An excellent day in every respect. David was doing his best keeping everyone happy and full credit to him in what was no doubt a difficult event to host. Paul Barker was also doing an amazing job in organising and sorting the hundreds and hundreds of films. Elaine and family kept everyone more than adequately fed and watered, so it really was a team effort. As Lee so rightly put it, keep David and family in your prayers, as I am doing daily.

Morning David lad. They never did make computing easy blast it. Take care pal.
Been sifting thru the archive of the old film fairs of years ago and found some 8mm I shot in Cinemascope one in particular was The Watermans London on the day Star Wars got its release by Derann. Now that's a monumental bit of footage.

My photos are all on 35mm slides, being processed as we speak. As soon as I have them back, I'll email digital copies to Dominique for him to kindly upload. I also shot some Super 8 film.

Thanks to Dominique; I have just emailed him pictures from David's Open Day which he will upload here. These pictures are taken from the slides I was shooting on the day, so are not digital images. However, you will be able to see clearly a flavour of what happened on the day. There really was pile after pile of 16mm films.
