Movie-memoir Star

Whether you are a baby boomer (young senior) or a senior, this is a rare volunteer opportunity for you if you are ever interested in having a memoir of yourself so that you can share your legacy with family, friends and communities (including Memory Community) 🙂

Memory Community is dedicated to making movie-memoirs for elderly people. It’s a free-of-charge, donation-appreciated non-profit project and your memoir will be a documentary film, much better than a traditional written memoir!

By the Narrows Bridge

A well-established senior living facility in Tacoma invited us to discuss the establishment of a future collaboration on Friday, August 25. They are very amazed at what we do for helping elders leave a legacy. We are scheduled to have a meeting with them again in a couple of months.

The facility is near the noted Narrows Bridge of Washington state. “Bridge,” what a beautiful word that means to connect, and communicate. Memory Community Movie-Memoir is building bridges between older and younger generations.

Zhi Yin

Kline Galland, a well-established senior service community in Seattle, is very interested in our movie-memoir project. We had an initial meeting with them yesterday. Hopefully we will begin to serve their residents and clients in a couple of months.

We feel happy that there is always someone out there who is able to recognize our vision and is eager to join our mission, despite that it’s always very hard to find a “zhi yin,” a Chinese term for freinds who thoroughly and everlastingly appreciate what you do and who you are.

Memory Community’s vision and mission are focused on making movie-memoirs for seniors of all races and places.

Volunteer Opportunity: be a movie-memoir interviewee with us

A movie-memoir is a meaningful way to share your life’s stories, wisdom and experience, captured on video.

The filming is free of charge. In most cases, the filming takes as little as one day. Interviewees will sign a Release Form and will be compensated with a courtesy DVD copy of their personal movie-memoir. Your movie-memoir will be uploaded on our official website: www.memorycommunity.org, where you can watch movie-memoirs we have made for dozens of seniors since 2011. You’ll love them! If you won’t, feel free to reach us at deyung@memorycommunity.org or 360-8509850 to discuss how we can make your movie-memoir look great!
