The aim of this project is to utilise film about Gibraltar described HERE.
This film material will form the basis of a documentary about Gibraltar. It will include history, family links and the
current political situation. The Covid pandemic and Brexit both have an impact on Gibraltar and will be included in this
film. The idea is at an early stage but could be an interesting piece of work to create and hopefully to watch.
The aim of this project is to utilise film shot in the early 1970s described HERE.
The starting point for this project is a video transfer of the 16mm film and a reel of 1/4/" tape containing the soundtrack.
The tape has a signal, encoding the camera speed during the shot, recorded on a separate track. This signal allows the
soundtrack speed to be modified, during transfer to the computer, to match the frame rate of the video transfer of the film.
The clapper board closing on the film and the sound of the clap on the soundtrack allows the sound and picture to be aligned.
This process is known as synchronisation. The video of the Film, and the synchronised sound, will then be output as a .mp4 file.
