This filmstrip presentation was prepared by my Uncle Irving Skipper. He and his wife Nila made their living producing this sort of thing. They also did animation, movies and videos, commercials, custom film processing and printing, and other commercial photography and visual arts work. Some days they would get a dozen or so rolls of 35mm slide film to process and deliver the next day and they would stay up all night getting them done. |
Since this presentation promotes hunting and fishing, many of the images show dead animals from the hunt. If you are not accustomed to seeing such things, you may be offended by them. I was raised on a farm and that was just part of life.
Film strips were a common form of audio/visual presentation during the mid-twentieth century. They were apparently easier to produce and cheaper than movies and they were easier to handle than slide shows. The frame size is normal 35mm movie size, that is, half the size of a normal 35mm still camera frame. A 36 exposure roll of 35mm film has room for 72 half-frame images. Filmstrips are easier to store than slides. Two of these 72-image filmstrips were rolled up in a plastic cannister smaller than a typical 35mm film cannister. They are cheaper to produce and, of course can't get all mixed up if dropped.
Most filmstrips had an accompanying audio recording that explained the material in the scenes. An audible click in the recording signalled the operator that it was time to advance the film to the next frame. I don't have the narration for this filmstrip, so I've just added a few comments about the Arkansas scenes and what this club may have been trying to do.
There are a total of 72 frames occupying about 1.0 megbyte of memory. I kept the display size and image quality low so that it would be practical to have 72 images on these pages. The original images are better than what you will see here. You may want to wait until all have loaded with this page before beginning the presentation. It may take several minutes to load. If you want to stop and start again later, just click the little square at the place where you stopped.
The space for this filmstrip is provided free of charge to promote Arkansas tourism.
