What is a Legacy Video and why has it become the new favorite way for families to preserve their stories and history for younger generations to know?
A Legacy Video by Family Tree Video is a memoir on video that captures a family’s stories through filmed interviews. The interviews are then edited together with family photos, documents, maps and other memorabilia. Titles, chapters, music and more are added throughout. The result is a beautiful “moving portrait” that captures one or more family members sharing their stories in their own words – a modern-day heirloom that can be shared for generations to come.
From Public Space to Private Lives
A few years back only professional movie studios could do justice to any type of documentary film production. Not only was the cost and process far bigger in scope than what any one person could manage, but the story had to have wide-spread appeal. After all, who would want to pay money to see a movie about the family next door?
Due to technological advances, there is a new breed of filmmaker, one that specializes in working solely with families to capture their stories. These producers give families a way to preserve their stories so they can be passed on for future generations to know.
What is in a Legacy Video?
A Legacy Video is whatever a family wants it to be. Below are just a few examples:
- Some families bring 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 as recounted in their own words.
- Still others document a special family event or experience – such as summers spent on a grandparent’s farm – and begin a tradition that inspires younger generations to do the same.
There is no right way to preserve a family’s stories and history. That is why a Legacy Video offer such unique appeal.
