Interesting. The camera shown at 1:07 in the video isn't nearly as large as the trailer cam (artist's rendering, vaporware until proven otherwise) and the lens-subject and lens-back of camera (if that's where the film plane is) distances make no sense for possible focal lengths. I don't think he's shooting over 1:1, and the images on the negs shown later in the video are larger than that.

Until proven otherwise, fantasy.

Re the fantasy, sorry, dream, that drives all this, I don't see the connection between straight-on head shots and culture. More marketing fluff. Wrinkled old faces with stubble and without context ...
