Glitchy video accidentally made from super 8mm projection.
Video ID: Glitchy video of s8mm projection. Begins with indigo, glitch splotches ripping at the image against a black background. Blackness appears where the projection is thrown - it fades in and out with the brightness and darkness of the projections - showing a loose frame of blackness.
