TITLE WRITER BOON TO AMATEUR MOVIE FANS (May, 1933)

TITLE WRITER BOON TO AMATEUR MOVIE FANS

Amateur movie-making enthusiasts may prepare their own titles, including animated ones, with the aid of a new title writer. This device, an illuminated stand with an easel at front and a place for the camera at the rear, works in three positions. When set at an angle, as shown above, it permits a hand to be photographed drawing a title. A vertical setting films movable letters for an animated title.

    Oddly enough, I saw a wind-up 16mm camera just a few hours ago – it looked like a Bolex.

    Hmm – the one here is likely an 8mm though.

    You just have to stare into the lights as you write.

    Actually this thing could have been used for home animation (if you could draw), so its pretty neat.
