Local Filmmaker Launches
New Service to Share Family Memories
December 15, 2004, Vashon Island, WA.
SeaDrift Memories was launched this week on Vashon Island by SeaDrift Media
Productions. This service will use the talents of producer and filmmaker,
Robert Bornn and the interviewing skills of Life and Relationship Coach,
Laura Worth to help individuals, couples, and entire families immortalize
special memories in easily accessible and durable formats. They will
combine their digitally recorded interviews of today's family members with
cherished images from a person's past, family records, movies, and
audiotapes . They will work with clients to mutually customize a
story outline for relevance and affordability.
Says Laura Worth, "I believe every person
has stories to tell and every family has a "familylore" that creates family
cohesiveness. Finding and recording those special stories that get
told time and time again -- so that no family gathering is complete without
telling them -- that's what this service can do." Worth continues,
"Since moving here this summer, I've met people with deep roots on the
Island and I've heard them describe the culture here as "family."
I know that Vashon, too, has its lore -- the special stories that give
it's culture a "we-feeling." We'll be looking for opportunities
to record and share those stories in the community."
As Robert Bornn explains, "My goal is to
help reverse the dehumanization we are seeing in mass culture by supporting
people in celebrating the value of personal culture in a way that feels
good. That's the beauty of the hi-tech audio and video tools we have
at our disposal today -- we can use them to create work that speak to the
heart." He continues, "and this is the season to launch this kind
of service. People are home for the holidays and re-creating that
family-lore all over again every time a story gets re-told. We would
like to help this process along with our services."
Robert recently introduced his nonviolent,
nature art movie, Ocean's Edge-Spirit's Journey DVD on the Island.
Laura has recently moved her life and relationship coaching practice to
Vashon. Visit www.seadriftmedia.com for free samples of the DVD and
