Keep Your Family History Alive!

We changed our name so come join us there!
What's Your Story?
Have you ever thought it would be great if all the stories told by your grandparents could somehow be told again to you today?
Are you concerned that your generation or your children will never know about the values you were raised with or the family stories that got you (and them) to where you are today?
We know life can move too quickly sometimes to document these most important things in your life.
"I think how wonderful it would be to have video of my parents or of my late husband or of my grandparents. I'd give anything to hear their voices and watch them talking…" - Susan Owen, Tales for Telling, Kentucky, USA
SilverScenes Productions is a professional Personal History Videography company ready to help you document life's legacies. Read about our process.
“For the first time in my life I've felt that my past had importance and value to relate to my future grandkids. It gave meaning to my life to relate these stories and to feel they were of value.” - Janice S. ~ British Columbia
Making your own Life Story has proven to be a therapeutic experience as well; you will feel more peaceful about the fact that you have documented the most meaningful aspects of your life to your descendents for generations. Imagine a dvd series documenting your family for many years to come! Make us your tradition today.
Please enjoy our producer's interview on Rogers TV in Guelph for some personal history tips!
SilverScenes Productions can help you with more than your personal history too. Read on for more ideas on documenting your life.
Go on a House Tour!
SilverScenes offers a filmed home/garden tour where you or the resident can speak about the history of the house, memories in each room, and outside in the garden or landscape. You can include applicable photos, and have your valuables, antiques or collections filmed and spoken of in this unique film. The House Tour results in a wonderful family document, not only useful for insurance purposes (documenting valuables) but also for aiding in the stresses of downsizing to smaller accommodations due to failing health or other factors. A house tour keepsake can make the transition much easier. Take your vivid memories with you on film.
The best for your parents.
Others may be entering that stage of life where the kids are heading off to University or careers and concerns grow about our own aging parents. It's tough to be there to meet their needs, especially if they are far away. Your parent may ask you to assist in Funeral Planning and you don't know where to start to make sure their life is specially remembered. SilverScenes Productions promotes reviving the ancient tradition of the Ethical Will - recordings that document one's values, wisdom and beliefs to pass on to their loved ones and descendants. These DVD productions are a relief for many family members looking to make a service or wake memorable. The final product will aid family members for years to come as well as help with the many details of funeral planning. More than keeping a service bulletin, you can order extra DVD copies to make a memorable keepsake to those close to the remembered loved one.
A Tribute to honour them.
In addition you may be struggling with gift ideas for your aging parents. Why not get the family together and do a Tribute? SilverScenes Productions specializes in interviewing family members on film (including long distance audio recordings of relatives far away) to make the most memorable gift your parent or loved one will ever receive! Your Tribute will communicate the love, respect and thanks you feel for them in a most original, meaningful way. These are perfect gifts to give on special occasions.
Keeping it Real.
Providing options, flexibility and client comfort are paramount. We come to you in the comfort of your home, set up our equipment unobtrusively, and respect your need for scheduling changes. Some days are better than others and we can reschedule an interview for when you feel up to it. If we scheduled a location shoot on the golf course – and mother nature decides to water the grass – heavily – we can always wait for clear skies. We also realize that what may be meaningful for one person to record may not be as important to another. That's why we have options available – and customized DVD interviews and recordings available too. Tell us your idea today or see our Options. See an example of our most popular, the "How We Met" story.
Our mission is to change the way people are remembered. Even though they should be, Biography and History Channel aren't knocking on your doors, yet everyone has a history to document that will mean a great deal to their families. Everyone has a story to tell. What's yours? We want to hear it today.
Explore your options now before it's too late. See About Us on why this is important.
