Do you know who Jacques Bolsey was? Also known as Jacques Bogopolsky, he was the inventor of the Bolex movie camera, the name of which is derived from his own. If you’d like to know more, especially given that his Wikipedia page is really bare, there’s a documentary in the works about him and his importance to cinema history, as well as how he’s now influencing a new product called the Digital Bolex. And if you really, really want to see it, you can help it reach its budget goal of $35,000. The funny thing is, this doc, titled Beyond the Bolex, is seeking crowdfunding through Kickstarter to tell the story of something that was itself a huge Kickstarter success (the Digital Bolex, not the original, obviously). That’s half of the focus, while the other half looks back on Bolsey’s version, a camera that anyone who isn’t a film school reject will certainly recognize as the first they ever shot film on (it was mine!). It’s also a camera used at one time by Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Terry Gilliam, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson, David Lynch and Darren Aronofsky, all or any of whom are being sought for an interview in this documentary.
