Dexter Fong: and it's ALIVE!!
CS: dont blow us up
shoes for the dead: pull up a sanitary pedestal, Max
Merlyn: If your films are taking on a rather pinkish look then you should get them transferred to DVD now. Depending on how bad they are you can usually adjust the colour to compensate for the pink tinge in the mid to dark tones of the film but the highlights will already be turning clear and are unrecoverable. As time goes by this progressively gets worse until it cannot be recovered.
SidFudd: Merlyn - we can certainly massage the footage, yes. I'm working with a brilliant Negativland collaborator named Tim Maloney and we've got great video tools & can try various fixes
