From Shy to Shining: Tips to Help You Conquer Camera Shyness

Are you a little camera-shy, but considering participating in a personalized documentary? We get it – being on film can be nerve-wracking. We want to reassure you that your story is important and valuable, and capturing it on film can help preserve your memories and experiences for generations to come. And we’re here to make the process as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Here are some tips to help you feel at ease:

1. Your story is unique and valuable!

You’re one-of-a-kind, and we want to help you share your experiences with the world. By sharing your experiences, you can inspire and educate others, and help preserve your legacy for future generations. Your story is important, and it deserves to be heard. Plus, think of all the great stories you’ll get to tell your friends about being a movie star!

2. You are in charge!

You are in complete charge of the interview, and we can take breaks or pause the interview at any time if you need a breather. We all stumble through our words in real life, and it’s no different when we’re in front of a camera – there’s no shame in just starting over the sentence, or story. Think of it like a chat with a new friend (who just happens to be a really good listener).

3. It is okay to be camera-shy!

It’s completely normal to feel a bit camera-shy, but don’t worry – we’ve got your back! It’s natural to be nervous at first, but you’ll find yourself feeling at ease in no time, thanks to our supportive team and expert guidance. We have sat down with couples and individuals of all types of personalities and life experiences, and we have found that anyone is capable of overcoming that fear and sharing their story from their heart. Trust us, you’ll look and sound fantastic! Remember, it’s okay to be nervous, but you’re incredible, and you’ve got this – we’re here to help every step of the way!

4. The proof is in the pudding.

It can be helpful to see other couples or individuals in our films as proof that you can do it too! You will be amazed at how a little movie magic, like good microphones, some good editing with music and sound effects, and a few photos or videos to go with it, can really bring your stories to life. We have heard things like “my story is boring!” or “I think I’d bore my family to tears” many times. We can’t emphasize how untrue that is! Every person, including you, has an entire life of stories and experiences that make them unique. To your family, your story would never be boring. And when it gets told as a documentary, with music and special effects, there’s no chance anyone will sleep through it. Our team of creators knows that your story is extraordinary, and they will work to showcase that!
