How long does it take to make a family Legacy Film?
This depends on several factors, including; any necessary travel, scheduling, and the availability of key materials like family photos and home movies. In general, it only takes a few months to complete a Legacy Film. In special cases, this process can be sped up to accommodate an important event,
anniversary or birthday.
How much does it cost?
Since pricing is so project specific, we will need to conduct a free consultation over the phone
and then send you a bid in order to give you the most accurate estimate for your film.
All my relatives are long gone, can I still make a film about them?
It is quite common for people to realize that they wish they had made a legacy film about special relatives after they have already passed away. Sometimes it is the death of a loved one that we are close to that prompts a Legacy Film project in the first place. Nearly all our Films have some element of memorializing loved ones because we all have memories of a dear grandparent, aunt, uncle, or parent that made an impact on our life.
I have so many family photos & home movies that I would like to include. How do I choose which ones? I don’t know where to start!
That’s why you’re hiring us. We can review all your material and work with you to sift through all the wonderful memorabilia your family has collected to make this process easier.
What do you do for the camera-shy?
Even the most camera-shy people warm up when asked the right questions in a comfortable, safe environment.
That is why, as much as possible, we interview our clients in their own homes. We conduct our interviews so people feel like they are talking to an old friend. Our equipment set-up is minimal in order to be as unobtrusive as possible so that even the camera-shy can forget that they are being filmed.
In the event that someone really doesn’t want to appear on camera, projects can be tailored to meet those needs.
For instance, voice-over can be placed underneath photographs, home movies.
I feel like my life was uneventful, but my kids/grandkids want me to make a Legacy Film.
As normal or uneventful you may feel like your life is, at Broadway, we believe that everyone has stories to tell and to pass down. After doing this for several years I have not met one person whose life was uneventful.
No matter what you have done in your life, big or small, your life means a lot to those who love you.
I live in South Florida area, but my relatives do not. Can I still make a legacy Film with Broadway?
Absolutely! The majority of our projects involve travel. During your initial consultation, you can decide how you wish to handle the travel. Some people opt to fly relatives in, or schedule interviews during family gatherings. The best-case scenario is always to interview people in their own homes where they feel the most at ease.
