I just looked at the Material Concepts website and I see what you mean, thanks for letting me know. Their website has changed, so many choices. I still have BLACK Tyvek on the roll but there is no identifying information on it. The roll is 36” X 50 feet. I will call them tomorrow and hopefully they have a record of what I have purchased. I will be back in touch!

Chris, when I buy the white Tyvek from Uline . I get a 24" X 150' roll. 7.5 mil, Type 10 G. I call their toll free number and talk to a real human! I always order over the phone. Let me look at the Material Concepts website and I will answer that in the next post.

Hi Sue,
Thanks again for your fabulous resources here.
I'm wondering if you could share the type (or types) of Tyvek that you use - type, size, etc. I've gone to the Material Concepts website, and there seems to be a dizzying array of choices.
The Tyvek and Typar housewrap that I've seen online here in Canada both seem to have big product-name lettering and logos on them, which I don't think is what I'm after...

TO BOSCO JIM PETER:
Ahh, yes! Pickett’s Charge, a crankie masterpiece. Katherine Fahey did the artwork on that. Things I learned from watching was the artful way she transitions between scenes. Also the use of colored backlighting to add color to some of the scenes. The music gorgeous as well. I think I will watch it again today. Take good care!

TO JAN PETER BERGKVIST:
Thank you for sending the picture and letting me know about this. I am going to send the picture to some of my moving panorama friends to see if they know. I will be back in touch. Also, if it is crankable (not too fragile) and if you make a video and if you want to share, I would love to add it to the website.

TO DONNA MELCHER:
Hi Donna! Black Tyvek comes on a roll. I purchase mine online from Material Concepts. I wonder if that is was you are seeing? Also, Sue Sellow used black Pellon interfacing and embroidered on that. Or, black Eco-Fi felt is another option. Which crankie are you referring to, or who was the crankist?

TO CHRISTOPHER HUNT: I am glad you are enjoying the website and I hope you make a crankie!!
I have not made a “hands-free” crankie but Charmaine Slaven in Seattle from The Tallboys has. She used the gears and crank from a hand drill. She attached a pedal to that and would strap her foot to the pedal! I need to ask her to send some pictures to me. I will see if she can send and I will forward. Here is a photo.

TO SUE THOMAS IN SCOTLAND: My apologies for the slow reply. Your website is beautiful and I am glad you are making a crankie!
I do not have a formula for the length. It depends if you are stopping on each scene or continuously cranking or a combination of both. For me, having an 18” high scroll 3.5 minutes would be between 30-50 feet long scroll. For now, just keep going till it’s done! Send a photo and good luck!!
