I can add a third order for 'The Wicker Man'. I'd love a trailer for it too.

Well here it is! I've made a voting form.

Super 8 Voting Ballot

I came up with this short list of choices considering many factors. I know everyone's choice is not up there so if you really strongly disagree with all the choices, I left a "suggest your own" box. Though I encourage you to vote on one of the choices to increase the odds.

Note that "Hammer Horror" refers to the franchise of Hammer films. There's a lot of demand here for Hammer films but everybody wants different ones. If Hammer Horror wins the vote then we'll have a follow up vote with a short list of Hammer films.

Also I left a box to put in your email or handle. You can be anonymous if you like. Though anonymity in this case might be an issue because we need real votes if this is going to mean anything. Not one person voting for Blade Runner 20 times!

DISCLAIMER: Nay sayers and skeptics, please keep your comments to yourself. We're all in the same community here and we all know that this might not pan out to become anything. If anything, this will just be a fun experiment. Plus we've all heard the skeptic side enough.

If this actually moves forward, then we'll turn these winning votes into pledges.

Rock the vote!

Also, let's keep this organized so feel free to share it with others!

I think it would be neat to see something newer if a feature is going to be released. My understanding is that Master & Commander (2004) is the must recent film to be released. So on that list either Casino Royale or The Dark Knight would be awesome. Don't get me wrong though, I love the classic films too, in fact, I watch more Black & White films then color films.
All that said, I didn't vote because the idea of buying a new film sounds awesome to me but when it comes right down to it am I gonna scratch up $800 and spend it on a film? Probably not, but it would be extremely tempting [Smile]

Thanks for all your votes! It looks like Blade Runner is the winner.

2001 came in second and Star Wars & Hammer Horror came in second.

I'll follow up soon with the next step. Thanks again, everyone!

The funny thing is that I'm pretty sure that there is a collector out there, (perhaps even a member of this very forum) who owns a 35MM print of this and could, if they chose to, get a print run or two made at that German super 8 lab. It's still up and running and "Bladerunner" would certainly be a release that would generate not just "buzz", but sales as well!

How could Derann issue features at prices less higher (as I remember but I may be wrong) that the ones suggested on this topic ?

Zechariah, personally I agree with you on that score. I would love to have Dark Knight as a feature.

Osi, that would be fantastic if they could loan it out to the German lab or to Steve who could then delegate.

Dominique, well there are a few things to consider. The changes in the Euro. The availability of stock has changed as well. Kodak has completely moved out of reversal film. That's why 100D rolls are so sought after. They don't use 100D to print these films (AFAIK) but the changes in availability says something about the global market of Super 8 stock, which is not disappearing but is certainly consolidating.

I can't comment on the availability of mag stripes.

35mm prints are harder to come by in some ways, simply because not many are being produced. If a movie hits 1,000 screens in the U.S. but 700 of them are digital then that's quite a lower number of 35mm prints that are ordered for release.

There is a 35mm release of Skyfall for example but I remember hearing that it was a very limited release because Sony is trying to push their Cinema 4K suite of products. On the other hand, 10 years ago, any film had many many 35mm release prints out there in theaters, which means higher chances that some of them could end up in the wild.

I have a couple sources to get my hands on 35mm Blade Runner prints. I'm going to investigate the first source tomorrow. No promises though! I'll report back either way.

Hello all.
I am extremely excited about the fact "Blade Runner" won the poll. I am ready to put a reasonable down payment on this project as soon as the source print is found AND a price estimate can be issued. BTW since I prefer screening in double system mode, I don't need a striped print and surely this can save some cash.

Hope we can make it through.
