I just happened across this youtube video of mine that I'd forgotten about. I'm sure I posted about it here way back when but that post is probably long gone so here's a refresh.


This is a 16mm classroom film I bought of ebay probably 15 or 20 years ago. My transfer to video leaves quite a bit to be desired but you can get the general idea. It's a history of percussion instruments for school kids and it has Shelly Manne too! I probably should look into having it professionally converted to video and color corrected but I doubt it would be cheap.

Enjoy.

I think this was up on yt before.
As far as conversion goes, I'm no expert, but I see some stroboscope effect, so it might just be something about the frame rate is off.

It's been on youtube all these years, I just forgot about it and thought it might be worth bringing it back to the attention of anyone interested.

This is literally a video of the movie as projected onto a screen. The frame rates of the two formats are not the same which causes the flicker. As you watch it the flicker comes and goes as the frame rates align and the diverge repeatedly. A proper film chain like TV stations use addresses this problem and removes the flicker but I don't have access to such equipment. Also, like many older films, the blue pigment has faded which shifts the colors all towards the pink/red side of the spectrum.
Overall though you can get the jist of it despite the presentation flaws.
