On The Road Productions


  • World-Wide, World-Class Travel Films


    A few years ago, WNDA Studios began converting approximately thirty analog slide shows - the kind of shows that used real 35mm slides - into modern hi-def videos. The original first-generation shows were shot on Kodachrome and Ektachrome film stock and occasionally included video from grainy video tape; the images told the story of a country and its people through captivating scenes found along the way, catching visuals of people and landscapes in their natural surroundings. Most of the stories recorded every day life, pageants, celebrations and events experienced in rarely visited areas of the country, showing unusual sites seldomly seen by the West. These early shows used the best technology available at the time incorporating two screens, four projectors and primitive surround-sound audio. With the availability of hi-definition technology, WNDA Studios has embarked on a years-long project to update and upgrade these archival gems. We offer an ever-growing catalog of these upgraded and renovated videos here.
