In the hustle and bustle of daily life we often forget to find out about our parents’ past and where we come from. By having your parent sit down for a Long Yarn Films life story interview, you’ll have the chance to archive the stories and personality of Mum or Dad.
Imagine future generations being able to meet your parents and share in their legacy.
Hello, I’m Clinton Moore, founder of Long Yarn Films. We’re a small family business with a big passion for capturing memories.
Our family history journey was inspired by the realisation that our parents were getting older and were the custodians of a wealth of knowledge. We wanted to capture this legacy as a keepsake for both ourselves and future generations.
After filming our very first interview with my own grandmother I felt safe in the knowledge that my grandchildren would now have a better idea of where they came from.
We want to help you capture this same experience so that your Mum and Dad’s smile and personality can be shared with your family forever.
Being a small business we focus on giving you and your parent individual attention. We don’t create cookie cutter films. Just like your parent, each one of our films is unique and tailored to their personality.
Filming Your Parents’ Best Side
Long Yarn Films provides the best family history interviews on offer with:
– Professional psychologist interviewers with over a decade’s experience
– First hand experience working with dementia and geriatric health
– Flexible interview options to ensure maximum comfort for your parent
– Professional cinematography and audio equipment
– One-on-one assistance in preparing for the interview
– Provision of a resource filled orientation Welcome Pack
We carry this level of quality production through until the final film is produced and in your hands to share with the whole family.
Long Yarn Films is based in Sydney and loves crossing the city to help create your life story video. We have no travel fees for filming locations within Sydney. For those places a little further away we have very reasonable travel fees.
To make sure your parent has the most comfortable experience possible we come to you no matter where you are in Sydney. This means that we can film your parent in their own home rather than in some cold and impersonal studio.
We’ll work with you and your parent throughout the process to ensure that everyone is comfortable and can easily simplify our setup if preferred. Rest assured through that we’ll treat your parent’s house as though it were our own!

It's wonderful to have the family history recorded. It's a treasure we'll keep forever.
Clinton was passionate about hearing and recording the story that I had to tell. His personal interst and meticulous preparation showed at every stage of the production.
I really enjoyed being able to watch Dad's story with him and to see how proud he was of his life and the joy on his face.
Everything was very professional. I'm really happy and I'm going to take it away with me to Italy when I visit.
