Video Memoirs – Sharing Family History

A few weeks ago I travelled to Knoxville, Tennessee with my colleague Teddy to film the life-story of Peter Denton and his wife Bobbie. What a great way to capture some family history. It’s also a neat way to bring together clips from old home videos and photographs from albums that have been packed away for years and weave them into a meaningful narrative. Listening to different stories and being able to share these experiences is one of the huge perks of my job. I think creating a video-memoir like this would be a great family gift or just a simple way to leave your own legacy.
