Renting Hollywood DVD's or lending them

Yeah so I'm a PA who actually edits, but that way I only get paid PA wages, but I'd love to get my hands on the Hollywood Camera Work DVD's. Does anyone know where they can be rented or willing to rent/loan them? Errrr I know it's risky cause the whole internet, but I've been around for a while, and I'd be willing to trade something in the meantime... Or something of equal value in your eyes.

Oh yeah the whole PA point was to show that I can't afford to buy anything else right now.

I tried this approach a few times (minus sob story) and never had any luck. They do pop up on eBay, and I just bought a set. I expect to watch them and then resell at almost no net cost. (I have done this with lots of other things, you just have to be disciplined about how much you pay).

I'm looking to pick up a used copy of these DVDs. Anyone have a set they'd sell to me?

Yeah I'm definitely interested. It'd probably work better to buy them from you afterwards? I'm guessing for the sake of less confusion.

Can you believe that less then an hour after I posted that someone bid a "buy now" on it? It's got to be someone from this site!!!! Anyways send me your email fred and we'll keep a look out for it. I found a site selling it for only $280 new. Maybe if we find one other person to buy in the three of us could do that.

Anyone interested in a copy?

Just buy it. Last couple of weeks, going price for a used set on eBay is about $300, but they sell for less sometimes. Must be Christmas demand. I have seen them sell as low as $180, but that was ususual too. Usually less than $200 is a scam. So buy it for $280 and sell it for $250. when you are done. This is an easy one, since demand is so high on eBay. You might even sell it for $300 if you are lucky.
