We were very pleased with every phase of the legacy video process. You were great and very helpful along the way. The crew who came to the house the day of the shoot were quite good at what they do, and they were fun people to have here. Out of all the material you had, we don’t know how you came up with such a well put-together finished product. We are very pleased, and, as promised, it is a great legacy to leave for our family. Thanks so very much, Steve.
I haven’t received my Oscar yet but everyone has enjoyed and complimented Charlie and me for our history! Not only family but neighbors too, who insisted on watching it.
I just watched my dad’s video and was very impressed. I know there was substantial editing, and it all came together beautifully. The photos were such a nice addition to the narrative. The sound and lighting were perfect as well. I am so happy to have this history preserved, especially now that there is a little one on the way to appreciate it. One of the hidden benefits of this project was the search for family photos to include in the video. I really enjoyed looking through them all with my parents, and labeling them for future generations. What a treasure! I am so glad we did this now. My father has been so inspired that he has taken on a new project – he found boxes and boxes of slides in the basement of his Illinois home and has been scanning them. He’s really enjoying it and it’s been great to see those old photos too.
To value one’s origins is to value one’s life. This legacy video will provide each generation a better understanding of their roots. It gave me a deeper appreciation of the trials and commitments my parents made during their lifetime. Thanks, Mr. Pender, for making this video possible and thanks Mom and Dad for sharing your story.
