Family Story Video Production

Family stories are a common theme in film and video. They are often used to tell a story of the past. The family story can be told through memories, photos, or by creating an emotional connection with the viewer. These stories often have a resounding experience towards the writer or director in their life. Be it about their family, somebody’s family they knew or just a family story they want to tell.

Family Story Video Production by Vivid Snaps

We had the opportunities to tell family stories through videos for our clients. Fiction or nonfiction, we have produced heartfelt stories that we are proud of. In this segment let’s dive into some of these films. 

The Unexpected

Life is full of surprises. Sometimes it is the unexpected that hits hard, bringing us down. Based on a true story, we were able to re-enact an event that occurred to a local family. Setting up the scene wasn’t like usual. Lighting was the most crucial element as it sets the mood and time of the day. We used special lighting techniques to enhance specific elements in the frame of the shot. Like creating a lamp light effect in the bedroom scene. Handheld camera effects were important as it helped to give the feel of the character’s movement. 

Disability Blindness Family Story Video

Most of us have a unique story of our family, and these stories form an important part of our lives. In this emotional family story video we did in October 2022. The story is told through the daughter’s point of view and flashbacks from the past. Seeing her father deteriorate through his suffering from diabetes and how the family copes with it during those tough times. 

Audio was important in this video as it has a number of dialogues. We used a couple of methods to clean up the voice recordings. The music piece that we have chosen, compliments the visuals to evoke lasting emotions to the audience. A bunch of off screen sound effects were used in this film to tell more than visuals.

The Greatest Gift

As a child we would always wish we could get what we want without thinking about how much it cost, how much effort our parents had to work in order to make us happy. Even when our parents could not afford it, they would think of an alternative similar to what we wanted. This short film celebrates the greatest gift we could ever receive, love.

A Life Long Lesson

In life we would always make mistakes. Sometimes these selfish mistakes cost us everything, teaching us a valuable life lesson we would never forget. In this cinematic shot film, we dive into a young boy who made a selfish mistake of wanting a bicycle that his family couldn’t afford. Through his rebellious actions, it caused the family to lose everything. The film is shot with primarily low key lighting. Setting the mood and tone of the scene. The film also explores a variety of unique camera angles such as bird’s eye view and worm’s eye view.

Family Story Video References from Around The World

When people think of family stories, they usually think of their own. But what about the family stories of other people around the world? This is what filmmakers are trying to explore in this new genre of storytelling. These stories can also be found in commercial advertisements which companies use to send an important message while promoting their products. In this section, we will explore how filmmakers are using video to capture the memories and experiences of family stories around the world.

A powerful message behind this Thai commercial advertisement speaks heartfelt emotions to audiences. A runaway daughter who takes things for granted and wants her own space eventually finds a plate of fried rice that brings her home, realising that her mother is doing the best she can for her. The film uses a couple of warm spacial lighting in the home scenes combined with uplifting music pieces that compels both audio and visuals.

Animated Short Film

Making it back home to your loved ones is the most important thing for parents towards their child. A team of CGI artists created this animated piece of work conveying the message of love and family. The story is about a little girl who is waiting for her father at sea. But the weather is taking a turn for the worst and there was no sign of him. This film sets a reminder to us that someone is always thinking and waiting for us to be home.

Family Story Short Film

Time is the most valued currency in this world. However much time we spend, it will never return. In our times now, we are so hooked on to our mobile devices and entertainment systems that we miss out on real quality time with our loved ones. This film depicts moments where we put self interest over what is really important. Our family members, once gone, will never return. It is essential that we spend some time with our family every now and then as we might not know when it’s the last. 


Filming the family story is a way of preserving memories and documenting history. It is also a way to share your family’s story with others. The videos can be used in different ways, such as telling your children about their grandparents, or sharing it with other generations.

The importance of these videos is that they provide an insight into a family’s history and culture. They can also be used to teach children about their roots and heritage which can help them become more confident in themselves in their later years. It does not take much to make a family video.

A common misconception is thinking that a lot of equipment is needed to videotape a family video but in actual terms, all we need is a camera or a phone unless you are doing it for a corporate company/commercialised. It is also essential to note that the visuals and sound of these videos are important to capture the emotions that make up the experience of your family’s story.
