Archive Productions preserves living history through video by taping oral histories. Future generations will be able to see interviews of both prominent and ordinary people describing their life experiences. We try to focus on older generations whose stories will be lost when they are gone. In addition to personal interviews, we also preserve artistic performances through video recordings. LGBTQ+ communities are a primary focus of this work.
We depend upon local volunteers to work on the productions. Cinematography students from Bay Area colleges donate their time to assist in videography, lighting, sound and editing. They gain invaluable experience in the production of projects while helping the community by creating these non-profit documentaries. While still in school they can build their resumes with experience gained from working on worthwhile productions.
