From: Patent Tactics, George Brock-NannestadJack Honeycutt asked about a good forum for real film strips. I could suggest AMIA, which is more directed to professional archivists, but it is my experience that in collecting audiovisual items it is frequently the amateurs who are the professionals. They can afford the time to dig deeply into the material ................On 9 mm films: they are French Pathé narrow gauge films sometimes called Pathé Baby. They were quite popular with amateurs, also in the UK, and their characteristic was that they only had one sprocket hole per image, right in the middle of the film between images. The equipment ranged from very fine to tinplate, but it all worked very well. To those who used it it was not odd at all.Kind regards,George> Hi folks....> > I know this is a tad off topic, but I was wondering if anyone here > could refer me to a good motion picture film forum?
