A marvellous Amy Adams has to handle close encounters of a different kind in the intelligent SciFi thriller “Arrival”. This alien invasion story with a difference directed by Denis Villeneuve focuses on a linguist tasked with understanding the language of the invaders. But that isn’t the only mystery… Go to the cinema! You will also enjoy encounters of a more familiar kind: with footage from Framepool.

Many people find themselves in the same situation as our nice little family: old personal films are stored somewhere, but unviewable without the right equipment. Framepool has the solution: we can scan your films and review the material. If our experience tells us it could prove successful on the market, we will incorporate it into our archive and Framepool’s quality keywording will ensure it can be found.
As well as rescuing old films from oblivion, this means that they can, with a bit of luck, also provide you with some extra income.

The end of the year is a time for family. And the perfect time for Framepool to present a new collection of delightful personal family footage: Mom, Pop and two small boys beginning to discover the world around them.
Sometimes our job is like Christmas: a carton of Super8 films labelled “Garden” or “Istanbul, Mexico, America” or “Christmas 1970” turns up. We have no idea what kind of treasure has been entrusted to us until the material is scanned. Only then do we find a small family surrounded by Christmas presents, enjoying winter holidays, hiking on tidal mud flats, celebrating children’s birthdays and Easter. We see the sons as newborn babies and as they take their first steps, splash around in puddles, topple headlong into sand, meet dogs and chickens, squabble and cuddle. This terribly nice family wins over hearts.
We also found titbits like the squirrel using a man as a climbing frame, a home-made animated film with the legendary model railway “Märklin 0 Gauge” and many personal impressions from the world of the 1970s. Finding the right keywords for all this footage and getting it online keeps our keywording department busy.
We wish you a peaceful end to the year with these family images and as much fun as we had discovering this intimate and unusual footage:
