hi, Filmmakers make film. Digital peeps make Video! I am too old school to change, when the digital age came, I was in the process of converting my Kinor 35 to two perf at Aranda, when the digital tsunami hit.  Projects shot on film began to fade away, to the sorry state it is now. Only those with studio support could afford to shoot film. Although 2 perf was a cheaper way to shoot film for indie projects, the lack of cameras and support doomed it before the 2 perf movement could begin.

           I have slowly aquired a number of 2 perf Camera's, and would like to start a 2 perf workshop in New York City. So few of todays generation have never touched a film camera, so training sessions would be necessary. Since most of the gear is russian, I will approach this group first, to see if there is any interest in a workshop.

Let me know if you'd be interested in selling any 2-perf cameras. I have a beautiful 4 perf Arri 2C with a Steve's Cine mod motor that I love, but saving some film costs with 2-perf or 3-perf sounds interesting to me.

I too am interested in a 2 perf camera if you are willing to sell any, but I don't want to hinder your workshop idea which is way cool.

Hey fellows it has taken me 7 years to put together enough 2 perf sync cameras to support a feature, no one will shoot in 2 perf unless they have at least 2 cameras, and a spare. It's rare to find 2 perf cams in the same make as well.

I just scored an original Arri 2-Perf movement and gate for my 2C on eBay.

 

There was a Arri BL on there for a while for $5k and I think there is a CP 35mm 2P on there too.

I'd love to have that xr-35, but I've not got that kind of funds laying around at the moment. 

Hopefully it will go to someone who can use it, rather than cannibalize or make a museum piece out of it.

Good luck with workshop idea.
It's good to know other people with 2-perf equipment.
I'm based in the UK and have two 2-perf cameras; a 35BL4 and a Cameflex both converted by Bruce.
On a positive note, it is much easier and cheaper dealing with 2-perf in post now than it's ever been.

I've been in the works of trying to shoot a project on film for the first time. 2-perf definitely caught my eye, but the seem so hard to find to rent.

Should be a few places in LA or NYC that can change out the movement of some cameras and get you 2-perf. Probably a great option for student productions. 3-perf is much easier to find though...and that saves you 25% in film...

Arri NY has two 2-perf Arricams and Abel Cine rents the Aaton Penelope, which they will configure in either 2 or 3 perf. Panavision rents their G-II in 2-perf.

Didn't ARRI NY move from NYC to Jersey?...

Why they still call it "ARRI New York" when it's located in Jersey is beyond me.

Yeah, they’ve moved, but they still call themselves Arri New York. Even when you go there, the signage and all. Not located too far from where the NY Giants and Jets play...  :D

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut...If you can get to it in less than a 5 hour drive it should be all be the same thing. Takes 13 hours to get across Texas.  :)

Yes, ARRI NY which serves NY is located in Secaucus, NJ.  They were able to have a larger more modern facility for both the camera and the lighting and grip side of the business.  Minutes from Manhattan, what's not to like?
