Learn about the Heart & Heritage legacy process.

We take very seriously the preservation of life stories. When you work with us, you go on a meaningful adventure to make the best legacy film for your family.

We will work closely with you and listen to your concerns to actualize your vision. 

1. Inquiry & Consultation

Once we receive an inquiry from you, we'll contact you to discuss the vision for your legacy project and identify what is important to you. This is a free complimentary, no obligation consult. At this time you'll get to express what you want so we can help make it happen! Our project time lengths vary depending on the scope of the film, but it usually will be between 3-6 months.

  • Do you want to preserve stories from your whole life or something topic specific?
  • Do you have a personal letter you'd like to read?
  • Capture the moments of a family reunion, retirement, or anniversary party.

“...they walked us through the process of choosing locations, lighting, camera positions, and audio devices. This was done thoughtfully and carefully...If you have a need to preserve some of your life on film, Heart & Heritage Productions is the first place to consult.”

2. Pricing

After our initial consultation, we'll provide you with an estimate. Our prices will vary as our films are customized to each client's vision. Click here to contact us for information on our pricing. 

3. Pre-Interview & Pre-production

Once you've decided to go ahead with the project, we conduct a pre-interview. This is our research stage. We require a pre-interview in person or over the phone to prepare for the filming stage. During pre-production, Heart & Heritage will go through its intensive process to thoroughly plan and prepare for the filming days.

4. Filming 

Filming is dependent on the scope of your legacy project. The filmed interview itself can be from 1-4 hours. We also have film days to record specific cherished items, a home tour, filming your hobby or passion in action, time with family, or other important events.

5. Delivery

Throughout the editing process, we'll contact you to make sure your vision is fulfilled. Your legacy film project will be delivered in high-quality digital video files that can be downloaded online from a password protected folder.
