Decades in Colour - Crowdsourcing History

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

DECADES IN COLOUR is “crowd sourced history”. We asked New Zealanders to share their home movies and filmed experiences with us. It’s an unofficial history – more “collected memory” than factual chronology. The results were wonderful; we now have over 2000 sources of personal colour footage from the 1940s to the 1980s. Many people who contacted the Decades team for Series 1 had little or no idea what their reels of (sometimes-vinegar-smelling) film contained; they were an inheritance from family members or, in one case, a random find in a local dumpster. Others had taken the film themselves and had fabulous recollections of shooting it, but hadn’t seen the images for years. Relatively little was digitized. We contracted a specialist film archivist/transfer specialist to the team and set up detailed submission and caretaker processes. A 3 x 1-hour series (1950s, 1960s, 1970s) hosted by Judy Bailey and screened on Prime TV, was successful enough in connecting with an audience that we are now completing Series 2 - a further three episodes, expanded to cover 1940-1989 and themed Work, Home, Play.
