Jean Spurr and Dorit Grunberger created LifePrints Video in 2005, inspired by their mutual delight in telling stories about people, meaningful work and efforts to make a difference in the world. LifePrints Video has worked with a wide range of environmental, social service and educational organizations, companies, and public sector entities. Additionally, we have produced projects for martial arts organizations, theater and arts groups, and musicians. As a team, we offer a unique combination of skill and perspective.
LifePrints Video accomplished what you hope from all great story tellers. They made us laugh, cry and love in new and surprising ways.”

... inspired by what they had previously heard about Pelindaba Lavender and in particular our community focus — a core interest of theirs — LifePrints Video came to visit us for a week. With authenticity and spontaneity in mind, the material they used came solely from their unscripted interviews of us as well as several others in our island community. We were naturally delighted with what they presented to us.”

We used the heart-warming video about our services to the elderly that LifePrints produced to enhance our fundraising efforts. The results well exceeded what we had hoped for!”
Patrick Arbore Program Director, Institute on Aging
When we needed a high-quality, affordable video to introduce the public to the work our agency does, we interviewed several video producers before deciding on LifePrints Video. We were so pleased with the creativity and professionalism of that first video that we went on to make four more (wonderful) videos with them. Jean and Dorit are an absolute pleasure to work with. Their expertise, imagination, and compassion are unmatched.”
