Bring your story to life

Tell your story on video

We start with a conversation. Getting to know you and the story you want to tell on video is the first step in creating your family legacy. What do you want others to know about you? What memories do you want to share?

Let us help you develop your video memoir.

That’s what we do at Second Avenue Video.

With our years of experience in interviewing people we’ll ask you the right questions, film you in a comfortable setting, and incorporate the photographs, mementos, and films that will complete and round out your video memoir.

Creating your personal video memoir will provide you and your family with a lasting moving document and will be one of the most satisfying experiences for you and your family. You’ll be exploring your family history and sharing your thoughts and memories.

You have a story to tell. Let us help you tell it.

High-quality experience

Tell us about the story you want tell. Is it a family legacy video, a story about your grandparents or other family members and how they shaped your life? We include archival photographs and old film and video to create a full and rich visual story.

If it’s an anniversary video gift or a celebration … we do it all.

Helping you shape the story you want to tell — that is our expertise.

Take a look at our work. The professionalism and creativity we offer will bring you a video memoir that you will be proud of and that best conveys your message in the way you want.

Thank you for a superb job! When I first approached the oral history department at our local college, I never expected that this project, something I have been planning on doing for a long time, would turn into a professional, lasting, and in fact quite touching video. I’m so thankful that I was finally able to relate the stories which have been important to me. Now my children and grandchildren will be able to learn about their heritage and hear stories from my life and career that are meaningful to me and that I have wanted to relate for many years.

Thank you too for always being so prompt in responding to my questions, for your care in handling my photographs and mementos, and for your deep interest in my and my family’s history. I deeply appreciate the additional work you have done to complete the story. Your years of experience in documentary filmmaking, film production, and post-production clearly made a huge difference and helped to create a product of which I am very proud.
