You can get interesting images by hitting the pause button on your video and shooting a photo off of the television screen. This is James Cagney from City for Conquest.
This is from an old cartoon, obviously. Sometimes you get those phantom bars of light. The last one is from an avant-garde film. I thinks it’s by the lettrist Jean Isadore Issou.
This isn’t the best post for my return to my cinema blog, but I guess I need to get my feet wet before I plunge back in.
