A smorgasbord of nitrate film. Many of the film cans appear from that era. Get a mask and gloves on and have at it.

Damp looking room though.

Hope the gold mine results in some rare finds.

A mess really and it does not look like to much is salvageable here. I have been in a country shop, early 2003 three times looking at loads of nitrate & acetate 35mm. There was loads of 16mm including a handful of early Australian TV shows with mag stripe audio not otherwise in existence elsewhere. Nobody really wanted the 35mm material and a projector repair man who ran a collector's magazine paid a pittance to take it all away. I got the Australian stuff to the archives including a 35mm nitrate from c1933 in A-1 condition that had different graphics in the titles and some scenes than the archive's copy. The many 16mm projectors there were all US(unserviceable). The property was in very hot country town which is not the right place for laying around 35mm nitrate. One of the 16mm films was Song of the South. The deceased was a projectionist, at one time at two suburban theatres near his home of which the buildings are still there.

Two of the TV half hours had an American musical comedy performer who was Annie in Annie Get Your Gun in Australia and remained here. Her husband was Will Mahoney(She's My Lily was his theme and did that in an Educational 15mins early 1930s short and was in the stage show in LA with Grand Hotel, 1932 of which a 60 secs ad is included in the DVD extras of Grand Hotel). Often during archive drives for lost Australian silent brings news that a fire has happened or the fire department has called at the farmhouse shed and demanded their destruction and thus goes the work on one acclaimed Australian silent director. Funnily enough some rare bits and pieces of 30s MGM items have been found in Australia like the Charley Chase color short soundtrack and a missing Three Stooges(Hey Pop) and Tiffany's Mamba. Some footage of Metropolis was said to have found in Australia(Olympic Games sequence) but I doubt. I heard this in the mid-1970s at a film institute I went to almost daily. We can always hope for a miracle, though.

I tried to contact the posters of the video & photos. But no luck.

If there's one thing about these Urban Explorers, it's their fanatical "see don't touch" dogma. Don't get me wrong vandalism is a pathetic and sad act. But on the other side there's the guys who would, if they came across a lost Van Gogh in an abandoned building, would leave it there because they swore an oath never to take anything.

These pictures are from the Bendestorf studios in Germany. Filmproduction there started after WW2 (until about 1991) so no silent films here. These prints are supposed to be mostly softcore porn from the 60s and 70s (maybe there is some late 40s nitrate from the early days of the studio). There was a documentary about these studios some time ago on German television; they also showed some poorly stored film that was still there. Obviously the studios are now being torn down.
Here's a German article about it:
