Sounds great – good luck with the series. Are these all 35mm film or a mix of film and video?

No Peter, only 3 are 35mm. The people in charge have asked me to try and hook them up with people (like you) who have the contact for getting all films. Right now they deal with Swank, and we know how their prints are. I suggested to them that we visit the Lafayette and Loews Jersey in an attempt to help us out. Believe me when I was there the past 2 days with the DVD’s it breaks my heart not to be running the Simplex XL’s sitting in the booth.
