There is a point in our life's journey when we ask ourselves what is the purpose of our existence on this planet and how we should or would leave a mark, if we are destined to do so.
Well – fortunately for me, my question was answered by the profession I've chosen: SAVING MEMORIES! YES - memories – we all have them...and for more than three decades I had the privilege to provide services to individuals from all walks of life and to assist with the preservation of their memories.
YOU, my customers, have allowed me to leave my mark by preserving thousands of memories to a new format. In the matter of fact – each one of you, that has entrusted me with your memories on video tape, film, slides, or audio reels, has allowed me to become part of YOUR past, part of YOUR family and part of YOUR loved ones. YOU have taken me to places that I was never able to visit in person. No matter if it was a visit to Disneyland in 1955, the Seattle World Fair in 1962, a wild ride down the ski slopes in Aspen in 1980 or the countless family get-togethers during Christmas and Thanksgiving – it was YOUR captured imagery that helped me to grow and ultimately made me become what I am today...and I am grateful for that!
Some of your conversions and transfers may have been blurry, color-less or out of focus…but be rest assured: it was always an exact reproduction of your original at the time of transfer.
Sure – technology changed throughout the years and I have proudly re-invested all of my business income into purchasing superior equipment, utilizing the latest advancements in technology. No matter if it was a delicate film transfer using hyper sensitive film scanners or TeleCine equipment or if it was a simple video tape to DVD transfer via Firewire: it was always performed with the best and most advanced equipment available!
So - my purpose on this planet is clear...I am here to assist YOU in sharing past and present memories with your family, your children, their children, their grandchildren and so on – it is what we all love to do…it is sharing LIFE!
I have therefore developed a new idea, implementing all the foregoing and have created the QR Memory Marker: it is YOUR LIFE, compressed into a small dotted square, aka a QR code. You have to have a FREE QR reader installed on your portable device, scan the QR code and watch a detailed story of a person's life! I have dedicated the first QR code videos I've ever made to my parents Heinz and Hildegard, that sadly passed away too early. If you like the concept, please contact me and let's talk about your project and if money is no object, please be reminded that I am a filmmaker with my own professional HD video equipment, also a FAA certified drone pilot with his own professional 4K HD camera equipped drone and his own personal video editing equipment. I have a valid passport, been always willing to travel and will create a perfect legacy QR code for you!
Enjoy the ride, make it last as long as you can and if you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me.
It is now mid-August 2020 and I will be starting a crowd funding campaign to build the foundation for the business by mid 2021. It will take me that long to find a building, hire the right staff, talk to manufacturers and creating a business plan....maybe even longer. Please click on this link if you would like to participate and pledge any amount between 20 and 1000 Dollars for getting the business off the ground . It's the 21st Century and "crowd funding" is the new way to get funds for a startup together. Of course you will be rewarded for your pledge and if the business plan is fully funded, be one of the first ones to receive the product. Please note: if the funding goal is NOT reached in the specified time window, your pledge will be returned in its entirety!
