Professional Life Story Documentary Videos
Do you want to know more about your parents and grandparents or do you want to leave a legacy about your parents for your children?
Have you been unable to hold a traditional funeral service or celebration of life ceremony and wake for a loved one due to COVID-19 restrictions?
Are you looking for something special to commemorate a loved one for a memorial gathering?
Would a loved one struggling with memory loss benefit from a home movie all about their life?
'LIFE STORIES' IS A NEW SERVICE THAT BLEND MY PROFESSIONAL WORK AS A STORYTELLING HUMANIST CELEBRANT WITH MY PROFESSIONAL WORK AS A STORYTELLING COMMERCIAL VIDEO PRODUCER.
Using memories and media from friends and family, I create a 20-30 minute short film about your life or the life of a loved one, with a scripted, professionally recorded voiceover, licensed music, your photos and video clips for you and your family to cherish, share and keep forever.
Please click on the PLAY button on either of the videos above to watch a short excerpt of two different life stories documentary videos.
“The idea of a video life story is one that Rachael kindly offered to us following the death of my beloved husband Michael. Although it is something that any family would cherish following the loss of a loved one, it is particularly important to us as family during the current Covid-19 lockdown conditions, having been unable to hold a funeral in the normal way.
We will be able to use the video as part of a memorial service we intend to hold in the future, as well as being able to share it with close friends and family. Although we are currently overwhelmed with sadness, I wanted it to be a celebration of Michael’s life, and Rachael has most certainly achieved that.
I am particularly grateful to Rachael for her kind and compassionate approach in working with me in its development. Rachael has an engaging style, which helped develop an easy rapport and gave me confidence in the process at what is a very difficult time for me and our family and friends. The resulting video is professionally produced and conveys a real insight into the wonderful life that Michael lived and captures a real sense of who he was as a person. Thank you Rachel.”
With LIFE STORIES, I can create for you a beautiful, engaging and touching memoir with a personal touch. We have the skills and technology to weave together stories and memories written from our interviews with your family and friends, video soundbites from friends and relatives and photographs and video footage from your albums.
