Beautiful Film Restoration

jeff altman, a film colorist and photographer, inherited all of his grandfather's 16mm home movies and is in the process of transferring them to hd, stabilizing them, coloring them, and posting the footage to vimeo. this particular video is filmed at disneyland in 1956, a year after the park opened. walt disney was at the park that day and appears in the footage. the image is remarkably crisp and the color is superb.
