We have all seen documentary films about extraordinary people and far away places. At Toolbox Pictures we believe that everyone has a story worth telling, and we would love to work with you to create a Legacy Film about you or someone in your life. A Legacy Film is a personal documentary that is designed to showcase the life of it's subject in a beautifully cinematic way so that friends and family will treasure it for years to come. A Legacy Film makes a wonderful gift as well, whether the film's subject is just starting out and finding their way in the world, or in the prime of their life and full of ideas and passion, or perhaps they are nearing the end of their life and would like an elegant way to share what they've learned with their loved ones.
Toolbox Pictures offers a wide range of filmmaking options designed to meet anyone's needs and budget. We will start with a face-to-face meeting to discuss the length and breadth of the project and then work together to arrange a production schedule. We will incorporate in-depth and beautifully filmed interviews, archival photographs and film or video footage, and cinematically shot scenes of the film's subject living their life and doing what they love. Please enjoy the excerpts below which were taken from Legacy Films we made about photographer Marianne McCoy and author Nayra Atiya.
