Super-8 Movies

Digitized Oct.-Dec. 2010

Commentary by Leonard
 (some also with Wendy)

All available on YouTube - click reel number in YouTube column - should start almost immediately with quality somewhat less than in original files.

Some available on vimeo   - slightly better quality.

The master files for Reel 4 through Reel 11 available from SSS server (sorry, not enough disc space to hold all).  This is best quality, but is not streaming, so it takes about 5 minutes before you see anything.
