Scrapbook Series

We have been asked why our “Scrapbook” series of DVDs is only available in selected outlets. Most of the “Scrapbook” DVDs were made for presentation evenings that we do by request and, as we give a live commentaty on the evening, these DVDs do not have narration and also contain other film clips to fill up an evening. Therefore we have not offered them for general release. UNTIL NOW. We are constantly being asked for these DVDs so now you can purchase online. But be aware that they all contain film clips that have been featured on the “Captured on Cine” DVDs. Special offer on all Scrapbook Series DVDs until end of April, now only £8 each including postage

image.php-8SHANKLIN SCRAPBOOK

The Isle of Wight Film Archive, Image Films and FilmWight have about 100 hours of Island films in their combined collections. Spools of commercial productions stand alongside semi-professional movies and amateur film clips. The trustees are slowly viewing the miles of footage to catalogue and preserve these precious and fragile glimpses of people and places long gone from the Island scene. The original film makers intended their movies to be seen, not hidden away in a rusty can on a dusty shelf, so to this end DVDs are being produced to eventually bring them all to a wider audience. ‘Shanklin Scrapbook’ contains selected extracts from, ‘Yesterday’s Movies’, ‘Carnival Cavalcade’, ‘Island In The Sun’, ‘The Mellanby Collection’ and ‘Along The Shore’, some of the DVDs already available, as well as recently discovered footage that has not previously seen the light of day.

Shanklin Scrapbook also contains “1953 Coronation Clippings” from the Mellanby Collection and “Sunshine Isle”.

The Southern Vectis Omnibus Company was formed in March 1929, a joint venture between the Vectis Bus Co. and Southern Railway. Over 80 years on the name is still in use, although there have been many changes of ownership and vehicles over the years. Buses have always been a popular subject for photographers, and with the introduction of home movie cameras many enthusiasts began capturing vehicles on cine. This DVD is a compilation of clips from the Image Films Archive collection and features footage from the 1940s to the present day. Also included is a short film, ‘Sunshine Isle’, depicting the Island in the 1950s.
