What is a Family Documentary?

Family Documentary Video by Family Tree Video

A Family Documentary by Family Tree Video is a memoir on video that preservesĀ a family’s stories and history for younger generations to know. Family Documentaries are also known as Family History Videos and Legacy Videos.

Stories are recorded through filmed interviews that are skillfully edited and woven together with family photos, documents and other memorabilia. The finished movie is a beautiful “moving portrait” capturing the story of an individual, couple or family – in their own words.

Best of all, a Family Documentary is easy to duplicate and share so every family member can have their own copy of the movie.

Family Documentary Production

In the past, only movie studios and documentarians like Ken Burns, could do justice to any kind of documentary production. Not only was the process bigger in scope than what any one person could undertake, but the subject had to have wide spread appeal.

Today, with advances in technology, there is a new type of documentary producer. One that specializes in working solely with families to capture their stories – real stories of real people. These producers help families preserve their history in way that will captivate for generations to come.

What is in Family Documentary?

A Family Documentary Video is designed to a client’s needs. Below are a few examples:

  • Some families bring the family tree to life by the capturing several family members sharing memories of the family history.
  • Others keep the focus closer to the present by capturing the life story of a parent, grandparent or loved one in their own words..
  • Still others choose to document a special event or experience and begin a tradition that will inspire others to do the same.

There is no one way or right way to preserve a family’s stories, history and legacy. That is why a Family Documentary offer such unique appeal.
