CKV: The Light Family History
When making and recording this story, I used iMovie to put together my video and pictures. I recorded video with the camera app on my iPad. Once I got used to iMovie it was a good tool for this kind of project and I enjoyed messing with it to find the best ways to present my story. I had used it before, but used mostly pictures and no audio besides music. I started out the process of making this movie by interviewing my maternal grandfather, Keith Light. I chose him because my family has a deep history in Clearwater, KS (their hometown) and I wanted to record that history for the future so it wouldn't be forgotten. We used to be one of the main families in the area. We knew everyone and everyone knew us. Since then, most of the Light family has moved away and the town has grown by leaps and bounds. Our family is no longer as prominent, but we still have lots of history there to be remembered. I am proud of our history in Clearwater and wanted to hear the stories of how we started out there and record it for after my grandparents are gone.
