Happy Internet Geek Tuesday!

In honor of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, I invite you to click here to watch “From Shanghai to Harlem,” a documentary trailer my digital sister Sylvia Wong Lewis and LS3 Studios created to celebrate her family’s Chinese Caribbean and African American heritage. The film traces the migration of Lewis’ paternal Mississippi line and immigration of her maternal Chinese and Caribbean ancestors as they settled in Harlem, New York.

Lewis’ firm, Narrative Network recently won a Telly Bronze Award in the category of Film/Video – Non-Broadcast Productions – Low Budget (under $700 per minute).  The film also won the AVA Digital Gold Award earlier this year.

  1. A nice story. It would be nice if all families made a historical family video. Placing together the pictures, the time & dates and narrated by the family spokesperson. I once saw a movie that showed future graves sites projecting a video of the decease person life. It always interesting to hear someone’s’ life story, good or bad and their impact on the world.
