Cory - works best with a projector w/ 5 bladed shutter...
hard to find at the thrift store alas...
I have some Honeywell computer training films we need to digitize someday too..
also have a set of reels for Beginning or the End? the first doc-u-drama about the Manhattan project that was dome right after the war I would like shit to single frames. yea it is out on DVD and on TCM sometimes but I want sharper stills of a family member that was in it.
We also have some of the old BELL system movies but many of those are utubed..
problem with the utubed stuff it is soft. and lo res and lousy If you want still frames that look great.

Might be worth checking to see if any of your titles have already been digitized. I know Once Upon a Punch Card was loaded to YouTube a number of years ago (could be worth checking with the uploader to see if they have a high quality version available if you'd like a personal copy). Might save having to re-invent the wheel.
I like to pick up the occasional 16mm computer film off eBay for my own use, but I've also converted a couple to digital using the low tech 'camera aimed at screen' method. Actually, it was my iPhone on a tripod running software that allowed for frame rate adjustment AND color shifting to take the red out of the film and boost the faded hues. -Cory
