Precarious Restoration (June 2011)

June 15th, 2011

Restoration of 16mm and super 8mm film with scotch tape haphazardly in order to transfer it to a digital format.

Due to the heavy damage (distortion of the film strips and sprocket holes) the film can barely run through the projector, often catching in the gate and/or wobbling to such an extent that the image cannot reach focus.

Therefore the film is wound tightly onto the reels and left for a month (in order to straighten) before another transfer is attempted.

Go to the following stage: Experimental Film Transfer.
