Podcast features Family Legacy Video®.
Family Legacy Video’s Steve Pender recently sat down for a lively chat with personal history colleague Amy Woods Butler, as a guest on Amy’s The Life Story Coach Podcast.
Among the topics Amy explores with Steve include how Family Legacy Video’s offerings have evolved since 2003, some of the ways Steve markets the company, as well as his 2018 multi-day legacy video shoot in Italy.
Where it all began.
I didn’t realize it way back then, but Family Legacy Video® actually had its beginnings back in 1995 and 1998. Those were the years I recorded and edited a personal history documentary featuring my paternal grandmother, Alice Rita Morrissey Pender. I was Gram’s first grandchild, and I felt a special responsibility to pass along her life stories to all the grandkids, great-grandkids, nieces and nephews who came after me.
Experiencing my family’s response to the video started me thinking about creating personal life story videos as a business. Years later, when technology and costs brought such video productions to a more practical level, I launched the company.
Family Legacy Video’s productions have evolved over time in terms of production value, running times, and complexity, but this video is where it all began. I recently posted Gram’s video online for my extended family to enjoy, and I thought you might like to take a peek as well. I hope you enjoy meeting this wonderful lady.
