Video Photo Albums--A great gift idea for anniversaries, birthdays, graduation, & more! Even the smallest snapshot or slide will "come alive" when videotaped and set to your favorite music. To create a Video Photo Album, just gather your photos or slides (color or b&w) and number them in the order you'd like them to appear on screen. Each image, individually composed to fill the TV screen, will be shown for 6 seconds before slowly fading into the next image. In addition to photos you can also use flat memorabillia such as a wedding invitation or certificate as well as digital images provided as JPEG files. All of your materials will be returned to you unharmed.
You can make your project as long as you'd like. As a reference, 100 images will yield a tape approx. 10 min. in length. A typical Video Photo Album of 150 images will require 6-7 songs of your choice.
Family Ties can also include excerpts from your favorite home movie footage, or video clips to "tell your story". We can accept videotape in the S-VHS, VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, Hi-8mm and mini DV formats.
Call us when you're ready to make an appointment. We're open M-F 9am-5:30pm. In general, we request 2 weeks to complete your project. If you are shipping work to us, please allow an extra week.
