Who is Long Story Short?

photo_larry I started Long Story Short after 20 years as a film and video editor in the advertising business, where I edited commercials for companies such as P&G, Coca-Cola, L’Oreal and AT&T. But I wanted to do something that felt closer to my heart – personal history documentaries – the filming of a person’s life stories and experiences.

I am fortunate to have filmed my own grandparents’ personal histories before they died, and always thought of providing this special service for other families. In making these videos, I could not only use my artistic and technical skills, but also my sensitivity with others.

To make a long story short, I’m a good listener. I bring out the essence of a person’s life story with my interviewing skills. Now I am meeting friendly, interesting people, learning about their lives, and helping them carry on the tradition of storytelling in their family.
