Local Filmmaker Launches
New Service to Share Family
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
