Safeguard Old Family Memories in Alaska

Filming as we know it, began in the 1890s with the invention of motion picture cameras. At that time this rudimentary equipment was able to create films of just one minute in length – a far cry from the modern full featured, full length? films. This marked the beginning of motion picture studios.

In those days, films were all silent and it wasn’t until the late 1920s, did technology advance enough, to create film with sound. Despite the fact that there wasn’t anything to hear, motion pictures became extremely popular. Stories and even news events, were translated to film and watched by the masses. In the wake of the Technological Revolution, and the electrification of factories, and city streets people had more time on their hands to be entertained. By the second world war, motion pictures were being shown in Alaska theaters and the craze had taken hold.



Rapid Advancements in Technology

Because of rapid advancements in technology, today we can record sound in the form of music and voice, and listen to playback instantly. We can record video footage of family, friends, pets, events and upload it to the internet in mere minutes. Cellular phones are now made equipped with cameras with resolution in high definition which are a far cry from the motion picture cameras from days of old. We will be the most recorded generations in the history of mankind.

Our family traditions and our cultures will be preserved and this knowledge drawn from, by future generations. Nevertheless, it is important to transfer existing film and audio footage, created with old technology to modern file formats in order to preserve and protect these moments in time. Many programs are underway to assist in preserving our vast old film history but we each need to apply this practice to our own special moments and preserve them for future enjoyment. Call AV Conversion Services in Alaska today and properly care for those cherished memories.
