Everyone has a story to share. We just make it easy.
We don't coaching clients on how to improve your writing. Our team do all the work of writing, because it's really difficult to do on your own. Looking at blank pages, being unsure what to include, what to leave out, or even where to start.
A gift that touches everyone.
Working with our team impacts everyone. Our clients have the opportunity to share stories that might not have spoken about for years or even decades. It is a time to sit, and have a conversation with someone focused on you, without judgement or interruption.
But it's so much MORE for the whole family. It's the chance for children to learn about who their parents were when they were young, for grandchildren to learn he was more than just a Granddad. And she is more than just a Mum.
So what do you actually do?
Clients talk with our Oral Historians to share their story. Every interview is guided by the team to ensure we cover the journey of a lifetime. No preparation in advance is necessary, though we always provide some general guidelines in advance of we do.
We use these interviews to create your written memoir. This is a beautiful book, your story, your journey, that you can share and read with your children, and generations to come.
After working through your story together, we bring a film crew to your home and work with you as we create your video memoir.
What is a Video Memoir?
Video memoirs are your chance to share your story on film.
It's your journey. Told by you - in your own voice.
Typically, your video memoir will last between thirty minutes to an hour. We create a series of mini films covering childhood, or falling in love, and bring these together with your photographs to create something your family will hold onto for ever.
There is nothing more powerful for your family than having this saved, hearing you, and being able to connect with you, even when you are separated.
