|From Film to Video
Most of the original prints of the original footage
of the Pogles and Pogles' Wood survives today but is of varying quality.
It would be highly desirable to convert all of the old footage onto high
quality video tape.
Encoding film to video
|There are only a few places
that have the equipment to do this, they tend to be television and film
companies AND they tend to charge rather a lot of money. The key
problem is that whether the film is usable or not, it still takes time and
money to find this out. If there is anyone out there who could
assist the Dragons Friendly Society to sort through the rusty film cans
then please get in touch. A day and a lot of money has been spent in
sifting through old film without producing a single episode on video.
|First the 16mm Film is cued
up on the encoder
Next a corresponding 16mm print of the optical sound
must be lined up on a separate machine in synchronisation with the Film.
