What are Family Tree Videos? Family Tree Videos are memoirs on video that preserve a family’s stories for younger generations to know. Family Tree Videos are also known as Video Memoirs, Family Documentaries and Legacy Videos.
Family’s share their stories in filmed interviews that are then edited together with family photos, documents, maps and other memorabilia. Titles, chapters, music and more are added throughout. The result is a beautiful “moving portrait” capturing a loved one or multiple family members recounting their memories – a modern-day heirloom families treasure for generations to come.
Best of all, Family tree Videos can be shown at family reunions, on Thanksgiving . You can even upload them to a family website. They are also easy to duplicate and share so every family member can have their own copy of the movie!
A few years back only professional movie studios, could do justice to any kind of documentary production. Not only was the cost and process far bigger in scope than what any one person could manage, but the subject had to have wide-spread appeal.
Today, there is a new type of documentary producer. One that works solely with families in order to capture their stories – real stories of real people. These documentary producers offer a way for families to preserve their stories so that they will captivate for generations to come.
What Do Family Tree Videos Include?
Family Tree Videos are designed to a family’s needs. Below are a few examples:
- Some families bring the family history to life by capturing several, more senior family members sharing their memories.
- Others keep the focus closer to the present by capturing the life story of a parent or grandparent as shared in their own words – from early childhood up to the present day.
- Still others choose to document a special family event or experience – such as summers spent on a grandparent’s farm – and begin a tradition that will inspire others to do the same.
There is no right way to preserve a family’s story. The is why a Family Tree Video offers such unique appeal.
