Yeah, the machine is a distant goal of mine too. I actually have one that I inherited however it's not in working order & will need a lot to bring it back.

Good to hear there's people out there still shooting 16mm & 8mm though. Given that the whole industrial model of film production is collapsing, I kind of think (and hope) that its survival is largely dependent on decentralising and scaling down the whole thing.
I don't know. Can film survive without the industrial/mechanical model? I like to think it can. Wonder what others think.
