Get "Reel" About Your Home Movie Legacy... Before It's Too Late!
If you are lucky enough to have Home Movies from the 1930s to 1980s shot on 16mm, 8mm or Super 8 film you might be in a conundrum as to how to move these treasures into your digital life. GET “REEL” ABOUT YOUR HOME MOVIE LEGACY…. Before It’s Too Late! offers practical tips on how to evaluate the condition of your aging library, best practices to preserve the original film, what a professional transfer facility offers that a consumer facility does not, options to edit and create a story, how to share footage on social media, watch on a smart phone, iPad or HD TV, and options to sell clips as stock footage.
Rhonda’s insight into the emotional value of home movies offers an important “call to action” to do something with your home movies before it’s too late! Learn how your films can help to shift your focus and transform your understanding of family dynamics, sometimes resulting in a breakthrough to help move you forward in your life
I really hope this book resonates with people who don’t realize that home movies could and should be an invaluable and incomparable legacy for future generations. They are how our grand kids and other future family members and friends will know who we are, what we were, what we did, and how we lived.

At my Dad’s memorial reception, I had three big screen TVs and two laptops showing the home movie footage which Pro8mm so beautifully transferred. I love having these because it feels like having him around again. He was exactly the same in spirit, silliness and behavior at 90 as he was at 20.
