Great stuff Graham, the editing is better than some of the 3 x 400 marketing films [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Wink]

Nice one Graham, made me laugh, didn't realise there was so much film in those little toy projectors.

Love it. Still have a few of those around here, along with the 1976 KING KONG. Wish I'd sprang for that ALIEN set, which came with film cartridge and viewer.

Ken Films 200' STAR WARS was only the second time I sprang for a color digest. (Took a chunk out of my lawnmowing money I'd saved up!) The first color 200' reel I ever bought was the Disney 20,000 LEAGUES squid fight. The local camera shop was conveniently located across the street from our largest cinema, so was able to see STAR WARS on the big screen, then step across the street to pick up a digest to take home. When the shop had sold out of those 200' reels, I talked them into letting me have the cardboard sign with poster art that was part of the special Ken Films STAR WARS store display.

That was so great graham! Really funny stuff...

btw- i thought the editing on the super 8 was pretty good...i mean, they did a pretty good job at selecting scenes that, if you had already seen the full film, you would relive it again almost...in a mere 1 minute [Smile] almost subconsciously [Smile]

I hope they make a sequel if he can find empire and jedi at a flea market [Smile]
