Life Story Videos for Your Family

HOW IT STARTED

Maria and James Duke built their family while working in Silicon Valley.  James often heard the story of how Maria’s grandmother Ona shot 16 mm film of her children and grandchildren.  It took some work in those days to shoot and edit film.  From her childhood, Maria remembers Ona in the middle of a delicate slicing and glueing process and the smell of acetone.  Through that hard work her grandmother left a life story video legacy for her family.

When James first decided to make the Duke family life story video, Ona’s work was an inspiration.

After six feature-length video biographies for their extended family and the retirement from the hectic high-tech job, James decided to offer his life story video experience to other families.
