Todd Bieber Finds Owner of Missing NYC Blizzard Roll!


Do you still remember the incredible news of the lost film roll in New York early in the year? Well, it seems that Todd Bieber, the film maker who found the roll, has finally found the elusive owner!

Credits: elede

Talk about dedication! Todd Bieber's story, which shot to fame with him finding an undeveloped roll of film in New York and going to the internet to look for its owner, has finally drawn to a close in what else but a happy ending.

Thousands and thousand of emails after publishing his original video, luck finally smiled on our intrepid analogue hero as he got a solid lead. In Paris.

Without thinking twice, Todd together with his girlfriend, hopped on a plane to Europe to meet the film roll’s mysterious owner. Towards the end of his trip in Europe, Todd himself left a mysterious undeveloped roll lying somewhere with a note and an invitation. If you yourself find it, be prepared for an adventure of a lifetime!

Watch his official video update:

Here’s the last update Bieber did before he found the owner:

    lol. I wonder if this means we are all going to be leaving rolls of film laying about to be found. :3 Rather than geocaching it'll be like LomoCaching. haha. I'm glad he found the owner at last.

    i definitely see the place where he put the film... it's in Montmartre, a parallel street (I would say Cité Veron) to the one where is the café des 2 Moulins (the one from movie Amelie).. But if he really let it here it was probably taken like 5 minutes after... Anyone found it les parigos??? :)

    This is a once-in-a-life-time story, so moving and inspiring!
    I am Federica, the blond italian girl you see on the video, Todd and his girlfriend drove all the way from Germany to stop in Turin for just one day. They are amazing people, I am so grateful to be part of this unique adventure, I think I've watched the video at least 20 times but I still get goosebumps!

    I'm so sorry gabysalas, I've only read your message now.
    I did take one or two pictures indeed with my Sprocket Rocket but the film is still in! As soon as I finish it I'll be more than happy to share the photos with all of you.
    (I also took two picture with my reflex but I don't know if you are interested in them.)
