DeAnza Animation Stand Restoration

December 4, 2004

Restoration of the DeAnza animation stand (an old 16MM stand from the former Colossal Films studio) is now well underway.

  • The stand is fully re-assembled and all of the wiring has been checked.
  • Manual composite motion controls are currently very loose but appear to just need adjustment.
  • Counter-balance weight needs to be reduced, but camera head motor is operational and responds to control.
  • All lights function well and mounts are solid.
  • Platten glass cylinoid is not operating, suspect damaged connector is at fault.

Further repairs and photographs in a few days.
