American Cinematographer Amateur Movie Makers Contest, 1938 - Scenic
"'Hot Water,' by Earl Cochran, S.A.C., of Colorado Springs, is 375 feet of 8mm. Kodachrome. The subject covers with considerable thoroughness a visit to the geysers. The photographer, although he has been making motion pictures but a year and a half, shows plenty of promise for even more work out of the ordinary when he gets better acquainted with problems of exposure and color. That is not said in any manner of derogation of the work that took the nod for the present subject." American Cinematographer, Jan. 1939, 17.
Discussed in "Keen Competition Marks 1938 Contest" (American Cinematographer, Feb. 1939, 62), and "Setting 1938 Contest Winners to Music" (American Cinematographer, March 1939, 173, 192).
