Hi there. I'm new to all of this old school film editing and would like help. I've been reading about these "moviolas" and stuff about benches, tables, etc etc. Where could I find how information on how these things look? What kind of equipment (cheap) would I need to get to edit my film?

Not to be rude, but you could have googled "Moviola."

To edit on a flatbed you would need a flatbed, splicers and tape (one for picture one for sound), a paper punch, a machine to transfer sound to magstock, magstock, various grease pencils, sharpies.

Then you need a projector with a synched magstock player.

It's a lot of stuff...big stuff...heavy stuff.

Film Editing Nutz and Bolts is a great book explaining the technique of using a flatbed editor and synchronizers.
I edited my 20min 16mm student final that way. It took a long time, but I feel when editing real film and not just a computer file, you learn to respect the shots more and not just be intercutting willy nilly. I always like to have a long assembly edit and then trim and tighten up the ins and outs of shots second.
