Over the last 7 years, I have had the good fortune to provide services for some really amazing families. With a great deal of trust and faith, these families have opened up the archives of their lives. I have seen the most fantastic histories unfold in a visual storyboard. My clients have traveled the world, they have been rock stars, and they have built houses, homes and families.
Every single photo, slide, negative, roll of film or videotape has been absolutely magnificent. Not because they were professionally shot, but because each frame held a genuine moment of surprise, fear, joy, and pride. Having processed more than 30,000 scanned images and almost 15,000 hours of video, I can say this with absolute authority: No matter where we live, or what we do for a living, or how many children we have, our life experiences are extremely similar.
We all tear up when our first child is born.
We all have laughed at some zany family joke.
We all have bad hair days, poor clothing choices and an ugly holiday sweater.
We all try to capture the best of our lives on video or in pictures.
It is in this spirit of affinity that I have launched the SHOW ME YOUR BEST contest. Every other month, I will ask you to send me your best picture or video about a given subject. All the images will be collected and compiled into a single video that will be shared at Digital Shoebox and the YouTube channel.
Every image or video clip you send me earns you an entry into a draw for a prize. The theme for February is “Kiss”. Send me your best image or video of a kiss – it could be your spouse, your kids, your pets, a gushy kiss from an aunt – and you could win a Night out at the Movies at any Empire Theatre across Canada. I’m including admission, drinks and popcorn for two!
You have until February 7th to send your images. So dig through your files and send me your best kiss at email@example.com!
