Looking at the footage I've gathered from the home videos, I'm starting to piece together an introduction to me and my family as the start of the film. So things like my name, age, where I'm from, some likes, favourite film, pets, who I live with, the extended family - stuff like that. The boring stuff before I can start delving into my childhood etc.
I'm trying to balance not having too long an introduction to the people who have influenced and contributed to my journey, with it feeling like I jump into the depressing childhood moments too quickly, so I'm constantly shortening and swapping out clips to make it feel like a short and sweet introduction without it feeling too short.
Below is the 'Family' chapter as it stands - without any narration.
