STK-ID 76833

FI12796.018 FLICKER 2A This is a negative of FLICKER TEST #1. Theoretically, this will be negative of the material in can FI12796.017. But there is no guarantee that they are identical. McLaren’s practice when making his flicker film was to have prints struck from negative and cut those. To get any understanding it would be necessary to compare the negative edge codes with those on prints. But there is no reason to do so since the film will never be released in any other form than exists in the McLaren Master’s Edition. Flicker patterns as follows: 1+1, 1+2, 2+1, 1+3, 2+2, 3+1, 1+4, 2+3 1+4, 2+3, 3+2, 4+1, 12+18, 1+5, 2+4, 3+3, 4+2, 5+1, 1+7, 3+5, 5+3, 7+1.
