For the Next Generation
Your experience matters. Help us remember and learn.
What we do
Our process captures everything from birth to present while adding in any pertinent media from the past throughout the documentary.
The Filming Process
We come to you! Wherever you would like to film your documentary, we will set up our portable equipment and capture your story. We break up the process into four separate sessions that last one hour each. This helps break up the amount of information you will have to give in one session. This can be a tiring undertaking, but we want it to be as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!
The Editing Process
Over the course of several weeks, we will break down the content of our four sessions into a final product that will be around two hours long. During the process, we will add in any pertinent pictures, family videos, or other media that you would like included. As well, the full un-edited version of the sessions will be available. Every moment we capture is valuable, although we do want to leave you with a final product that is a reasonable length to watch with family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you film the documentary?
Wherever you want! This is your life and we would love to film in a place that has meaning to you. We can give some suggestions, but it's probably better to show you. If you want to see some of our past work to get ideas Click Here.
How do you decide what to leave in and what to cut out of the final product?
This is something we take very seriously. We hate being the ones to choose what the most important parts of someone's life were. However, when someone talks about something truly important to them, their face lights up and you can tell they really care about what they are saying. This is a primary tactic we use in choosing what ends up in the end product. We always give you access to the full, un-editing sessions, though. So even if something didn't end up in the final documentary, it is still available.
How long will it take to complete the project?
As mentioned above, we try to break the filming process into four sessions. Ideally these could be scheduled once a week, stretching the filming process out to four weeks. After that, It can take up to another four weeks to edit everything and put it together into a final product. This can vary based on how much extra pictures, videos, and other media will need to be added into the project.
Why is this such a valuable service?
This is the kind of service that gives you a product that will be cherished for generations. The amazing stories and lessons from past generations are being lost more and more everyday. Everyday we lose more people whose voices will never be heard again. Preserving their voice and their experiences is beyond valuable. As well, everything we do is valued based on how long it will take us to complete. These are large projects and the value has to make sense for our employees to be able to complete them.
