Travelling with FILM
Posted 17 March 2006 - 07:01 PM
I'm new to this site. Maybe some of you can help me with this.
I'm gonna be travelling to Jamaica to shoot a music video on 35mm. We're buying about 6000ft of short ends maybe some 50D - all the way up to 500T.
We're leaveing form Toronto, to Montego Bay, and then back again.
They say you should always bring the film as carry on. But 6000ft? We got like maybe 30 rolls of film. We can split it among 5 or 6 people but still. Has anyone got expericnce with this? I'm gonna phone the air line, but anything else someone can suggest? It seems like a big headache flying that much film back and fourth.
Thanks for any info.

Hmm I guess I should lookinto shipping it FEdex or something. I guess I just got scared with the whole NEVER CHECK your film in cargo since those x-rays scanners for cargo are much stronger.
But i guess Fedex would have done this kinda thing many times already.
