Every Film is a New Story. We keep our productions Intimate. Intelligent. Real.
Jack and Naomi (partners in life as well as in business) created GENERATIONS cinemastories with an eye and ear focused on making wedding, mtizvah and special event films that would grow in value with the passage of time.

Filming with multiple, hd/dslr cameras (no lights ever on top of cameras!) GENERATIONS makes wedding and event films about people, feelings and reflections. GENERATIONS believes that your wedding is NOT a Hollywood set - and works hard to make sure that the crew and equipment are never in the way.

"We want to make an event film in the style of the client and the event. For some that will mean modern, for others, retro. Some projects will be heavy on the music, others stronger in dialogue". Their work is not about the latest camera or the newest tripod. While they use small, professional cams and mics, for discreet yet full capture, the team focuses on the people and the stories they tell rather than on fancy camera work.

During a wedding or event, the film team is ever-present, but rarely seen. That strategy has won the studio the well-deserved reputation of being truly unobtrusive while capturing emotionally compelling moments that often go by unseen during the actual wedding or event.

Awarded Best of Boston by Boston Magazine in 2008 (the first wedding videographers to have had that honor!), board member of the National Association of Catering and Events, the studio has made a name for itself offering the best in unpretentious, emotionally sensitive wedding, mitzvah and event documentation. In 2011 and 2012 GENERATIONS cinemastories was a finalst on Boston's A-list, and the sole videographers to be awarded the Editor's Choice from Brides Boston Magazine. in 2011, GENERATIONS cinemastories was featured in the premiere issue of Southern New England Destination Weddings as well as Southern New England Magazine.

In 2012, the studio was featured in Southern New England Weddings and appeared on blogposts and facebook for The Catered Affair at Boston Public Library, The Mandarin Oriental in Boston and others. The studio debuted its first video-wallpaper project creating a moving wall display to coordinate with the event's decor. GENERATIONS also streamed several weddings live so that guests unable to attend in person were able to watch the ceremony as it happened.

Specializing in honoring tradition while beng creative innovators, founders Jack Brotman and Naomi Raiselle are artists who continue to experiment with film narrative as well as montage and the broader medium of moving image and sound.

An in-person meeting will allow prospective clients to understand what makes this studio so special. Read less

Naomi, Jack and team were fantastic! They pulled together all the best elements of our wedding and created a beautiful film that feels like a hollywood production. They captured all the emotions and joy of the day and we could not be happier with their services. And while the end product is exceptional, it was great to work with Naomi and Jack as well. They were super easy to talk to and work with - they made us feel comfortable right away (no easy feat if you're not use to being in front of a camera.) We'd highly recommend Generations Cinemastories, and a video in general. It is worth every penny!

I feel so lucky to have had Naomi and Generations Cinemastories video my sons Bar Mitzvah- For my first sons Bar Mitzvah I decided to forgo the expense and as soon as the celebration was over, I realized what a hugh mistake that was- I will never again get to seamy son at that stage of life- such a little boy still- but reading from the Torah and speaking to the Congregation like a man. The first thing I did was ire Naomi when I had the date for my 2nd sons Bar Mitzvah- I was thrilled that they came to to the dress rehearsal an took video there ( our temple would nit allow them there on Saturday)- They interviewed the family members and made the video so special and personal- I am thrilled and tell all of my friends not to skimp on the video, find something else to save on but the video, photos and the invitations are the few tangible items yo can save and treasure forever- everything else is just a memory- Thanks GC!

We loved working with Naomi and Jack!!! We literally cannot say enough good things about the job they did. What they caught and captured is unreal. You seldom see them the day of the wedding, but they are always there and somehow always in the right place to capture a moment. They did such a great job capturing the energy and spirit of the day. You can see the serious and silly parts of our personalities in what they provided. We love it. It brings us right back to the day of the event every time I watch it. We simply can't say enough good things about GENERATIONS cinemastories and Jack and Naomi. We hope we have other events we can work with them on in the future.

Where do we begin? Words alone do not do the team justice. Naomi, Jack and Tess were fantastic to work with and the quality of their pieces is outstanding. As we said after having watched the video -- bucketfulls of awesomeness. We laughed, we cried and when it was over, we watched the video again. In fact, we were so excited with their work that we immediately shared our video with friends and family, and it was an immediate post onto our Facebook walls.

