Cool vintage marketing and training videos - prelinger archive

Ran across these today. There is lots of stuff in these old archives. Some could be useful for reference if you're aiming for an "old training video style". It's remarkable to see what folks accomplished 50 years ago before the dawn of the transistor.

I love going through that site. It would be fun to re-do those videos using today's presentation models.

The posture lesson, for example is classic: http://archive.org/details/HealthYo1953 

What's interesting is how they use vignettes to introduce the lessons and combine narration with first-person dialog.

Where are the learning objectives?

The commons are pretty good. Some images are restricted use though, need to look at the license. Most are free for any use.


Thanks, Steve!  I love using old-time photos in my presos, as David can testify to.
