and inspire future generations of your family...
In this live webinar, Tiffany Woolf, seasoned filmmaker and daughter of Boston legend Bob Woolf, and Noam Dromi, Emmy Award winning writer/producer, will share their inspirations to create Silver Screen Studios to celebrate the stories of our elders. They will tell us why capturing our senior family members' stories of hope and resilience can enrich the lives of future generations and help ease our grief when these relatives are no longer with us. Tiffany and Noam will also provide unique advice regarding how to gather and develop the stories, whether you're on a shoestring budget or interested in a professionally produced film. All of this, sprinkled with anecdotes and clips from Tiffany's upbringing with her renowned celebrity/sports agent father, as well as Tiffany's and Noam's projects with such Hollywood icons as Carl Reiner, Larry King, Norman Lear and Marion Ross. In addition, we will kick off a contest to win an exclusive Silver Screen Studios film production featuring your elder loved one's life.
