Created for the Vimeo Weekend Project. Here were the rules for this video:

Here are the rules:

1. You must tell a story about a family. You can tell a story about your own family, or help a friend or complete stranger off the street tell a story about their families. As long as there is at least one familial relation mentioned, you're good!

2. You must use archival media of some kind. This could mean very old 8 or 16mm films, home videos, photographs, or sound recordings.

3. Your video must be 3 minutes or less.

As I was cleaning out my mom's storage, I looked inside one of the boxes to find my Father's 8mm footage. There were (17) 100' rolls. I had them digitized and processed.

This will be a great Christmas Gift for the family after finding something so valuable. It was destiny to watch such wonder footage that my father shot.

Merry Christmas to you all and a Happy New Year!

HD footage shot on the Sony A77.
8mm footage shot by my father: Shih Che Cheng
