Thanks Billy. You are always so kind. I must say that it's not razor sharp (ratio?), as a Derann. But color is pristine, very well saturated (Agfa stock) and, as stated in my previous post, I love that movie [Wink] !

Very saturated indeed! Great screenshots. Touching film. I have heard that reel 6 of Titanic is the best reel and I'd love to get ahold of THAT reel (wink wink).

That, and I'd love that one minute sequence when Leonardo Di Caprio dies! HAHA! I'd put that on an endless loop, playing over and over!

Thanks, Michaeloose ( [Wink] ).
Yeah, a good movie indeed.

Osi would be probably sad to know Di Caprio doesn't die in reel 6 [Big Grin] !
Ciao.

In Sunday 17 (my name day) the BFCC well known “Greek Mafia” with Panayotis A. Carayannis, Yanis Tzortzis, Vagelis Proios and George Tsakonas came to my house for a movie night.
At the first (flat) part we watched:
My first film. Shot in 14/08/2009 with a Canon 814 camera at my kids summer party. 18 fps 100ft Color Silent.
H ftoxeia thelei kaloperash. Greek movie. 400ft B/W Greek Sound.
Laurel and Hardy - Tree in a test tube. 200ft Color Sound.
Ladies of love. 2x800 B/W English Sound with French subtitles. Brought by Yanis Tzortzis.

At the second (scope) part we watched:
Tom and Jerry. 200ft Color Sound.
Trailes (King Kong, Men in black, Lord of the rings - Return of the King, Troy) on 400ft reel Color Sound.
The magnificent seven. 2x400ft Color Sound.

I was very pleased to meet the “Greek Mafia” again (the word mafia is for fun of course). A team with great love for films and great knowledge. Next stop BFCC.

Interesting shot, Antonis. Such a good idea to imitate for my future screen captures eh eh eh.

I have the impression your super 8 shows are REAL shows, with good friends, drinks, food. Fun fun fun!

Antonis,

Your photo angle really gives me the feeling of watching a movie. Like I am sitting behind the projector. Gian you should do that angle next time.

Re your last batch of home movie with Canon 814, did you also notice such bluish tint with internal 85 filter on the print?

regards,

Sadly, Gian, it's true [Frown]

There used to be a film club here, which had annual gatherings and screening parties for it's members, but it shut down due to lack of interest.

Currently, I'm one of around 3-4 people in the entire county as far as I know who still uses Super 8/8 mm.

Christian
perhaps each one of those fellas has a couple of friends sharing the same passion and you don't know.
I mean, it cannot be I'm the only 8mm collector living in Verona. But I know for sure there are A LOT living not so far from my county.

I'm sure lots of people don't write on a 8mm Forum as we do (probably they don't even know some Forums about 8/16mm exist) but they must be out there.
Just try to find them out.

I met a couple of guys, last year (eBay) who were not supposed 8mm still existed (I mean printed, sold and bought).
I introduced them to Derann and CHC the same way I was. For years they had NO IDEA about all we still have (hoping it will go on and on about it).

And I must say they are now as electrified as they were in the 70's-80's - our 8mm heyday here in Italy - like me talking about movies, prints, collectors, stocks, bergains, projectors and all stuff we know so well. Who knows how many don't know???

I'm sure it is the same in Scotland, Stewart.

Don't forget or undervalue 8mm was the only way to 'make' home cinema, some ( [Roll Eyes] ) years ago (16 was much used in school and parish). Each family (or almost) had a projector. They must be somewhere, so.
Of course we all know lots of them were sold (and still are); maybe others were simply dumped.
But I'm sure a massive quantity is still packaged in huge boxes stored in attics and basements. SUPER 8 PROJECTOR it's probably the only one note marked on them (like all boxes containing Christmas trinkets we have to load on our shoulders every year to put our tree on).

IT'S AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY is an unacceptable statement; it is expensive today the same way it was 30 years ago! Bergains are possible, we all know. And it is also possible to find interesting items at very good price.

This Forum (as others) is absolutely something precious to keep all this alive.
Going beyond the actual 'virtual' way to be in touch with people from everywhere around the world as we do here would be great. Having the possibility to do the same with someone living nearby would be even better. It just depends on us [Wink] !

So, 'Greek Mafia': just keep it up!
Ciao ragazzi [Big Grin] !

Yes Gian, but I find it fascinating that only recently has Blu-ray and projection actually caught up with our Home Theater and yet, though it's as sharp and sharper, it STILL isn't film!

I do wish I lived closer to all of you. I'd love to live on the other coast, as it appears that many of the die-hard collectors are over there, (though, i must admit, it appears that there are quite a few in california).

Beautiful print without a scratch, but with a little orange/sepia tint, which I don't mind, it sort of adds to the atmosphere of the movie. And I like the little filmcase it came in..
I put in a vote for best looking movie couple for Alain Delon and Sonia Petrova btw [Big Grin]
Thanks Gian!

Peter, I'm so happy you finally got it!
You told me nothing eh eh eh. Well, I'm really happy (more than happy, considering I just received the parcel and re-shipped it to you without checking the content).

More than welcome, Peter!

Peter, those shots are so great. Whenever I want a good laugh I watch one of those wonderfully cheesy 50's/60's monster films.

What makes them so funny is you see these scientists, pontificating as well as other people being very serious and scared of the monster ...

... then you see the monster, and you wonder, "What the heck are they scared of?"

This doesn't apply as much to those great Ray Harryhausen Films ...

Thursday January 21st:

A worn, faded and spliced-to-pieces 2x400' of Aristocats, borrowed from the local elementary school (where I went some ten years ago). Not sure where it's from, but it had a "EDINBURGH EDUCATIONAL FILMS" title card at the very beginning, and a similar logo on the box.

Last night, watched "Our Gang" in the 1935 film "Anniversary Trouble" the Super8 print and sound was very good indeed, here is a screen shot which unfortunately did not come across well in the digital camera however it does give you an idea [Smile]
 -
The next film shown last night was "The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer" 1938 all on one reel, for this film I used some home made reels I made years ago with a two inch centre.
 -
Its been a while since this film was last hit the screen and some reels have faded, however its still a good movie to watch.
 -
from left Tommy Kelly as Tom Sawyer, May Robson as aunt Molly and David Holt as Sid.
 -
[Tommy Kelly] as Tom Sawyer.
Producer David O Selznick was soon to go on to making "Gone With The Wind"
