PLEASE HELP US SAVE THIS ROSTRUM CAMERA
This is a personal appeal to find a suitable home for this beautiful museum piece - a 35mm, animation rostrum camera - something which was the state-of-the-art technology during the era of traditional, hand-drawn cel animation. (That so many people still know and love!) It comes with one of the first ever IBM, remote control computer units, plus a 16mm film Moviola.
Please help me find a home for this sadly endangered piece of beautifully engineered technology - primarily by sharing this link with anyone who you think might be interested.
I thank you for your help! The following video will give you more information...
This rostrum camera requires a 12ft high ceiling height above it, as well as a solid base floor (concrete or reinforced floorboards) beneath it. Currently it is stored in Seattle, WA. It is available to anyone who can give a safe and protected resting place - hopefully enabling future generations of animators, fans and/or filmmakers to view it, in all it's splendor.
