1974 MID-OHIO 5 HOUR CAMEL GT (SUPER 8 FILM)

This is a 1974 Super8 film of the Camel GT Race at Mid Ohio. It is a 4 minute film of the Corvette parade lap and the beginning of the race. The film was in very bad shape and required serious restoration efforts. This is the first draft of the video. I did not edit out any footage because there is so little of it and it is rare to find. The original Super8 film was silent and while acceptable in 1974, today's viewers expect more. A music sound track and race car sounds were added to provide more depth.

On the left is the picture from the film as it was captured, and would appear on the above film it it had not been fixed in "post". Note that the picture noise has been reduced, and the colors brought back to life. Once completed I added graphics and sound to enhance the viewer experience.

It took a lot of time to bring back the color in the sky.
