Recans and short ends, where to buy??

Post by Tyler » Thu Dec 06, 2012 5:49 pm

I'm will be shooting a short film next month using my super 16mm camera and am trying to keep cost down as much as possible.

Does anyone know a good place to purchase 16mm recans or short ends?

16mm recans and short ends are in very short supply.

I have found this guy who has good prices on fresh stock, Fuji and Kodak. He also has access to recans & short ends if they are available. I needed 1600 feet of Vision 3 50D and he got it to me next day for less than Kodak. Stock was absolutely perfect.

Guessing he won't mind me posting is info.

From Richard:
If you need 35mm, we can supply you 35mm film stock for .36 to .39 cents per foot depending on the stock.
If you need 16mm, we can supply you with 16mm film stock for .24 to .28 cents per foot.
