As the holiday season approaches, many of us are chomping at the bit to have something positive to look forward to and relish in! Through the madness that is 2020, the way we celebrate birthdays, holidays, and social gatherings changed. It isn’t about the Pinterest-worthy set up anymore, it’s about navigating how to spend quality time together. And you know what? That’s how it should be.
Your thoughts towards gift-giving may have developed some over the past year, as well. 2020 has made us question the importance of tangible items and at the same time given us answers in the value of relationships and interactions. At Heritage Films, we have found a way to give the gift of a lifetime, literally.
Do you have a family member who you’d love to learn more about? An aunt or uncle, grandma or grandpa, mom or dad who would love to share their life experiences? We create films that capture the essence and stories of your loved one with our signature production. We spend a day together capturing stories, anecdotes, life lessons and family lore. Then, we create a feature-length documentary film to be treasured for generations to come.
Our approach is unique in that we are helping them tell their story. We start from the beginning by asking what they know about their ancestry and family history and go from there. We ask questions that spark emotion and jog memories that excite them, such as what was your first date like or how did your first car run?
When was the last time you asked mom or dad about their childhood? It’s rare, considering everything going on around us, we aren’t typically reminded of the beautiful resources we have sitting around the dining room table at Thanksgiving. You can learn so much about your family and yourself by asking a few simple questions. The answers will turn into passed down memories and experiences for you to share with loved ones for years to come. To capture those answers on film is truly a treasure worth having.
Your personal Heritage Film will be an unforgettable experience for the entire family and generations to come. Visit us online at www.yourheritagefilm.com to learn more about how to give the gift of a lifetime this year! Follow us on social media to see clips and excerpts from previous films.
