My parents bought me my first movie camera when I was 14, not long after they realised that photography was not just another passing phase. I can't remember the brand, but it was a Russian standard 8mm camera that had to be wound up to operate. Exposure metering was accomplished by a selenium light meter.
This camera had the ability to rewind the film to create a double exposure and I used it to make things appear and disappear. My friend Michael and I started making a SciFi movie that was never finished because we couldn't afford the film, but we did have fun building the sets and models. We started another movie – a spy movie – a couple of years later with a few more friends and a borrowed super 8 camera, and although that project progressed further it suffered the same fate in the end due to lack of budget.
