who "cans"

Recommended Posts


Not a bad price for loading rolls or scratch tests, actually, if it goes no higher. I charge £25 for  400' of 16mm. junk processed neg.

Great fun though.

I worked as loader years ago and the rushes were being sent internationally to the US.. we learnt that we had to reshoot some stuff, as some poor intern had been opening up the cans, taking the film out of the bag, looking for report sheets in each can !!!

Yeah I mean I wasn't there.. but I felt a bit sorry for this intern who was sacked.. because maybe she just hadn't been told what to do.. maybe even some other fool said get the reports out of the cans.. who knows .. moral of the story.. although I still see it happening.. people handling rushes shouldn't be interns, the 4th assistant director.. or just given to the lowest paid person on set to deal with.. because its boring and easy !!

I contacted the seller on eBay to let them know the situation. I did't get a reply, but they were all gone the next day.

They probably got more than a few people sending them the bad news.
