This week an article about the process of immortalizing one’s memories made it to a special Retirement section in the New York Times. My company, Legacy Multimedia, was prominently featured along with other projects and organizations that focus on the preservation of physical mementos and recording of memoirs.
For me, this is incredible validation of the work I do. The excitement I feel working with each new client, discovering who they are, what impact they have made with their lives, and then helping record that in video in a way that entertains and inspires future generations has turned this work into my life passion. To have the New York Times recognize this as a significant contribution to the field of retirement only validates that huge impact I and my colleagues are making in recording personal histories.
I hope everyone can read the article. It may only be a live link for a couple of weeks. After that it will get archived and disappear. Likewise, if you’re not a subscriber of the Times, there is a 10 article per month quota so you if you’ve read your 10, you may not be able to see this without either waiting or subscribing.
