Life Story Films

 

Life Story Films are an intimate, cinematic, and timeless way to capture the life story of yourself or your loved one.

Preserve your life story in video format for generations to come. Life Story Videos are cinematically-told documentaries, weaving together speaking shots, photos, and footage from everyday life.

Process

Films are multi-faceted pieces of art. The general workflow is as follows:

1) Initial consultation (SCM will sit down with the subject and pre-interview them, answer questions, explain the filming process)

2) Interview filming

3) B-roll filming (b-roll = shots that are visuals to enhance the video, eg. subject playing with grandchild; close-up of memorabilia; shot of the childhood home)

4) Initial edit (SCM will take 3 – 4 weeks to edit the movie)

5) Review first cut (client to give any feedback, desired changes, etc.)

6) Final edit and delivery
