8mm Film Cleaning, Storage, Etc.
I hope this is the right forum to post this in-
I have somewhere between 1200' - 2000' of 8mm Kodachrome movie film from the mid 1950s onwards. It was transferred to DVD several years ago, but it's still on individual 50' reels.
The reels are a mess, and the film is dirty & dusty. The images are otherwise absolutely gorgeous.
I'm planning on shooting some titles and splicing everything together onto a few 400' reels.
What is the best way to [safely] clean the film?
Are there any places that reels might still be available? I'm looking for 400' metal or plastic reels.
