"Avista Video Histories did an amazing job putting together a video for PNM's Celebration 2000 event for employees. They patiently worked with us to merge parts of an existing video with historical company photos and narration. They also came out to the event and captured live footage of important ceremonies and activities. As the event planner, it was comforting to know that Avista would handle all of the video details in a professional and efficient manner. The end product was fantastic."
Laurie Roach, Owner, Turn of Event
"Using a video format for training has allowed hundreds of viewers to receive a particular training session at their convenience while I trained the session once. Working with Avista was a pleasure. All I had to do was have my lesson plan prepared and perform. They did the rest. I was included in the editing and formatting processes after the actual recording of the session."
Janyce Ulibarri, Quality Assurance Trainer

The picture quality was so crisp and clear (and they follow the action). I’ve used quite a few videographers over the years and Avista’s work is (the best) great!"

The bride and groom greatly appreciate the excellent quality of the video and will treasure it always."

You helped make our wedding weekend, and our memories of it, perfect! We love having it on DVD!"

FAMILY VIDEO CLIENTS
"My daughter-in-law Bonnie thought this was a great way to have a history for her daughter, my granddaughter [Carly]…what better way to have Carly know about her grandparents and great-grandparents, as far back as we could go…Bonnie said she was wracking her brain to get us something nice for an anniversary present…She told us a video history is something you don’t have and you wouldn’t think of doing for yourself…Lisa made it so simple…all I did was follow directions and it all came together."
Lea Bernstein, Storyteller with husband Stan
"Well their 50th anniversary was coming up…my kids didn’t know my parent’s history, where grandma and grandpa met, where they came from, or anything. And I thought it was important to have that on film because we could lose it.…They had us bring photos and that helped my Mom and Dad remember things and we put it together, it was easy and quick. I brought copies it to the reunion….I have to say it was worthwhile. And now, two months after the reunion my Dad got diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and so now I know even more how important it was to have done it….He’s not the same man…We caught him when he was still vibrant, still my dad…he couldn’t do it now…it was so important to catch those moments in time before we lose it forever." Ann Mahony, Daughter of Storytellers
"This is in a format they [the younger generation] understand. This is video."

"My Mom comes from a pioneering family and has a lot of stories to tell. She’s 86 years old and I knew it wasn’t too long before she couldn’t tell these stories…We enjoyed the process of doing it. Everyone was wonderful at Avista Video. Part of the fun was getting together and going through all the old pictures. The whole family did that…We were very pleased with the product. We presented it on Easter Sunday…to the whole family and everyone loved it..I think it’s well worth it. It’s something I would do again, and my Mother likes it too and her friends are now thinking about doing it!”"
Jean Van Dusen, Mother of Storyteller Mesa Browne Grigsby
"Well, after my husband passed away, I wanted to preserve his memory and I wanted to document all the names and places that were important to him as well as all the stories that he told me over the years about his childhood. So I decided to do this video and Avista was very helpful in telling me how to put it together and they were very patient with me, which I appreciated it. This was a very therapeutic and comforting time for me."
