Color film of training on the Aurican/Sound On Film camera at the U.S. Army Photo School at Ft Monmouth, NJ. People shown in footage include Rich Folden, Gassner, and Dan Farbstein.
This 100ft of film was taken by Richard Folden. Rich was a US Army Instructor at the Army's Photo School, Ft. Monmouth, NJ. We were training on the Aurican Sound on Film Camera, each taking turns at the microphone. Rich filmed us with his Bolex 16mm, and was a great instructor (I am the one with the mustache). I am interviewing Gassner, and Dan Farbstein is interviewing me. Rich had given me this footage and after Ft. Monmouth, I wondered what had become of him. He left the Army and spent time in NYC. The few times that I went to NYC with him (Ft. Monmout was about 2 hrs away) he hung around some film students, assisting and learning the craft. I have tracked down a number of the guys from Ft. Monmouth, but no one recalls hearing anything about Rich. This footage was filmed between Nov 1966-April 1967.
