Creative and unique storytelling techniques in film will keep your audience on the edge of their seats, waiting to see what happens next. Imagine your family history becoming an interactive story with scanned and organized photographs, restored and ordered to keep on display; films restored, reorganized and transferred for easy viewing on social media, computer or digital frames. Those old mementos from a forgotten time can be brought out of the dark and incorporated with your photographic storybooks or displayed in some other fashion. We guide you on how to bring  your family story to life!

Visual Stories

Every family is unique, of course, and each family has a different story to tell. Just because certain items do not seem to go together, does not mean that they shouldn’t. For example, a reinvented family history album can include both antique and new photographs of your present family. New insights can be made when viewing these pictures side by side. Who knew, for instance, that your daughter resembled great-great Aunt Esther to a tee? Or old film reels from the early part of the twentieth century can be incorporated into a present day digital story of your family. Imagine the comparisons that can be made. What a rare and one-of-a-kind way to keep your family history on view for everyone!

Perhaps music was a part of your family’s history. An entire video family biography or personal story can be designed in a personalized way to reflect who your ancestors were with music, animation, unique titles, narration, new and old photographs, film, important papers can all be put together to create a specialized family biography. If you’ve ever viewed a Ken Burns documentary on PBS, you’ll get what a family video biography can be like. As the narrator speaks, the viewer is looking at old film footage, static photos of days long gone by, some present-day interviews, perhaps newspaper headlines or brief articles are shown, and there is music weaving itself throughout the entire production. This is what your family history video can be like if it is produced by our studios.

Classic Storytelling Techniques

The storytelling filmmaking techniques we use at LS3 Studios are unique. We have added a twist to the classic storytelling techniques. While creating the personal stories for people from all walks of life, LS3Studios has discovered that each family has a unique story to tell, many of which are emotionally touching.

We conduct video interviews with your family member using our proven narrative techniques. It should be in a comfortable and familiar setting where he or she can relax and tell his or her story with no nervousness about being in front of a camera. When all the elements are put together to form a touching visual story for the family to own, it can sometimes be so close to the heart, they often bring tears to the surface. These can be tears of joy at seeing loved ones tell their powerful stories or upon viewing those on film who have gone to the other side. Either way, it thrills each family who has a video biography created by LS3Studios to have a piece of the past now and forever.
