Have you ever thought about capturing your life story, family history and life lessons for your family and younger generations to know? In the past, people preserved their stories in written memoirs or journals. These days, the new favorite format is a Life Story Video.
What exactly is a Life story Video?
A Life Story Video is a memoir on video that captures you sharing your life story, family history and memories. Woven together with family photos and other memorabilia, the result is a beautiful “moving portrait”- a modern-day heirloom your family will cherish for generations to come.
Why are Life Story Videos becoming so popular?
~ It’s Easy! ~
Unlike a written journal, with life story videos you simply recount your memories and let the filmmaker do all the work. Stories are captured through filmed interviews and then skillfully edited together with family photos, documents, maps and other memorabilia. Titles, chapters, music and more are added throughout.
You simply provide the stories, photos and feedback to create the movie you envision.
~ It brings History to Life ~
Sharing your stories on video ensures that not only priceless information is preserved but your audience will have a chance to get to know you. Your storytelling will bring your experiences and family history to life in a way the written word often struggles to do.
When finished, the memoir is a truly captivating “moving portrait” – a gift your children, grandchildren and generations beyond will treasure.
~ It’s Easy to Share ~
Best of all, because Life Story Videos are in digital file format, they can be easily duplicated and shared. You can even upload the movie to a family website for family members to view and download.
And, while not too surprising, this visually captivating heirloom appeals to the younger, more screen focused generations of today.
