Xy Fun On Giant Slide Circa 1968 (Vintage Film Home Movie) 1166

Fun on GIANT SLIDE Circa 1968 (Vintage Film Home Movie). The Giant Slide, yellow and bright, brings laughter from all the kids (generations of people going down the slide, grandparents to children)…stands out from the crowd. The idea of a slide about 150 feet long, 50 feet high and 30 feet wide was born. An architect was consulted whereby they discussed the idea of a Giant Slide. The first slide was built at the Orange Show in San Bernardino, CA . It was a big success, but they weren’t happy with this original design, so back to the architect. In September of 1968 the second slide was built at the Pomona Fairgrounds (where it remains to this day). This time they were happy with the results. Over the next four years, 42 slides were built, one in almost every state, and including Canada and Australia. In 1969, the Giant Slide was selected as the #1 fair attraction in America.

Resolution Guide:

4k: The highest-quality, premium video size at 4x the pixels of standard HD resolutions. Get the sharpest possible image and best color depth by integrating 4k footage into your creative work. For further editing control, look for the “R3D” file type, if available. 4k clips are usually recommended for high-end commercial use, within the limits of the item’s releases and royalty-free license.

HD (High Definition or Hi-Def): The hi-res industry standard in 1080 & 720 sizes. HD is the best size for modern TVs, general video streaming (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), and is also generally applied in commercial & editorial uses within stated legal limits.

SD (Standard Definition): Standard def is the traditional size of TVs up until the mid-2000s. Currently, SD is the minimum quality needed to digitally stream content, and usually less expensive than HD or 4K. SD is also ideal for personal creative projects.