During the hubbub of planning a wedding, there often comes a time when you wonder if/how to cut expenses - when you question if all of the things you sign up for "make sense". Well, it absolutely made sense for us to include videography, and we are thrilled that we chose to include it as a way to help us celebrate our marriage.

The team at Generations cinemastories is gracious and professional - all of the things you'd expect from a top-notch crew. But more than anything else, having them film our wedding was such a natural process - they were part of the family.

Consider them recommended a thousand times over. Thanks, Naomi, Jack and Tess!

My husband and I were recently married at The Seaport Hotel Boston on September 1, 2012---- our wedding day was picture (video) perfect!

When it came to hiring Naomi and Jack of Generations Cinemastories, it was a no brainier. I have been a wedding photographer (www.bkbphoto.com) for over ten years in the local industry and have worked with the Generations Team throughout the years; I have always enjoyed their work, their laid back approach and highly personalized service.... fast forward to my wedding, Naomi and Jack started our wedding weekend by capturing our rehearsal dinner while getting to know our immediate family and friends---through filming our wedding day from start to finish and ending the night by filming our chic after-party at The Seaport Hotel. They were unobtrusive, and their documentary style proved to be one of the best decisions we made on our wedding day. Our guests commented on their professionalism, their tired and true skills of capturing a wedding day seamlessly without interruption.... and the best part was... they turned-around our highlight clip in less than three weeks! See our film here: http://vimeo.com/49884013

As a professional who is embedded in the local wedding community, who knows the in's and out's of a wedding day, there are many videographers in the area, but when it decision time for vendors for YOUR BIG DAY, the choice is simple--- Generations Cinemastories. They will not only captivate you with their films, they are true artists who eat, live and breath cinematography.

We couldn't be more pleased with our highlight clip--- AND we couldn't be more EXCITED to watch our entire wedding from start to finish once it is completed.

From the bottom of my heart, I cannot say enough about Generations and the service we received, we now have memories to look back on as our family grows.

When my husband and I decided to hire a videographer for our wedding, I checked out a handful of vendors. I came across GENERATION cinemastories in a Style Me Pretty feature and their work stood out as top notch artistry that I immediately went to their site to view some more clips. After watching all of the available videos, I contacted them through their site and didn't think I would be contacted back. But within an hour or so I received a response from Naomi and she was so pleasant, professional and prompt from that very first interaction, even when I asked a lot of questions. The contract phase was a breeze too and with that behind us I was told that as a bride to I wouldn't be talking as much with GENERATION cinemastories as with my photographer, and that person was right. We did not meet Naomi and Jack until the day of our wedding. I was getting ready and Naomi pops in with a friendly smile on her face. After talking to her for a few minutes, it was as if she and Jack had put on invincible cloaks from there on out. Myself along with our photographer found them to be unobtrusive and in the background of everything all the while still filming everything. You hardly knew Naomi and Jack were there! Fast forward six months to now, we just received our dvds and are totally blown away. The video is high quality and the capture of our wedding day by Naomi and Jack is exactly how we remember it all (I tear up each time I watch it!). My husband and I loved the messages from our family and friends too. We are so thrilled that we invested in not only a videographer but with GENERATION cinemastories. So easy to work with with a wonderful end product. I can't wait to show my family, especially my grandfather who missed parts of the wedding and has been asking each day to see this!

If you are looking for the best wedding film creators out there, your search stops here! Naomi, Jack and their team did an absolutely amazing job capturing the story of our wedding day and our relationship. When my husband and I were first planning our wedding, we were not going to have videography for a couple reasons. 1. We thought pictures would be enough and 2. we were not impressed with any wedding videos or companies that were out there. Then we met Naomi at a bridal show in Boston. We got to know her and her amazing work. It was so different than anything we had seen. We knew we found the perfect person to capture our day and there was no turning back. Our film is amazing!! It brings back the day for us! It captures the imagery beautifully, the feeling, the atmosphere and, the best part, the sounds and words! So many things that my husband and I didn't get a chance to see or hear on our wedding day, Naomi and Jack saw and heard it for us. I can't believe that I ever thought having a film was going to be a waste of money. My husband and I agree that hiring Generations Cinemastories was the best decision and investement that we made to capture our story!!

