Five Easy Steps for Creating a Photo/Video Montage with Take One Solutions

One of the best ways to celebrate life events like anniversaries, birth announcements and birthdays, graduations, weddings etc. is to create a photo montage video from your family photos and/or video to show at the event.
A popular option is to deliver the montage on DVD or Blu-ray with a continuous play option so it can play during the entire event.

Here is what I'll need from you if you would like me to create a montage for your life event:

1. Determine the montage style and length you want. There are four basic montage styles: a) Traditional slide projector style, b) "Ken Burns" style, c) High energy animation style, and d) "Kid in picture" style. Here is a video with samples of each:

See here for a description of the various styles.

A typical montage will run about 4-6 seconds per photo, so 50 photos will give you around 3-5 minutes run time. 

Pricing for a custom 50 digital photo montage using any combination of styles a, b or c is only $129 and include basic color and red-eye correction on your photos, a custom title and closing screen, and up to 5 captions. Additional digital photos are $1 each. The montage will be delivered on DVD, Blu-ray, or YouTube.

2. Gather and sequence your photos and/or videos. You will probably have a specific sequence in mind for your photos/videos. When you send your media you can do either of two things to communicate the sequence to me: a) prepare a list of you media in the order you wish them to appear, or b) rename you media files with a sequential number.

3. Deliver your media to Take One Solutions. Once I have received your order I will set up a folder at my website for you to upload your media to.

4. Optionally provide humorous captions, credits, etc. Captions, credits, etc. can add a lot of interest to your montage. Just tell me what you would like added, and to which photo and I'll do the rest.

5. Receive your finished video. I will upload a private preview of your montage for you to review. Once you have approved it, I will create and deliver your choice of DVD, HD Blu-ray, or Web video. The DVD and Blu-ray versions will contain an opening screen with the option to play once, or play continuously.
