Frequently Asked Questions about Loving Legacy Video Interviews

• Are your services limited to the Pacific Northwest or do you also travel?
Yes, our service is available nationwide. Cost is dependent on location and extent of travel but we are happy to discuss the details based on your location and specific needs.
• How is this service different from doing the same thing myself?
Very. Doing family trees, genealogy work, and grandparent interviews is great. Hiring Loving Legacy Video to do it professionally is even better, as we are experienced at interviewing, camera operation and video editing. We ask introspective questions, and often get deeper answers as the speaker is answering as though the story has never been told.

• Can I see the questions that will be asked ahead of time?
Yes, we’re happy to share an incomplete list of the questions prior to day of filming as part of the ‘Welcome Kit’ that we provide upon scheduling of a session complete with questions, articles, and videos as food for thought around getting ready for the interview if you would like to prepare in advance.

• What do I need to do to prepare for the day of filming?
Mainly to ask your self and family members what if any area of life you’d like to focus on, particular stories, events or experiences that you’d like to make sure to cover. And collecting the photos or items that you’d like included in the video for us to capture on the day of filming.
