Typically, the structure of a Legacy of Life production is as follows:I take a professional portrait of you. This portrait maybe formal or casual in a setting you feel most comfortable in. This portrait is usually used as the title for the production, with music (usually the instrumental lead-in from the first piece of music)We produce a 10 minute welcome video message of you. Any subject, format or setting is possible. One to five “chapters” each covering a different theme or period of time, consisting of a chapter title, 20-25 photographic images, and a piece of music.
