Atlanta, GA, March 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Professional videographers John Grubb and Craig Vogel were looking for a way to preserve some of the memories of Craig’s grandfather when the idea for their newest project suddenly emerged—capture his stories and family history on video in his own words and in his own voice.
They soon developed Your Legacy Video--high-quality, TV-style biographies about a person's life and family history. It is more than just pictures in an album, diplomas on a wall, or stories passed down. A legacy video gives the complete story - in a person's own words, and goes far beyond what any home movie can. In fact, it can actually incorporate old home video footage and family photos for added benefit.
“We really believe in the value they have for families, and it is a beautiful way to preserve someone's memory as a part of the family long after they're gone,” says John Grubb, owner of Your Legacy Video.
Imagine if you could turn on your television and watch a movie on the life of your great-great grandfather. You could hear his stories first hand about the world he lived in and how the family came together. Your Legacy Video allows a person to do just that and to pass along all the family history to great-great grandchildren they will never meet.
“It's one thing to look at pictures, but to have him sitting there talking so naturally... I guess the way the photographer asked the questions just put him at ease. He told stories that were treasures that I've never heard before,” Paula Isenberg, California, after watching a Legacy Video on her uncle.
To capture an interview, Your Legacy Video records in the comfort of a person's own home. Through creative editing, they turn the history of a family into a fun and entertaining movie using interviews, family photos, home movies, music and other priceless belongings.
“There's so much I could have known about my own mother and daddy if I had had a chance for them to make a video like this,” said Diane Stroud, after watching a Legacy Video on her friend who had just turned 90.
If you have ever thought of how you will be remembered, or if you are thinking of giving your family something really special to remember, a legacy video is a unique keepsake that will be treasured by future generations.
“It’s a modern day family heirloom,” said owner Craig Vogel, “but instead of a big oil painting of your grandfather on the wall, you can have his entire life story in front of you with him narrating. It's a living, breathing legacy of that person.”
