What is a Video Biography?

A Video Biography, or personal history documentary is a detailed account of a persons life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, and relationships, but also portrays the subjects experiences of these life events in the subjects own words.


Unlike a Video Portrait, a Video Biography presents a subjects life story, highlighting as many various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experience, and and includes the essence of the person being immortalized; their facial expressions, their character, and the fluctuations in the subjects' voice as they recount their own memories.


Of course, as with any work Muskegon Video Productions performs, we can, and encourage the inclusion of pictures, important documents, animation, narration, and royalty free background music to really make a great impression for those who will view it later.

Meet Helen Donahue, an interesting woman with a very interesting life.

In this short sample clip, she speaks about her beloved father who practiced medicine before moving to Greeley, Colorado to help build trails through the mountains and hills.


This is a sample of what a video biography  looks like . As you can see, pictures are added and given a pan and zoom effect which enhances the story she tells.
