It is always a sensitive and difficult time when grieving the loss of a loved one. At The Montage Maven, we recognize this and do the best we can to celebrate the life of that loved one. There are many things to keep in mind when putting together a last-minute tribute video montage.
Photos and video footage aren’t the only things you can include. In fact, diversifying content will make the tribute more entertaining for the funeral attendees, and allow you to personalize the memorial in unique ways.
Audio can also be a nice way to enhance your memorial video. You can set the slideshow to your loved one’s favorite song or even a recording of them playing music if they were so inclined. Another choice for audio could be to pre-record a narration of the deceased’s life from a family member, who could describe photos and memorabilia as they appear on the screen.
Moreover, this memorabilia can really be an excellent addition to the montage, where you can take high-quality photos or scans of diplomas, awards, poems, journal entries - anything that was important and reflective of your loved one’s life. These items can bring back sweet memories for many in attendance at the funeral.
You will also want to keep this short and sweet, as your audience can only appreciate a certain amount of media. You will start to lose that audience if it lingers on too long.
