LifeStories fade when the storytellers leave us. There are many ways to ensure the stories are kept for generations to come, but few bring LifeStories alive as a personal recorded history from the ones who experienced them.

“My father-in-law was diagnosed with the cancer that would later take his life. The LifeStory captured events and family history that would have been lost with his passing. The DVD was played at his funeral; it was the most rewarding and meaningful funeral reception I have ever attended. All the attendees were rewarded with a last look at his wonderful sense of humor, his love for his family and the history of his community.”

“Even though my father passed away six years ago, he lives on through the interview he and my mother gave to Mike O’Krent two years before his passing. Mike has memorialized and brought to life my parents’ rich experiences through his exceptional videotaped interview that my family has watched frequently.

Mike not only brings stories alive, but he brings departed family members to life through his wonderful interviews. If you have rich stories in your family – and we all do – do not hesitate to engage Mike.”

“[Mike’s] process of sitting down with the person and getting to know him or her before starting the recording put everyone at ease. I know Dad had a good time being the center of attention, too! ”

“Little did we realize that my husband would be diagnosed with a terminal illness just a few months after you completed our [LifeStory] video for us. Having your video helps me to remember his generous spirit, love for his family, his limitless humor, and high intelligence. He was one of a kind, for sure.”

“Mike O’Krent is a uniquely gifted documentarian. But moreover he is an exemplary human being who connects with people on a deep level, and brings out of them the essence of who they are.”
