not a secret, Bukowski is my favorite writer.. Someone whom, even though, might not have been seen as a positive person, is someone who I look up to. Someone whom I admire.

My dear friend, Meddy, showed me a poem of his, that I did not know.

Here it goes!

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going
to let anybody see

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
in there.

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody's asleep.
I say, I know that you're there,
so don't be

then I put him back,
but he's singing a little
in there, I haven't quite let him
and we sleep together like
with our
secret pact
and it's nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don't
weep, do

C. Bukowski

Um se chama ontem e o outro se chama amanhã, portanto, hoje é o dia
certo para amar, acreditar, fazer e principalmente viver."
