I wish I could but with teaching on the Monday it would be too long for me. But I'm sure it will be a success for David
Posted by Simon McConway (Member # 219) on November 21, 2018, 11:55 AM:
I too will be teaching on Monday but will be delighted to attend the Open Day. See you there!

thank you Simon. look forward to seeing you.
Posted by David Skillern (Member # 607) on November 21, 2018, 01:03 PM:
But I do believe I would be coming much further than you and having just returned from Blackpool - i'm afraid I can't make the journey again this year. But I'm sure everyone who attends will support David and his family.
Posted by Paul Barker (Member # 4318) on November 22, 2018, 04:31 AM:

The proposed date of 9th December is not far from the shortest day which means days of limited daylight. This could affect long distance car drivers who dislike driving in such conditions.
I suggest that the date be changed to some time in the spring, or failing that, give members a chance to buy by mail by advertising some of the films for sale on this Forum as David has done in previous years.
Posted by Mark Mander (Member # 340) on November 26, 2018, 02:35 AM:
I'm sorry to point this out but sadly David has serious health issues,another date might not be possible and those wanting to attend won't be put off by the shortest day,Mark.
Posted by Paul Barker (Member # 4318) on November 26, 2018, 02:54 AM:
Mark. thank you for pointing that out. some people obviously did not know.
Posted by Maurice Leakey (Member # 916) on November 26, 2018, 03:44 AM:
Thank you for the information. I'm very sorry to hear the news.

I will send a note to David and love to all, unhappily, commitments in theatre prevent my return - Cheers, Shorty

Looking forward to this, I hope David doesn’t mind, I told the students who made the Blackpool DVD and the documentary David has been involved in, they would like to come along to say hello.
Posted by Paul Barker (Member # 4318) on December 01, 2018, 02:23 AM:

Posted by Adrian Winchester (Member # 248) on December 04, 2018, 06:21 AM:
I've been researching any possible way of travelling from London (without vast expenditure) but I'm seriously out of luck, partly due to certain local bus and train services that don't operate on Sundays.
However, I've found an overnight coach service that would get me to Preston early on Sunday morning, so if a kind person travelling from/though Preston could help me out with a lift, just on the way, please let me know!
Posted by Heidi Barker (Member # 6191) on December 08, 2018, 12:34 PM:
have you managed to find anyone to help Adrian? If not I now will have space in my car i'm in preston
Posted by Paul Barker (Member # 4318) on December 09, 2018, 11:59 AM:
a big thank you to all who attended David Guests open day today. and to those who traveled a long distance. inc Mark Norton, Simon mcconway.Bob Nicholls Simon Balderston, Stuart Reid and Nigel Higgins.(sorry if i have left anyone out). the day was a great success and the weather was very kind i know David was delighted to see everyone.
Posted by Del Phillipson (Member # 513) on December 09, 2018, 12:55 PM:
Thanks Paul, it was a great day, just got back. I absolutely adored the Worlitzer, what a fantastic piece of equipment. Got some nice bargains plus a great AAA title from David himself :-).
Posted by Mark Todd (Member # 96) on December 09, 2018, 02:16 PM:
Great that many people went for David.
And sounds like it was as good a day as it could be too.
Also some food etc for visitors.
Best wishes David, Mark.
Posted by Stuart Reid (Member # 1460) on December 09, 2018, 03:19 PM:
Lovely to see everybody, a terrific turnout for David. I've just got back home!
Posted by Lee Mannering (Member # 728) on December 10, 2018, 04:49 AM:
It was a nice to see so many supporting David and the family although sad as well to see a film friend poorly. If you do please put David, Elaine and the family in your prayers as I'm sure they will be having a tough time now.
Thank you Paul for being such a support yesterday and I think most of us will be very happy to have purchased something from David's collection to treasure.
Posted by Simon Balderston (Member # 5106) on December 10, 2018, 05:28 AM:
great to see everybody a big thank you to elaine and david kind regards simon

Could someone post some pictures ?
Posted by Nigel Higgins (Member # 4312) on December 10, 2018, 07:38 AM:
Thankyou to david and his family for putting on this day .it was very enjoyable seeing everyone and good to buy some films i was truely moved when talking to david himself .thoughts are with you and your family.
Posted by Joe Caruso (Member # 11) on December 10, 2018, 09:23 AM:
Bless you all - Shorty
Posted by Simon McConway (Member # 219) on December 10, 2018, 09:31 AM:
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.
Posted by David Guest (Member # 2791) on December 11, 2018, 04:31 AM:
the reason there are never no pictures as you need a degree to put them on why not do it plain and simple like they do on reel magic
Posted by Lee Mannering (Member # 728) on December 11, 2018, 05:50 AM:
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.
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on December 11, 2018, 06:43 AM:
David, if you wish, you can e-mail me pictures so I can resize them ans post them on the forum
Posted by David Guest (Member # 2791) on December 11, 2018, 09:04 AM:
I never took any but simon mconway took plenty he is on the forum
Posted by David Skillern (Member # 607) on December 11, 2018, 02:03 PM:
Try and have a good Christmas with your family. You are a true gent, sending you best wishes from South Wales.
Posted by Simon McConway (Member # 219) on December 13, 2018, 03:33 AM:
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.
Posted by Mark Todd (Member # 96) on December 13, 2018, 03:46 AM:
Slides, brilliant Simon.
Is that on the new kodak film.
What do they work out at cost wise please as been fancying a try myself.
Posted by Simon McConway (Member # 219) on December 13, 2018, 03:53 AM:
It's two of the new Kodak Ektachrome slide films for £23 inc postage on 7dayshop.com
Processing is £7-£10. The slides I took were on Fuji 400ASA film, as the light wasn't too good inside, but I did use the new Ektachrome 100ASA back in October and results were great.
Posted by David Guest (Member # 2791) on December 13, 2018, 04:01 AM:
if anyone took any pictures it would be nice to see them on here if you email them to doug he will put them on thanks
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on December 13, 2018, 04:04 AM:
Great, Simon !
Posted by Simon McConway (Member # 219) on December 19, 2018, 03:50 AM:
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.
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on December 19, 2018, 03:59 AM:
Pictures will be posted within a few hours when I have access to my computer at home. Watch this space 😉
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on December 19, 2018, 08:15 AM:
Here are the six pictures sent by Simon. Thanks to him we have a record of that day.
