The fastest way to get started on the DVD slideshow or video is to call us at 952-292-7003. We will walk you through the entire process and answer all your questions. We'll guide you through all steps until you receive your DVD or video from us.
We can provide any viewing format you want for your video, such as DVDs and/or high-definition video files, either on flash drive or we could send you a link to download the file. We can also setup a private streaming webpage for your video. The webpage is great for sharing the video with family and friends.
Anxious to get going, but don't know all the details yet? No problem. Use our Quick Order Form to get things moving. If you're on a tight schedule, or something unexpected came up, and you need a custom DVD 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 2-5 days. Give us a call to find out more.
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. 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. And 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.
