Sure there are filmtools, studio depot, and of course expendable recycler. Are there other discount places? Looking to get ~20 rolls and would like as much of a discount as possible.

check out wooden nickel, www.woodennickellighting.com, every once in a while they will have a sale on gels and all sorts of other things. Sometimes you will get really lucky and you can get half of a roll for about $20.

Yes, The Nickel sells their mix batch of rolls for $20. They have tons of different ones, all of varying length, so just dig though it.

Also, some rental houses (like Hollywood Rentals, Leonetti, etc) include expends in an as used basis.

If we buy, it?s usually from Studio Depot.
