//stack of vintage film reels.
While working late into the evening, Steph and I screened stacks of 8mm home movie reels we picked up at a content sale recently. Almost unbelievably, the oldest ones date back to the 1930's, are predominantly filmed on colour kodachrome and were edited together with much brilliance by the filmmaker. One moment we were in Florida watching friends in high pants and short ties smoke pipes and the next we were celebrating Christmas in Toronto while Peter Witt TTC trolleys coasted along the street.
Slides that we found alongside the reels will definitely wind up posted to my other blog, Not My Father's Slides soon. I'm thinking a YouTube channel may have to be set up in the future if I can digitize these films -- or at least set up my markII to record the projection decently.
