Family Documentaries

Family Heritage/Biography Videos

The Family History/Biography Video documents your family's unique story with the professional polish of an award-winning documentary.  What a perfect way to capture the heart and soul of a family for the next generation to enjoy!



How we do it...

SVP Multimedia captures life stories and cherished memories through interviews recorded in HD video.  Our friendly and warm demeanor helps people feel at ease and encourages intriguing storytelling. The interviews are edited with photos and music to help family and friends jump back in time and understand and appreciate how previous generations lived.  Appropriate styles of music are added, such as '30s & '40s or '60s & '70s, etc. to enhance the stories of struggles and triumphs of romance, war, work, marriage, and family. This process takes approximately six to eight weeks. The finished project, delivered on DVD, Blu-ray and online, will be a legacy to share with family and friends, today and for generations to come.

Nestled in the serene hills near Minot, North Dakota in an ordinary-looking metal building is a treasure–not of gold, but of iron and steel.  It is owned by Bill Schriok, a man that is anything but ordinary.

This is a special place—for machines that produced much more than mere transportation. They were a reflection of the times in which they were built—from the turn of the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st–and were also a reflection of the people who drove them.

For Bill Schriok, his museum encompasses a lifetime of work, which he now willingly shares. Pick a favorite, he’s asked.  His response is simple– “That’d be hard, they’re all my favorite”.






This is a short clip of the ending of the production "By the River: The William Hanson family remembers the early years at the Logging Camp Ranch". Featuring Robert Hanson, William Hanson, Victoria Hanson Stegner and the late Louise Hanson Kopseng.  Why not watch some of our videos online and discover how you can produce your own legacy in film.

Filmed on location during the Hanson Family Reunion August 12-13, 2006. Hosted by John & Jennifer Hanson at the Logging Camp Ranch, Amidon, ND. This project was made possible through the archival interests of the entire Hanson family.
