“If A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words,
How Many Is A Video Worth?”


About Petumentaries

Pets give us unconditional love, loyalty and companionship and we benefit tremendously by sharing our homes and lives with them. They are more than just animals, they are family, who often make us better human beings – physically, mentally and emotionally.

So, when we lose them to old age and/or illness, we find solace in our home videos, photographs and other items to remember them by. This is the foundation for the “Petumentaries” service, making it an invaluable investment for anyone who has ever loved, and been loved by, a pet.

Cleveland-based documentary filmmaker, Jeff Theman, will direct and edit a short film about your pet(s), that you, your family and friends can participate in, share and cherish for the rest of your lives. We’re firm believers that everyone has an interesting and important story to be told. Like a photograph, it’s a snapshot in time that is preserved digitally. Petumentaries captures the soul of your pet in ways a photograph cannot.

Terms & Conditions

While you own the completed short film, PETUMENTARIES is an entity of River Fire Films, and may be used for promotional purposes. If you wish to not allow River Fire Films to use your video to promote this service, you may opt out in writing. In-Person scheduling of conducting interviews and obtaining footage of your pet is an option, but only offered to Cleveland (OH) area residents and for an additional charge. Assistance for all other customer locations is done through voice/video calls, email and/or text. For an additional fee covering travel and time expenses, assistance in all other areas can be accommodated if scheduled in advance. There is a large database of free Royalty-Free music to choose from that helps capture the mood you desire. Unfortunately, River Fire Films cannot use licensed music (think – mainstream music you hear on the radio) due to legal ramifications.
