Encapsulator is more than just a video time-capsule. It gives people an outlet to express their innermost regrets, desires, and hopes. We created Encapsulator because we care.
The foundations of Encapsulator have their roots in addiction recovery programs. In fact, before we created the Encapsulator mental health programs, they were implemented at Glebe House, an addiction recovery facility. The success rate for these programs was very high, with many residents providing positive reviews.

“Good to have something to look back on and see how far I have come, see my progress and what else I need to work on"
“Helped me to remember just how passionate I was to recover, motivated me more to get back on track"
“I couldn’t believe the intense look on my face back in the early days, I have really come a long way"


My name is Danny Shannon, creator of Encapsulator and I’ve been sober for over a decade. There was a point in my life where I couldn’t see the light. Personal video journaling is something that I truly wish I had during my initial recovery. It’s a way for people to be able to track their progress through life, through the words of their own past selves. We are ever-evolving, and time capsule videos can help us see our own brilliance, our own transformations—no matter what walk of life we come from, and no matter how minute our changes.


We decided that this sort of therapy could be adapted for many different purposes and goals. We’ve created incredible programs that address gratitude, hope, and positivity for:

These programs are fully customisable, and all participants have the opportunity to follow the program as directed by management. Individuals also have the option to update their time capsule video as often as they wish, as they progress towards their goals.
