Back to Neverland:

This award winning short film, combining live action and animation, played in the main theater at Disney/MGM Studios’ Animation Pavilion. Walter Cronkite, in his familiar role of trusted newscaster, set out to reveal the secrets behind Disney animation. Robin, in the role of Disney World tourist, volunteered to help with Walter’s show-and-tell. With a twinkle in his eye, Walter called on his assistant Tinkerbell to transport them to a magical limbo where anything could happen.  More Information on Jerry’s Site Here

Home Movies with Ward Kimball:

Transferred from an ancient VHS. Taken on one of Ward’s “Train Days”, where he got the steam engines rolling across his property and invited family and friends. On this visit, he also got his miniature train set fired up. Lots of fun. Wish I’d transferred it sooner, when the tape was more stable.

Cinémagique:  According the Jerry, one of his favorite projects Cinemagique
