Helping You Celebrate Their Story
We live in unprecedented times.
The Covid-19 pandemic has ripped many families apart.
Security measures to keep the Coronavirus from spreading make it impossible to visit loved ones while they are in hospital or attending their funerals.
We understand that this is necessary, but it requires us to deal differently with our grief and the celebration of our loved ones’ lives.
How we can help
We are Video for Distant Memorials and we want to help those who cannot celebrate and grieve together.
We are a collective of freelancers – filmmakers, voiceover artists, editors and many other creatives – and we are here to help friends and family members to remember their loved ones through film.
If you have lost a loved one in times of the current pandemic, we will create a free memorial video for you. We want to help you to tell their story.
To share it with friends and family, to say goodbye and to remember and celebrate their lives.
We will guide you through the whole process and help wherever we can to create a lasting memory. Free of charge.
Pay it forward
If you would like you to pay for this service please think about donating to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 appeal.
Or to any charity of your choice.
It is so wonderful for family to submit stories and pictures to one place.
Thank you. I watched the film last night through floods of tears, it's really lovely, thank you so much!
You are all so kind to do this. We will be making a donation to the hospice.
The problem is the family are all round the UK and further afield
I heard you on R5
this morning - what a brilliant concept, well done for everything that you are doing :-)
Just wanted to say what an AMAZING service you are offering here. Never seen
anything like it.
The hardest thing is not getting comfort from those closest to us at these times.
