CUSTOM DOCUMENTARIES
A video keepsake honouring your loved one or a special event to be shared and enjoyed

A Custom Documentary preserves the stories and memories of a family member or friend in their own words.

'The process was well organized and easy for my father to cope with. Very professional. I became very emotional watching my dad relay his stories - beautiful." ~ Custom Documentary client

As It Happened Productions creates a professional quality production - a high-end keepsake - that can be adapted to accommodate the needs of every individual client. Custom Documentaries can also be made to celebrate a company milestone, chronicle a couple's journey to be married, document the birth of a child, or archive any type of special event.

A basic Custom Documentary package will run up to 60 minutes in length, can include up to five (5) photos and one (1) existing video clip. The key element is the unique interview of the subject.
We have partnered with numerous professional Winnipeg artists and companies to provide our clients with an endless number of services to access when creating a Custom Documentary. These options allow you to uniquely tailor your production to best represent the subject.

As It Happened Productions' process has been designed to support the needs of older Manitobans. Filming locations are decided upon by the subject, staff and film crew are experienced working with older generations and specially designed questionnaires are used to to ensure a successful interview.

An Executive Producer's role is to provide or procure a film's financing and confirm the project has maintained its outlined objective. Often, an Executive Producer secures the rights to a project. In this case, that would mean ensuring the subject's interest in participating as well as the collecting of existing pertinent materials. As the client, you are the Executive Producer.
