“My family legacy video will remain part of our family lore that probably would have been totally forgotten if we had not proceeded with it.”
Raymond S.

 

Many of us spend thousands to record our wedding, a single day in our lives, doesn’t it make sense to take a few hours to record a lifetime?


About Us

Forever Film is a division of the Vancouver-based media company, Back Valley Road Productions. BVR producer Cheri Caleb created Forever Film after filming her own grandmother’s legacy video. Cheri’s intentions for making the video was to record her grandmother’s wonderful stories and family history. What she discovered though was the sense of honour and relief her grandmother felt afterwards. Cheri also felt a greater appreciation for her grandmother’s sacrifices and accomplishments after hearing about them as a whole, rather than pieces told over decades. It was after this experience that Cheri wanted to offer this service to other families.

Cheri Caleb has 24 years experience in marketing, news media and video production. She works with a group of talented writing, graphic design and video production colleagues.

Personal video biographies make wonderful gifts. We learn more about you so that we make a video that exceeds your expectations. We will help you prepare for the video in advance, and we interview you as we record you, so that you don’t have to worry about forgetting an important detail. Our lighting and our sound equipment will make you look and sound your best. The result is a polished video, posted privately to the web so that it can be shared with family and friends all over the world, and as a hard copy for your library.
