RIP Film acquisition in Australia

To commiserate the closure of the last lab in Australia to process motion picture film, I though it appropriate to dig up the first (and now most likely last) film I shot on 35mm. Shot on a noisy old Arri 35III with a bunch of short ends salvaged from various productions, it was a great experience being limited to two, sometimes three takes at a stretch. I think the closest thing to being forced into these limitations these days would be participating in a time-limited film competition, such as the various 24 hour film challenges going about. Of course you could always just set yourself some rules, and try and stick to them!

There is a language warning on this one.
