Many people want to be asked about their lives, but have no one to help them tell their story.
The Senior Portrait Films process offers this opportunity to older adults, and helps them create something both unique and rewarding.
Family stories live inside our elders: your grandfather can name each person in that old beach house photograph, your mother still knows grandma’s spoonbread recipe by heart. Senior Portrait Films captures these stories in a style that is warm, generous, and true to the voice of the storyteller.
In Senior Portraits, the visual craft of documentary filmmaking meets the tradition of oral history, creating intimate filmed vignettes that capture both family stories and the essence of the storyteller — distinctive gestures, a memorable laugh, that certain light in the eyes.
Senior Portraits are for seniors themselves and also for the sons, daughters, family, and friends who love them.
