From the vaults of Colony Productions
Here's a sample of what Race Day 1967 was like ... These 2 1/4 negatives were discovered carefully tucked away in an archival box. Really tucked away because I didn't even realize they were still in existence! They give us an impression of what is on the film footage.
Yep, film footage, that's what started the hunting around for the Skipjack work, an unopened can of 16mm original Ektachrome! It's about fifty minutes of footage.
And yes I do remember shooting the footage. It was only a few months prior to the beginning of Colony Productions and Studios, Inc. I was just finished working in television with plans on my mind for the future. But that's another story.
What's important here is the footage and getting it preserved. It needs to be transferred to digital to protect it. We have a facility in mind with state of the art equipment and most importantly a great colorist that I've worked with over the years for top notch commercial work.
And you guessed it, it
will take some dollars. Can you help? Money, ideas, plots
to get this wonderful footage in a form that it can educate
and delight all the folks who care about these wonderful vessels are all
