Family Videos – A Gift of a Lifetime — and a Fun Summer Project

Jillian Ezra at work
Mother’s Day recently came and went – and now Father’s Day is fresh in our minds. So what do you get the Dad who has it all?

Here’s a very timeless and “family-friendly†gifting idea that applies to all age groups, all generations: Create a family video, starting with a tribute to Dad.

As we grow older, our once crystal-clear memories of our children’s younger years tend to fade away in the madness of everyday life. Take the time now to sit the kids down and ask them questions about Dad, like “What’s your favorite thing to do with Dad?â€

Edit those answers together with videos and photos of the family with your favorite video editing software, and before you know it, Dad will have a piece of history that will make him smile every time he turns it on.

After Dad, it could be a video of grandma talking about life during the Depression. Or maybe it could be a video of a couple’s first few days with their newborn. Or maybe you have a family reunion coming up.

From special events to pregnancies to in-depth one-on-one interviews, the possibilities are as unlimited as the people you want to capture on film.

But doing this is another thing altogether. Who is going to organize all this? Who will hold the camera? What about sound? And proper lighting? And who has the time – and equipment – to edit all this properly?

Why not farm it out to a professional? That way it might actually get done. Ezra Productions, headed up by Jillian Ezra (who grew up on the Westside), specializes in shooting and editing family videos. These videos become true keepsakes and can last forever.

But most people wait till it’s too late to think about this, says Ezra. At some point, toddlers turn into teenagers, and grandpa is no longer with us. Mom and dad might seem like they’ll be here forever, but of course, they won’t.â€
