Speed Mill No Dogs Fireworks, the morning after Pinhole Rose 5-minutes-28-seconds Psychedelic Spaghetti 

You Will Need...

  • A matchbox ! (standard matchboxes are usually just the right width for 35mm film)
  • A new roll of 35mm film.  Any type will do, but normal colour print film 100 or 200 speed works very well
  • An empty roll of 35mm film with at least 1cm stub of film sticking out.  Ask at your local photo labs, they normally throw away/recycle these.
  • Some thin cardboard (the box the new film comes in is fine)
  • An empty aluminium drinks can
  • Black PVC electricians tape
  • The plastic from a spiral binder, or any small piece of thin, curved plastic
  • A fine sewing needle or pin
  • Scissors
  • A sharp craft knife
  • A black marker pen


 Got everything? Good. Time to start building !
