Presented by Imagine Films, Brian Glazer's
production was directed by Frank Oz, and
edited by John Jympson on a High Speed
6-Plate Steenbeck with a Telecine video tap
for instant review of the daily rushes.
We supplied the equipment for the location
editng in Boston. It was then moved to Con-
necticut for several months to refine the edit
and finally required installation at Sound One
in New York for the final touches.
Although the same equipment could be had directly at
Sound One, the editor was so happy with our high-quality
equipment, he requested a continuance through to the end.
The ST 6001(C) is a six-plate editing table suitable for both 16/17.5 mm and 35 mm perfo working with standard and CinemaScope film, 35 mm with sound shift system, 16 mm standard and Super 16. It is easy to switch from 16 mm to 35 mm format. One control knob adjusts film transport, speed, projection lamp and amplifier.
The rear screen projection by means of an optical compensation system with an 18-face revolving prism provides a brilliant, bright and sharp picture. Smooth film transport guarantees a steady image. Light is automatically reduced when the film transport is stopped. Easy threading saves time and prevents film damage.
High quality sound reproduction is due to a specially designed 30W amplifier and 3-way loudspeaker. Slide faders for each channel and as well as bass and treble control, stereo is optional. Direct threading saves time and ensures minimum wow and flutter. The sound heads are interchangeable. An adjustable dynamic compressor provides better control of softer passages and automatic volume muting at high speeds.
The quartz synchronised electronic drive ensures a high level of accuracy with a single lever speed selector for variable speed control in both directions with notches for synch speed and fast speed. The Steenbeck universal counter is standard equipment.