To Naomi and Jack - Thank you so much for capturing our story and everything that you did for us. Words can't express how happy we are with our film and no one could have done it better. Hope to see you again soon!

To Naomi and Jack - Thank you so much for capturing our story and everything that you did for us. Words can't express how happy we are with our film and no one could have done it better. Hope to see you again soon! Read less

Most wedding videos are called wedding videos because they capture what is there; Generations Cinemastories actually made a film that demonstrated how our wedding was really a love story and not just a day at a church and a reception hall. Jack and Naomi are wonderful to work with and were great company during the parts of filming that took place during intimate moments leading up to the big event and their talent for choosing the scenes and shots that really tell the story of your day, moment-by-moment is truly exceptional. You get so much more than just a video, you really get a movie of your life's greatest love story!

Naomi and Jack are true professionals and masters of their craft. The bride and groom requested that all videography be "Not obtrusive" and this request was honored throughout the wedding day, ceremony and reception. The wedding trailer that we received shortly after the event was so beautifully done that everyone who viewed it said that it brought tears to their eyes! The completed video captured so many moments of this wonderful wedding that family members could not remember!! What a joy to be able to watch the video and relive the wedding!! I would recommend GENERATIONS cinemastories to any bride and groom as well as to anyone looking for a high-quality and totally professional videographer. Naomi and Jack will provide a product that exceeds your expectations!!!

Words cannot adequately express how blown away we were by working with Naomi and Jack. From the first time we spoke on the phone, every interaction was nothing but a pleasure. There could not be two more genuine and creative people who bring incredible professionalism, artistry, and talent to their work. We were so happy to be sharing our wedding day with them and loved how important it is to Generations Cinemastories to have an understanding of the couple's identity and story and what matters most to them about capturing the day. After we told Naomi and Jack that our huge focus for our wedding was including our 5 grandparents, they thought of the idea of interviewing each of them for our video. Those interviews are beyond valuable to us, and for the rest of our lives we will be able to see our beloved grandparents so happy for us, talking about their excitement for our future together.

Watching the video, we laughed until our bellies hurt, we cried tears of joy, and we were able to relive the best day of our lives. I will pass along the same statement that was said to me when a friend recommended working with Generations Cinemastories - it is the best decision I made when planning my wedding. I'm sure there are great videographers out there, but Generations Cinemastories is on a whole different level. They created a personalized memory for us that we will have forever.

We worked with Naomi and Jack for our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Throughout the entire process, they were very prompt and professional. They really got a sense of who we were as a couple and tailored our highlights reel and full wedding video to our taste. They weren't obtrusive at all during either event. I highly recommend them!

Naomi did a wonderful job, videotaping my daughter's wedding in Boston over the past weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed having her as the videographer. Showed atmost professionalism in her work. The live webcast was a big hit with all the people you were unable to come to the wedding. The picture was very clear and the broadcast was very impressive. Great job Naomi and the crew!!!!

Absolutely delightful to work with! Naomi and Jack and their team surpassed our expectations, our hopes! Why, because their work is extraordinary and even more, they are extraordinary to work with! A better combination can't be found. They captured our first little garden wedding, (on incredibly short notice), then retold childhood in sweet glimpses in the growing up video, captured the intimacy of the rehearsal dinner and then brought all the joy and love together in the affirmation of vows ceremony and reception video. Naomi, Jack listened, they responded, they suggested, they guided and they produced everything they promised and more! Generations to come will feel as if they were a part of every moment of our story because of the artistry of Jack and Naomi and their amazing team! Thank you, thank you.....

Naomi and Jack are absolutely the best at what they do. They did a Love Poem for us, which is AMAZING and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. I get teary eyed every time I watch it! They captured the true emotion of the day so beautifully, and you wouldn't even have known they were there! Naomi and Jack are far more than just videographers, but rather wonderful story tellers. Having them be a part of our day was the best decision we could have made. And to top it all off, they are two of the nicest, sweetest people you could ever meet. I am so thankful that they were able to share in our day with us. I can't recommend them enough!!!

