I have been encouraged by the interest in my archival DVDs on the WSLC AND SPNG to consider another release. I am interested in procurement of raw 8mm or 16 mm home move film, VHS copies, or digitally converted DVDs thereof of the following:
1-West Side mill and logging operations ,especially mill interior and steam power plant .
2-Feather River Lumber Co.
3-Pickering Lumber Co,
4-McCloud Lumber Co.
5-Long-Bell Lbr. Co.-Weed CA
6-The Pacific Lumber Co-Scotia CA
7-Union Lbr Co/Georgia Pacific Lbr.Co-Fort Bragg CA
8-Sierra Ry-especially engine No.38
9-Santa Cruz Lumber Co
10-Tonopah and Tidewater Ry.
11.V & T Ry
I am willing to work with anyone that will release their material for general archival study via
DVD . Reasonable compensation offered.
Keep in mind :
(a) Old movies are in state of deterioration ,especially if not stored properly. They just fade away in time (especially color film).
(b) Current digitization processes will not harm the movie master .A good lab will carefully clean the film and project it normally and copy on a digital camera. From there the raw film is rewound and placed in storage and returned to owner and the digital data is processed from that point on. In some cases the the color balance can be restored.
(c) Home movies can be edited for content with out damage to raw film .I am a "bottom feeder" .I am not worried about film that is not professionally shot ,I can use nearly anything with proper exposure and is reasonably sharp and steady. Color and B/W film ok
