Hi,

Before I stick this film on ebay I thought I'd see if any one wants it here?

I have two 1000' new factory sealed Fuji Eterna 8553 (250T) for sale.

It's film left over from my recent shoot.

Shall we say .30 USD/foot? Plus S&H.

Perfect for a short film, that's 22 minutes of fun with 35mm!!

Call Fuji and find out, if you're going to be a filmmaker you need to develop the resourcefullness to discover these things. It's a good habit to get into finding info from the source, rather than what people may tell you.

Richard, I talked to Fuji, they told me that they wouldn't touch anything you've owned for their lives. (Joke)

What I really wanted to know is : How much are you selling the lot for ?

Ah! Boddington your killin me! if you had posted this a few months earlier I would have been all about it. As it is I have all my money tied up trying to proccess and telecine the 16mm stock I already bought (although I got two hours of 16mm for 650, so maybe I would be in an even tighter jam if I had bought it)

I assume this is all left over from the horror your making? how is that going?

Well Matthew,

Looks like the other forum members helped you work out the advanced math.

As for my feature...it's wrapped, and I'm on standby with Deluxe Toronto to begin my 4:4:4 transfer to HDSR. Yes no expense spared.

Yeah that's a good one!

If I get it done, my mother will watch it, then into the closet it will go. I just do this as a hobby, you can't actually make money in the film business. Just ask SONY.

R,


It was a rather good one, wasn't it. :D :D :D :D :D

You shot a feature on 35mm for ONE viewer !!!!! :blink: :blink: :blink: :blink: :blink:
Why not use a slightly cheaper format...like Hi8, or if you must Mini DV...I just can't understand your logic, Richard, unless you give 'Perfectionism' a totally new name.

Mathhew Buick, who just mispelt his own name, how embarassing.

I admire your attitude, Richard, but all that film's gotta cost you a bit, why not settle for the best of the worst, like Mini DV transferred onto a Blu-Ray disc.
Also, your camera must turn a few heads, my new Sankyo did that, and got a few laughs from mindless Chavs, but getting back to the point, it's either big and quiet, or, it's small and noisy, so either way you're going to get stared at.

Oh well, your dignity, mate, not mine,
Matthew Buick.
