Legacy Captured Through Video

Jewelry, furniture, art, photos, ceramics and crockery are all very special heirlooms to pass down to your children and grandchildren. But what could be more precious than a professionally produced video of your life story told in your words for your loved ones to cherish long after you’re gone?

At Family History Studio, we love helping people tell their stories, and we want to hear yours!

About James Howard

James Howard headshot black and white 2

Family History Studio Founder and Documentary Filmmaker James Howard has produced his own documentaries in Canada, Mainland China, Taiwan and Central America.

He has shot for the CBC and Beijing Television; has produced several promotional, educational and short biography videos, including an award-winning environmental short in Beijing he narrated entirely in Mandarin.

But it’s the two biography videos he did of his father and grandmother that hold the most meaning to him.

Now, at Family History Studio, he wants to use his experience and expertise to help bring the same joy and meaning to you and your family.

“I see this venture as a calling, really. I love helping people tell their stories. It is a passion of mine. One thing I have learned from interviewing people around the world is that everyone has a story to tell, and it’s an honour and privilege to help them tell it.”
