If you want to create a personalized memorial service, it’s a good idea to create a video for the event. It can be a touching tribute to your loved one and is a good way to help people have happy memories rather than focusing on the death aspect.

We at Tindall Funeral Home offer elegant, sophisticated funeral services, and have seen that many people are now choosing to create video memorials for their deceased loved ones.

Tips To Follow

Here are some pointers on how to create a superb and effective one.

  • Look for video clips of notable achievements, important events and milestones, and pleasant memories. It’s a good way to create a video where the persona shines through. Select candid videos and as those seem more real, rather than something formal.
  • Some videos do not have voice-overs or sounds and you can select a good background score for them. Opt for music that evokes positive emotions and will help people with the healing process. Make sure that the songs do not have any offensive lyrics or loud beats, and that the ones you pick are best suited for a funeral service.
  • A voiceover can set the right tone and will add a coherent touch to your videos. These are useful when you are relying on pictures and do not have sufficient video clips. You can tell your story, share your personal experiences, and set the right tone in the video. This type of video will have a positive impact on the audience at the service.
  • It is important to use high-quality software, as this will help to create an appealing and crisp video without any breaks or choppy transitions. You can check out some useful video editing tutorials online to learn how to do this
