Nate Beaty presents Killing Mr. Griffin

From found tape:

Killing Mr. Griffin Video8 Tape

This footage is from a thriftshop box find full of Video8 tapes, most of them computer backups — except this gem.

I’ve been carrying this around and meaning to edit it for ages (aka 10 years). I finally found some time to throw this together in an evening: super-rough, one-pass editing, no adjustments. I obviously didn’t figure out deinterlacing that well. I’ll post something better soon.

Regardless, this video cracks me up as I was in 8th grade when it was made, and enrolled in TAG (who remembers that?) where we did many random projects like this.
