Hi frameworkers,

I'm looking to borrow a 1000ft split reel from someone in the 5 boroughs
of NY for a few days this week. Or buy one if anyone has one up for
sale. Please contact me off-list if you've got any suggestions.

I've also got an experimental film 101 question from a non-frameworker,
who would like to scratch into black leader and project it as a loop.
Does anyone have tips for getting some black leader in NY? And the ideal
length for a continuous film loop and how loose or taught it should be?

many thanks,
