I’d be interested in hearing comments from people like me who backed this project in October 2014 to assist Ferrania in making new Super 8 film. We have received nothing but excuses and I believe when you take money from people there is an accountability which Ferrania must front up to. It’s not about the money really, it’s the lack of action! Could we hear from pledgers and not loads of people who think it’s a disgrace yet did not back this. Action as a group of pledgers may be needed.

I'm more than pessimistic about seeing a Ferrania's colour reversal filmstock [Frown]

Well Simon, I know you are looking for comments from pledgers, but even as a non-pledger I have to say that I find this situation disgraceful, and extend my sympathy to all the people who, unlike myself, had the guts to actually put up their hard earned cash. It looks like an awful lot of people have been conned.

Shall we assume that this is proving to be much more difficult than anticipated?
