Remember When was founded in 2000 by Matt King and Fern Bray.
Matt King brings extensive experience in the film production business to Remember When. He has worked as a production technician for Disney and other Hollywood concerns, plus has been involved in numerous film and production projects in the Denver area during his filmmaking career. Fern Bray, described by a local newspaper reporter as "a homegrown Barbara Walters," is the interviewer. She guides clients through a list of more than 150 questions designed to jog the memory and get across just who the person really is. Most often taping is done right in the client's home.
Both Matt and Fern had a personal calling to their unique and special video production business.
Matt was holding his own Dad's hand when he died of pneumonia a number of years back. Whereas Matt only had the sound of his Dad's voice left on an answering machine tape and the mere memory of his father's wonderful laugh, Matt is now making sure others have more and better options for preserving special family memories.
Fern's motivation came from her own daughter asking questions about Granddad. "My daughter said she didn't know anything about my father, and I told her it was time she learned," Fern explains.
