Although Ezra Productions specializes in video production in Los Angeles, we are suckers for a story that brings out the humanity in science. In 1977, NASA launched two golden records with shelf lives of one billion years into space aboard twin Voyager space crafts traveling in different directions. The records are time capsules of sorts, containing a curated group of sounds and pictures that illustrate a story of the human race, the emotions we are capable of having, and the things we hold dear. A cultural Noah’s Ark, if you will.

In the words of Jimmy Carter, “The records are presents to life forms on other planets from our small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings.

NASA appointed a committee headed by scientists Carl Sagan and Annie Druyan, to execute the “Voyager Interstellar Message Project.” On the record they decided included sounds such as the wind, a kiss, a mother’s first words to her baby, and the heartbeat of a woman madly in love. They sent music ranging from Mozart to Navaho Indian chanting. They sent visuals, ranging from the DNA structure to a family portrait to rush hour traffic in Thailand. Although they seem mundane, the sounds and images they preserved could be immensely valuable thousands of years from now because they’ll provide insight into what life was like in 1977.

What if we started passing on the lessons we’ve learned and the memories we’ve accumulated throughout our lives, or even left words of comfort to those we would inevitably leave behind?

Our Family Legacy Films allow individuals to pass life's most important life lessons, stories and family history to future generations.

Our Family Legacy Films allow individuals to pass life’s most important life lessons, stories and family history to future generations.

If you could have your own “golden record” of life to leave for future generations of your family, what sounds, pictures (and videos) would you include in it? What stories would you tell? 

If you could receive a golden record depicting your family members’ lives from of hundreds of years ago, what would you want to know about them? Sure, what they look like, but what about their stories? The lessons they learned? The people and possessions they value most? Their body language?


Recent advancements in digital technology (such as the invention of the iPhone) have made it possible for us to record sounds and images of our lives at virtually any time. Unlike verbal transcription, these recordings preserve our memories through time and space exactly as they happened. Unlike printed photos and tapes, which fall apart over time, your digital photos, videos, and sounds will be around forever.

At Ezra Productions, we create “golden records” for families in the form of videos. The videos we produce are a mix between time capsules and biographies.

In our Family Montage Films, we curate the best moments from your personal recordings and edit those little moments into yearly short films set to music.

In our Day-in-the-Life Films, we spend a day with you and/or your family to dig deeper into their daily life and stories. A videographer and director would come to your home and record the little moments that make up your life, and even interview family members about age-appropriate, meaningful topics.

These are the perfect gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, Chanukah, and New Years. Check out our Family Video Production page to learn more about the unique legacy videos we produce for families all over the world.
