Documenting life stories for families and communities
life-story video documentation -
An empowering gift that says thank you to a wonderful generation
A person who has documented his story feels complete. As the family watches his story on screen, grandpa is once again the protagonist, he passed on his roots and heritage in his words, through his voice and smile.
As a social worker and documentarist for seniors, I've been privileged to document over 100 individuals, couples and communities.
It's an attentive process results in a live product- a video for future generations. Your gift is my mission!

Live memory for generations
Making family heritage accessible to future generations - in voice, smile and look. There is nothing more exciting than watching life stories of your loved ones together, today and for years to come.
It's important to hear the story of our loved ones with sensitivity, open heart and empathy. I bring my knowledge and experience as a social worker for the third age to each session.
A significant process
With the experience of over 100 life video sessions I know how valued the narrator feels when they are at the front of the stage. Give the elders a significant gift.
Yoav Arnoni B.S.W
I am a documentarist and social worker for the elderly. My mission is Documenting the older generation with sensitivity, love and a sense of mission, understanding that there is a unique and historical generation here, that now is the time to thank them.
From my experience - a correct process of sharing their life story benefits the person inwardly, it fills with a sense of satisfaction and value. Our will to hear and perpetuate, gives parents and grandparents a sense of value and meaning, knowing we'll remember them for years to come - at the push of a button.
It has been a privilege for me to connect between he generations - These are the true forces of life .
"Our parents have a unique and exciting life story, save it for future generations as a legacy through live documentation"
