Call up the lab you intend to work with and see if they can give you some cans/cores/black bags.
Good Morning Adrian... I did that twice and they said they would and must have forgot. They have been so great with everything else so I have given them "a pass" on this..., I just did not want to push it and be a pest about it.

Else, perhaps pre-pay shipping for the cans and speak with them 'bout that. Normally I just have whomever is running the footage over ask for some cans ect when they're there.

If all fails you might contact urbanski films. http://moviecraft.tr...m/supplies.html he has some "new" 400ft cans listed (http://members.tripo...0ftsteelcan.jpg) for about 5 bucks each. of course if you needed a pallet load Kodak would sell them. (Which is probably where Urbanski got his)

I am having the hardest time finding about half a dozen empty 16mm cans for my short ends (400 foot cans). I've looked at film supplies sites, ebay, etc. Anybody know where I can find about 6 or 7 cans? I would certainly appreciate it.
Ask that ebayer, he certainly has what you are looking for.
Here is the direct link of the product seller.
