What is a Legacy Video?

A Legacy Video is a filmed video interview of your parents telling their life story, including…



Heritage & Family of Origin.

Who were their parents & grandparents, and where did they come from? What values defined their life?

Lessons Learned.

Looking back on their life, what wisdom have they gained? What are the most important lessons they learned?

Milestones & Key Moments.

What are the main moments of their life? What were their highest highs, and lowest lows? What were significant days of their career, the military, their marriage, and more?


How do they make decisions, and what determines their choices? What matters most to them? How does their faith guide affect their daily life?

Anecdotes & Stories.

What are some of their favorite stories to tell? Their first date, silliest mistake, and biggest risk taken? What day would they want to relive if given a chance? What parenting stories always bring them joy?

Family Wishes & Admonition.

What do they desire for their children, grandchildren, and future generations? What do they want them to hold firm to?

This process changes parents like yours.

Parable’s process is intentionally simple & personal. We will serve as guides for you and your family, making this process a joy to participate in as opposed to a hassle to manage on your own.

1. We get to know your parent.

We don’t want to miss any important details, so we use our coaching sessions & proprietary framework to ensure your parent is prepared and confident for their interview.

2. We interview your parent.

We film a 1-2 hour online interview with your parent walking them through key parts of their legacy. Our process not only ensures that they're articulate, engaging, and vulnerable, but that they also enjoy every part of the experience.

3. We complete the project.

We edit to improve the video & audio quality, clean up any mistakes or accidents, and create digestible 10-15 minute chapters. You receive a private link with each chapter to enjoy for years to come!
