Every project is different, and there are many factors that go into providing a quote for a memorial video. Typical prices for simple videos range from $300-$500. If you are looking for a simple, professional video, we would be honored to work with you. If you are looking to go the extra mile and create something truly special, we urge you to consider our premium services.
What is the premium service all about?
Our premium service takes advantage of an editors decades of experience and artistic talent. We've digitized and remastered 8mm film. When songs run too long, we don't just fade them out - we cut out verses and sections to create short versions of the songs. When photos are torn or mishapen, we use our years of photo retouching experience to make them shine. We will help you pick photos, and help select video and audio to create powerful moments for intro and outro sequences. We add special effects like light rays, lens flares, and motion blurs. We can even animate still photos to give them life. Our premium projects range from one minute speech tributes, to ten minute full memorials. The best way to get an idea of price is by talking to one of our professional editors. Call us today.
How long does it take?
The average time it takes to produce a memorial tribute video after we receive the Getting Started Package is about 3 days. Rush projects are available. Many services require additional time and processing so please talk to your editor about your needs.
How does this service work?
After a free consultation and selecting on a package, we will conduct an initial online meeting where we will discuss the details of your project and provide you with our Getting Started Checklist. This step typically involves a 30 minute conversation about the project, followed by a period of time where we help you select and consolidate photos, videos and audio of your loved one. Once we recieve all the required materials, we start working on a first draft and provide updates as we work on your project to ensure it is being completed to exceed your expectations. This typically takes a day or two. Once we are all confident with the direction of the project, we will work to provide the final deliverable which typically takes another 24-48 hours. As we know this is a difficult time, we pride ourselves on being flexible and going above and beyond the roles of a typical video editor.
Do you have any DIY resources?
In the near future, we do have plans to release detailed instructions, templates, and graphics for people who want to replicate our emotionally powerful production techniques. It is our vision to bring more beautiful memorial videos to the world so that family doesn’t have to go it alone with iMovie or use cookie-cutter templates. That said, our prices are very affordable. We believe the memorial video is the one expense of a funeral that is often overlooked but in many ways the most important. After the funeral services are over, it's the memorial video that will be there for you and future generations.
“Nathan was amazing and we can’t thank him enough. Every year on her birthday, our family gets together and watches [the video]. Everyone at the memorial service talked about how great the movie was.” -Sandy S
