What is a video-biography?

 

A video biography is like a biography you might read in book form, it tells the story of a life. The advantage of video is that is adds a rich texture of non-verbal information, such as body language and the sound of a voice.

 

Video biographies, like documentary films, may add supplementary still and moving images to provide context and flavor to an interview recording. This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight archival family photos, or views of landscapes or buildings that carry a special charge of meaning and memory.

 

Depending on your budget and your interests, you will have a number of options to choose from, including a website, documentary or set of custom DVDS.
