Out of your Price Range?

The level of equipment and work involved in creating our films means they may not be within everyone's price range. If you are interested in recording the story of an important family member or someone essential to your community group, then try sharing the cost. These films are made to benefit everyone and most people close to that person think that recording their life story is a great idea too!
