Future Film Buff

My 3 year old loves playing with my rewinds, and is very good about following my rule that he can only use empty reels without any film on them. Last night I let him help me repair some sprocket damage, he was so proud to be working with real film on the reel!

Great work there Michael. I love seeing people like yourself and Stuart Reid for example getting their young ones interested in our equipment and films.

Stuart put on a belting photo over at film tech recently showing his youngster threading his GS!
Magical stuff this.

I'd get those rewinds wired to a dynamo Michael, think of the power the kid can generate.

Great photos there Michael.
All my children when they were small had a go at turning the rewind arms they loved it.
Now its my Grandaughters turn.
Even better they are fascinated with the film projectors when they are running.
Its good to get the kids involved.

Brilliant, I love stories like this getting the youngsters involved, my lad absolutely loved sitting watching super 8 with me in the 90's, his favourite was The Muppet Movie 400'.

I made my dad sit through an hour and half of his life once watching Memories Of Me with Billy Crystal.
Something I very much later regretted doing to him. He was asleep half hour before the end!

It was a smashing print and back then had just as good colour as my Police Academy 2 print but boy, was that one long drawn out boring film!

None of our two lads have ever wanted to watch a single thing on that "old fashioned" format called cine film sadly. Still, there's no accounting for taste is there now!

I have all my Disney and other animated beauties all lined up now and ready to go just as soon as grandkids come along. If nothing else I'm determined. Just one oh Lord...just one!

When they do eventually arrive my first mission will be to replicate that fabulous photo posted all those years back by Ignacio!

In the meantime, I have a garden party lined up at my wife's work friends house soon for the screening of Jungle Book. Her mate is already a rather youngish Nanny and her little granddaughter Esmie loves Jungle Book after seeing the recent live action movie.
When theres an opportunity, I will pounce! Ha ha ha.
Seize the moment eh. Lol.
