1980



I am going through old family videos and editing them as part of a project with my dad. This one was a silent video that I cut and edited to take just the best parts. The video starts with my older sister, Julie, and then includes me and my beautiful mom. My dad was vigilant about recording our lives and now, looking back at these videos, it is clear how valuable that is. (Let's qualify that statement: ...how valuable that is for me and for people close to me. Home videos are, to be fair, veritable torture for people outside of that category).

As a fellow lover of my family's hours and hours of home movies, I was pleased to learn that there's actually a whole home movie movement out there. Check out www.homemovieday.com; I think they only accept film (not video) but you should submit some!

Julie and I attended a home movie day at IU last year. We showed a Johnson original. Well received. Thanks for sharing these, Emilie

I don't know if these are torture...I think it is wonderful to be invited into the history of families of the people we love. I love you all and I love sharing your family history. Thanks Emilie!

It's quite a kick to see both you and Julie at such an early age, but it is even more fun to see your mother. Love, Chrys
