WHY LASTING LEGACIES?

Lasting Legacies

I was just 14-years-old when my grandmother passed away. As I’ve gotten older I now look back and wonder about all of the stories and memories that may have been lost when she passed. The ability to hear her story first-hand would have been a treasure for my family and even more special to show my kids one day.

While I may not have been able to document her life, I’m passionate about bringing that opportunity to others.

FAMILY BUSINESSES

Family owned businesses are dynamic participants in today’s world economy, but are often tricky to navigate. Chances are your posterity doesn’t know the entire story. 

Our legacy films have opened doors for family members to have conversations with the founders and originators of their family business that may not have occurred without our film starting that dialogue. 

From start to finish all films are created and kept in the strictest confidence. Maintaining and perfecting client confidentiality is incredibly important to us. 

Video production with a family-first mindset.

 Our ultimate goal is to help others tell their story. Whether  families, businesses or organizations we strive to give you the platform and voice to be both seen, and heard.

The roots of ElderSpan reach back to the early 1990s, when Greg and Carol Griffin were seeking care for Carol’s mother, Louise Kionka, who was battling Parkinson’s disease.  Not finding what they were looking for, Greg’s expertise as a hospital administrator and Carol’s as a Registered Nurse motivated them to develop a new resident-centered, healthcare-focused assisted living model by opening The Pines in Prairie du Sac in 1995.

Greg and Carol first met in Tomah, Wisconsin in 1965. Carol was headed to nursing school and Greg was being shipped off for Navy training, but after just one date they knew what they had was something special. Six weeks later Carol’s telephone rang and it was him, this was the start of three years of long distance romance and hundreds of letters back and forth. The rest is history.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if my parents don't feel comfortable on camera?

We understand that talking in front of a camera can be intimidating and challenging thing to get used to. We can stop and start as many times as the interviewee needs. We guarantee by the end it will feel like a typical conversation with a good friend.

What should we do to prepare?

Prior to the shoot day, someone from our team will work through an outline with you to ensure that we capture everything you’re looking for. Upon finalizing the outline start sorting through photos and family videos that may be useful to embed in the legacy film. This does not need to be complete prior to the shoot day but it’s always great to have a head start!

How long after filming will we recieve the final film?

Post Production on our legacy films can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks depending on the length of the video, how much editing is needed to put together a cohesive story, and revisions. 

Do I own the final film?

Yes. Your film is yours to share and distribute as you wish!

Can my parents film their interviews together?

Typically we steer away from this. Having them do individual interviews allows us to capture both of their sides of certain stories and gives us more options to choose from when editing the film together. However, if it makes sense within the story then of course parts of their interviews can be done together.
