Thus a very simple aproach to the matter is to coat "a" film and then make many different products out of it. In this context Super8 and 16mm are contributing formats.
    We have also bought and refurbished machines to make Super8, Normal8 and 16mm film but the question is if we can bring a final product at competitive prices to the market. So apart from the pure capability of making it we are at present debating about production costs.

    To you the price of a roll of moovie film might seem high but from a manufacturers standpoint such film is sold quite cheap :-)

    Mirko I'll be interested in 16mm movie film (double perf). Until it becomes available I will keep buying your paper and other films from fotoimpex.

    Brilliant to read what you guys are up to.

    I've got a vintage Bolex that needs to be fed!

    At this point in time, I have a lot of other irons in the fire, photographic, budgetary and otherwise, but the avilability of more 16mm film would do a lot to move that project up the priorities list.

    As far as movie stock, that could be interesting, Kodak still makes 16mm Double perf stock but there are minimum orders required. "International Film" does stock it, as well as re-spooling regular 8 on the correct spools. Perhaps he would be interested in working with you. For regular 8 and super 8 edge numbers are not an issue, in 16mm I am not sure how many folks are doing strictly digital editing and would need the KeyCode bar codes. the older stinbeck style editing can still work with the mechanically created numbers.

    Most of the movie stock sold today in 16mm are single perf. _ one money making idea might be to slit and perf regalr 8 from someone else's movie stock. of course for maximum efficency you would have to find a maker willing to sell it to you unperfed so you could do the old 32-35 thing.

    My guess is the cost of converting to KeyCode, as well as cheapskates like me diverting 35mm Negative to their still cameras is what discouraged Ilford from reintroducing movie stock after they re-organized.

    If only CHS Art Series could be done again using this machine, would be so great
