Hi guys,

I'm shooting right now and I have several cans already back from the lab and I'm waiting to get everything shot and processed before I have it telecined so I can have it consistently graded, etc.

How can I store this without it turning to crap?

Fridge? Dry, dark environment?

I've found a few contradictory suggestions so I thought I'd ask the experts.

Thanks,

Nick.

How long are you planning to keep it?
A few months, or even years at a pinch, is no problem, just keep it cool and dry.
But don't refrigerate or freeze it. Unless the humidity is controlled and the cans sealed you may lock in moisture which will wreak havoc when it is opened.

Six months max - it's on a shelf in my room and I try and maintain the moisture in the room with desiccates and ventilation. It should be fine, it'll be ok... hopefully lol.
