Since 2007, Susan has run Family Line Video, LLC as a true labor of love, personally handling all aspects of production, from filming and editing to interviewing and research, treating each family’s stories and artifacts as though they were her own.
~ My Story ~
Growing up, I loved listening to my grandparent’s stories. They provided a peek into bygone eras, brought family history to life and were filled with priceless pearls of wisdom. Their stories gave the past meaning and a sense of connection to the present and future.
After having my own children, I understood the importance of passing on family stories but also the fickle nature of memory and good intentions.
It was from my own regret that I decided to help others preserve their stories before they too realized their memories had faded. It was also important to find a format that would speak to younger generations while helping them to connect with their family story on a personal level.
The solution: A ‘Moving Portrait”, bringing together filmed interviews with family photos, documents, maps and other memorabilia. A Family Documentary or better known as. Legacy Video.
After learning how to professionally film and edit, I launched Family Line Video, LLC in 2007.
