I went to Chelford and picked up a sack of sunflower hearts , back to our old supplier, bit far to go to Ellesmere Port pet superstore just for that. They had some Christmas tree lights and we've just found the timer and set them to an acceptable pattern, at least I won't frighten myself in the middle of the night wandering what the flashing lights are. There were a few calls mostly rubbish stuff and although another 3 films to post the DVD side has gone quiet today. Mandy is cleaning the house as the cleaners are here tomorrow, don't ask! I've made a start on the Standard8 cine films, a bit of a mixed bag, some nice shots in Calcutta including buses and trams in 1964 and a trip to Norway in 1965 with amateur standard 8 film at its very best in all respects, a bit like the old Hi8 or Mini dv at best is almost rivalled HD. There are of course a few relatively duff ones which I'll be happy to give the low down on as I sell them, a bit of honesty seems to work and doesn't really inhibit sales.
A quick link to a clip from the shots at Liverpool docks yesterday and tomorrow we take the van in to the VW centre at Trafford Park in Manchester where we hope the weather is suitable to allow filming of the lorries there. The clip didn't upload Youtube are having lots of problems this week anyway loading again fingers crossed.
