First Zone Plate Movie

Zone plate movie

The look and feel of this short film is gorgious. I remember as I was building my pinhole camera I was wondering if a movie camera could be modified to take pinhole images. Looks like it can be done. Neat.

Nick Shuval-Sergeev has created what he believes to be the first “motion picture” made with a zone plate. The short film, called “Eve”, is made in black & white and 20 seconds in length. It is very striking, taking advantage of the glow produced by strong contrast through a zone plate aperature… “I made it with a zoneplate on a Smena 8M camera, (about 30 frames, then assembled on the computer).”
