We all have treasured memories on old VHS tapes and snapshots of special occasions, but for most of us these are just collecting dust and worse still – degrading over time.
For over 8 years I worked for the BBC, digitizing, curating and editing content from its incredible archive. From the early David Attenborough films to the Great War documentaries, it was a rare privilege to be part of a project that set out to conserve precious historic documents that may have otherwise been forgotten.
It was during this time that I began to think about my family archive – hours of home video we didn’t have the time to watch, stored on old tapes we couldn’t even play! I decided to bring them back to life in the form of a film that we could all sit down and enjoy as a family.
The result was amazing – watching our loved ones grow up in fast-forward was an incredibly moving experience. Let alone all the special moments we had completely forgotten about – this is what home movies were made for!
Now you can have your own family history preserved in a digital format and transformed into a beautiful film that can be treasured forever and passed down through generations.
