Black and Jones Media was born out of a love of two things – videography and family. It all started one day when Jye, a highly skilled professional cinematographer, decided to sit down his Grandfather and interview him about his life. He thought it would be special to have a video to look back on in years to come and to even show his own kids one day, so they could learn about their history and where they came from.
He edited the video with old photos and videos, piecing together a 25 minute masterpiece of his grandfather’s life. The family found out things about him that they never knew, and were able to capture wisdom and stories that will be passed down for generations to come.
Daniel and Shae jumped on board to help film the next piece, for Shae and Jye’s other Grandfathers 90th birthday. Again the family had an extremely moving and emotional experience.
The trio then decided that this was something special and coined their first and signature product ‘Chronicles’. Everyone deserves to have their story heard and what better way to tell it and honour our loved ones than through a beautiful short interview style film?
As they say, if a picture is worth 1000 words, a video… is priceless.
