Scenes of Mount Maunganui in 1963, second of two, AV 23-015b,
It was originally thought that one reel was visual and the other a soundtrack but they both appear to be black and white silent 16mm reels and contain similar though not identical footage. This reel shows considerable experimentation with camera angles and locations and includes portions shot upside down as well as several 'works in progress' for an opening title (Zeal Films), closing title, section titles, transitions etc. The date 1963 comes from a church poster briefly seen during a wedding scene. Extent1 x 16mm reel to reel canister (7 inch reel)
