The video biographies we are producing are personalized family histories that trace the genealogy of relatives as far back as family members can document. Using old photos, restored documents, interviews of people the clients recommend, home video and information supplied by family historians, we are able to weave into the story long departed ancestors and include them in our modern-day chronicle that is preserved on a DVD.


The result is an enthralling and invaluable, historical, video account that becomes a priceless family legacy. If you have seen the Biography program on the A & E Network then you have a good idea of the style of story we produce. The main difference is that our biographies are completely personalized, exalting in the virtues of each family. And, like the programs on A & E, we adhere to very high standards of video production.

 

Luxury Video Family Biographies

The video biographies we are producing are personalized family histories that trace the genealogy of relatives as far back as family members can document. Using old photos, restored documents, interviews of people the clients recommend, home video and information supplied by family historians, we are able to weave into the story long departed ancestors and include them in our modern-day chronicle that is preserved on a DVD.


The result is an enthralling and invaluable, historical, video account that becomes a priceless family legacy. If you have seen the Biography program on the A & E Network then you have a good idea of the style of story we produce. The main difference is that our biographies are completely personalized, exalting in the virtues of each family. And, like the programs on A & E, we adhere to very high standards of video production.

These are not home movies. We use professional, broadcast quality, digital, HD video equipment, and experienced television producers, technicians, cameramen and editors. I personally write, narrate, and oversee the entire production, making sure that the biography -- or family story -- is of the highest technical and literary standards. Furthermore, we can produce these histories in any language.


As you can see, our biographies are the Patek Philippe of the industry; and our clients have been the top echelon of families in America; two are on the Forbes 400 list.


The biographies offer these special families an opportunity to address many critical issues that are unique to them: succession, family philosophy, values and investment strategies. These are key issues every family with substantial liquidity needs to consider as they evaluate their alternatives for effectively managing their wealth and continuing important family traditions.


Our biographies are unique in that they take advantage of the latest technology which allows us to use buttons to partition or set aside a portion of the DVD  usually an hour or more -- to, only, tell the family story. In another easily accessed section of the DVD, our clients have the option of dealing with thoughts on succession, legacy, values and beliefs, anecdotes or other issues.


Finally, and most importantly, everything we do from start to finish is kept in the strictest confidence. As a professional, practicing journalist, for 35-years, I understand and have always abided by the tenets of complete  absolute and unconditional -- client confidentiality. Furthermore, all of our employees must sign confidentiality agreements before they can work for us.


And while some of our clients proudly show the biographies to friends and associates, as incomparable representations of their accomplishments, others have realized that the stories are equally important as instruments for legacy planning. On the same separate, easily assessed, portion of the DVD we encourage our clients, if they so choose, to speak freely about the following:


The accumulation phase of the family's life, as well as the distribution phase, of acquired knowledge.
The achievement of various life goals along the way, such as buying a home, putting children through school, growing a successful company and philanthropic endeavors.


Family philosophy, strategies, anecdotes, legends, secrets (optional), values, travels and special adventures.
And ultimately, wishes for the conservation and transfer of the estate to the next generation.

 

Living Ethical Will

Many of our clients have expressed a desire to document their important thoughts, values, principles and beliefs and place these important desires on a DVD. Our corporate instrument allows the CEO or Founder to preserve the corporate legacy of a family business or foundation. The interview is conducted in the presence of an attorney who can guide and advise the client while the statements are being recorded on video. Our goal is to always provide our clients with the most impeccable services available. The Ethical Will is designed and produced based of the individual needs and goals of each family. Our expertise in advising and guiding our clients makes the experience enjoyable and stress-free.
 

Corporate Informational Videos

Corporate informational videos are valuable tools for informing potential customers about the services offered by the company. The videos can be used to educate employees about company policies or explain the uses of products and services offered by the company. The DVDs are easy to view and distribute and can be used as promotional instruments as well. Some clients have used portions of the company videos on their web sites.

Video for Foundations

Our productions for foundations cover many facets. Clients have used explanatory videos to explain the services they perform. As fundraising instruments, our descriptive videos give potential donors a clear understanding of the depth of services the foundation provides as well as examples of the accomplishments of the organization. Using interviews with directors of the foundations as well as video statements from patrons and clients, we are able to produce a compelling story which vividly describes the work of the foundation.

Multimedia Productions

We have designed individual multimedia DVDs for families or institutions where there are several mediums to be blended into one easy-to-use format. Families who have accumulated years of film or video tape and who have other documents can have it all consolidated on our personally designed, digital DVD that incorporates all of the information on one source. Our unique process of combining several formats into one platform has become very popular with families who want to share material from different branches and include it all on a source for all to enjoy.
