The Immortality Project:
Some people say we all pass away, some people say we pass on. With digital technology today, we can capture the true essence of a life, the lessons learned, moments of fear and forgiveness and pass those gifts on to our children and grand children on down forever. Think about how wonderful it would be if you could hear your great, great, grandfather tell his life story in his own words, how he felt about his first love, or what he was grateful for. There isn’t, and never will be, a more powerful way to be remembered.
Questions and Answers
Q: Do I need to have cured Cancer to make an interesting film?
A: No. Everyone has a story. Sometimes it’s just the simple turning points in someone’s life that leads to a very interesting arc.
Q: What do I need to provide?
A: To make an interesting documentary, we need supporting materials, such as old family photos or movies. We can fill in the blanks, but to have the emotionally personal impact we need photos.
Q: How long will it take?
A: Most people don’t realize how much work goes into the programs they see on TV. The average sitcom has 150 people working full time on the show. Our documentary crew is much smaller but will still have camera operators, makeup artist, and sound and lighting people. It can take us 3 to 5 months to create a film so we have to be selective on which projects we choose. We will turn your story into a high quality work of art that could be shown on any television network.
Q: How long will it be?
A: It can be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending how long it takes to effectively tell the story. Sometimes less is more.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The average broadcast documentary costs between $2,000 - $5,000 per finished minute, but since we don’t need to pay for broadcasting rights for music, and stock photos and film, we can produce yours for around $1,000 per finished minute. So a 40 minute film will cost $40,000. For a high quality film like you would see on the History Channel, this is a steal.
