When I was a kid one of the most exciting evenings we had was when my old man would bring out the 8mm projector, set up the screen and we would have 'home movie' night.
Of course, there was not sound, and in those days, my dad shot in 8mm film, which limited each 'reel' to 3 minutes.
Talk about one to one ratios!
He bought himself a splicing "machine" - which was a metal plate with sprockets and some glue - and set about assembling his 3 minute reels into, well, longer movies.
Our trip to Universal Studios!
Our trip to San Franscisco!
Our trip to Rome - where my sister threw up in the Sistine Chapel.
The advent of home video changed everything.
Now, instead of being limited to 3 minute film reels that cost a lot to buy and a lot more to process, people were able to shoot hours and hours... and hours... and hours... or video.
The difference was that no one very looked at them.
Not even families
Not even under threat and duress.
But every problem has a solution, and Pixorial offers one.
Simple online editing
software and a way to share your videos with your friends - the cyber analog to sitting in the living room watching home movies together.
With Pixorial you're not just limited (if that is the word) to what you shot last week, you can also send them your old VHS tapes to digitize, edit and upload.
The material is then presented as a 'show'.
I am going down to the storeroom to search for my sister Amy in the Vatican. Some things are timeless.
