You may have seen it mentioned in an article or heard about it from a friend – but what exactly is a ‘Legacy Video’? And why are Legacy Videos becoming so popular?
A Legacy Video is a memoir on video that records the experiences of an individual, couple or family, for the family. Stories are captured through filmed interviews and then woven with family photos and other memorabilia to bring those stories to life.
The result is a beautiful ‘moving portrait’ capturing the memories of one person or several family members for younger generations to know.
From Public Space to Private Lives
A few years back only professional movie studios, world renowned film makers, and documentarians like Ken Burns, could do justice to any kind of documentary production. Not only was the cost and process far bigger in scope than what any one person could undertake, but the subject had to have wide-spread public appeal. After all, who would be interested in going to a movie theater or watching a mini-series about the family next door?
Today, however, due to technological advances, there is a new breed of professional documentary producer. One that specializes in working solely with families to capture their stories – real stories of real people.
These Family Documentary or Legacy Video producers give families a way to preserve their stories in format that will captivate for generations to come.
Best of all, a Legacy Video can be easily duplicated so family and friends can have a copy of their own.
What Does a Legacy Video Include?
A Legacy Video is designed to a client’s needs and can be whatever a family wants it to be. Below are just a few examples:
- Some families focus on bringing the family tree to life by capturing the family history as recalled by several family members.
- Others keep the focus closer to the present by capturing the life story of a parent or grandparent, from their early childhood up to the present.
- Still others choose to document a special family event or experience – such as summers spent on a grandparent’s farm – and begin a tradition that will inspire others to do the same.
There is no right way to preserve a family’s stories, history and memories. That is why a Legacy Video offers such unique appeal.
