Wtb Birthday Feature

#1 by Alexander Alfonsson ( deleted ) , Wed Mar 23, 2016 9:57 pm

So as I said in my happy birthday thread (thanks for that Vidar :) I think I am ready to buy my first Super 8 feature. I was going to look at the different vendors listed in the thread on here but I thought I could ask you guys if you happen to have anything you wanna get rid of. I am not really sure what I am looking for except it should be a full feature on Super 8 ( regular 8 works to if it's a silent film) and I would like to keep the price around 100 euros or lower. Might go higher for a really good flick. Anyone feel free to add me on Facebook btw if you prefer talking there.

I am gonna finish my Birthday Whisky I got from my girlfriend now. Good night everyone.

What kind of films interest you Alexander and what is your spool capacity on your machines?

At your price point, you may have to accept a slightly faded print or a b/w feature and perhaps an older title that there are plenty of.
If you find LPP at this price point, it typically would have some wear and other defects unfortunately.

I am pretty wide in my filmtaste. But I particularly enjoy old horror films 1920-1960 and also adventure films and thrillers from that era. All sorts of animation new and old. Black and white certainly isn't an issue neither is silent films. Japanese cinema is a favourite as well especially Godzilla and other Kaiyu. I have a Sankyo 700 projector so my spool capacity is "600 and I think it's "400 on my standard 8 projectors.

Before you launch into ebay Alex, have a look at what the dealers have to offer, chances are there will be some enticing stuff, no doubt
a bit better than the lottery that can be ebay, just a thought.

Hugh is spot on here given your tastes in films Alexander. Often dealers such as Barry or Phil can cater for these type of films at much more sensible price points than e bay will.

It's only the newer most desirable titles on top film stock that you tend to have to buy either privately through a forum or on e bay.

So I have now looked through all the dealers mentioned on here but unfortunately haven't really found anything that was interesting enough. Almost every movie I want is a 3x400" or 4x400". Or a standard 8 sound print. But both my standard 8 projectors are silent.

Yeah I checked I only found a few that where actually full features most where more or less condensed versions. I am still considering Macbeth though even if it is only 2/3 of the movie. Because a 400" super 8 reel is about 15 minutes right?

I really did like his sight though. He seems to be the only one with a legitimate webshop.

I meant like an actual webshop with add your stuff to your basket, checkout and pay. I realize it sounded like a did'nt think the others where any good that was not what I meant.

400' is usually 17-18 minutes. I think you can get 20, but I hate full reels


sais Thank You!

Just realized I could'nt see the lists on Classichomecinema when using my phone earlier. They had some nice 16mm features so I might pick one of those up instead. :)

If you want the complete Macbeth you must look for the 6x400 version, which is rare. I have been looking for it for years,with no success so far!

The only other site I know of that operates with a checkout that sells a few films also Alexander, is Van Eck.

Alexander! Are you aware, that complete 16mm features often sells for appx 20-30 £, on scandinavian meets ( Scandinavian subtitles) 35 mm even cheaper. I recently bougt 8 Disney shorts on 35mm in good condition for £10 each. .
