Our worldwide, award winning team captures and preserves these priceless and irreplaceable libraries on film. Using the latest, cutting edge technologies, these family treasures of lore, history, and wisdom will be engaging, captivating, motivating, comforting and inspiring for present and future generations.
Family Legacies Videos are filmed in 4K video, 6K video or virtual reality, and can be delivered in a variety of formats digitally downloaded to your computer, on hard drives, Blue Ray Discs, DVDs, 4K Ultra HD Discs, or the web, television, and for either professional or personal use.

Adult children: There is no better way to honor your loved ones than giving them the gift of immortality with a professional video documentary of their lives that will be cherished for generations.
Parents, grandparents and great-grandparents: The single gift your children and grandchildren will treasure most of all is your family history professionally preserved to share now and pass forward in the future – helping them to understand and appreciate whose shoulders they are standing on, deepening the connection with family, and to embrace the future with confidence.
Using state-of-the-art technology, Family Legacies’ award winning team will record history in your home or another location…
And create your Family Legacy.
Ethical Wills With Life Stories or Family Histories
Recording an ethical will is an ideal way to make sure your values and ideals live on for the next generation. Is there a moral code you live by, that you hope your children will embrace?
Are there life lessons or secrets to success that you’d like to pass on – perhaps even for generations? Is there a family member with special needs that you want to make sure is taken care of?
Express the passion and importance of your wishes, hopes and values in your own voice.
Document the story of your business or career success in a professionally filmed, edited and fascinating to watch video.
Many success stories clients have achieved tremendous success in business, the highest leadership levels in politics, and global recognition in medicine, science, the arts, law, invention and philanthropy.
Success Stories of Survival
Our Success Stories of Survival clients include Holocaust survivors, war veterans, refugees and those who have survived illness and loss. Their descendants will learn from them forever.
Virtual Reality Is Here
As Family Legacies embraces the future and the most cutting edge technology, we’re now filming in virtual reality.
This is hard to imagine but it’s true… Your descendants will be able to have an interactive experience with you and other family members that feels 100% real.
Filming Extended Family
In addition to creating a feature film about an individual or family, we also film entire extended families.
We travel to different cities and countries, to get a whole picture of the family history. Depending on your interests and budget, we arrange viewings for the entire family at a catered private theater event.
As part of the services offered by Family Legacies, we plan complete family vacations to the destination of your choice, where we bring along our entire film crew, our award winning editors, and interviewers. We film your family’s life stories and activities throughout the vacation and host a private theater screening of the draft – like the private screening of a feature film – in which we guarantee an unforgettable story that will engage your audience throughout.
