Found Film: 1978 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

This footage is all about the balloons at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, I really think you get a good feel for what this world-class balloon race was really like in 1978. 

You see how easy the balloonist make it look, but also what happens when something goes wrong at the end when the wind picks up you see a balloon that looks to be having some issues!

How did you digitize this film?

We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.

It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
