“We just watched the video you produced for our 50th wedding anniversary party. What a great job you did in tracking our family history over the years, blending pictures and the interviews of our two wonderful children. You certainly captured the essence of our fifty years of marriage backed by the perfect musical background. Your presentation of our hobbies in music and art was right on the mark. We will treasure it always.

You're having a special event.
Maybe it's a special birthday, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, maybe it's a wedding rehearsal dinner.
Here's a way to tell your child's story. From a simple music and image montage that follows their lives from their earliest days, right up to the current day. Stories can also feature brief video interview segments with parents, siblings, mentors, etc.
"Collaborating with Bruce to create our sons’ B’nei Mitzvah video was a total delight. I had a few thoughts about what I wanted, but was daunted by the technical aspects of video creation and editing. He possesses all of the technical skills that I lack (and some that I didn’t even know existed!) and his manner is so pleasant and encouraging and kind. Bruce kept me on task, and was excited to share fun add-ons that took root in his creative mind and truly enhanced the project. What could have been a dry slideshow set to music, became a short film highlighting our wonderful boys and truly reflecting their individual personalities. Our party guests were blown away by the professional, entertaining and perfectly timed presentation and we now have an heirloom to cherish. The end product far exceeded my expectations."
The Process - We can come to your home to capture interviews in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Often, additional short on-camera segments with friends or other family members are created. These recordings are then edited, and interwoven with photos, old family movies, and music to create a unique video experience.
“Bruce had a knack for really bringing our family together and highlighting some of our most memorable experiences. He interviewed several of us to get a sense of who we were. Then used that material to weave together a rich and, in some instances, emotional account of our story. I think because he has been doing this for so long, he has a natural instinct for finding and focusing on the story. I particularly appreciated how carefully he listened to me and the variety of suggestions that he made along the way. My family was absolutely delighted. I’ve now shown it to many of my friends and they, too, are interested in doing something like this.
