Filmed on Super 8

Posted on Feb 19, 2017 in Family

Super 8 film came out in 1965 by Eastman Kodak and was debuted at the Worlds Fair that year.  The film was special because it came in square plastic containers and had 50 feet of film inside which would give you about 2 1/2 minutes of footage filming at 24 frames a second or 3 1/3 minutes at 18 frames per second.

When the film was developed it came out on these tiny reels and people would loop it into their projectors and watch it like you would in a movie theater.  Sometimes the projector would jam up and  you would watch the bulb of the projector burn through the film.  Ahh, the olden days.

It was extremely popular because the film was reliable and it was so easy to load into cameras.  Eventually though, the film format was replaced by digital video cameras.

Patrick has been experimenting with Super 8 film and purchased a new vintage film camera called the Canon 814 XL-S.  This was his first experimental roll and it turned out quite nice.  You can see the dreamy texture and softness of the film which gives it that old time quality.

Super 8 was reminiscent of our childhood since our dad would take film of us with a camera like this when we were kids.

Happy Vietnamese New Year!

Posted on Jan 29, 2017 in Family

Finn is celebrating his first Vietnamese New Year.  He has received 4 different Ao Dai’s which are traditional Vietnamese clothing that was introduced in the 19th century.

I wore one for my wedding, and now Finn wears one for his first new year.  He is very proud of his Vietnamese heritage.

Oh, and those little red envelopes are full of money from his relatives!
