Retro Surf Gold – 8mm Magic
In 1973, hobbyist filmmaker, David Barnes, and his girlfriend Judy, went on a surf trip to Seal Rocks on the NSW mid-North Coast. David filmed it all on his 8mm movie camera and then cut an edit when he got back. Fast forward to 2021. David’s daughter, Belinda, decides to surprise her father with a 70th birthday gift – a restored and remastered version of her father’s old movie, complete with soundtrack. This was a special project for Scanned and Secure and I hope you enjoy this beautiful film with insightful and iconic footage from life in 1973.
