I actually finally found a mannequin. I have been looking forever for a price within my budget and this was well under.
Mostly this was a successful day for my teen daughter. She is really interested in 8mm filming and we found a really nice gentleman through Freecycle who had this Editing machine and a few random old films of unknown families.
While most of the films were from the 50s and 60s, including some that were shot here in Albuquerque, the oldest film he had was probably from the 30s/40s? (not too sure about film history here) and it was in black and white. Here is a still shot from it of one of the little girls in the family film.
My daughter found this great old projector practically in mint condition and it was well within her budget. I don't think it had ever been used it was that pristine.
The man we visited that had the Editor also found these movies of Willie Mouse and JFK so we spent last night watching silent 8mm films.
He also gave her this Brownie camera, case and lenses that were his parents'. He only asked that she dedicated her films to him when she becomes a big movie maker lol.
What will you create today?
