Capturing Your Story
Fulfill your fundamental obligation of preserving the family story. Whole Story Productions will guarantee your success by working closely with you to ensure that the stories of your matriarch and patriarch are preserved.
By creating a family legacy video biography, you give your elders the opportunity to chronicle significant life events while gifting the generations to come the ability to see their faces and hear their voices. What a wonderful way to protect your legacy and share values, experiences and stories with your family, friends and community.
Every family is unique. Stories, memories and journeys shape us as people and create our character. Our team works in concert with you to capture the stories that will solidify your legacy. Producing a family documentary offers an empowering experience that brings your history, characters and family values to life.
Video Packages and Pricing
We have designed three production packages to use as a baseline for pricing. We’ll customize one of these to meet your family’s desires, preferences and budget. Please review our Essential, Premium and Platinum packages below by clicking on package titles.
Video Production Process
Contact us to begin the process! Then Whole Story Productions will schedule meetings, whether in person or virtually via phone, Skype or Zoom, to discuss your vision for the project. These discussions will cover priorities, content, topics, goals and scheduling. Your involvement will drive the storyline. We’ll begin to collect photos and home movies so bring what you can gather to this meeting.
Upon arrival, our team will confirm the interview schedule, scout interview locations, confirm other filming priorities and collect family photos, video and archival elements. For interviews, we’ll arrive in advance to set up lights, sound and high-definition cameras to deliver the highest production values. Our pre-approved questions will ensure we cover what matters to you most. Pre-interviews are optional for people who feel nervous about being interviewed.
Once filming is complete, we’ll return to our production studio to log, script and edit the final video. We’ll add graphics, music and other elements for a finished product that reflects your family’s authentic voice with a multi-generational appeal. A rough cut will be available online with secured access for your approval. Once granted, the documentary will be digitally formatted and uploaded to the cloud for easy viewing and sharing by your family, friends and community. Additional formatting available upon request.
You get quite emotional…
“It is so funny, doing something like this makes you think about a lot of things. And you get quite emotional about certain areas. The children have said to me, it’s amazing the discussions we’ve been having. It’s been like some wonderful experience. We’ve all gone to this wonderful place, where everyone has contributed. The result has been exceptional.”
