Create A Personal Documentary- A Unique Gift To Keep Forever


Jonathan Crane is an award winning BBC TV documentary producer with a brilliant new idea – helping individuals, couples and families to celebrate their life on film. Crane’s brainchild, The Personal Documentary Company, creates beautifully crafted ‘this is your life’ films, for families to watch whenever they like on DVD. Using interviews, family photos, old cinefilm and favourite pieces of music, The Personal Documentary Company creates lasting legacies of loved ones that will be treasured forever.

Families are the most important parts of our lives. But too often we let precious family memories slip away unrecorded. Our children grow up all too quickly, we let time fade the memories of special events in our lives and most of all we wish we’d talked more to elderly relatives about their lives and memories. Now, The Personal Documentary Company can capture those memories and preserve them forever on DVD.

Personal Documentaries can range from 20 minutes to over an hour, and are delivered in personalised DVD cases. Prices depend on the nature and ambition of the project and start at £3,000 for a basic format.
