Make the Past a Present for the Future
We can only understand our path by knowing where we have been. Your personal history is significant, and your family deserves to know the stories behind their origins. No matter how simple or grand, we all have our own TimeStories – our unique place in history.
Honor family and preserve legacy with one of our exceptional personal Biography or DocuMemory films.
(A Biography is made by documenting a living person. A DocuMemory is made by documenting family members discussing a departed relative.)
A TimeStories’ broadcast-quality motion Biography or DocuMemory ranges from choice interviewed recollections to visually exquisite productions mixed with personal photos and home movie clips, researched historical imagery, music, graphics – edited like a Ken Burn’s “movie-of-your-life”. This exceptional “life story” film builds a bridge between generations, creating a future legacy for the whole family.
Enjoy it today. Share it forever.
This biography turned out much more touching than I could’ve imagined. It has brought our entire family together.
A Box of Old Photos Tells No Tales
Old photos won’t speak for themselves. A personal documentary is the most distinct and timeless gift possible. They are fast and easy to make in only a few hours of your time. Once complete, everyone benefits – yourself, your family and your descendants!
All our documentaries are filmed at a leisurely pace in the location of your choosing. As long or as short as your story requires. Then, we edit the footage with your photos, adding music and special touches. Every completed movie captures the nuances and subtleties of character and embraces the true spirit of the subject. Your DVD master is chaptered for easy navigation and includes an archival CD containing digital copies of all the photos used in the production. Consider adding our premium-quality, bound, Story Album photo book as an accompaniment.
We are experts in obtaining your story. (Not being part of your family has a lot to do with it!) There’s no judgement, no embarrassment. Just honest history – private struggles and personal triumphs – saved from obscurity. Read more about our Process.
