Now here is something on the unique side… a votive or tealight holder that has a single frame of film from old movies embedded on the holder itself. Here is more info pulled from their website:
A single frame of film from a Hollywood motion picture is embedded on the side of a frosted candle votive to illuminate the image. Each film cell is unique since each cell only appears 1/24th of a second when projected. This is truly a one of a kind item.
The film cells used to create the Actual Film Votive are from random reels of film that have been rescued from being thrown in the trash. You’d be surprised what gets thrown out as movie theaters make the transition from film to digital. All of these iconic images from old Hollywood already exist in a national archive and have made the journey from the original 35mm film to the digital world of disc and hard drive media.
In this digital age, 35mm film is slowly disappearing and what’s left is archived, privately collected or discarded. We have re-purposed these images from film history and have given them another viewing – one candle at a time.
Here is a chance to own a piece of actual film. A hand crafted one of a kind film cell from a bygone era that once had its run in an old movie house. Our Actual Film Votive can turn your mantle, shelf or office into a mini museum for any film enthusiast or friend to admire.
The votive holder I received was a piece from the Wizard of Oz. It also came with a battery operated little light so you don’t even need a real wicked votive or tealight to enjoy it. I thought that was cool! When lit up, the film glows and shines bright so you can see the image perfectly.
