We prefer that each project begin with an interview. The interviews can be either audio or video. This allows us to collect the voices and memories of your family members. We will then take this information and transfer it into a digital format. If you desire only the interview, we can transfer this into an audio file with a transcript (if desired). If you would like a film, we will use the information collected in the interview, adding family history information and pictures to this film. The editing of your film depends largely on the size of your project. Larger projects will take a greater amount of time to complete. A one hour audio interview generally takes five to ten hours to complete. The information incorporated into the film will come from the interview (audio or video), family pictures and home videos provided, or photographs taken by our house photographer. Other sources may be included, via the request of the client.

We start with the information that you have: dates, legal information, pictures, etc. Then we find what's missing.
