9 tips to get started with do it
yourself (DIY) video
BY DEANNA SHOSS

S

tories can bridge generations in seconds. I think
of how my son recovered from a horrible first
date at age 14, after sharing the story with his
grandpa. Grandpa commiserated with a 70-yearold story of his first date...a blind date with a
Sally Frankenstein. They laughed so hard as they
comforted each other.
That's the power of stories to connect
with each other. Whether it's a first date,
the day you got your first bicycle or a
story of family lore. Stories of shared
experiences build bonds.
More and more people are
consuming stories on video.
In fact if you are thinking
of writing down your
memories, According to
Wordstream, "59% of
executives say they would
rather watch a video than
read text." And that's the adults.
For teens, according to the American
37 GRAND

MAY JUNE 2019

Psychological Association, in recent years 20%
reported reading a book for pleasure, while 80% turned
to video and social media.
Meet your grandchildren where they are, by
recording your stories on video.

What are the stories that you want
to share?
Of course the ideal scenario is
sharing stories every chance that
you get, in person. But it doesn't
always happen. Maybe no one
has asked you about your special
memories. Or there's just no time
when family is finally together
because of sports or plays or
other activities. Big gatherings
might not be well-suited to
intimate storytelling.

Video may seem intimidating.
But with your love and
authenticity and a cell phone
camera, you can create a story video
that is not only good enough, but
great!
Why wait for the perfect opportunity when
you can practice and film a great story right now?
All you need is a smart phone--your own or make it
fun by getting together with friends and filming each other.
