We just viewed the DVD production of my parents’ life story. We are overwhelmed. The presentation and quality far exceeded all my expectations! This is now one of our most treasured belongings. Our children, and all family members now have a beautifully recorded history of a most important story. You are a true professional and we appreciate what your company has provided us. It is, indeed, PRICELESS!
My husband and I watched the video you made of my parents. The quality of the visuals, the sound, and the way you had my parents so relaxed and comfortable was well displayed in the video. I’m glad that there are companies like yours that can preserve family stories from generation to generation. This will be a lifetime gift for my family forevermore and for our families to come. Thank you for making my parents’ legacy a gift to our hearts.
I can’t even begin to tell you what amazing job you did on my mom’s video and how appreciative and touched I am. I am especially impressed with how you managed to fit in all the photos I gave you. Wow. I also really liked the intro and the ending. Every single name was spelled correctly, and with a lot of those complicated names, that’s impressive. Again, your work has exceeded what I ever imagined it would be – I am so pleased!
I have just finished watching the “Rosen Family” DVDs with my immediate family that included both my sisters, my son and my five nephews and their wives. We all were so touched and thrilled in seeing our mother, father, aunts and uncles and especially our grandparents (who many of us did not know) on video. They became so real and alive for us. Learning about the history of our family and the many before unheard little stories, all the details were thrilling. Seeing the pictures of all our relatives and getting to know about them somehow brought us closer together. I will be interested in talking to extended family, our cousins, after they see it and share our thoughts and feelings about “OUR FAMILY.” We so enjoyed the way that you created this. My family and I want to express our gratitude to you for this incredible and never to be forgotten experience that we can hand down to our children and grandchildren.
To date we have distributed over thirty-five copies of my mother’s video to family members. We started with our close family, Mother’s younger sister and sister-in-law. After the word got out to the cousins, we were inundated with requests for videos from other family members. Mother’s only surviving sister, who is seventeen years younger, was not aware of the Washington adventures and many other items that the three older children had experienced. Mother and her sister are now much closer because of the video. Many nieces and nephews with whom she’d had little contact are now in touch with her again. Thank you for providing us with a Family Legacy Video that will be passed down and enjoyed by our family throughout the coming generations.
I just wanted you to know how much we have enjoyed the video of my parents! You did a wonderful job. It is a memory we will cherish forever. Thank you for sharing your time with my parents and thank you again for your fantastic work.
I’ve wanted to produce personal histories for my family and some women I know for years now, and this is the year I’m finally going to take action! I think it’s great that you have produced such a quality product and are offering it at such a reasonable price; you probably could have charged several times the amount for your producer’s CD and the music clips. The fact that you chose to keep them reasonably priced tells me that you are more concerned with families actually getting their histories recorded than in “making the big bucks.” I’m really glad to have found your site!
Having watched and absorbed the information in your Producer’s Guide I now feel well equipped and confident that I can produce a video biography which my family will be delighted with. I had previously been worried about how to begin such an enterprise. The Producer’s Guide covers all aspects of the production process. I can’t thank you enough.
Your workshops were wonderful. You not only gave us the hands-on knowledge of how to create a legacy video, but shared with us your years of experience using film, music, and user-friendly computer programs that make editing possible for even normal people like us. You turned what could have been a daunting technical task into a fun-filled family project. Tom and I now have been collecting archival data and family photos from his family in Boston and mine in Michigan and California. We plan to make two family videos right now, one for each family. I think we might just be ready to give them as gifts for Christmas. Thank you for helping us make this happen!
I think your Guide and Music products are wonderful. They’re a gift for my sister, who has been hounding all of us (grandparents to grandchildren) to tape our stories. This will really help her out and accomplish what is so important to her. I’ll give her a copy of your “45 Questions” article as part of the gift when my order arrives. I wouldn’t be surprised if you hear from her at some point!
