After seeing the video Steve produced for my in-laws, I couldn’t wait to get his hands on my own parents’ treasure trove of family history and memories. I knew that by enlisting Family Legacy Video,Inc. we would receive a wonderful, beautifully produced, and content-rich video. What I didn’t fully appreciate was the extent to which Steve would capture the details, memories, and emotions that were unlocked all along the way. The final product is much, much more than the sum of its parts, and our family is so grateful for Steve’s production talent, as well as for his incredible ability to capture and distill deeply personal stories. In addition, Steve researched and uncovered images and video we had never even seen before! It was such a treat, for example, to watch a 13-second clip of my grandfather crossing the finish line at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, which Steve found buried in the International Olympic Committee’s Archives. A Family Legacy Video® is a gift that will keep giving for generations to come.
Steve Pender and his crew from Family Legacy Video® were consummate professionals from start to finish of our project.
Steve and his crew faced many challenges in gathering historical documents and photos, organizing feedback and scheduling our family’s documentary video. The whole process from start to finish was flawless and effective. The Family Legacy Video® group honored the timelines they set, budgets discussed and helped maintain a normal daily flow in the household all while getting the job done.
The end product resulted in a valuable, well put-together documentary for our family to enjoy for years to come. I would recommend Steve and Family Legacy Video® to anyone considering preserving their family memories in this format.
Many thanks for putting together a great production that Ken Burns would have been proud of. My dad said it was the best present he has ever received.
Steve, thank you for a wonderful job on my video biography. I was impressed with the professionalism of you and your crew. I especially liked the way you supplemented the photos and other visuals I gave you with archival photos and films that really helped illustrate my personal and business stories. I’ll be proud to share my legacy video with my family and friends – and to recommend Family Legacy Video® to anyone wanting to preserve, celebrate and share his/her life stories. Mahalo!
