Our gorgeous family portrait… I write now to say how deeply impressed Family Documentary by Family Line Video I was by the Family Documentary you produced. Its editing, organization, technical quality, its consistent thoughtfulness made it truly first-rate, and it brought our parents’ and grandparents’ summertime experiences alive in ways I would have thought inconceivable. Incredible work!

Dear Susan,

The kids loved the video. We didn’t give it to them until Christmas. Every year we give them a “bonding” gift (something of significance that is the same for each of them) and according to them this was the best gift ever.

… Making the video was one of the best things we’ve done for ourselves and our children.

Dear Susan,

…I had wonderful memories of growing up and hearing the many stories I was told as a child. I wanted my children to have knowledge of this rich background that we shared.

Testimonials and life story videos by Family Line Video Chicago You guided me from the beginning, helping to sort my life into meaningful stages and to accompany these stages with the myriad of photos I had accumulated. You somehow kept me on track and from going off in every which direction. Aside from your creative work, your organizational skills were superb. You were a delight to work with and enabled me to connect my family history for many generations to share.

I can’t thank you enough.

Dear Susan:

I want to express how grateful I am to you for the video history that you recently made for me.

Recounting the details of my ancestors and the important events of my life was a very enjoyable and nostalgic experience for me. You are a true professional, and the final product is exceptional.

After I watched the movie, I decided to show it to my wife, several children and grandchildren. For the 45 minute duration, they intently watched it with deep concentration and without comment. Thereafter their comments were full of praise and appreciation that I had this done. They seem to have greater respect for me than they did before viewing the profile. Your video will remain part of our family lore that probably would have been totally forgotten if we had not proceeded with this.

Many thanks,
Raymond S., Illinois

I want to tell you how wonderfully the video collage added to the day of the party… It was awesome as table by table folks noted the video and, before long, every one was watching and commenting. Some of the folks pictured are no longer with us, and that sort of added to the day in a special way. Thank you again for yoru efforts!

‘The video slideshow project Susan put together for me was terrific. After skillfully overcoming several technical challenges presented to her by the project, she produced a beautiful and moving video. Only someone with both technical skill and artistic sensibility could have made our family history video so memorable. I would highly recommend her to anyone.’

Dear Susan,

I have shared your wonderful Family History Video with my family and everyone so enjoyed it and was just so thrilled to have such detailed information about our family. You did a marvelous job…!

‘Susan was such a pleasure to work with, and exceeded all my expectations: Having worked with a lot of artists and photographers in my time I’m used to having to fight my corner when the artistic ego rears its head. Not so with Susan. She was completely sensitive to my wishes, endlessly patient, and so ego-free that she made the whole experience FUN from start to finish. I love the result!! Susan does a first-rate job, is the consummate professional, and I quite simply could not recommend her more highly’.
