8 Millimeter Movies
~ 1953 through 1980 ~

My father bought a movie camera in 1953 to document the wedding of Jeanne and Don. This camera was used by my dad and Don thoughout the 1950s and 1960s. Several movie reels were transfered to DVD around 2000. These 61 video clips are taken from DVDs and background music was added.

Black & White Video
~ 1982 through 1984 ~

In 1982 I bought a second-hand black & white video camera. I took videos with it in Eugene, Oregon, until I bought by color video camera in Korea in 1984. These fifteen videos were transfered to cassette, then to DVD in 2016.

Video Camera
~ 1984 through 1994 ~

I was a bigtime videographer from the time I bought my expensive camera in Korea in 1994 through 4 years at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, then a few more years in California. By the mid-90s the technology was old and the camera was faling apart. For several years there were no movies.
