What is a Legacy Video and why is it the new favorite way for families to preserve their stories? Legacy Videos by Family Tree Video are memoirs on video that capture a family’s stories and history for younger generations to know.
Legacy Videos are also known as Family History Videos and Family Documentaries.
Stories are captured through filmed interviews edited together with family photos and other memorabilia. Titles, chapters, music and more are woven throughout. The result is a beautiful “moving portrait” – a modern-day heirloom families cherish for generations to come.
Unlike a photo album, written memoir or ancestry.com, Legacy Videos preserve a family’s oral history, memories recalled in one’s own words. They capture personality and nuance along with priceless information, bringing stories to life in a way the written word often struggles to do.
In the past, only professional movie studios could do justice to any kind of documentary production. Not only was the cost and process bigger than what any one person could take on, but the subject had to have wide-spread appeal.
Today, thanks to technological advances, there is a new type of documentary producer. Ones that specialize in working with families in order to capture their stories – real stories of real people. These producers give families a way to preserve their stories in format that will captivate for generations.
What is in a Legacy Video?
A Legacy Video can be whatever a family wants it to be. Below are a few examples:
- Some families want to capture the family history as recalled by several family members in order to bring the family tree to life.
- Others prefer to keep the focus closer to the present by capturing the life story of a parent or grandparent.
- Still others choose to capture a special family event or experience – such as summers on grandpa’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. That is why a Legacy Video has such unique appeal.
