FANTASTIC FUN DAY OF FILM [Big Grin]
Great turnout and nice to chat to everyone all day about film.
Many thanks to Nigel and his good lady for all the hard work also Richard Read for his heart felt speech on our collective love of film.
Took lots of pictures but heres one for a start more will follow.

I got some nice Derann Scope films to bolster the collection along with a Hammer filmed in 2 Perf Techniscope.

Thank you to all who purchased film from me for my fund raising effort to aid MacMillan Cancer Support we raised £50.

My latest brain wave to offer 8mm on the spot projector repairs proved interesting fixing one Eumig and located a fault on a Elmo GS1200. Think I'll do the same drop in centre at sunny Blackpool.

Another great event, with plenty to buy. Professionally organised and the catering from the church is amazingly good.

I filmed around a minute of the event on Super 8...we hope to show this at Blackpool this year.

Have you had any other indoor processed on the kodak yet ?

Best Mark.

Thank you Paul. Also hoping to show footage taken last year at Blackpool (by kind permission of Elaine Guest) as a tribute to our friend David.

Mark, in answer to your questions, I simply use an XL camera inside, and Wittner's 200 asa film; this always comes out well in lower light.

XL = the size of the aperture for the uninitiated usually a cinema camera with less lens elements as well.

It will be the clarity of the Fuji S5 Pro camera now 12 years old with that magic chip.

The old fuji reps used to follow me around dishing out 35mm stock when I eventually gave in getting the S5 for work. Still love that camera body with its film emulation settings.

Yes that projector could do with a little spit and Polish

I wouldn't worry about it Nigel I still have my stage makeup box from nearly 50 years ago some it is nearly growing moss!

Nice to hear so many loving Farnworth had a couple of phone calls today asking about Blackpool. Exciting times for any REEL film lover.

It's time for one of my Criswell Predicts moments.

I predict Blackpool 2019 this November will be a monumental success
