Why commission a personal history documentary? For some, it is the perfect way to honor one’s elders and preserve their stories, images, and essence for younger generations. Siblings connect to create a precious heirloom for their parents and themselves. Treasured family history comes alive in an artistic and meaningful way, allowing future generations access to the treasures of the past.
Others seek to record their own history—to give family and friends a memento of their lives, to recount the tale of one’s career or of building a business—a memoir to pass the wisdom of one’s life to future generations. Still others seek a video tribute to be shared at an important event—a birthday party, anniversary celebration, retirement roast, wedding, rehearsal dinner, bar/bat mitzvah—these can document individuals or couples, and are a touching, fun way to celebrate life’s most joyous events.
