We have tried to make the creative process simple yet flexible.

Whether you want to choose every element, or you want your producer to guide the creative choices, we're ready to tell their story. 

How it works

01

Friends or family can contact us directly via the contact form. We will be in touch with you within 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays).

03

02

A Producer will be assigned to work with you. They will contact you via email and guide you through the process from the start.  We can look at what media you have, how friends and family can contribute via Dropbox, and what additional content we can make to help show the depth of their life.

We'll help you pick music, poetry, or write anything you'd like to include. As a team we'll help you think of creative ways to tell and share their story.  We may be physically distant, but we still have so much we can share through creativity. 

04

The finished video will be sent to you via Dropbox/e-mail. It's up to you how you share it, and we'll help you here too if you like. Whether you want to share it with friends over social, video conference, or email out personal links, we can help. 

What can we include?

The photos you've collected as a group of friends and family over the years tell their story. We'll help you get them together.

A Eulogy or poetry can be recorded yourselves at home, or by a professional voiceover artist. We also have professional voiceover readings available (see our process page for some examples). 

Using images or home videos you can show your loved ones' passion for work, hobbies, arts, or sports.

Record your own messages, stories, or ask others to send in theirs. In written text, voice notes, or smartphone videos, we can help you show everyone what they meant to you.

Photographs of maps can help you show their most significant locations - where you met, where they lived, or show significant journeys through animation. 

Edit Styles

Your producer and editor will work with you to find a video style to suit you

Music

If there is a popular song you would like, we can find it.

Or we have access to a bank of talented artists who will allow us to use their music for free.
