THE MICK HYMANS FILM ARCHIVE
I have been collecting old cine footage since 2001 and have concentrated
on collecting amateur footage as this is unique. The vast majority of these
films cannot be accessed anywhere else in the world. The archive now boasts
over 2,000 reels of film dating back to the 1920's from all over the world and
the collection is growing constantly.
Most of the film is still stored on its original cine
format, but the footage is gradually being transferred onto Mini DV and DVD.
I am particularly interested in aquiring more footage from my
home county of Sussex and the South of England as well as films featuring any
form of transport.
The database is split into pages for every continent as well
as one for the UK and one for specialist subjects e.g. trains, boys brigade,
aircraft, etc. and can be accessed by clicking on one of the links below.
Simply clicking the submit button on each page will give a complete
list of films in each table. The search can be narrowed by selecting items from
the drop down lists. If you cannot find the footage you require, please contact
me by email as I still have a large number of films to be viewed and catalogued.
If you find some footage that interests you, I can supply this at extremely
I also undertake film shows for local societies. Please contact me for further
