I am trying to get together a project that I want to shoot on 35mm. I am looking into getting short ends for the obvious financial reasons. Now I know that several stock houses exist, and they will sell depending on the length of the roll, short ends for any where from .15 a foot to almost standard cost. I am wondering if it would be worth my while to call around to production companies, or 2nd AC's and seeing if anyone has stock left over from recent projects they would be willing to part with at even better prices. What are peoples thoughts on this?
Also a secondary question. I know that shorter rolls of 16mm stock tend to collect more dust then full 400ft rolls. 35mm is also less susceptable to dust then 16mm, but has anyone had problems with excess dust on shorter rolls of 35mm? if anyone would care to comment, it would be much appreciated.
