About Us

We are filmmakers, We tell stories with cameras.

Family Shorts specializes in making documentary-style short films starring families for screening at special events. 

Whatever the occasion calls for we provide script-to-screen solutions with a top-of-the-line professional look and sound.  We work collaboratively with each family to determine the story line and scope of the project. 

We know that every family has a story to tell with experiences and memories to be preserved forever. "Whether your looking to celebrate the present or document the past Family Shorts is the way to go."  

Family Shorts make special events, truly special.
