Hamburg Marketing im Wandel der Zeit

Was sich nicht alles verändert in mehr als 30 Jahren. Im Hafen löschen keine Stückgutfachter mehr ihre Ladungen, die City Nord rottet so ir ich hin, und die Konzerne, die man stolz ansiedelte, schleusen keinen Wohlstand mehr in die Stadt. Auf Hochhausghettos ist auch keiner mehr stolz, und das Restaurant auf dem Fernsehturm dreht sich lange schon nicht mehr.

Aber mit der Reeperbahn, dem Hafen, St. Pauli und Blankenese macht man heute noch genauso Werbung, wie damals. Nur die Mode war schicker:

Hamburg – Great City on a Great River from Friedemann Wachsmuth on Vimeo.

This is an avisynth-recycled copy of an old and horribly color-shifted 16mm reel I once found on ebay — introducing you to Hamburg, Germany, the most beautiful city in the world and also my home town :)

Meanwhile, I found out more about the origin of this flick:
It is the english version of “Hamburg mal ganz anders”, which played as supporting film for UA’s “Love Story” (1971). It was produced in 1969. This film exists with two different endings, this is the “cinema edition” (the other version ends with a helicopter scene)

I assume this was a quick and dirty pulled work copy, as it has weird cropping and some constant vertical color gradient in the frame center.

The frames were scanned individually by a Müller-HM 73 Framescanner. Cleaning, denoising, sharpening, deshake, super resolution and (most important) color and gamma correction were done with some single fancy avisynth script and a lot of time for tweaking its plenty parameters.
