About the Family Stories Project

At the Family Stories Project, we believe that everyone has a story to share. With a team of professional filmmakers equipped with the pro equipment you might see on high end documentary sets, we offer customers a polished, expertly produced platform to share their family’s story so that it can live on for generations. We bring decades of experience earned on film sets across the country to capture cherished memories for families. And we do it for a fraction of the cost of other production services.
