Part 1 of a video collection I edited together for my Dad's 60th. Sourced from old 8mm film of varying quality and condition. Took a great deal of time to scan the originals, convert into a format that FCP would play nice, then convert again in a format that Vimeo would play nice with.
Most of these shots are from the Queensland coast of Australia circa 1973-5. Dad used to bore us with these videos on an old noisy projector when we were little, but watching them now puts a ball in my throat. To see your parents when they were young and free and just two people in love. It is a special thing. It is a side that is all to easy to forget when all your own memories are of being a family.
