Protect your past with Historical Society preservation workshop tonight

Are your precious family photos socked away in the attic? Do you have miles of  eight millimeter film collecting dust in the back of your closet? Well, it’s the stories behind these images that really matter, and there’s no time like the present to make certain that your family stories endure.

Discover the latest trend in organizing and preserving personal histories with five-time Emmy Award winner Peter Savigny of TimeStories. Mr. Savigny’s program will center on how to preserve family memories through his “Ken Burns”-styled life story films — a fast, easy and rewarding way to chronicle family history and connect future generations with their past.

Mr. Savigny produced all of the video segments for the Greenwich Historical Society’s latest exhibition, From Italy to America, and will share examples of these as well as projects documenting the lives of individual clients. He is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York and has spent more than 20 years in design as a creative director with a focus on motion graphics and narrative storytelling.

He has worked with an impressive roster of clients, including PepsiCo, the NBC Olympics, ABC News and CBS Cable, as well as the History, Lifetime, A and Discovery channels. His company, TimeStories, also produces corporate heritage documentaries, tribute films and children’s “kidography” movies.

The event takes place tonight, April 18, at the Greenwich Historical Society, Vanderbilt Education Center, 39 Strickland Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served; program begins at 7 p.m.

Admission is free but reservations are strongly suggested. Call 203-869-6899, ext. 10.
