Slivers: Found 8mm Film Scraps. I was about to take a vacuum to the inside of the kit when I picked up a small sliver of plastic and held it up to the light. I saw something. Too small to be seen with the eye. I took it to a scanner and scanned one of the small pieces in. Right in front of my eyes materialized a small child with a baseball bat. I went back to the old editing kit and carefully examined every inch of the box and found many of these slivers of film.
There were small children dressed in their Easter best to long scrapped-out cars. A strange feeling came over me as I sat there thinking about how these slivers of the film could have outlasted the movies themselves.
