I want to share with you a very special project: YourLostMemories. An initiative which rescues lost Super 8 films and delivers them to their owners. I think this is awesome. Read on to know all about it.
What is YourLostMemories?
YourLostMemories was born when we discovered amateur 8mm movies in flea markets and second hand shops all around the world. Celulloid images of weddings, birthday parties, grad parties, holidays; lost movies full of memories…
Who wants to miss their memories? Nobody wants to forget their best moments in life. Right? We think we’re talking about lost movies. Not abandoned.
YourLostMemories is something like a virtual lost & found memories office. We propose you to look for all these lost 8mm movies around the world, find their original owners and give them them back.
How can you help us?
YourLostMemories needs your help. Search these amateur Super8 movies in flea markets or second hand shops in your city. Once you’ve found them, send them via ordinary cash on delivery post service to:
Your Lost Memories – Av. Diagonal 349, Ppal. 2a – 08037 – Barcelona (Spain)
We’ll digitize them and upload the images in our website so we can find the owners.
How can you point us the owners?
Do you know anyone or any place appearing in a movie? Leave us a clue in the website, so it’s easier to find the true owners of these movies. Is it you who appears in a movie? Maybe some relatives? If you are the owner of a movie, contact us through the form and YourLostMemories will send you your movies back (and your memories).
Isn’t it a wonderful project?! I was really excited when I heard about it.
Find out all about this fantastic initiative and share it with everyone! Help lost memories to go back where they should be, the heart of many people!
