WHAT WE DO

We help people tell their life, family and travel stories in compelling video biography – documentary form.
Whatever your story, Life Story Pictures can help you bring your life’s evolution into the vivid color and sound of a video biography.

WHAT IT IS

Your video biography is about your story.  It is the story of your family and the people and places that shaped your life.  It is about people you love, and the way you affected the world around you.
It is about momentous travels that left an inerasable imprint.  It is about your life.

WHY DO IT

For your family and friends.  For yourself.  For future generations.
“Life is not that which one lived but that which one remembers and how one remembers to tell it.” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

“Now, before you make a movie, you have to have a script, and before you have a script, you have to have a story; though some avant-garde directors have tried to dispense with the latter item, you’ll find their work only at art theaters.” – Arthur C. Clarke2001: A Space Odyssey
