The equipment's been sold off. I heard the optical printer went to a private
individual, who I don't know (or remember the name of), but perhaps he will
share. Other equipment went to schools that still do film and private buyers
and then everything else (in mixed shape) was up for sale over the course of
a week... I would have picked up more if I hadn't been broke. It would have
been nice if a small group was able to make a little co-op out of things,
but again, a lot of the equipment was very "well-used".
