HOW DOES MEMORIES 2 MEMOIRS WORK?
What sets Memories 2 Memoirs apart are the ways in which we create and produce your story.
Depending on the M2M level you choose, we begin by asking you to provide us your own photographs and videos, already created, that document your story.
Next, we set up a date and time to come to you…your home, your office—a location of your choosing.
There we will interview– -sit and chat about your story— the details and moments that are important to you. All the while a video camera will record our conversation in a way that will make it seem almost as if you are visiting with a friend.
After that, depending on the M2M level you have chosen, we will go to work weaving your photographs and videos and/or music and graphics, into our edited interview for a treasured multimedia keepsake.
WHAT IS THE COST OF MEMORIES 2 MEMOIRS?
When considering the cost of a Memories 2 Memoirs video, we subscribe to the adage that some things in life are priceless! At the same time, we understand that we all have budgets that define our lives and lead to decisions.
That’s why we’ve created a Memories 2 Memoirs pricing scale, beginning at a level of a one- person, interview/video with editing and post-interview production, beginning at $2,000, ranging to a multi-person interview/video with full editing and expanded production values beginning at $6,000 (associated travel expenses not included).
Whatever level best suits your needs, when completed, you will have a personalized history of the people, places and/or events that define your story, as told by those who have lived it and know it best.
WHY MEMORIES 2 MEMOIRS?
Rather than explain about about our equipment or our talented staff, we decided to let some of our clients speak for us.
“Thanks so much for creating a video with our father. The moments you captured in his interview are now memories for my family that we can never replace. You certainly have a gift of being able to tell a story and an ability to create a comfortable setting for those you interview so they can share”. —Mark Austin, Florida
“The video you created about our daughter Cameron and our business, Cameron’s Coffee and Chocolates, was just amazing. Jim and I feel as though you have given us a wonderful gift. You have touched more lives than you know. Thank you! “-— Jim and Ellen Graham, Virginia
“Thank you for providing a legacy piece for my family. I will always be grateful.” —Mark Hettermann., South Carolina
“This video is an oral history, really. Fascinating!

“As the CEO of Nashville Sports, I have not always been comfortable about interviewing, but after watching my finished video, I have a new fresh approach.
