When a loved one dies, lots of people decide to create a Funeral Photo Montage Slideshow Presentation to remember and honour them. There is not usually a lot of time, and often the most that can be achieved is to gather the available photographs and throw them into some kind of automatically generated funeral slideshow. And that's just fine. After all it's about the person and not the slideshow.
What if you want to do a little better?
Even if you have limited time we can create a special kind of Funeral Memorial Slideshow Presentation for more than just being shown at the funeral service but a slideshow that will be treasured for years to come and will become a family heirloom. Some of the following except the photographs of course you may not wish to include, that is ok, after all it is your funeral slideshow.
1. The Photographs: The basis for any Funeral Slideshow of course are the photographs. We will take extra care to ensure proper scanning and remove any blemishes, scratches and the usual ageing of all photographs.
Some thought as how they are panned or zoomed or positioned will repay you many times over in audience appreciation.
2. Text (Captions):
We have all watched funeral slideshows and wondered who we are looking at. Without captions there are no answers. So, one of the things to include might be captions. From 1960 onwards some labs printed the processing date on the back of the photo so you may wish to include that as a caption.
Sometimes you are lucky enough to find a person's handwriting on the back of an old photo, we can scan that include it in your funeral slideshow. You may find handwriting from an old letter or shopping list etc. you may also use.
4. Old video footage:
We can include a video footage of the deceased. Nothing brings back a person in to our memories then a video clip. You may need to get old 8mm, 16mm or super 8 film converted into a digital format to add to your funeral slideshow.
Some people have a scrapbook with some news clippings or announcements etc. about themselves. You can scan these and also include in your funeral slideshow.
6. A DVD box cover:
All our funeral slideshows are available as a DVD Presentation - cover and disc (if ordered as an Extra)
7. A YouTube posting (with your permission of course):
Make it available for family and friends who couldn't attend the funeral so it is available anytime.
You may say“ I have a friend who can do a slideshow for me, they are great with power point presentations.” That may correct, but please remember that they will be affected by the event and unless everything is done perfectly you may find that when it comes time to for the slideshow to play at the service you may have problems.
The Powerpoint presentation may not be compatible with the the equipment at the venue, things such as music not playing or photos are missing or worse yet it won't play at all, it can easily happen and it is devastating for the grieving family. You might be lucky it might work perfectly, but isn't it too important to run the risk?
Please remember there is only one shot at the funeral ceremony and it has to be done right.
We understand time is often short, so photographs need to be quickly chosen and scanned, stories need to be told, and the funeral slideshow needs to be assembled - often in a matter of days. We will go out of our way to accommodate you at this very emotional time.
We can design that for you too?
Yes definitely. We will upload a proof for viewing to a file sharing service for you.
