Re: FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

Yes Dave, you’re right, quite right. I do understand that the committee is very busy and have a lot to do, and as you say Dave, they are having to run BIAFF themselves this year, and with the judging weekend coming up, they have their work cut out. And, as you say Dave, they are also involved in the...

Re: FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

The subject of the outdated FVM magazine was started three weeks ago on Saturday 19th January 2019. Now, three weeks later, the same people who always write on the forum anyway, are the only ones who’ve replied, made any comments, or responded. However, nearly all of them, I notice, also write or ha...

FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

I have been reading the IAC ‘Film & Video Maker’ for about ten years now. The first issue I can remember was dated December 2009. In ‘The Chairman’s Chat’ on page 5 of the February 2019 issue, on paragraph two, it states that, ‘He (Garth Hope) has moved into the modern magazine era and made a produc...

Re: FVM MAGAZINE - DECEMBER 2014

Nearly four years on, and nothing has changed. If you're really concerned about the end of BIAFF and the end of the IAC, and you are concerned about the lack of new members, and more importantly wondering why very few members under the age of forty are not joining us, and the fact that very few youn...

Re: 8mm film scanners

Dear Roy1,

I forgot to mention, but you'll see it when you read it.

The Widescreen Centre is selling off their film transfer equipment,
so might well be interested in buying it from them.

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

I am more interested to discover why you are always
the first to know your results of this competition.

Do you have a secret way of finding out before everyone else?

Re: Editor/viewer lamp

Of course, you couldn't always try plugging in your editor/viewer,
and then switching it on.

That might help.

Re: Standard 8 and Super 8 Splicing

Sorry about my mistake.

I wrote it before I woke up this morning.

What I meant to say was:

And if you're not happy with cement, I'd recommend a Fuji tape splicer which uses perforated tape to fit Super 8.
But I don't think they make a tape splicer for Standard 8mm.
