Tributes

By Video MemoiresSome of life’s moments are just too special to live only once. It might be laughter, gasps, or tears; but you can only underestimate the emotional charge when cherished photos are coupled with select music, appropriate transitions, and a few visual effects. Spirits soar, hearts warm, giggles erupt. We don’t know just why it happens; but we love to make it happen.

For office parties, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, or virtually any occasion, we can choreograph your photos with your favorite music selections into a keepsake video so you can relive and celebrate those times over and over. Have a more practical job in mind? The same techniques, combined with narration, can make very effective documentaries, or even instructional or training videos. Just let us know your particular needs, and we can produce that emotional charge you are looking for. You supply us with photos, slides, and scrapbook items of the person you what to honor or roast and we can put together a tribute that is truly a unique gift.

Organizational Tips for your Photo Tribute

1. Organize the pictures you are wanting to use in the order you want them to appear and number them on the back either with a pencil, quick drying pen or a post-it type note you can write the number on.

 

Don’t use a regular ink pen because the ink can transfer to the other photos

 

Tip -Try to choose pictures that are horizontal (wider than they are tall) because they will more closely fit your television screen. If a picture needs special cropping, such as a person you don’t want in the picture, cover that person with a post-it type note, or make sure you let us know when you bring it in. We can also use announcements, clippings and other memorabilia.

 

2. Choose what music you want played with your video. Then, on a sheet of paper, list which song you want played with what pictures. The average time that each picture stays on the screen is about 6 seconds, that’s about 10 pictures per minute. That time can be lengthened or shortened to fit your song or the song can be repeated or faded out to fit your pictures. One song will cover about 20 to 25 pictures.

 

3. Next, you’ll need to come up with a simple beginning and ending title for your video. Then bring your photos, music and instruction list to Video Memories. The rest is up to us.

 

We ask that you allow two weeks for us to get the project done. It doesn’t actually take us two weeks to complete it, but it allows us to get the jobs done in the order they come in. If we do finish the order before that two week period, we call you and let you know it is done. If you can’t wait the two weeks, we may be able to have someone work overtime for an additional charge to place your order ahead of everyone else’s. Make sure to tell us if it is a surprise, so when we call to let you know it’s finished we don’t spoil the surprise.
