My mom has found our developed Super 8 silent films from my childhood times some days ago and this is one of the most exciting surprises I’ve had this year! I supposed they were lost years ago and I was feeling very sad about them because they were lovely memoirs. It was my dad (and sometimes my mom) who filmed the family (mostly me & my brother) with a Kodak M24 Instamatic which was very popular movie camera especially in 70’s.
I’ve decided to have digital transfer (telecine) of those films to make a DVD copy and to have an avi format, and we made it done! Me and my brother will work on it soon. Keep in touch! A humble, lovely short movie may come in the near future;-)
