DVD Update: the equipment I mentioned back in February was removed before I could gain access to it. However, I have found another source of a U-Matic player (semi-professional 3/4" video tape, circa 1985) and video digitizer to allow me to dump the master edit I made back in 1989 to a hard drive.
Spring and summer this year were pretty busy and this project is not a priority, although it is something I definitely want to do. I am hoping to get it done by October (the 21st anniversary of the party) and sell it online. Makes a great holiday gift!
There will also be a companion Special Features DVD with extra footage of the party setup, and some scenes from a Kernfield Party or two that I have squirreled away. All neat stuff from decades ago, when we were all tawnier and life was just opening up.
