A personal documentary honoring Dr. Elizabeth Legenhausen for her 25 years of service as Head of St. James Academy in Monkton, MD.


The primary challenge was to tell the story of her rich, 25 year career in less than 10 minutes. The bigger challenge was the lack of a budget to produce the video.


There was no time or budget to write a narrative to describe and honor Dr. Legenhausen’s career. Instead we produced a documentary style video, using only interviews to advance the story. With the help of producers Beth Rockstroh and Beth Preston, key people form Dr. Legenhausen’s career were selected for interviews, a series of questions were formulated and archival photos were gathered from the school. The tribute played to a live audience of more than 400 people, with few dry eyes remaining at the end.
