Here Carolyn introduces herself and begins the story of her life starting with her parents who were from Ireland. The entire, "Narrated Family Bio" ran 30 minutes and covers her childhood, schooling, marriage and children. This was produced by Carolyn's children for her 90th birthday. Carolyn's family watches the video every year now. Carolyn turned 97 last week.
This is an example of a "Narrated Family Bio" which is simply an inexpensive way of telling a visual story with photos, home movies and/or video but instead of full documentary-style on camera interview, the client provides commentary. This approach is less expensive because it deals with very specific time periods and events and most importantly it preserves the voice of the person and in this case, you see the client in the opening of the video.
