Can you just remind me what it costs for you guys to do a lube and adjust, assuming no unexpected problems.
we usually charge AU$390 for a full service, including checking lens collimation. Given the time it takes it's far from being a money spinner for the company, but we're pretty committed to keeping film an option for filmmakers down under. It tends to be mainly experimental filmmakers here who still shoot film, occasionally students, and a lot use Bolexes because they're affordable. Professionals in Australia (or at least the producers) seem to have all but forgotten film still exists. Funny thing is, when someone does have the balls to shoot on film, they invariably scoop up all the industry awards, and their careers take off. Go figure.
Very nice work, Dom, as always.
Thanks Jean-Louis - I'm a Bolex novice next to you, so if it gets your approval I'm a happy man!
