Heritage Werks has the unique expertise needed to create archival programs that protect and preserve a celebrity’s legacy and personal brand while supporting media inquiries, appearances, and new business opportunities.
protect your legacy And Your Brand
Highly accomplished individuals tend to accumulate objects, photographs, media, and other assets of sentimental value, public interest, and high financial value. Whether your collection contains awards, playbooks, scripts, lyrics, photos, or other professional papers or business contracts that you want organized and accessible, we will work with you, your assistants, agents, managers, lawyers, and accountants to identify your archival assets, prioritize your needs, and discuss use, donation or monetization opportunities.
We also design practical systems for collecting and providing access to assets between the many people who support a celebrity’s personal brand, including providing on-demand research and reference teams to support media inquiries and appearances.
