I made this movie for my mother's 70th birthday party. I wanted it to be very representative of her life. She and her sisters chat at the beginning telling the stories behind the pictures. Later my Dad comes in, helping her tell her story of the later years. My Mom is an accomplished pianist, and my dad is an accomplished flutist. All of the background music is their own.
My mother thanked me in an email saying:
"It's got everything-- the voices, the music, the family, the plays, the hikes, the parades, the family nights, videos and pictures of every stage in my life. Thank you, thank you for doing that and capturing all that wonderful life of our family. I was in tears at the end. "
