Surplus electronic parts :
Stock and Crypto AI Prediction :

This film is undated, and the generic print stock has lost virtually all of the blue layer, so even after much post production color processing this is as good as it gets. Definitely a trip back to high school in this one! The bell bottoms say 1972, but the hair says 1981 - So your guess is as good as mine. This reel was transferred from my own 16mm archive print using my Eiki Telecine. The Eiki has a 5 Blade Shutter that projects a 24fps print at 30 frames per second for a flickerless NTSC transfer. A special diffusion plate eliminates the 'hot spot' of the projector, and the sound is pulled right from the optical track. Enjoy!

    Isn't that the star wars rebel logo on the girls cloths? late 70s early 80s

    Thank You for uploading this Fran!

    Love watching these.

    It was nice to see Fischer-Technik featured, rather than LEGO's! They were definitely the better platform for engineering models, facing no competition that I'm aware of, prior to the introduction of LEGO Technic.

    This incredible footage just keeps coming!
    I can't help but think all this stuff should be on it's own dedicated channel, FransArchive or something.

    I wonder about the equipment behind Patty – especially the scopes. Any clue?

    I kept expecting an adult voice to break in: "Waw waw waw waw…"!

    There are multiple opportunities present to improve the color rendering.

    First, a color "field flattening" operation should help remove the consistent color warp effects on every frame, most noticeable around the edges and horizontally. Reference black and white frames are synthesized that are then used to remove spectral shifts at each pixel, independent of content.

    Second, there are multiple objects in various frames that should have well-defined spectra: The o'scope phosphor, the heater elements, etc. Manufactured items such as the batteries used may have archival color references. Enough of these, with enough points across the rendered color spectrum, should permit much improved color recovery.

    Third, rapid motion in this film exhibits color separation, meaning at least one stage of the capture-to-print process was done using field-sequential media. This makes me believe the film itself is a print from a video source created from a color-sequential video camera, a technique used back in the day to directly map video subframes to film layers.
