Hi All,
Sorry for the delay, but it couldn't be helped. I shot fewer stills this time because I was also doing video. The idea is to make a retrospective video of the event, so if anyone has stills from the very beginning, please contact Doug or me.
Anyway, here is round one of Cinesea X:

As usual I drove up with Gary Crawford, and as usual we had a fine old time on the trip.
Arriving in Wildwood, the weather was as close to perfect as you could get. There is always something new going on, and in this case it was kite flying:

 -

The joys of unloading:

 -

...and Gary came prepared. What better way to detect vinegar prints than to bring "the gold standard" with you for reference...

 -

Speaking of bringing things, stock up when you go to Wildwood as stores are a little ways off.

 -

If there is such a thing as magic, it exists here: a simple room transformed into a warm and friendly haven by a group of people with a shared love of film.

 -

Of course, our old friend John is always there in spirit:

 -

Gradually the tables filled up with "stuff"...:-)

 -

...and it was time to say "hello" to old friends as well as new ones:

 -

That is about the limit; as always, someone post a line or two, and I will continue here so we keep the whole thing in one thread.

Claus.

That's the spirit, Steve [Smile]

Given that this was the 10th CineSea, we had to have t-shirts.
Our French friend Jean-Marc designed the logo (if I remember correctly) and Lou F. took care of the making of them. They are comfortable and with sharp printing (do you sense a sales pitch here?)

 -

Soon the room hummed with the usual symphony of soundtracks, from horror classics through musicals to cartoons:

 -

...and we said hello to a new friend, Jack Cleveland. Jack teaches film and runs 16mm in his class. Definitely one of us!

 -

We owe Doug, Lou Franchetti and his son a lot for all the footwork they do to ensure this event happens every time (plus for the load of films they always have with them):

 -

As usual, Doug lit up his "regular area" with his GS-1200 Xenon:

 -

Familiar face, familiar pose, Gary Sloan inspecting a print:

 -

Another who went from "a name on the website" to "a face in the room" was Thad Komorowsky. Welcome aboard!

 -

That's the limit (or so the website guard dog tells me) so I'll be back with some more.

Claus.

The shirts are great!

-Nicely made and a decent price too! (Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt.)

As a matter of fact my kid went to school wearing his today.

-can you imagine one seventh grader explaining what "Film Collecting" is to another seventh grader?

I am torn between explaining "film" to someone and just giving up before I even start.. [Big Grin]

Geoffrey Curtis was back as well. His enthusiasm and high spirits are always welcome:

 -

Steve Klare and his wife joined us again....

 -

...and little Steven was, as usual, loving every minute of it:

 -

Films ranged across all genres and decades:

 -

 -

Then there was this gorgeous IB Tech print of Douglas Sirk's "Magnificent Obsession." (I liked it so much, I took it home with me...):

 -

Gary Crawford brought a jewel with him: "Lady and the Tramp." Full-length Derann print. Scope and stereo sound...any questions :-)

 -

That's it for now, a few more to come.

Claus.

Thank you, guys. I'll try to add some more this afternoon if I can.

On we go...

A special treat this time was Joe Griesbach bringing an Ampro/Strong carbon 16mm rig:

 -

Feast your eyes on the kind of industrial "beauty" such machines could have. The Art Deco elements around the sign....they didn't have to do it, but they did:

 -

Joe has a mission (we asked nicely): if he can get the rectifier fixed, it would really be something to see this carbon-arc monster light up Doug's big screen for the Saturday night screenings come spring 2015. One more reason to come :-)

 -

Gary had his workhorse Pageant, GS and Eumig at hand and a nice list of films to sell:

 -

Now when I show Mr. Capazzo....

 -

...I think you know what is coming:

 -

Espresso and homemade pumpkin cheesecake was excellent fuel as the day wore on.

 -

Of course, you can bring your bike to work it off too :-)

 -

...more next time.

Claus.

Janice,

Thank you; as long as people enjoy them, I am happy to do it.

Graham, you're not kidding about the cake; John Capazzo is a good baker, so the cake went fast.

Back to the action:

One thing you can count on at Cinesea is Lou Franchetti and Lou, Jr. bringing stacks (and stacks) of 16mm from every genre. I treasure the very nice print of "Freaks" that I bought from them a show or two ago.

 -

Some people come for the whole event, some re-appear just to say "hi" and wish us success. That kind of intimacy gives a special "neighborhood" feeling to the show:

 -

Quiztime: how many reels in this picture :-)

 -

On Doug's 'museum table' we had this mint-condition Elmo sound recorder for hookup to a silent camera:

 -

And a soundtrack stripper (pardon my language...)

 -

Lest a casual reader think we do nothing but watch movies(!), once you step outside, you are reminded of the wonderful 50es/60es atmosphere that permeates Wildwood. Just in our parking lot, this beauty had shown up:

 -

With sunset Saturday, next on the agenda was the dinner and then the late screenings back at the hotel. A few more images and then I'll wrap it up:

 -

Claus.

By now, the Boathouse restaurant must be used to us :-)
Good food and flexible seating for this motley crew keep us coming back:

 -

The gang's all here:

 -

 -

The lovely lady is our good friend Simone who graced our table after scheduling conflicts had stopped her previously:

 -

After dinner, the films ran on into the night back at the Ocean Holiday. Come Sunday, amidst some last screenings and packing, we got a group shot together, taken by Simone:

 -

There you have it, CineSea X. For a summing-up image, I thought The Mysterious Man in the Black Hat said it best:

 -

My newly-gotten Tech-print of "Magnificent Obsession" ready to roll:

 -

The title of that film pretty well sums up our hobby. It also explains why we take time off to spend two week-ends a year in a small hotel on the Jersey shore. If you still have doubts about coming, remember this: to my knowledge, not a single person who has come to Wildwood has regretted it. We have had nothing but good feedback. Make plans for the spring 2015 CineSea show. It only gets better....

Claus.

You're welcome, Dominique; maybe one day we can have the pleasure of your company as well [Smile]

A video may be in the making, but ideally we will still want some pictures (or even video) if available, from the first shows. Time will tell.

Wonderful pictures Claus. I hope to be there again in; probably in Spring of 2016. Well worth the long drive from Texas. Nice to be with fellow film collectors.
