Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The pressures of modern living make it all too easy to become disconnected from our families, both geographically and psychologically. Embarking on a project to capture your loved ones on tape will not only bring everyone closer together in the here and now but will create a legacy of memories for future generations. Under the sage guidance of Mary LoVerde in Touching Tomorrow: How to Interview Your Loved Ones to Capture a Lifetime of Memories on Video or Audio, we learn how easy (if time-consuming) it can be to help family members open up, share memories, and reveal hopes and dreams, and how to record these interviews on video- or audiotape.

From overcoming resistance to making the speaker feel comfortable, and getting it all recorded to making this heirloom-to-be uniquely your own, LoVerde offers instructions and tips as well as moving recollections from those who have participated in the process. LoVerde's extensive lists of questions are perfectly geared to get the whole thing rolling, and even if your discussions never reach the taping stage, you'll gain valuable insights and hear touching remembrances from your own loved ones just from trying out the interview procedures. --Amy Handy

I recently rediscovered Mary LoVerde's little book "Touching Tomorrow: How to Interview Your Loved Ones to Capture a Lifetime of memories on Video or Audio." Although Lo Verde's approach is unsophisticated, and somewhat simplistic, she recognizes some important issues that must be faced by anyone trying to draw information from another generation.

* Resistance on the part of interviewee
* Interview and Recording Techniques
* Drawing out the Story
* Creating the Right Questions to Make the Story Uniquely Personal
The nearly two hundred interview questions are a valuable resource for launching your interview approach.

The technical information provided with specific price ranges etc. may be outdated. I personally find the other tips and suggestions valuable enough to keep the book readily available on my reference shelf.

It had some useful tips, and I was happy enough with it. Anyone wishing to really get into making good video memoirs will probably need a little more, however.
