Hi guys,

Are there any places known for trading film stocks - or atleast buying a small amount of short ends for a reasonable price? I'm broke - so what better time than now to shoot on film? I'm shooting a multi-format concert tour film and need some super 16 (7277 or 7218) and super 8 (anything above 200asa). I've got:

750 ft. 5279, 35mm - dated 07/2001 - 10/2001
300 ft. 5274, 35mm - dated 10/2001

Any suggestions? There's gotta be SOME place I could barter this stuff.

The film you have is five years old. That is almost sure to be considered outdated by many potential users....

Still you might want to call the short end folks and see if they can sell you some ends, and if they have a market for the stock you have. In that part of the country, I would not be surprised if an ad in the local "free" Classifid papers (the one arround here is called the Pennysaver) might not give you a lead to someone who really wants to check out a 35mm camera or something..

The film itself was given to me as leftovers from a 35mm film shoot back in November 05. The results from their shoots (using short ends from the same grouping) turned out great with only slight discoloration, if any. I personally didn't see any problems a good colorist/telecine couldn't easily fix.
