Living Legacy

Rudaitis Media is the premier producer of Living Legacy documentary projects, which are designed to capture the essence of an individual's life story or an institution's history and deliver it in a professional, broadcast quality DVD. Contact us at info@rudaitismedia.com if you'd like to have your story, your business and/or personal legacy preserved in a broadcast quality documentary that generations to come will watch, learn from, and enjoy.

What's the difference between Living Legacy documentaries and home movies?
These are not home movies. They are broadcast quality films and shows that could very well be on television and are presented on a high-quality DVD packaged in a long-box with original custom-designed artwork, the same as any film or broadcast television project.

Why should I have my own Living Legacy project?
One reason is to preserve your life story for future generations of children and grandchildren. To show what Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma was all about. It's also a way of making stories that have become part of family lore come to life. Now they aren't just hearing about it, but experiencing the emotions connected with the stories as well. Through a complex, artful tapestry of contemporary images, historical documents, family photos, archival film, interviews, and an appropriate musical score, they can experience your life as you would like to share it.

Another reason is that you can share your life philosophy, reflect on past triumphs and even failures and place them in a context in which they teach a valuable lesson for future generations. So many people who saw Meet Mr. Miracle-Gro, without knowing Horace Hagedorn personally, were amazed at how much they learned about business and marketing; they also found great inspiration in his personal story of overcoming the numerous challenges in his life and also his philanthropic efforts.

Businesses or institutions can preserve their institutional histories, honor key company personnel and industry leaders.

Why should I have Rudaitis Media produce my Living Legacy Video project?
In undertaking a Living Legacy project, the subtleties involved are enormous. In some situations, you might have a professional production team that can't work well in highly sensitive family situations. Similarly, you can get someone close to the family who you feel comfortable with to do your video, but you most likely will not get the professional product that most effectively tells your story.

Rudaitis Media has the extensive production experience to deliver a professional broadcast quality project, and also the sensitivity and a successful track record in working closely with families and individuals so they are comfortable with the production team and the process. The end result is a project that's both professional and personal.

Rudaitis Media has the proven track record for delivering these Living Legacy projects, and has won numerous awards for it, including the highest industry honor you can receive. Rudaitis Media has the experience and the proven track record to get the results you want for your Living Legacy documentary project.

How much will a Living Legacy documentary cost?
That depends on the size and scope of the project you want. The projects are highly personalized, and so are the budgets. Contact us at info@rudaitismedia.com and we'll begin personalizing your project.
