What is the Memory Vault?
It’s a collection of old movie clips, kindly submitted by you – our loyal customers. This is a community site, run for free by Alive Studios to allow our customers to easily share historically interesting films from their home movie collections.
We hope to grow this into a huge database of old films, categorized by year, location and subject matter. Please add as much of your collection as you think people want to see. Simply log in to your private gallery on your Karishma Cloud account and get sharing… Enjoy!
Alive Studios spent some time recently working with Andrew Morton on the images to be used in his latest book – 17 Carnations – a compelling account of the wartime world of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, which neither the government nor the royals of the day wanted you to read. Morton sourced private film archives from all over the world, and sought the help of Alive Studios to scan and restore the tiny film cells to produce some incredible photographs to be published throughout the pages of the book.
Check out a few of the pictures on this page – these were taken by using the ‘JPEG Image Sequence’ option when ordering 8mm cine film in HD to Blu-ray & DVD
The resulting JPEGS were then cleaned up by hand to produce some great freeze-frame from the never-before-seen films.
– Thank you to Andrew Morton for his mention of our studios in the acknowledgments page of the book.
