For over a year I was collecting 35mm short ends in Europe and the US, because we couldn’t afford to buy new film stock. Although my stock was two years expired, for me shooting on film was essential. Most of the short ends we purchased for a very low price came from Ridley Scott’s production of Child 44 that was shot in Prague some years before. Other short ends were given to me in the US. That meant whoever from my family and friends traveled to NY had to carry an extra suitcase, pick up cans with old film and bring them back to Prague, where the movie was shot.
