1. Shot by my grandfather on his Bell & Howell Filmo using 16mm Kodachrome film stock. This footage was taken a year after the California theme park opened.

    It was quite a surprise going through this and seeing my grandmother meeting Walt Disney himself! I've been doing my best to find out what they were shooting at the front of the park. So far I've been unsuccessful.

    Transferred to HD (1080PsF 23.98) myself off a Spirit and Color Corrected using a da Vinci 2k Plus. Slowed to 18fps to match the original film speed.

  2. The previous film had such a positive response that I felt compelled to post the rest.

    In these short clips you see more of an interaction between my grandparents. As someone who never really knew his grandfather; these reels of film have really let me feel related to him and the rest of my family, too.

    Thank you to all the positive comments and support!

  3. While digitizing my grandfather's 16mm films, I came across this Disneyland footage (which I believe is from the summer of 1961). This video features my mother in the green dress and red shoes, and my uncle in the brown and white shirt.
