A legacy film is an extraordinary tribute. Using touching interviews, still photographs, beautiful video and music, I'll craft a loving and meaningful film to celebrate and honor the legacy and memory of your loved one.
Every legacy film is different - just like every individual is different. Here's a general sense of how the filming and editing process works.
Together, we'll develop a production plan, which typically includes several sit-down interviews with family members or friends on camera. I have interviewed thousands of people during my career, everyone from Hillary Clinton to Cindy Crawford to neighbors, executives, children, and - of course - ordinary folks. I can help you look, feel and sound comfortable and relaxed.
The editing process takes one to three months. I devote significant time, care, attention and resources to legacy films - because they deserve it. A typical legacy film runs about 5 to 10 minutes. They are wonderful tributes for social media and to hand down to generations to come.
Legacy films are by commission and begin at $22,000.
Before launching Sound Originals, I spent 10 years as a television news reporter, producer and anchor at NBC, ABC and CBS stations. I live in Seattle, Washington.
My work has been honored with 5 Emmy Awards, several Edward R. Murrow Awards, and an Alfred I. duPont, widely considered the television counterpart to the Pulitzer Prize. Both the duPont and the Pulitizer are awarded by Columbia University.
In addition to videography, I am a polished interviewer and writer. I offer gentle guidance and feedback to help everyone feel natural and comfortable during on-camera interviews.
