Keeping your stories alive
Traditionally life had a different pace. We would sit together as a family and pass our stories down through generations. We recognise that this is our legacy and more important than any material possession.
However, times have changed. We are busy and the younger generations don’t appreciate the value of these stories until they’re much older, by then it’s usually too late.
Families feel guilt and regret once the stories are lost. Even those with good memories eventually forget the details - within one or two generations, the stories have vanished. These stories deserve to be remembered. These stories ARE US.
We're on a mission to keep your story alive
How it Works
Step 1 - Introduction Meeting
Once initial contact is made, we set up a brief introduction meeting – we find this is a helpful step to put our elders at ease and it’s a great opportunity for them to ask any questions they may have before filming. We also provide a few tips on how to prepare for recording and collating any memorabilia they would like to include - photos, written accounts, etc.
During this meeting we arrange a date and location for filming. We accommodate the wishes and needs of the person being filmed. It is their story and they will determine where they feel most comfortable.
Step 2 - Filming Session
A 2-3 hour filming session is carried out in a relaxed and personalised environment with as many breaks as needed. We understand that nobody wants to be sitting for 3 hours straight!
Step 3 - Editing Magic
The story is then edited and crafted into a beautifully produced video - 30-40 mins long- which includes your chosen photographs, titles and music.
Step 4 - Delivery/Screening
Your Life Story is delivered to you on an external drive and Recapture Production also uploads a password protected copy on our website for easy sharing with family and friends.
