Video biographies can be created to celebrate the life of your loved one and paying tribute to their story. A well-documented video biography can preserve your family stories and be passed on as an heirloom for generations. 

However, there are many baseless myths and misconceptions associated with producing a video biography that discourages many from documenting their loved one’s life. To help you steer clear of such misconceptions and reap the benefits of getting a video biography produced professionally, Family Voices Media has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about vide biography.

Myth 1: All family stories are similar.
Some families are immigrants, some have rags-to-riches stories, while others are long-standing members of a particular community that shapes their lives. Every family has its own story that defines it and should be saved for the future.

Myth 2: Making a movie about parents’ lives is difficult.
Many clients who wish to make a movie on their parents’ lives are dissuaded because of this misconception. They think that making a video biography on someone who doesn’t have too many pictures from their past is impossible. However, it’s not true. With today’s technology, we can readily make a full-length biography complete with interviews, photos, and music of anyone, including elders. 

Myth 3: Biographies can be cheaply made.
Making a biography on the cheap is a mistake we’ve seen many clients commit. They believe that cutting down on the costs when making a video biography won’t affect its quality. However, if you want a high-quality biography, you will have to spend considerably so that your videographer can use industry-standard equipment and premium methods.

If you want to steer clear of these and other myths related to video biography, reach out to Family Voices Media. As a leading video biography company in New York, we can help you create a biography that narrates your story expressively. Our passion for storytelling and filmmaking enables us to handle your work with care and professionalism and deliver results of great finesse.
