We take your photos, videos, slides and personal printed materials, and transform them into spectacular, permanent, one-of-a-kind DVD slideshows and videos that will last a lifetime.
We know how much your personal memorabilia means to you. We'll take those priceless materials, then we add special effects, transitions, motion, captions and other features to create an unforgettable video or photo slideshow. And we can add the music of your choice as well!
There are many ways to watch videos these days. We can provide any viewing format you want/need for your video, including:
You can certainly try! Yes…there are many ways to make a video yourself these days. But, like anything else, there's a long learning curve to figure out how to do it. WE ALREADY KNOW HOW TO DO IT! We've been making videos professionally for over 13 years. We promise you that we will make an amazing video for you much faster, with better quality, and ultimately cheaper, than you can do it yourself.
If you're on a tight schedule and need a custom DVD slideshow or video in a hurry, we specialize in rush service with expedited delivery (at additional cost). Depending on the project, we can generally turn it around in 1-5 days. Give us a call to find out more.
Times of Your Life DVDs & Video is located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but we create videos and DVD slideshows for customers around the country. Everyday we receive photos from customers and everyday we ship projects back to customers or setup digital downloads of their video.All videos are made in the U.S.A!
This is a sample video of the Platinum effects package. The Platinum package has the most effects. It's a sophisticated, professional presentation using custom special affects, transitions, backgrounds, layering, titles and much more. It adds a higher-level of visual interest.
It takes a special kind of person to create an exceptional photo montage DVD for families to use during anniversaries, life cycle events or memorials - Barry is that special person. I didn't know what to expect after sending him 70+ photos and 3 songs for our son's bar mitzvah montage, but what he created was beyond my expectations! The timing, the transitions, the opening and closing slides with text - all were perfect. The first time I watched it I cried - it was beautiful. While watching it I also realized it didn't feel like the same old redundant "photo dump" dvd so many people make at home, rather a lot of thought went into each slide transition and placement and it was truly enjoyable to watch. Thank you Barry for your hard work on our behalf - it is very much appreciated!!

We can provide ANY viewing format you want for your video. Besides DVDs, we can do:
From the date we receive your materials, it typically takes at least 10 business days to complete your order. That does not include shipping time. The completion time is dependent on the schedule of other orders in the queue, which effects package you want (Silver, Gold or Platinum) and the complexity of the order. Larger, more complex orders may take longer. If you need rush service, please let us know IN ADVANCE of placing the order.Rush service is usually available, but it does depend on the scope of your project and how many other projects are in the queue. Expedited charges will apply if there are less than 10 business days from the time materials are received to the time the DVDs have to ship. The charge for expedited turn-around depends on the package selected, the complexity of the project and the actual turn-around time required. As you might expect, projects with 24-hour turn-around will be more expensive than a project with a 5-day turn-around. Generally, prices listed are minimums and can be higher depending on the project, situation and timing.
The “best” length for a video is very subjective and depends on what you will be doing with the video, how it will be viewed, who will be viewing it, etc. For most occasions where it is viewed with a captive audience, we have found that in the 10 to 15 minute range works well. That would be about 100 to 149 photos, but we should talk about what the DVD is for and how it will be shown.
There is no limit to the number of photos you can have. The cost is based on the total number of photos/images you send us.
Yes. We can use both types of photos. For the real photos, you put them in the order you want them shown in the video, number them, and send them to us at:Times of Your Life DVDs & Video43 Schooner DriveHarwich Port, MA 02646For the digital photos on your phone, tablet, computer, etc., please call us at 952-292-7003 to talk about the best way to send them to us.
Yes. Legally-purchased music is included with each package up to a certain number of songs. The number of songs included depends on the number of photos you have. You can have more songs than are included, but they would be at additional cost.
For planning purposes, it's roughly 10 photos for one minute of music. So, if you had 100 photos, for a normal-paced video, that would be roughly three 3-minute songs. The actual number of songs depends on many factors but 10 songs/minute is a rough guide.
Your materials will NEVER be shared, publicly or privately, with anyone without your permission. We will NEVER use your photos for anything other than creating your video. All your original materials are returned at the end of the project. We may ask you if we can put your video on our website as a demo or sample, but we would NEVER do that without your permission.
