|TrailRidge Mountain Camp - the Buladean Years||
Here's the fourth of five recently discovered and digitized old camp feature films created by kids and counselors. This one is about the abduction of Lucy, the camp goat. Check it out.
And so, here we are 33 years later getting a chance to look back at our younger selves. This video was filmed in 1989 and stars a bunch of campers along with Davies, John, and Barclay.
We made a second movie in 1988, in July. This was probably during our longer session. Check it out. it's fun.
Apparently, in 1988 - campers and counselors on a rather boring Sunday afternoon decided to write, direct, act, film, and "kind of edit" a feature film. These movies are about ten minutes or so each and while the quality can't compare to what we could do today with a decent digital camera or a cellphone...they're still funny to watch.
Check out this first one, "A Camper's First Session - or A Parent's Mistake."
Just some random thoughts about how TrailRidge came to be and about life at the camp in those first 15 or so years in Buladean.
