Back in October last year I was so grateful to travel to California to be part of Oasis with my lovely Shutter sisters. I’ve shared parts of the trip here, but in my head, I always knew I wanted to combine it all to make a Time Capsule film of my moments there.

But November and December were consumed with moving house and then there was Christmas. Most of January has been taken up with creating A JOURNEY, so it’s only been this past week I’ve dipped into my footage and started playing around.

Perhaps the snow encouraged me too, so I could re-live the warmth, the light and colours of California again. They really blow my mind! If only we had just little of it here…

So I’ve made my Time Capsule. It’s a totally indulgent film, I know that! Just little snippets of what I saw… the colours, the light, the sunshine, the beach, all the things I love… and me being silly, clearly addicted to stop-motion and I figured if you don’t have anyone else willing to be in front of the camera (like I normally do with my boys)… I put yourself in it! It’s my story anyway.

So this is my story…and how very very lucky I was…

    It may be “indulgent” but it’s beautiful! It certainly tickled my memory banks … and such lovely memories are stored there. I miss the sunshine and warmth … but more, I miss all the sisters.
