Millions of people have been collecting media of their family, but how many know what to do with it? Sometimes this media is in the form of outdated 16 mm film handed down in dusty boxes or frequently it's simply smart phone footage shot at a child's soccer game. Either way - the habit of collecting media but not producing it into an archival piece is all too common. This book will teach the user how to create a family history video, from start to finish, whether from mixed media formats over several generations or footage using the latest devices. Every aspect of the project will be covered in simple steps - from understanding and mixing formats, combining video and stills, storytelling techniques, audio, editing, and archiving. A companion DVD accompanies the book with projects and all the figures from the text.
