Documentaries

We Preserve History for Present and Future Generations!

Our documentaries cover a wide range of subjects. We write and produce video documentaries for families, museums, and corporations. 

We recently completed the installation of a major documentary project in Laredo,Texas shown below. This project included the production and installation of an interactive, touchscreen kiosk that housed a nine minute video documentary which we wrote and produced. The kiosk included a motion sensor that triggered a welcome message when someone approached the kiosk. Upon touching the screen the video documentary begins to play. The installed documentary paid tribute to the life and times of A.M. Bruni, one of the major historical figures in the development of the city of Laredo. The kiosk was installed in the Bruni Plaza Library lobby along with a static display, which we developed, highlighting Bruni family artifacts and photographs. Click on any photo below to enlarge and view.

The above excerpt shows the first 7 minutes of a 30 minute documentary written and produced for our local museum to celebrate Veterans Day, 2017. I met with family members, researched historical books and sites on the Internet, collected personal letters, family photographs, movies, and historical memorabilia and then wrote and produced the documentary. This documentary focused on Cecil Newman's life, letters he wrote to his girlfriend and later wife, his wartime travels, and the unusual circumstances surrounding his capture and death.

The above excerpt is the first 6 minutes of a 30 minute documentary written and produced for our local museum to celebrate Armed Forces Day, 2016 and to pay tribute to John Green Ellzey, a local soldier killed during World War II. The documentary focused on his life, letters he wrote to his mother during the war, his wartime travels, and the unusual circumstances surrounding his death. The documentary was well received and highly praised by all who viewed the documentary.
