Failed Experiment

I wanted to try a different approach to the Film-on-Film technique. This is what I did:

1) Taped two strips of scrap film to the mask of the Sprocket Rocket.

2) Inserted the mask, loaded the film, and shot the entire roll into a bright, white light.

3) Rewound the film, removed the mask, and then reloaded the film.

4) Taped a magnifying lens to the camera lens, and then shot the second layer as close-ups.

    I'm completely confused, and do not understand at all what you did - but I think this is an AWESOME result! The sexy, vintage card made me think of you.

    BTW... I tried the film weaving experiment, and my old scanner just HATED it! Light bar not bright enough to transmit image.
