People die,
but stories don’t have to.





Story Production

Welcome to LifeStories Alive. We produce living stories for families, nonprofits and businesses. A living story is a sensory story. That’s why we use video to capture unique sights, vocal expressions and familiar gestures. We interview your story originator, either the family member or founder, then integrate artifacts and deliver a documentary film.


Why LifeStories?

The people we love are going to die. But their stories don’t have to - that is a choice. We’ve captured hundreds of stories in more than a decade since we began. We look forward to meeting you and learning about the stories you want to capture.
