It took me a bit to replicate the problem that you are viewing. It sounds like you are either viewing my site on a mobile device or on a system without the current version of Flash. I've been trying to overcome scaling problems on the mobile version without much success lately, that's still a work in progress. I viewed the site on my secondary system and I immediately saw the problem that you describe. Not only was the image title and description over the actual image but it was formatted incorrectly. I did a quick Flash update and the problem vanished. Give that a shot and see if it clears up for you. If not I definitely want to know! I'm in the process of rebranding myself outside of my company and if people are having problems viewing the site then I need to fix that. Thank you for bringing it to my attention as I was not aware of it until then.
Yes, I (still) use film for the majority of my cinematic work. The majority of what I shoot is super-16mm, as I own an Arri SR2 system. For my 35mm work I always rent the camera packages and related gear. Motion picture film could very well be on its last legs, and if that's the case I'm going to ride it until the end. From a professional standpoint I've definitley shot more video than film in my freelance days, which was a big reason why I created my own production company. With the exception of a single shoot, every video project I've ever done would've been better on film. Period. I created my own company so that I could find clients that still cared about visual quality over saving 7% on a budget. I use that number since it's the mean average per shoot that I spend on film stock, processing, and transfer. I'll defintely go into more detail if you want.
The respirator mask is a prop piece I modified/built for my series "Difference Engine". I wanted a salvaged look to it so I tore it apart and rebuilt it with all sorts miscellaneous debris, including a Zeiss filter ring. I tried it on to gauge its comfort level and to see if it was still possible to breathe out of. It became one of those things that a lot of work went into and you can barely notice in the final product.

And to everyone else, thank you for the kind reception!
