Great news David! A roll of roofing felt and a few batons, and you're there!! 😊😊😊
Hugh I cant possibly take them all with me.
Some of them are showing signs of buckle and colour fading. So not worth saving i have
I have now found some "odd reel" parts from E.T. stored away also hundreds of trailers
and advert tags.
The trouble is the clock is now ticking against me and i really don't have much time left
to sort it all out as i have other items such as Hi-Fi equipment , cassette tapes, books and
magazines to clear out too.
I am now at that moment where i wish i never collected so much stuff over the past 45 years.
David,you must have a real problem,but you are now I feel putting into perspective what most of know deep down know
......."we have a problem..."great fun and totally engrossing and an enjoyable sometimes expensive hobby,but come the time what the hell do you do with it all.
I think we touched on the subject before,and personally I know how you feel I keep finding this and that bought and forgotten and no one wants it or its gone "bad".good luck sorting maybe this is a lesson for us all.
"Hell No Must Collect"
I have got to say, I'd have gotten permission from whom ever owned nearby land, I'd have put the films in plastic sacks, including
any projectors, until proper shelter, even a Dutch Barn routine, we should never junk film, unless it's nitrate and far gone. A sad time, and I'll say it, a fucking tragedy David, surely your movies deserved better than this. Correct me, but how many prints are we speaking of, I "see" film as 16mm, but you lads in 35mm, it is a very different ball game in volume, I'm thinking a big garden shed, would it have
accommodated these films?
