22 Jan CREATING TIME CAPSULES – FEEDBACK
Through each Creating Time Capsules course, I watch the films created and see the stories & memories that have been frozen in time… a gift to look back on in years to come.
I see the treasures they are…
I’m often blown away by emails from participants… when someone takes the time, to let you know how a little film they’ve made has impacted their family… it fills me up with goodness.
This is the story one lady in New Zealand shared with me…
“I’d like to drop you a line to say big THANK YOU for the course you offered last year. I wanted to tell you more about the Christmas film I made.
I came to New Zealand as an exchange student from Japan, and in the film, is my host family that I stayed with almost 20 years ago. We’ve spent countless Christmas together, but last year we found out that my host dad has cancer. He’s had a surgery, but we are still in uncertainty. So we don’t take it for granted any more.
My host sister put the film up on her face book page, and we received loads of comments from family and friends, as well as many exchange students from all over the world whom they hosted over the years. And it meant so much to my Kiwi dad. He said, he will cherish the video forever. It was the best Christmas present ever! I was so glad to be able to capture the day and share it with the others, and was overwhelmed by the response.
And of course, the idea of filming came from your course. You helped me to see and capture. As you see, I have been making more and more films after the course. I’m hooked now!
So I just wanted to let you know that someone in New Zealand is full of gratitude to you.”
Thanks SO much Emu for letting me hear the impact of your film to your extended family – it was a beautiful film.
