Living Memory Testimony Project

Living Memory Project

Every place has a unique story that shapes the people who lived their, we remember our parents warning us not to forget where we came from as they know having a busy life in a rapidly changing world can alter our beliefs in profound ways. High real estate prices create rapid transformations in our communities as older homes are demolished for townhouses and condos and family businesses are pushed out for chain stores. This is not simply nostalgia for the past but a desperate struggle to connect to personal roots in the community when they are rapidly disappearing. What happens when you return and that place does not exist anymore and more importantly what happens when no one is left to tell that unique story. The struggles and histories and defining moments that embed meaning into the place will disappear under the name of "progress" unless we fight to preserve that past which has such intrinsic value , do our children and grandchildren and generations that follow us have a right to that rich experience. The Living Memory Project helps us rediscover the places and people that have shaped our lived environments.

How the process works

How the Process Works

Step one - I  will record  personal testimonies of events and histories important to the client.

Step Two - I then edit the audio perhaps mixing in sound effects , I replay the audio with the client to approve each recording. Then I secure the recordings in the clients server (if one is not set up I can set one up, first year is included then its around $10 a month moving forward)

Step Three - We collect one digital photo per recording (if digital is not available I can scan an existing photo)

Step Four -  Once all this is done we post it online on the clients webpage as a permanent feature, we list on all podcast directories and engage in social media, press releases etc. This will attract the attention of locals and tourist worldwide , it is a modern way to display  heritage and very sexy for the younger generation. When people can easily explore the rich history of a place they naturally develop a curiosity about visiting that place.

Step Five - We also promote the project permanently on this website giving people the info they need to visit. We will promote using  social media and our podcast Conscious Landscapes as well as our network of over 50 radio stations.

Pricing

Optional Gallery - For an additional fee we can create  physical art pieces for display,  I can have the digital photos printed onto a canvas, have a small QR code printed on each that links to the audio. This can be done via any cell phone, the only requirement is that the gallery/hall  have free WIFI for patrons.

Pricing 

Each Memory project will be unique to the client, we can work together to tailor a project that suits your needs. You will find that investing in local culture will build a sense of community pride and bring a ten fold return on investment.

Testimony Art

 

How it Works - AV Testimony Art 

Testimony Art will be completely unique to you, no one can reproduce this gift or replicate the meaning and memory it will create. Together we will create something amazing, basically you send me a digital image of the photo you want to use, most people choose portraits but it can be any picture you find meaningful, here I have given an example of a photo of my partner in front of a mural I loved. We then set up an appointment for me to call  and record our audio file for the picture.

After the call I do edits, perhaps do a background music mix etc, once thats done I have your picture professionally printed onto  canvas with a small unique QR code in the bottom corner that links to your audio file. A bar code scanner app available for free on any cell phone can scan and play back the audio. This has been popular for couples creating anniversary and birthday gifts, for grandparents making a recording for the kids etc. We can even do some edits of audio that already exists if this is what you prefer, I did a wedding photo with the audio of the vows attached. All audio is kept on our secure servers, you get to hear a final copy of the audio before you sign of on the project.

The audio testimony would be around 5-10 min's, we have the picture and QR Code printed onto a 16 by 20 inch canvas for $425.00 plus taxes.

Once you purchase I will be in touch to get the process moving forward.

The Reviews

I wanted to do something special for our first year anniversary and then I found this website, I sent over the audio of our wedding vows and Stuart mixed them with some of my thoughts about our first year and then putting this a picture I picked out. It was the perfect gift that captured how I felt.

If you’re looking for a great place to get away and drown the noise inside your head and anxiety you feel, I recommend taking this tour! Stuart and his wife Sylvia were amazing. Not only could I breathe physically, but mentally as well. It was beautiful. The knowledge and history shared by Stuart and Sylvia was beautiful and insightful. I highly recommend, even if it’s for a once in a lifetime thing, or if you’d love to immerse yourself into nature!

I was super impressed with the whole experience, Stuart called me up and gave me allot of one on one attention in helping me form my message. He then did the edits and put together a wonderful art piece I presented to my spouse for his birthday, he was really moved !
