      Very strange. Nothing comes up on Google for Dorun Films. And it does sound like word play to DERANN. I also sent an email hoping for positive results.

For now thank you again and registering it is a good way to see a rough idea of who might buy new movies. We will forge ahead making the magic happen on beloved Super 8 Stereo.

            I'm quite sure if Dorun Films offered one of the classic Mannering Railway films they would sell at least one! (-maybe more!)

            -the same goes for Mannering titles dealing with film collecting and Cinema in general!

                I'm not a train film collector, but it does sound intriguing to hear, in stereo, a train going from left to right in the super 8 stereo spectrum!

                  What a waste they never did any in 'scope and stereo!

                  -horizontal subject, moving subject...

                  However, back in the days of commercial 8mm Railroad film production, sound all on its own was kind of a novelty. It's only when VCRs started to show up that sound really grew on these films. I have at least two of the later ones they actually dubbed from on-site recordings of the same trains.

                    Is Dorun films replacing Dave films which seems to have gone very quiet?

                      I got a message confirming my email was added! Looking forward to new announcements!

                      Just a thought however: While yes I can play stereo sound in my home - there was a time when I did not have such technology. So Lee, do not forget there are a lot of mono machines out there being used today. Mono choices will be a good source for more sales. I personally, if given the restriction, would NOT buy a stereo film if I couldn't play both tracks.........

                        Derann did at one time say that their stereo releases were mono-companionable. I assume this was because they were from Dolby Stereo analogue masters where the dialogue was on both tracks and the surround was also (but lower and out of phase), so all you would lose was some of the effects and the music mix would have been different.


                        • #13
                          I think Ged also said their mono sales (which were cheaper) were higher than their stereo sales when they offered both versions. Today though it would make sense just to offer the stereo soundtrack only.

                            I don’t think so, that’s something different, just starting with a „D“ at the beginning.

                              Well spotted Joachim :-)

                              We are lucky in this day and age to have Reel Image, Classic and the Monster Man making new films available so the variety of material is getting broader by the month thanks to collectors placing orders and supporting the dedicated efforts of those who make it actually happen.

                              May take a bit of time but watch this space and please register for updates.
                              Keep well and God bless..
