    TO FILM QUALITY REVIEWER: A lot of my colour filming in the future will be done at night, or in dark interiors, which I will be lighting with a portable lamp on the camera. These two rolls are meant as a test, and I thus ask you to please write me in detail (a personal letter would be great...it will also save my feelings) spelling out what can be done and can't be done under such circumstances. Film was shot at 125 ASA. At times I felt that I must be over-exposing, I also felt that the establishing view shots were under. Also please tell me, what happens to the colour tones as the subject walks into the full blast of the single light source at camera. Thus should I in future not film people walking into camera, and stick to filming them walking across screen. Thanks for your attention. I guess its better to make my first mistakes on a soft story right at the beginning. P.S. I would have liked to shoot a third roll but I worried about costs. 200ft Colour 7242. Rolls are not numbered, but first ONE starts with high shot of the podium. Cars in 3 categories, standard cars, sports cars, and prestige cars, drive up the ramp to centre podium, then a footman opens the door and a model exits and shows her dress. The footman holds aloft her competing number. All the cars are identified by a plaque bearing the make, in the place usually occupied by the number plate. This goes for all the cars except for the very last one which is a Ferrari 2 plus 2. Cars which were shown were French, Italian, British and German. The models were French and Ivorien. Show was the first ever for the I-C and was sponsored by SHELL. The dresses were the latest models form France's Haute Couture establishments, which are retailed by local outfits, even the shoes were by Christian Dior, Louis Jourdan etc. I would say that there were over two thousand people present.
