PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
An audio visual recording has the distinct advantage of showcasing the storyteller — his/her facial expressions, manner of dress, gestures. A full length audio visual interview is approximately 1hour15 to 1hour30 in length. The final product is delivered to you as a flash drive. It is standard to include a transcript (written version of the interview) as well as an abstract (a summary/outline with timestamps for changes in topic) so that parts of the interview can be easily accessed.
FILMED INTERVIEW WITH DIGITAL PHOTOS AND MEMORABILIA
When you incorporate photos and memorabilia to support your story, you add exponential dimension and interest. In many cases, you will literally preserve precious heirlooms. Letters, important documents, samples of artwork, travel maps, family trees, etc. prove invaluable in conveying the story. Youngest of 5 children? Reveal the family portraits that showcase those relationships. Immigrant? Pull your naturalization papers from obscurity. These will be seamlessly worked in during the editing process. Here, too, the final product is delivered as a flash drive of the interview, along with a transcript and an abstract. Your scanned documents will be returned to you.
FILMED INTERVIEW PLUS PHOTOBOOK
Complement the film with an exquisitely designed book, which tells your story in pictures, words and documents. Hand written letters transcribed. Additional research included as appropriate.
