Awaiting 16mm WWII gun camera footage to HD transfer
Recently I was lent a reel of 16mm film that was owned by one of the men from the 355th Fighter Squad. It has about 15 minutes of gun camera footage and about 10 minutes of men around the base. He shot this footage!
His name was Ralph Van Cleave. His widow let me borrow the film to make the professional transfer.
I should be getting the transfer back today from Fotokem (a professional post production house in Burbank, CA.). I am curious to see if I will be able to recognize any of the men I have interviewed!
