How do you safely store the product? 2018-04-09T17:57:24+00:00

We understand that the information contained within our life stories is highly sensitive.  We provide a digital file to the social worker involved on a USB stick to be given to the child, who is the true owner of the story.

We then store the file in cloud-based storage which can be accessed via password on our website.  The file is stored indefinitely and can be accessed at any time.

How do you represent people who do not wish to be filmed? 2018-04-09T17:56:57+00:00

We know that the events, feelings and memories involved in the time periods we are exploring can often be extremely sensitive and emotional.  Some family members and friends wish to be represented as part of a life story but are not comfortable being filmed.

We will always work with these individuals to find a way to make it work for them, whether that’s reading or displaying a letter they have written, or filming them as part of a conversation with a trusted person, rather than as a direct interview.

What does the finished product look like? 2018-04-09T17:56:35+00:00

Our life stories are filmed on high quality cameras, by experienced videographers.  They are authentic and true to life, and retain high production values without being over-stylised.  We film in people’s homes and in places that have great meaning to them, so aim to be as unobtrusive as possible, taking the minimum amount of equipment possible.

The life story includes music and colour schemes that are chosen according to the child’s preferences, and include quotes, commentary, interviews and footage relating to key people and events.
