Your one-stop Photo-to-Video Montage solution center!

Expanding on our popular Wedding Montages, Buerhaus Design is now offering this service for an array of other events. Birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, memorials for loved ones... anything you can think of! In a nut shell, you provide us with hard copies of your photos, digital images or upload them to a free picture hosting site like dropbox.com or copy.com where we can pull them from. We'll then put together your montage, add music of your choice and transfer the completed photo montage to DVD and Quicktime Movie File (available for download). Your personalized montage would come with custom titling and chapter markers (if necessary). Professional DVD cases with custom artwork is also available if DVD copies are needed.

Step-by-Step Instructions

1.Email Matt for a free consultation: matt@editinglife.com Indicate what Montage Package you're interested and how you'll be getting your pictures to us. Don't hesitate to ask any questions! Matt will walk you thorugh the process:)

2. Choose your photos wisely. It's the most essential task. Make it easier by sorting your favorite and highest quality shots. Leave out any out of focus or grainy photos. Place your photos in the order that you would like them in and put them into a snug ziplock bag for moisture protection. If you are providing digital files, rename each file with the number (01, 02, 02... 97, 98, 99). You can send us a disk with the photos on them, or upload them to a site like Dropox or Copy.com then share the link with us. We highly recommend sending them digitally. Target locations and just about any place with a photo shop can turn your priceless photos into JPEGs on disk for about $30 per 100 pictures. Make sure to tell them to 'crop the images to fit'. They'll know what you mean. 300dpi is the minimum best resolution.

3. Decide the mood of your montage. Will it be somber? Romantic? Upbeat? A combo of different moods? Deciding this will help you choose your music. We can give suggestions, however choosing music is a very personal decision. All you have to do is give us the titles of the music and the artist's name. The number of photos you have will determine how many songs you will need. A good rule of thumb is one average lengthed song (4 minutes) for every 30 pictures. We can compress or extend the transitions to make them fit the song for any 'section' of any particular montage.

4. Deliver the photos to us. If you ship the actual pictures, use a trusted shipping service and don't forget to ziplock your pics. Ideally, you can send us a link to the pictures online or send us a disk with the images there as described above. Email Matt for our address!
