With the passing of a loved one, we celebrate their lives. Memories of the good times we had with them come flooding back and in saying goodbye we tell the stories. We relive their lives and thus relieve our own lives. Of course, we cry because it’s sad that we will not see that person again, but funerals have become more of a celebration of that person’s life over the years and that celebration should be recorded.
Video: Many people don’t think about saving this time with a video of the event, but in doing so we save some of that person for the future. It’s especially meaningful when someone can not make it to the funeral. People will take out their phones and record some of it, but having a professional video of the funeral can make it truly memorable and more importantly, watchable. We use professional sound equipment, making the audio easy to hear, plus the footage is smooth and stable. We edit the footage and deliver it on a USB stick or BluRay disk.
Slide Show: Taking the images that have been taken over a lifetime and putting them to music as a slideshow, a production if you will bring back the memories even better than words. All the attendees can share in the photos, remembering their lives throughout the years. Them as little kids, them as highschool graduates. Their weddings, vacations and kids birthday parties, all the memories come flooding back with the photos.
Prices for Celebration of Life videos begin at $250, this price includes one location, be it the funeral home, the church or the graveside. Additional locations are $100 each. So if you would like the Rosery filmed on one evening and then the Mass and Graveside filmed the following day the total would be $450. All footage is edited and delivered on a USB stick for viewing on a computer or smart TV or on a BluRay disk.
A celebration of Life slideshow with up to 200 images is $225.00. This includes copying off all the photos or slides and putting them together with music. Most photos should stay on the screen from 7-10 seconds, not too long but long enough so people can see what they are and who is in them. We can then loop the show so that it plays over and over again giving the attendees a chance to see the photos. The show can be set to run on a DVD player, a computer or directly on a smart TV.
