  1. Jason, An an avid film collector here is my advice: 1. Keep it away from all other film. VS can be contagious and is an autocatalytic reaction. 2. Keeping it open is best. Without any cans. Like you were advised, reverse winding it can also be helpful, though once the process picks up it can be difficult to slow down. 3. It should be kept in conditions of less than room temperature (70 degree or less if possible) with a relative humidity of 50% or so. If it is just one film and you are absolutely keen on keeping it, get some Ziplock bags, and a can for the film. The Ziplock should be at least 3mil thick. Put the film, in the can, in the ziplock. Tape it shut with camera tape. Then put that ziplock in another 3 mil ziplock, and tape that one shut too. Then take that package and stick it in the freezer! It's the best way to stop the process where it is. If you ever need to bring it back out, put it in the refrigerator for half an hour, and then to room temperature for a few hours before opening anything to prevent ruin due to condensation.

    I have my scanning performed with MetPost in NYC.
  5. Hi, I’m looking for a PL mount Canon 8-64mm for my S16 setup. My budget is Around $3k based on recent sale prices that I’ve seen. Price adjustable based on condition and other details. I am based in NYC but will be driving down the Pacific Coast (San Francisco to San Diego) the last two weeks of August. I can do Pick up in either, or will consider shipping. Please PM me. Thank you.
  6. The Arri BL2 Kit comes in a flight case with a 400' magazine and a 1000' magazine with a leather blimp. There is a mattebox (that has seen some better days) and a lens blimp. The camera is clean. The paint is very nice and excellent compared to others that I have seen. The shutter was tested by AZ Spectrum late last year and all is well! I'm asking for $2,900. I am also open to trade for S16 glass. I have additional 400' and 1000' magazines if you are looking for more. Pickup in NYC. Shipping will be extra... it's heavy! Please send me a private message for any questions and pictures. Thank you!
  7. Thank you for sharing Helen. Happy Birthday Bill! My thoughts are with you today
  8. David, Thank you for re-linking to your blog. Indeed it seems I have been "scraping by" on the 60d Mkii haha. Your article has been helpful. From what I gather, am I to expect better performance out of my DR680? I've been using the recorder in combination with the Audix SCX1.
  9. I must be having difficult accessing the rest of the magazine. Is it all in there, or just the cover?
  10. Marcos, I also enjoyed this read. It's interesting to hear about people navigating indie filmmaking at that time. I have a feeling that it has changed A LOT. Especially with digital now being an option. I had the chance to meet Don and have him sign my copy of True Indie (He signed it "Keep those balls in the air" hehe) when he was touring his new 4k Release of Phantasm that was produced through JJ Abrams. We all have JJ to thank or this film may have only had terrible SD versions available as Don's own print was going Vinegar!
