Our Story ​

A few years back Life Stories founder Lisa Chait interviewed her grandfather on film as a record for her family. When people saw what she’d done they began asking her to do the same for them. So Lisa assembled a specialised team and formed a story-telling agency to record film, audio and text format Life Stories. Since then over 185 have been completed for clients of all ages – the oldest being 102! – with more on the go constantly.

“Our interviewees are often the only living family members who know the family story. When they are gone this priceless information is lost forever. We prevent this from happening and help our clients talk across time to future generations.”
