DVD tribute videos complete with popular funeral songs are created as a very personal way to help family and friends reflect back on the life of a loved one, and celebrate the wonderful memories shared by all.
In its simplest definition, a tribute video is a professionally created video production which consists of digital images and short video clips which are combined and played simultaneously with the music of your choice. These video tributes can be played at a funeral or memorial service, uploaded as an online memorial or burned to DVD to be played later at home on a DVD player.
Families benefit from tribute videos because:
1. They serve as an exceptional way to share memories in an audio visual presentation to compliment a funeral or memorial service.
2. They are a great tool in helping to cope with grief and loss, as well as assist in the healing process.
3. Most photos family photos are simply stored in albums and many have not been seen by friends and even other family memories. This is an excellent way to show everyone the pictures in an orderly fashion.
4. They allow client families to remember, reminisce and honor a loved one.
