New user: Hello!

#1 by Andrew Paul ( deleted ) , Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:25 pm

Hi, I couldn't find an introductions thread, so i thought I'd start my own.

I'm Andrew, I'm 44 years old and I live in Lancashire, England. I'm pretty much a beginner with film, although I was the subject of many of my mother's home movies as a child :) .

My current interest comes from my regular movie night, where a few friends come over for a beer and a few films. We like the ridiculous, weird and downright terrible, anything a little offbeat and away from mainstream Hollywood. Until recently, these were all in some digital format or other, but I've now added a super 8 projector to our mix so we can start the evening with some cartoons or a couple of short movie digests. So far it's been great fun!

I have a terrible tendency to hoard things, but I've decided against becoming too much of a film collector. My intention is buy a film, watch it, then sell it on, preferably without making too much of a loss, - or just to swap with other people.

I'm looking forward to joining the discussions here and hope I can learn a few things too.

Thanks for your intro, you are close to film convention in the end of the year then? In Blackpool, you should try that, great convention. Wish my health was better, would love to go

Hope you get the bug properly ;-) I am selling off shortly, much of the digital collection, want films mainly now

Thanks. I'm in Preston, so not far from Blackpool at all. It certainly sounds like something to look forward to.

Hi Andrew, and welcome to the forum. We are all pretty obsessed with film here! ;-) I'm not sure how willing some collectors are to trade off their acquisitions, but you never know! I can only speak for myself. Once I've acquired a sought after title, it's hard to let it go! :-)

Things go slow here, not too much energy

Duplicates in film, you mean Vidar?! You're making me curious! :-)

Welcome to the forum! It is very nice to see a new face. Super 8 is really something else than watching something digital. It is hard to let go once you've tried it :-) Looking forward to see what you and your friends end up watching.

Several of my films in my collections are duplicates bought from Vidar. Got me a nice start when I was new. Among them are my favorite digest: Pinch Cliff Grand Prix!
