Summit Mall – Christmas Season 1970

Movie by William A. Ling. Summit Mall in Fairlawn Village a suburb of Akron Ohio. Shot during the Christmas Season in 1970.

Back then, I thought it was very tricky to shoot this in a way that it made people move at 4 times normal speed. While amusing for a few seconds it gets annoying.

So, I have slowed the speed back down to normal, but it makes people seem to float through the scenes. Oh well, I can’t go back 49 years and shoot it again, so here it is.

See if you can find your parents.
