Home videos aren't a new concept by any means and documenting families in this fashion was a past-time that started the minute a home video camera could hit the hands of a proud parent. Remember when your dad had his 20lb camcorder anchored to his shoulder and left the tape rolling through the entire 8th grade graduation just in case you wanted to go back and watch 3 hours of kids (whose faces you couldn’t see) walking on and off a stage? This is NOT that.
We are incredibly lucky now to have smart phones that allow us to have a "camcorder" in our pockets, capturing moments here or there. But with that ease, short video clips on our phone tend to stay just that.
It takes some serious technology and talent (like Alex) to document, edit and tell your story - allowing the home movie to come back to life in an art form.
Vignettes will bring videos back into the home to cherish as works of art in addition to beautiful prints.
Then you can be thankful that you aren't watching a day of zoo animals, a parade from start to finish or your entire family opening presents from the neck down. These are home movies that are short enough to keep everyone's attention, but long enough to tell an emotional story (and you are actually part of the video beyond filming with a muffled voice that is too close to the microphone).
