Neon Signs of 1966 - A Short Art Film

Post by Lost Fresno » Tue Apr 10, 2018 2:03 pm

When I was 15 years old, I began work on a career to eventually become a Hollywood Film Director. I produced short movies and shot a lot of movie film. This was back when making movies was more like magic or for the rich, instead of pressing a button on your smart phone. Fate had something different in mind for me and it didn't work out, but the old film stock remains. In this short art film, we take a night time tour of some of Fresno's most famous neon signs. The year is 1966.

The film is triple exposed to produce an artistic effect. Although somewhat irrating to watch now, you can still see neon signs now long gone. The art effect makes you read them upside down, sideways and so on. But still fun as heck to see these signs. Which ones can you spot that are not listed below?
