Luxury video family biographies

The video biographies we are producing are personalized family histories that trace the genealogy of relatives as far back as family members can document. Using old photos, restored documents, interviews of people the clients recommend, home video and information supplied by family historians, we are able to weave into the story long departed ancestors and include them in our modern-day chronicle that is presented on a DVD, BlueRay disc, flash drive or personal (encrypted) internet portal.

The result is an enthralling and invaluable, historical, video account that becomes a priceless family legacy. If you have seen the “Biography” program on the A & E Network then you have a good idea of the style of story we produce. The main difference is that our biographies are completely personalized, exalting in the virtues of each family. And, like the programs on A & E, we adhere to very high standards of video production.

The video biographies we are producing are personalized family histories that trace the genealogy of relatives as far back as family members can document. Using old photos, restored documents, interviews of people the clients recommend, home video and information supplied by family historians, we are able to weave into the story long departed ancestors and include them in our modern-day chronicle that is preserved on video.

‚ÄčThese are not home movies. We use professional, broadcast quality, digital, HD video equipment, and experienced television producers, technicians, videographers and editors. I personally write, narrate, and oversee the entire production, making sure that the biography — or family story — is of the highest technical and literary standards. Furthermore, we can produce these histories in any language.

Finally, and most importantly, everything we do from start to finish is kept in the strictest confidence. As a professional, practicing journalist, for 35-years, I understand and have always abided by the tenets of complete¬† absolute and unconditional — client confidentiality. Furthermore, all of our employees must sign confidentiality agreements before they can work for us.

And while some of our clients proudly show the biographies to friends and associates, as incomparable representations of their accomplishments, others have realized that the stories are equally important as instruments for legacy planning. On the same separate, easily assessed, portion of the video we encourage our clients, if they so choose, to speak freely about the following:

The accumulation phase of the family’s life, as well as the distribution phase, of acquired knowledge. The achievement of various life goals along the way, such as buying a home, putting children through school, growing a successful company and philanthropic endeavors.

Family philosophy, strategies, anecdotes, legends, secrets (optional), values, travels and special adventures. And ultimately, wishes for the conservation and transfer of the estate to the next generation.

Our other services

Living Ethical Will:

Many of our clients have expressed a desire to document their important thoughts, values, principles and beliefs and place these important desires on a video. Our corporate instrument allows the CEO or Founder to preserve the corporate legacy of a family business or foundation. The interview is conducted in the presence of an attorney who can guide and advise the client while the statements are being recorded on video. Our goal is to always provide our clients with the most impeccable services available. The Ethical Will is designed and produced based of the individual needs and goals of each family. Our expertise in advising and guiding our clients makes the experience enjoyable and stress-free.

Video for Foundations:

Our productions for foundations cover many facets. Clients have used explanatory videos to explain the services they perform. As fundraising instruments, our descriptive videos give potential donors a clear understanding of the depth of services the foundation provides as well as examples of the accomplishments of the organization. Using interviews with directors of the foundations as well as video statements from patrons and clients, we are able to produce a compelling story which vividly describes the work of the foundation.

Corporate Informational Videos:

Corporate informational videos are valuable tools for informing potential customers about the services offered by the company. The videos can be used to educate employees about company policies or explain the uses of products and services offered by the company. The videos are easy to view and distribute and can be used as promotional instruments as well. Some clients have used portions of the company videos on their web sites.

Multimedia Productions:

We have designed individual multimedia videos for families or institutions where there are several mediums to be blended into one easy-to-use format. Families who have accumulated years of film or video tape and who have other documents can have it all consolidated on our personally designed, video that incorporates all of the information on one source. Our unique process of combining several formats into one platform has become very popular with families who want to share material from different branches and include it all on a source for all to enjoy.
