Reasons For Using Video Biography

By Karina Frost

Different people write biographies to document their life history and achievements. These biographies may be authored by the person himself or may be authored by a different person. Either way, biographies are an expression of life and achievement, either alive or dead. They have often been made in form of books, with technology however, video biography has become the new norm.

People tell their stories through video documentation in video biographies. These stories may include certain aspects of their lives or careers and other major experiences or events. Use of recorded biographies is important as it offers convenience and accessibility. Similarly to books-form biographies, those that are in record form may be auto authored or authored by a different person. In this case, recorded biographies of Isaac Newton and others who lived before this technological era are available.

People often use scattered and incomplete bits of information to try and understand their histories. It may involve going to the grandparents for stories or using old photos. The photos may not be even dated or sometimes you may not know the individuals in the pictures are. Other people use journals or diaries which have been left behind. All the options have limitations that video documentation has been able to overcome.

The process begins with identifying a company that offers the services of video documentation. Once this is done an appointment is scheduled and interviews organized. Individuals, families as well as businesses and foundations can access these services. Interviews vary on the people and the length but usually last up to two hours. The documentary has to be edited to remove information that is not necessary such as lengthy pauses or repeated information. Customization of colors and graphics is done based on the preference of the customers.

Histories of family are very crucial for the current and future generations. They offer the generations in future an understanding of where they have come from and the values their ancestors stood for. For this reason, biographies made for the family have interviews from every one in the family as well as their photographs capturing highs and lows of their lives.

Individuals can also create their own personal documentaries. Different people have different stories to tell including those of love, war and career. When recorded, they can be stored and used later as a memoir or gifts to people. Most importantly however, is that they can be handed down to future generations. Personal stories are meant to inspire but may also be used to earn money when they are sold.

Foundations and businesses may also want to document their experiences and stories. Launches of new products and branches and any other milestone the business has achieved are better documented. Sometimes, the employees are featured to create a people- feel of the documentary. They may talk of their experiences and hard work in the organization. This information becomes very important for the company in future.

There are different prices for the recording depending on how long and complex the story is. Out of town travel to record may also increase the prices. There are however, cheap options that are available for those with low budgets. This information is stores in DVDs that have a long shelf life. They may be custom printed based on what you prefer. Remember to outsource a professional company to record your story.
