Found that out when we got into Blackpool about 7.15 last night - missed the film show - which i was told was Roger Moore as 007 in A View to a Kill - but it was a long journey from South Wales and my good lady and I were shattered . Looking forward to a relaxing day today in Blackpool - blow the cobwebs away and a picture of me by the statue of my favourite comics - Eric and Ernie in the Winter Gardens - then the convention dinner tonight followed by the Sunday bonanza !!!!

Finally got rid of my Grandma at 5 pm and decided to take a trip to Blackpool. There was no sign of any action at the hotel when I arrived at 6pm though.

It will be interesting to hear who purchased this huge collection of Super 8 films David mentioned recently:

I didn't see any major collection on Super 8mm but Phil Sheard of Classic had some interesting bits and pieces - I bought Texas Chainsaw Massacre from him on 2 x 800ft - but if you looked around and got in there early then there were some good pieces.

Hi Shorty,

It was filmed on the Sunday of the convention - David Guest had some film students to record it. I saw a few people being interviewed and it looked like lots of footage was taken. From what I was told, once this has been edited it will be uploaded to Youtube - so watch this space for details as I'm sure we will all be notified when its up and ready to view.

I'm just back home. It has been a great event this year again. Waiting for better pictures and videos to come, here are mine to give some idea of the good time I believe everyone spent.

 -

Hard to say Nothing happened this week-end at the Blackpool's Hilton [Smile]

 -

This year, I attended the (16 mm) Friday night projection which was over three hours. It started with a mixed reel then there has been the James Bond feature David Skillern mentionned in a precceding message. I took the picture when people were still arriving so it looks half empty but don't worry, there were many people during the three days !

 -

Two projectors : one for the flat reel and the second for the scope film. The gentleman with the white t-shirt, interested by the projectors is from Scotland and came specially for the convention.

 -

A closer look at the material.

 -

The show is finished, time to rewind. Everything went well. I didn't picture the film but other people did. If someone wish to add these photos..

Nice, that you will also post pictures, Brian [Smile]

 -

Saturday night dinner. Since I was one of the few without tie, I tried to remain sit and discreet so I didn't take too many pictures that night.

 -

In addition to the dinner, there is a raffle and a cine quizz (my nightmare). On the table, you can see the prizes of the raffle (I won a super 8 cartoon and...the t-shirt).

 -

David Watson's Fumeo projector ready for the show to come after the dinner.

 -

Everybody was impressed by the quality of the picture provided by this machine.

They put the illuminations back on for either us or the TV outside broadcast of "Strictly Come Dancing"
 -
The sudden death finish to the film quiz, both got 12 out of the 15 questions right.
 -
The whole of my table at the Saturday meal examine their raffle tickets as the draw progresses, plus the other diners.
 -
The dealer's hall shortly after opening.

The other side of the hall.

That looks likes Ged Jones, Domonique?

Ged, like Keith is super 8 royalty and was fundamental in keeping 8mm alive, along with Derek and the gang.

it looks great, to think of these conventions going in 2017 and beyond both here and over the pond at cinesea is quite something.
isn't it great to see the young students filming it all with today's high tech digital cameras. i wonder what they made of our superior reel stuff. [Wink]