We were thrilled to have Naomi and Jack at our wedding. They are so professional and their skills are limitless. Everyone felt so comfortable speaking with them - they are such a pleasure to be around. I would recommend them to anyone!

Update - We just received our video and watched the whole thing - it is, in a word, amazing. We were stunned at what a good idea it turned out to be to have Naomi and Jack film the rehearsal dinner - the toasts and our special groom's cake would have been lost had we not done that, and we were so happy to capture those moments. The wedding shots captured all the important highlights and made wonderful use of our guests' comments and toasts. And thank you so much for being careful to include the references to John's family - it really means a lot to have those things included. We decided we're going to watch it each year on our anniversary - it was such an incredible reminder of all the love we felt that day and what a beautiful occasion it turned out to be.

We absolutely loved everything about our video and each of us teared up while watching it. It was moving, touching, extremely well edited and just beautifully done from the footage to song choices to interviews. Truly amazing. Make sure to check out their wedding clips on their website. I cannot recommend Generations Cinemastories enough!

Jack and Naomi of Generations Cinemastories are an exception team! We did not want a standard 2hr video of barely edited footage which most videography companies generally offer. We wanted a beautifully edited story of our day which we could watch years from now and love. After watching the amazing highlights clips on their website (a must!) I knew they were the right company for us. Their style and personalized service to me was unparalleled. We had a fairly tight budget but Naomi and Jack were able to customize a package within our price range.
We have now just received our highlights clip which is amazing!!! They incorporated our music selections and did not hesitate to make changes/add footage which we suggested (and that's just for a 6min highlights clip!!). It has been an amazing experience working with 2 people who are exceptional at what they do and have a vision and style which is truely unique and beautiful. I cant wait to see our final full length video!

Jack and Naomi made my wedding day so special. I approached them just under a year before my wedding and asked whether they could help me put together a slideshow tribute to my dad to play during the father/daughter dance. I asked if at the end of the slideshow they could edit in same day footage of my dad walking me down the aisle and giving me away. They were very excited about the idea and more than willing to do the project. The slideshow with same-day edit turned out amazing! Everyone was in tears! Naomi and Jack are so talented and I cannot thank them enough for helping me create such a special gift for my dad. Can't wait to see the wedding video!!!!

We just got our video from Naomi and Jack and their team, and it took our breath away. The video truly tells the story of our wedding, from start to finish, in images and sounds. I'm especially impressed by how well they filmed the wild and crazy hora at our reception--there were 200 people holding hands and running around in a circle and Naomi managed to film it all and not to get trampled!

We originally contacted Generations just a few weeks before our wedding after we saw them listed in Boston magazine's Best of Boston awards. Unlike other videographers we spoke to, they really listened to us, understood what was important to us, and treated our wedding like it was as important to them as it was to us. My husband and I *highly* recommend them.

They aren't the typical wedding videographer they don't hand you the video at the end of the night when you hand them a check. They take the video and edit it and edit it until it's perfect.

I cannot imagine anyone else doing the video for my wedding.

GENERATIONS cinemastories responded with the following comments:

We loved this couple, their family, and their wedding. We provided this couple with every service we offer. We attended the rehearsal (as indicated) the evening prior to the New Years Eve wedding. We showed up an hour early to shoot the couple getting ready and we filmed the wedding with 4 cameras and 3 videographers. After the couple received the trailer we produced for them, they sent us this lovely comment:
"What a way to make our night. I wasn't prepared for the water works to come out. Absolutely beautiful how you have overlapped the words and images. Can't wait to see more! I have already forwarded it to my family and friends. Thank you thank you, Julianne and Austin."
It's disheartening for us to hear that we did not get a 5.0 for value. We worked very diligently on shooting the wedding and we are continuing to edit the long piece for the full wedding film. While we may not agree on why we received a lower rating for value, we still loved working with the couple on their beautiful wedding!

Simply wonderful- Naomi and company are deeply interested not just in their work (which they do very well) but in the people they film. This translates to lively and professional interactions, and a happy interest in all that goes on and what is important for your (my?) wedding video.

Their filming process was relatively unobtrusive and in the final product, their editing managed to capture the variety and vividness of the wedding, while maintaining a good narrative flow. I highly recommend Generations Videostories to anyone lucky enough to book them. :)
