legacy

The Legacy video option is similar to our Portrait video, however, we also incorporate your archives to build a more detailed and engaging story.  We blend your own collections and inspirations to create a lasting legacy for your family.

We use a storytelling system called Muse.

 

Consistently telling powerful and authentic stories is possible with a reliable and proven method.  Think of our process as a mix of a Storycorps interview between family members, and a visually compelling ride, illustrating the essence of your story.  We start by building a list of keywords with you to help guide and inform every decision along the way.
