CU baskets of uncooked fries being lowered into hot oil. MS older white man wearing white side cap and apron wheeling large container of solid shortening to deep fryer.

PREVIEW # 210812 In this drivers educational film we learn the ways drivers make themselves known to other cars around them (avoiding accidents in the process). There are numerous travelling LS's down suburban streets and business districts on a bright sunny day. There are obvious CU's of signal flashers, hands on horns, and manual signals as well as several scenes of accidents (implied impacts), potential accidents, and near misses. There is also one nighttime highway driving shot.

ON PREVIEW CASSETTE #992110 This film deals with the manufacturing and processing of fan blades and blower wheels by a company named Revcor. Explanations of product applications and how they are produced are specific features in this sober promotional flick. There are oodles of mechanical footage and workers operating them,typically in a CU -dolly -out-to-MS or LS format. Management and sales engineers constantly investigate the product in both factory and meeting rooms. There is an animated montage of product manufacturing that culminates in a tight live-action LS of a fat man wearing red sweats on a stationary bicycle (!) (exercise bicycle). There are several shots of early '80's computers operated by stuffy keyboard jockeys (big,thick glasses and tight,short-sleeved dress shirts). Fan blades and blower wheels are processed,produced,inspected, packaged and driven into the sunset (sunrise?) on a truck,shot both in and outside the auto. There is a fairly typical VO narration that seeks to sell and inform prospective clients.

This is a product promo for Sears air conditioners, but it seems to function better as outsider art. A "typical' family lives in a bright white "house" (actually a TV studio) : Mom sits in her chair, her brother loafs in a hammock, a little boy shoots plastic arrows at everyone, and a nubile teenage daughter dances around, jiggling suggestively in a two-piece bikini (she wears next to nothing the entire film). It gets unbearably hot, they hallucinate (the TV weatherman gets evil), the family fights, a Sears salesman comes over with catalogs and AC products, the daughter gets doused with a bucket of water, an air conditioner gets sold, and the Sears salesman stands outside the happily air conditioned family's house while money falls from the heavens to his delight. There are some product shots of air conditioners and a shagadelic soundtrack swings throughout the film.

PREV #98795III The omnibus of electrical systems in RV's (how they work and how they should be properly installed). The narrating host (a middle aged male) leads us through the steps and procedures of installation, courtesy his electrician lackey. There are plenty of electrical system diagrams and how they are routed, as well as ECU's inside circuit branches and grounding systems (during the "how to properly wire your branches segment"). Other related shots include a MS of an overweight man installing a ceiling flash ring and a MS of a woman in the RV's kitchen making coffee. The tone is informal, the script is straight ahead and informative (if RV electrical systems are what you desire).

ON PREVIEW CASSETTE #991537Q This is a surgical promo piece for Surg-A-Lift, an innovative industrial gurney that virtually eliminates the need of lifting the patient from table to table. There are several LS's of emergency room personnel doing their business (not actual footage but staged), how the Surg-A-Lift operates, operating rooms, X-Ray rooms and patient bays (all procedures are scripted) as well as several CU's of the Surg-A-Lift's components (hydraulic foot pump, wheel brake, positioning canopy,etc.). A straight forward film shot in an actual hospital during its employees' downtime.
