We’re here to preserve that record before these films are lost, and to make those films available for viewing by the public and for use by artists seeking new, compelling footage. Lost in Light is a project devoted to preserving, showcasing, and celebrating films created on the small-gauge 8mm film format.
To that end, we will provide free Super 8 and 8mm to video transfers to anyone who asks, in exchange for posting their video to the Lost in Light site and on the Internet Archive with their choice of Creative
The site will have a soft launch with some content as soon as funding is available, with a full, hard launch set for January 2007.
Join us on this exciting visual journey through time and creativity!
A note from Markus Sandy, Lost In Light’s advocate:
When Jen Proctor and Aaron Valdez first proposed their Lost In Light project, I immediately fell in love with the idea. Perhaps it’s because much of my own childhood was captured on 8MM. Perhaps it is the voyeuristic thrill of experiencing “other people’s memories” and a sense of “time travel”. Perhaps it is the community aspects around film preservation.
I just know that I love it and hope you will support this fine project that aims to both educate and preserve.
