  • Graduation parties: These videos typically show pictures of the graduate from the time he or she was born to his or her senior year in high school. These pictures are timed to the graduate's favorite songs or songs that are appropriate for graduation. 

  • Weddings: Video montages are also popular at wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners. Standard wedding video montages are divided into three sections. First, the bride is showcased, and her pictures from birth until wedding day are timed to music. Second, the groom's pictures are shown. Third, the bride and groom are shown together.

  • Anniversaries: Video montages are also great for anniversaries. These videos often contain pictures of the couple during their marriage. However, they can also contain childhood pictures and pictures of friends and family members that are significant to the couple.

NOTES AND TIPS ON MAKING A VIDEO MONTAGE
Getting your Video Montage made is easy! Just follow the following steps:

1. Determining the order of the photos. The order is very important, as it will play a role in determining the song choice. For example, a wedding video can be arranged in several ways.

  • Some customers divide the video into three segments: pictures of the bride, pictures of the groom, and pictures of the bride and groom together.

  • Some customers have decided to put pictures in groups: bride and groom doing sports, bride and groom graduating, bride and groom in college.

2. Selecting the photos. It is important that you choose the right photos. Only you can determine which pictures have significance. But here are some guidelines to helping you choose which ones might or might not look good on video:

  • Avoid pictures that have a lot of damage. Photos with damage typically do not look good on video. We can digitally correct damage to a certain extent for an additional charge.

  • Use pictures with action. Pictures that show people doing things (ie. Playing sports, singing in a concert, etc.)

  • Choose a good number of photos. The number of photos is important because a video that is too long will lose the audienceís attention. However, a video that is too short skips important moments in the subjectís life. Be sure all age groups, relatives, friends, and significant events are included, so that the video includes necessary and important ages, people, and events.

3. Choosing songs. The song selection is also very important because it sets the mood for the video. Here are some things to consider when selecting the music:

  • Mood. Some videos or sections of the videos provide opportunity for fun songs. For example, in graduation videos, some people choose to do fun kid songs for the subjectís younger years. For other videos, such as wedding videos and anniversary videos, it is oftentimes a good idea to choose songs that are important or sentimental to the subjects. For example, you might want to choose the coupleís favorite song.

  • Length. Typically, pictures should be up for around 6 or 7 seconds each (making it about 1 minute of song for every 10 pictures). Therefore, you should coordinate the number of pictures with the approximate length of the songs. Keep in mind, though, that FlipBox Productions can edit music to make songs shorter or to combine songs.
