Picturing: Shooting With the Arriflex Camera

Yours truly shoots a scene with a hoodlum. While going through my photo files recently, I found this little gem of a shot.

Mark, the actor here, was a great guy, and was always game to act as a tough type. Doesn't he look great? Actually, looking at this picture now, I'm struck by how 'Dick Tracy' he looks.

By the way, the location is Sir Winston Churchill Park, here in Toronto.

Was this completed? What's the title? Was it a student film?

"Matte Test" was its title.

This was a few years after I graduated from school.

A 35mm short. I should digitize the film. It was a fun film to make.
