now I forget... someone mentioned the benefits of 8mm Bolex
and I kept thinking I'd hear more here (please)

I've been thinking of taking a 16mm film course (at NW Film
Center), primarily because it includes the equipment, but
given my entrenched and different approach to
moving-pictures, perhaps I'm better off foraging ahead on my


so, what are the preferred models/costs to look for on eBay?
and approximately what does b&w film stock/processing cost?
is this regular 8 or super? and I guess I need a
projector/screen recommendation too please... I have this
idea for a roadside (literally) film festival...
