That movement is very expensive to convert, the cost would be several thousand dollars for the movement alone. I was quoted $5k for the job on a moviecam years ago and that was back the parts existed. Andree Martin is the only person who could do it these days, but the savings you make by shooting 2 perf isn't really made up by the exorbitant amount of money put into the movement. Now a 3 perf conversion, that's doable and Andree may have the parts still.
