TIME IN A BOTTLE VIDEO PRODUCTIONS™ interviews individuals, couples, families and groups about their lives. Our mission is to help to tell your story as only YOU can tell it—a particular interest of yours, a set of events or your entire life from your first memory to what’s going on right now.
Get the interviews done now. The rest—editing in photos and event video—can come later or, if you prefer, not at all. Think about your wedding video. You’re just glad you had someone there to capture it!
If you have regrets about "missed opportunities"—loved ones you wished you had interviewed on tape or film—you can still tell their story. After all, it's part of your story.
In its final form, the result is a professional, personalized video diary to enjoy and to share with family and friends—and hand down to future generations. It's a meaningful family heirloom that lets you share your life—people, places, things and how they shaped you—in ways that might otherwise be lost forever.
TIME IN A BOTTLE VIDEO PRODUCTIONS can help you find your "voice" for that autobiography you've been wanting to write. We can interview you about your life on video (or audio), particularly if you've been suffering from writer's block, and get you on your way. We can also refer you to gifted writers to help see your project to completion.
Photo Collages apply our storytelling technique to the creation of professionally printed and beautifully framed works of art and history for those special circumstances when video is just not available or appropriate—or as a gift for a very special occasion. Please see our Photo Collage page.
Creating an inventory of personal property is one of the things few people get around to. Please see our Video inventory page.
Consider putting this on your "to-do" list. It's not the kind of thing you should put off until tomorrow.
For special events...
A video diary is also a wonderful gift to capture milestone moments such as birthdays, christenings, first communions, Bar or Bat-Mitzvot, confirmations, weddings, anniversaries, retirements or reunions.
We also videotape these events but in interview style to get stories as well as footage of these precious moments you will never get back—please see our Special Projects page.
For people who want to handle the editing themselves...
TIME IN A BOTTLE VIDEO PRODUCTIONS can get your loved one's story "in the can". You can handle the post-production yourself.
