Mark Aaron Productions produces high-level personal video biographies in which subjects discuss their family background and heritage, tell their personal story, and impart words of wisdom to their descendants.
As a young boy, I was always asking my grandmothers and other elder relatives about their early lives and their immigrant parents. I always had the sense that these memories and family histories were sacred. After graduating from college, I started doing film and video biographical interviews of a variety of people who interested me, from my grandmother to war hero Colonel Jonathan de Sola Mendes to longtime Congregation Shearith Israel hazzan Rev. Abraham Lopes Cardozo. After years of doing such interviews out of my own personal desire to document individuals I admired, I was hired to do biographical video interviews of American Jewish athletes for the American Jewish Historical Society's archive on Jews in Sport, for which I conducted what was perhaps the last interview done of U.S. Olympian and pioneer sportscaster Marty Glickman.
This background has brought me into the business of producing high-level personal video biographies that serve as sacred legacies for the subjects’ descendants.
