Even on the Flip, your attempts at home movies are more than a little shaky.
But the husband and wife duo behind Slideshow Films (artist Sarah Reynolds and Getty Films director Stephen Reynolds) can make time stand still.
Over the course of two days, the filmmakers tread lightly to unobtrusively capture the humor, grace, and heart of your home. With a loose, personable vibe and minimal lighting setup, they’ll delicately shoot a day in the life of your family — and you’ll barely know they’re there.
Two weeks of professional editing later, your high-definition time capsule is delivered on DVD, ready to share with relatives, friends, and your future selves.
