Family History

The making of a legacy film

A Blue Marble Legacy Film can be completed in as little as 3 to 4 weeks for coverage of an event or for a subject requiring minimal research and shoot locations. More complex documentaries can take two months to a year, depending on the amount of research, number of interviews, number of shoot locations, etc.

All Legacy Film productions follow the same basic process.

Discovering Your Story

We’ll assign a dedicated producer, director and writer to your project. They’ll meet with you to listen, ask questions and pour over your photos and memories. Tell us exactly what you have in mind, or let our creative team help shape and craft the story of a lifetime.

Budget and Scheduling

Based on your input and ideas, our team presents a proposed budget and production schedule that maps out the costs and timeline for creating your show.

Research, Interviews, Shooting & Script

Depending on the needs of your documentary, this phase could include historical research, conducting interviews with family, friends or others, writing a script, and cinema quality video shoots at various locations.

Music, sound, narration and final edit

Once your show has been scripted and shot, it’s time to create the soundtrack including any narration, music and sound effects. It’s also time to edit all the elements into a finished production for your approval.

A Personal Passion Brought to Life

Blue Marble Legacy Films is the inspiration of award-winning directors Ben and Cara Barineau, founders of Blue Marble, one of the nation’s premier producers of high-profile corporate films. The Barineaus dreamed of focusing their storytelling talents on the personal events and stories of private families and individuals.

With Blue Marble Legacy Films and its team of top industry professionals, the Barineaus are bringing to life their vision of professional film production for the private individual.
