Hey Ryan,
Pretty sure it was a flaw in processing. I have never had that happen with
16mm or a Bolex, but when I was shooting a lot of super 8, it happened to a
batch of carts processed at a lab I won't mention because everything else
they have developed for me was great. I called and talked to them about it,
and they basically admitted that the "blue line" can happen from a flaw in
the lab. I'm not sure what does it? Seems like something must be touching
the film during a run through the chemicals??
