Lifestyle Documentary Films

What is a Lifestyle Film?

What are the benefits?

With 97% percent of Americans owning a cell phone, why would want a lifestyle film? Cell phones are wonderful but they lack quality when it comes to professional film. Plus, cell phone video tends to be more beneficial for short clips, such as on social media. With a professional lifestyle film fully produced and edited, you will see the benefits of hiring our team.

“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.”

The Filming Process

Video Production Equipment

Unlike the massive equipment required for major motion films, our equipment is travel friendly and doesn’t take up too much space. We bring two cinematic cameras, two tripods, and two lights. We’re able to film in a small room given the small footprint of our equipment.

The Interview

The interview process is pretty straightforward. Before we arrive at your location, we will have discussed the interview questions with you beforehand. We strive for casual conversations on film to make everyone comfortable. Our job is to make you relaxed while ensuring a successful end product. On average, an interview takes about 2 hours.

B-Roll Footage

B-roll is additional footage to add to your llifestyle film. Instead of having you on camera the entire time, b-roll footage fills in areas for reference and creativity and helps set the tone of the legacy film. Shooting b-roll takes about an hour, depending on location and story.

Putting it All Together

You will have complete editorial control over your final lifestyle film. We invite you to join us during the editing process, or we will finalize the edit and send you a review link. We can always make changes and adjustments according to your wishes. We want to make sure you and your family are 100% happy with the final product. Editing time varies, but the average turnaround time is approximately 4-6 weeks.
