Last year, Julia and Nathan were married in Philadelphia and took the homemade films kit along with them on their honeymoon. They loved shooting so much that they purchased the camera from us and started filming more on their own. This past summer, the two traveled to Italy, Spain, England, and Iceland and just blew us away with the results. We hope you enjoy this sweet and charming European adventure!!
I recently wrote about the photo album that is created each Christmas to chronicle our family’s past year. Another tool we utilize for documenting important events in our fam is the A Bryan Photo Homemade Films kit. We chose to use the kit on two occasions in 2013. The first was a trip to New York in March. Ashley & I took our oldest son there for his spring break, along with our good friends Steph & James. This is a tradition we hope to carry out with all our kids when they are in the first grade. The second film was made over our summer in New England. My family watches these films often and they serve as a perfect reminder of all we have to be thankful for.
How would you like to see your family’s memories preserved this year? May we recommend giving our Homemade Films kit a try?
It is easy to find a reason to shoot Super 8 at some of life’s bigger events like weddings or the birth of a child. But Teryn & Steve have shown us that the medium can have a simple purpose, like a holiday greeting. They shot this short in their apartment with a small tree & some white lights, and a little creativity. We find so much beauty and charm in this little film. Let us know if we can help you produce something short but certainly sweet for a friend or a loved one.
This past summer, Lindsey & I went camping with our friends, Jordan & Audrey Mahy, to celebrate the beautiful weather. Camping was a big part of my childhood, and I wanted to bring the Super 8 camera along with us to capture the fun of being around friends and family. I love the silliness (Jordan and I setting up the tent, swimming, putting Penny on our shoulders) and the serenity (morning light, beautiful lake, lying in the hammock) that this film depicts.
I can’t recommend enough setting aside unique moments in life to document in a different way. I’m thankful to work at a place that encourages this kind of creativity and intentionality. Enjoy!
Every summer Lindsey and I get the wonderful opportunity to take some time off and travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world. This year we ventured throughout the Canadian Rockies and dipped into Montana to visit Glacier National Park. While there we took the Homemade Films camera with us on the trail and documented our hike, which was a grand total of 14 miles! We had a blast shooting the jaw-dropping scenery, the natural wildlife, and, of course, each other. Although the hike was difficult at times, I’m thankful we took the camera as the payoff was worth every bit of the work.
