Super 8 can be run in sync' with VHS, Laser Disc and DVD giving the best sound available to the home market combined with the best picture quality on 8mm. Most recent addition is the Liesegang video projector which does give an outstanding image dependent on the quality of the source material. The NTSC laser disc of "The Sea Hawk" in particular looks exceptionally good.
DAVID LOCKE'S HOME CINEMA A former co-organizer of the BFCC who boasts an outstanding home setup. Our photographs did not turn out exceptionally well but we hope it gives an impression of the standard that has been achieved. Again, video projection and film live side by side.
JOHN BIRD'S REELS ON WHEELS John Bird has been involved with the BFCC's for many years now. His speciality is cinema evenings at sheltered homes for which he is inundated with requests and is certainly kept busy. Recently video projection (via the SIM2 DLP) has been added to the super 8 and 16mm shows. Here are some pictures from one of his more recent shows.
