The Birthday Project Page

2019

 
Every year we are planning something special for Louis' birthday, which is on February 20th.

This year we're making a good wishes "movie"!

Here's how it's going to work.

We have an antique 35mm film reel and a matching antique reel tin, and we're hoping to fill it up with your personal wishes for his birthday.
 
 
There are several ways to participate:
 
1. Print out the large film strip image below so it is exactly the size of a piece of paper (8.5 x 11 inches). Use colored paper if possible. Then write your good wishes directly on the film strips - you may use as many film strips in as many different colors as you like. Make sure the film strips are exactly 35mm wide from edge to edge.
 
If you're not comfortable with resizing images email Ferreira Fest and we'll send you a .pdf document that you can simply print out - it's already the proper size. You can also try to download the document here:
 
Decorate your filmstrips any way you like - calligraphy, stickers, glitter glue, drawings - it's all good!
Then email Ferreira Fest for mailing instructions. Please make sure your submission arrives no later than February 4th, 2019 to allow for final assembly and shipping.
 
 
2. Instead of mailing the original film strips you can scan them in and email them to Ferreira Fest (use Birthday Project in the subject line). We'll print them out and add them to the collection!
 
 
3. If you'd rather share some photos please download the film strip below, insert your own photos or written wishes, save it as a .jpg file and email it to Ferreira Fest (use Birthday Project in the subject line).
 
 
4. Or you can email your wishes and messages directly to Ferreira Fest (use Birthday Project in the subject line). We'll work them onto a film strip, print it out and include it in the roll.
 

PLEASE NOTE: ALL BIRTHDAY WISHES MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 4TH TO ALLOW FOR FINAL ASSEMBLY AND SHIPPING!!
 
Please, no autograph or contact requests. This project is strictly for wishing Louis a Happy Birthday. Thanks!
