What are Family Tree Videos? A Family Tree Video captures a family’s stories and history through filmed interviews for younger generations to know. Family Tree Videos are also known as Legacy Videos, Family Documentaries and Family History Videos.
The filmed interviews are woven together with family photos, documents, maps and other memorabilia. The result is captivating “moving portrait” that brings a family’s stories and history to life in a way the written word often struggles to do.
Best of all, a Family tree Video can be posted to a family website, presented at family gatherings and easily duplicated so everyone can have a copy of the movie for their own!
From Public Space to Private Lives
A few years back only professional movie studios, world renowned film makers, and documentarians like Ken Burns, could do justice to any kind of documentary production. Not only was the cost and production process far bigger in scope than what any one person could undertake, but the subject matter had to have wide-spread appeal.
Today, however, with technological advances, there is a new breed of professional documentary producer. One that specializes in working solely with families to capture their stories – real stories of real people – in their own words. These family documentary producers offer a way for people to preserve their stories in format that will captivate for generations to come.
What Does a Family Tree Video Include?
A Family Tree Video is designed to a client’s needs and can be whatever a family wants it to be. Below are a few examples:
- Some families focus on bringing the family history to life by capturing the memories of several, more senior family members.
- Others keep the focus closer to the present by capturing the life story of a parent or grandparent – 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 an individual’s or family’s story. That is why a Family Tree Video offers such unique appeal.
