DVD tribute videos are a collection of photos, videos, spoken words and music interwoven together to memorialize the life of a loved one who has passed away.


You might have seen a tribute video played at a funeral home or during a funeral service and thought it would be beyond your capabilities to assemble one. But, if your funeral director has tribute video software, you can be assured that your loved one’s tribute video will be exceptional.


Instead of worrying about another detail of your loved one’s funeral, your funeral director can put together a tribute video for you. Using the latest funeral software, your funeral director can create a cinematic quality video with the pictures and videos you provide him. You can be as involved in the process as you would like.


As you look through the pictures you’ve saved and view the videos you’ve taken of special events, parties, weddings, graduations, or even everyday moments you happen to capture on videotape, you may get a sense of a pattern you’d like to follow. Some people like to focus on each year’s birthday, letting the images tell the story of a life progressing through time. Or maybe you’d prefer to start at the beginning, from the earliest pictures or videos available, and working through each year’s events. Recalling the music from each year, and adding even a snippet of favorite songs, is a wonderful way to evoke the person as well as the era in which he lived.


Once you gather the pictures, you’d like to have them displayed in a specific order, or you have a particular song in mind. You can share these thoughts with your funeral professional and he can take care of the rest. The resulting DVD tribute video will be a very personal, very moving memorial to your loved one that can be viewed again and again.


If your loved one was passionate about something, you might want to give that center stage in your DVD tribute video. Were they an outstanding teacher, a dedicated nurse, a respected business person? Whatever gave meaning and purpose to the life that so recently ended will give meaning and purpose to your memorial. The tribute video will be a video portrait of that life and show the world just how special it was to you, and to others.


Creating a tribute video using a collection of photos, videos, spoken words, and music is a wonderful way to memorialize the life of someone you loved. The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words” holds true, as you and others watch and hear him as he was on special occasions or in everyday, candid moments captured on film.
