So after this weekends shoot, I have realized we are going to run out of film likely before we finish shooting, so I am on the hunt for some cheap film. We don't have much money, or much needs. I am looking for 600-800' of 16mm color negative. Past that I am pretty flexible. If anyone has any Vision 200t (7274) that would be excelent, since I have 200 ft of that already and could shoot the whole end scene in an older stock, but in general I can be flexible since the scene I need it for needs to look different than the rest of the picture

Can anyone help? I need help fast, we shoot the rest of the project this weekend.

Stocks we have shot so far:
200t v2 (7217)
500t v2 (7218)

stocks we have in can but haven't loaded yet:
200t v1 (7274)

But we will consider anything. Fuji or Kodak. Also small amounts of black and white could be useful, if the price is right.

(and for what its worth, never let anyone tell you that shooting oners saves film. The problem we had was trying to shoot the end shot, that holds while credits roll, and at the end of a minute long take, the actress blows a bubbles into the camera. Problem was despite practice and rehearsals going smoothly, the bubbles were camera shy during the actual take. I suppose these things happen.)


But any help at all would be greatly appreciated
