you could store the pixes in YUV-format, which will double the amount of 
images you can store in a given memory (the default is RGBA)
(either send the [colorspace YUV( to the [pix_film] or use [pix_yuv] 
just before the [pix_buffer_write])

if you think that the bottleneck is the harddisk access, you could also 
try to read the film from a RAM-disk (if such a thing exists on w32)
