Hi there! Thank you for checking out Memoir.
As founders, we created Memoir because we needed it for our own families. We knew that other's needed it too. We have aging grandparents who we can't see often because of distance or health reasons. Over the past year, we felt even more strongly that life is not guaranteed, and we need to do everything we can to appreciate it while we can.
Our families' stories, their individual lives, and their personalities is one of the most priceless things we can try to preserve. Preserve for ourselves in the future to look back on, preserve in case they are no longer here to tell their stories, and preserve it for future generations to understand where they come from. We know that if we don't try to preserve, it won't be done, and we will regret it.
We feel we need more than just the photo albums, ancestry data, or journals that may exist (don't get us wrong, those are great too). The thing is that nothing quite captures the essence of a person like video can. We are people with lives and stories, and capturing this matters so much. With video, you can see your loved ones personality, mannerisms, their smile, maybe even a laugh.
This is what Memoir is all about.
We're making it accessible to capture priceless high-quality video of your loved ones by coming to their retirement residence and conducting short, professional interviews. Then, by delivering a final product that isn't just another file on your computer, we can ensure the longevity of those stories.
We thank you for your interest in Memoir, and for allowing us to work with your family to capture precious stories.
Milton, Matt, Gareth
