And they’re back!

And they’re back! Cameras and spent Super 8mm film are starting to arrive at the door from participating families. Looking forward to processing the film and seeing what treasures are inside. My older sisters spoke about when our Dad use to receive back a processed roll of Super 8mm film back after a holiday, and what an exciting moment it was. They made real ceremony of setting up the projector, the sheet as a screen and being nominated ‘the light girl’ to turn off the lights. They described the ritual as “releasing the butterfly”. I’m loving the little notes that are coming back written on the rolls of film from the families – “pretty sure this ones ok”, we had a bit of trouble with cartridges jamming unfortunately.
