Celebrate your life stories with video

Every family has a storyteller

Your grandfather, your sister, your great-aunt Bea. You.

Legacy videos, or “video biographies,” allow storytellers to capture cherished moments from their past.

While family photo albums packed with snapshots have their place, video adds voice, movement, and personality – the sound of your grandfather’s voice, your mother’s laugh, the way your auntie tips her head as she recounts her favorite family tales.

Video adds life to story and adds stories to lives.

We are passionate about documenting people and their stories in a way that’s both personal and authentic. The result? The stories and the memories of your loved ones live on.

Don’t let cherished memories slip away

Don’t let cherished memories slip away
Time has a funny way of sneaking up on us.

Have you thought about capturing your family stories – but don’t know where to start? Are you concerned you may be running out of time?

Time does have a funny way of sneaking up on us – with every moment that passes, memories fade. Those all-important, formerly razor-sharp details become fuzzy … and begin to slip away.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Video biographies can tame the memory monster and create a lasting legacy for your loved ones.

We’re here to take the stress off of you, and help make sure you capture the voice, personality, and stories of your loved ones on video, before it’s too late.

 

 

Professional, Personalized Production

Professional, Personalized Production
You can trust the experienced pros at Magnus Media Group to preserve your cherished memories.

Senior videographer, Grant Fu, has over 30 years as a director, video editor, cameraman, and audio engineer. He produced his first legacy video way back in 2001. Production manager, K’ai Roberts Fu, has over 20 years in administration and project management. She will organize all the details of video project, so you don’t have to. Together, we have a proven track record of putting nervous people at ease on camera, and eliciting stories, and getting wonderful, heart-warming results.

Detailed preparation and personable, considerate on-site production

Every Legacy Video project begins with a pre-production call. We start by helping you choose the topics and questions you want us to focus on for the video. We discuss family photographs and ways we can include them both during the interivew, and  in the finished Legacy Video. We talk about what will happen on the day of the shoot, and whether you or one of us will be asking the questions.

When we arrive on site to record your loved ones, we bring professional-quality cameras, lights, and mics for the best quality video possible. Just as important, we take time to get to know the people being recorded, so they are comfortable with us before we start recording.

After the interviews are done, we go back to the editing studio and incorporate the interviews and photographs into a video experience which links friends and families to memories they can cherish … forever.

Pass on wit, wisdom, and a wealth of memories

Pass on wit, wisdom, and a wealth of memories
Who in your life holds the stories you want to hear? Whose voice needs to be shared?

Often our elders are the holders of rich lore (and sometimes just plain old embarrassing tales). They know all about great-aunt Gertrude, and great-uncle Joe. Details about your great-great-grandparents, and how they began their life in this country. And stories of their own lives — full of rich detail, laughter, and sorrow.

Or maybe it’s the story of your life. Your first “real” job. That first date with your partner. The birth of a child. These big milestones are often the focus of legacy videos.

But legacy video is just as compelling when it comes to sharing the smaller stories. Stories that elicit a giggle, a smile, or a tear.

Like the time your grandmother accidentally substituted salt for sugar when baking a cake to celebrate a big family event. Or your grandfather’s pet name for his vintage car. A favorite song that your parents danced to in their youth.

And dozens more memories, all unique to the storyteller; all important to friends and family.

Family stories and family history. Shared by those you love, in their unique and precious voices.
