Hal Slifer has been producing biography stories for many years, and he is still excited by their business, the lives it allows them to capture, and the stories it allows them to tell. Not all of his biography films are produced for clients who are close to death. Usually, his biography stories are shown at an event, such as a wedding, anniversary, or birthday gathering, and are fun and entertaining. Not everyone who specializes in the biography side of the business has come from the wedding world. Alan Naumann has been a pastor in his native Minneapolis and is known throughout the WEVA and EventDV communities in the industry as a pioneer in the area of funeral videography. Naumann is known for his funeral videography -- producing memorial videos and capturing funeral/memorial services. He is constantly being contacted by videographers seeking his advice on how to work in this field, and his course on funeral videography is the industry bible for filmmakers who want to enter this untapped area of the video business.
