Candle - Actual Film Cell Votives
These film cells actually played on the silver screen. Now everything is digitized, so these were becoming obsolete. The artist who created them, Greg Wolfe, works in the film industry, and was devastated that these films would just be thrown away. He came up with a wonderful idea to preserve them and share them.
Real film cells rescued from the trash and re-purposed.
Here is a chance to own a piece of actual film.
The image you see on this votive is a real 35mm film cell
from an old Hollywood movie.
It ran through a projector and showed on the silver screen.
Each film cell is unique because it only appears
1/24th of a second when projected.
No two images are the same.
We’ve taken a real film cell from a Hollywood motion picture and affixed it to the side of a frosted candle votive to illuminate the image.
Actual Film Votives are created by three New York City projectionists who discovered that 35mm film was slowly disappearing in this digital age. They rescued reels of film from being thrown away and re-purposed these images into nostalgic votives.
The Frosted Square Votive Candle Holder is made of high quality,
heavy-duty 3/16" glass.
Each Votive comes with a Tea Light size candle
with an illumination duration of approximately 4 hours.
There are slight variances from image to image
as film travels 24 frames per second.
The votive you receive may be slightly different.
Same image. Only slightly different.
Own a piece of old Hollywood.
