Way back in the late 1960s and early 1970s I got smitten with the movie bug and experimented with the idea of making travel productions for use on cable TV. This never really panned out, and the results have been sitting in a closet ever since. Until now. Two weeks ago, feeling a bit flush, I took one reel of about 250 feet to the local chain drugstore to be scanned and converted to DVD format for viewing on a TV or computer. The total cost was about $50, and well worth the joy of once again reliving a fun trip we made in 1970 to do fashion photos in Jamaica for McCall's Magazine. Here are some still capture frames that are not very sharp, but fun anyway.
The above frames depict fashion designer Giorgio di Sant' Angelo with models Zaki and Pia; the three on a donkey cart being photographed by my partner, Jim Houghton; Jamaican tourist official Marcia Robinson on a donkey; and photographer Jim Houghton.
And here is a very short excerpt from the video. It looks pretty awful, but we had fun that week:
CLICK the left button to start the show. The center slider adjusts volume. For full screen size, as soon as the first image appears, right-click on it, then on Zoom, then on Full Screen. NOTE that the full, 12-minute DVD, when viewed on a TV set, is MUCH sharper than what you see here.
