Another great article by Phil Rhodes in the June issue of American Cinematographer.  This one is for all us film lovers.  It discusses the making of a short documentary, the subject of which is a man who owns one of the last film shops in the world, devoted solely to Super 8 and 16mm.  He hits all the salient points we talk about here. 

 

You can view the film here:

Thanks, Phil!

5 miles from my front door. I'm surprised I haven't been in, must have cycled past a dozen times

And he's younger than me.

I wish I had something like that here.

That one was funny. They're still running their 16mm projection nights, as far as I know. Perhaps we should organise some sort of get-together.
