The 12th Home Movie Day takes place on Saturday.

Old home video cameras may not be as portable as the hi-tech gadgets we have today, but the images are just as compelling. LA's Wende Museum hosts the 12th Home Movie Day on Saturday.

Technology has made capturing our lives on video simple. Ranging from a kid's first day at school to family gathering and even those embarrassing moments you wish would just go away.  Not too long ago they were captured on old home video cameras, not the portable hi-tech gadgets we have today, but the images are just as compelling. 

This weekend Los Angeles plays host to its 12th Home Movie Day, which will be held at the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, located on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile. It's an event where you can share in the collective shame of bad home videos with like-minded souls. 

Kate Dollenmayer, audiovisual archivist at the Wende Museum, and Dino Everett, archivist of the Hugh Hefner Moving Image Archive at USC and home movie enthusiast, join Take Two to talk a little more about the event. 

What: 12th Annual Home Movie Day

Where:  Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, located on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile.
