Cowboy Poets of Idaho
~ 8mm Video Sample Clips


Here are links to sample video clips hosted on Vimeo. These are drawn at random from two or three tapes selected at random from more than 250 tapes. While the technical issues leave a lot to be desired, the tapes do reflect the ambience, tone, outlook, and perspective of the participants and audiences.

These are not "highlights" videos, and I did not preview the entire contents of the tapes, thus, these may not represent "the best" material.

It may be possible to improve picture quality in some cases, although things like over and under exposure cannot really be fixed. These clips are meant to give a sense of the kind of footage the tapes contain, for better or worse.
