FILM & CAMERA PACKAGES

Legacy Memoirs (***Limited Time Only***)

Legacy Memoirs 

These are stand-alone films starting at up to 10 minutes in duration and are offered for a limited time only.
 
These films are also typically cradle-to-date life stories shot in one session with a two-camera, three man film crew (unless additional days are purchased). These may consist of a number of very short highlight stories, chronicling your life and featuring one or more longer stories or topics. These stories however, will only consist of up to 8 images/videos incorporated into each film and the remainder will be shots of the storyteller speaking straight through (switching between both camera angles). This is an affordable way to add more in-depth storytelling about your favorite life events (you will provide us with any content not shot on that day). You may also elect to have us film at any number of location that best represent your life stories (see below for packages and pricing). Some films may require stock music, footage or images, requiring additional fees (add-ons will only be provided after your authorization).

Choose your final Memoir Film with a duration of up to:

10 minutes, with a full day shoot (3 man crew) - $7,500
15 minutes, with a full day shoot (3 man crew) - $9,700
30 minutes, with a full day shoot (3 man crew) - $12,500

Life Legacy Films

You may also elect to have us film at any number of locations that best represent your life stories (see below for packages and pricing). Some films may require stock music, footage or images, requiring additional fees (add-ons will only be provided after your authorization).

Multiple Viewing Versions

All "Life Legacy" films are shot in a standard documentary format and are suitable for virtually all viewing. Here are a few options for creating multiple versions of your film(s) to suit specific viewing audiences and seasons

 

Memorial Celebration Showcase
We can shoot and edit a separate opening and or closing to your video where you will speak directly to your loved ones, specifically at the season of your passing… perhaps encouraging or consoling them during their time of grief. Maybe even leaving a lighthearted message in jest, to not scratch your car, or step on your lawn. Or perhaps telling a long-time golfing buddy "Congratulations! Now that I'm gone, maybe you can finally win a golf game once in a while".

 

Future Viewing

We can shoot and edit a separate opening and or closing to speak to your loved ones after a specific future event in time comes to pass. An example would be that you may want to leave a word of encouragement to your loved ones at the future passing of your spouse or to your grand kids at the passing or your children. Or perhaps you'd like to leave a congratulatory message to one or more of your children or grandchildren to be played at their wedding or at the birth of their first child, or maybe at their college graduation. On an even lighter note, you may want to leave a message to your family to be played when your college alma mater finally wins a National Championship.

 

Individual Viewers Versions

Send specific messages to individual family and loved ones. Here are some possible scenarios:
Suppose you have had a tough go with a loved one who has made a bad decision or two along the way and you have forgiven them, but you suspect they are still living with the build; here is the opportunity to discuss the situation one last time, in private, so that they will know that you went through the extra trouble to make sure they know that they can let it go and move on with their lives in peace.  Or perhaps you have made a poor decision or two along the way and would like to make one last attempt at asking an individual for forgiveness (this would be a perfect way of proving to them that you sincerely regret your actions truly seek there forgiveness).


A La Carte Camera Packages (for additional days of shooting)
These add-on packages are great for capturing substantiating footage or additional interviews at your favorite locations/activities or those you mention in your stories. Places and events such as family reunions, family BBQ's, places you are known to frequent such as ballparks, lakes, beaches, the opera, as well as business location(s), homes you grew up in, etc.
