It’s all about YOUR story.

Our productions are Intimate. Intelligent. Real. Creative

Jack and Naomi (partners in life as well as in business) created GENERATIONS cinemastories with an eye and ear focused on making wedding, mitzvah, and special event films that would grow in value with the passage of time.

"We want to make an event film in the style of the client and the event. For some that will mean experimental, modern. For others, the look and feel may be classic, playful, sophisticated or retro. Some projects will be heavy on the music, others stronger in dialogue". No matter what the style, GENERATIONS’ work always focuses on the people and the stories they have to tell.

Awarded Best of Boston by Boston Magazine in 2008 (the first wedding videographers to have had that honor!), board members of the National Association of Catering and Events, New England Chapter, and member International Special Events Society, the studio has made a name for itself offering the best in intelligent, emotionally compelling wedding, mitzvah, fundraising, corporate and event videography and films. In 2011 and 2012 GENERATIONS cinemastories was a finalist on Boston's A-list, and the sole videographers to be awarded the Editor's Choice from Brides Boston Magazine. in 2011.

The studio is proud to have produced and filmed 2 short films:“Legal at Last – at least in Massachusetts” covering the first three years of equal marriage in Massachusetts; and “TIKKUN” a conversation with Temple Emanuel of Newton’s 32 holocaust survivors and children.

GENERATIONS cinemastories was featured in the premiere issue of Southern New England Destination Weddings and is often featured in Southern New England Weddings Magazine.

Honoring tradition while being creative innovators, founders Jack Brotman and Naomi Raiselle are artists who continue to experiment with film narrative, and the broader medium of moving image and sound. They invite interested couples to check out the website http://www.generationscinemastories.com

I was on the fence about having video at our wedding. It seemed like an unnecessary expense – something that wouldn’t really impact our wedding. We ultimately decided to do it because we knew that we would want to have something to go back and remember our special day. And we figured if we were going to do video, we were going to go with the best – and that’s how we found Jack & Naomi!

Jack & Naomi are absolutely delightful to work with. They are professional, creative and relaxed. We did a “love story” engagement shoot and showed it at our rehearsal dinner – and it was absolutely perfect! It captured our story perfectly, and it was so fun to share this with our family and friends.

On the wedding day, Jack & Naomi did an amazing job of capturing the action without disrupting it. They were proactive in finding quiet moments to talk to guests and to interview the wedding party. We are SO excited to see our wedding video – and I have a feeling this will be one that we watch over and over again, and not just sit around collecting dust.

Our wedding preview and feature film are out-of-this-world, completely amazing! It honestly does not get any better than our videos by Naomi and Jack. The videography was the vendor I cared the most about and spent the most time agonizing over. In fact, one of the few things I spent time agonizing over, and we could not have made a better choice. We were very fortunate to be able to hire them after budgeting on some other expenses (our ceremony venue in a state park was awesome and cost us only $15!) It's totally worth cutting down on other expenses if needed and using the money to hire Naomi and Jack. They worked great with our professional photographer, as well as with my brother, who took pictures of us getting ready and some of our dinner since we did not hire a professional photographer for those parts. The videos consist of both beautiful interviews they did as well as fantastic footage, and everything is integrated seamlessly together. They were unobtrusive and did not try to choreograph anything, but rather did a great job catching candid interactions. In short, I love our videos and am super grateful to have had such a wonderful experience with them.

Naomi and Jack were a pleasure to work with! We had the great opportunity to meet them a few months prior at my brother's wedding and they felt like family by the time they shot our wedding. We barely knew they were there but they were able to capture all the best moments.

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!

Oh my god it is the most amazing video and I love it so much! I can't even explain how much I love it and everything is in there. It's so funny to see it and I don't even remember some of that stuff. So thank you so much for capturing all those great moments. I was laughing and crying it's so great. We really appreciate all the effort and care you put into the video and making our wedding so memorable forever. And those beautiful cases I had no idea they came like that. Thank you so much for making my wedding video!

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 just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary and it has now because a tradition of ours to watch our wedding film each year. It's a prized possession that I will cherish forever. I'm so glad that we decided to have our wedding documented on film because it is the best way to relive our wedding day and all the emotions that everyone was feeling that day. Naomi & Jack are the best and we couldn't be happier with the film we received!
