hi fellow frameworkers

I'm currently researching a title from the early 1970s that was produced on open-reel b/w video and then transferred to 16mm for exhibition and distribution.

It strikes me that this was an unusual practice. It was a smart thing to do in the sense that it allowed community groups, teachers, activists (the audience) to see the piece. But, am I wrong, wasn't this an atypical thing to do?

I'm curious to hear of anyone who worked in labs, or maybe had their own work transfered, or who perhaps have researched this area. The focus is on the late 60s/early 70s, specifically and only dealing with open-reel going to 16mm. Any memories, stories, notions, speculations welcome, on or off list, and, as always, thank you!

happy new year
