Getting Started With Your Montage
IDENTIFY IMAGES: Your first step is to go through pictures and videos that you might want included in your montage. Pick more than you think you’ll need, we’ll try to include as many as we can.
SORT IMAGES: As you go through your pictures and videos, think about the segments you’ve probably discussed with us and sort them into matching folders (for example, “Baby” or “Travels”).
PRIORITIZE IMAGES: Take your best pictures and place them in a folder marked “A” – these are the ones you’d really like included in your video. Move all the rest into a folder named “B”. You can never have too many photos in your “B” folder! You never know when we’re looking for a particular image or video to match what’s happening in the songs you’ve selected.
There are several ways to get your images and videos to us:
DROPBOX LINK: We’ll send you a link where you can upload all of your files. Easy!
YOUR CLOUD FOLDER: You can send us a link to your files on your own Dropbox, WeTransfer or other cloud-based file.
UPS/FEDEX: Put all your files on a zip drive and send them to us. We suggest a trackable, reliable shipper like UPS of FedEx. You could also use USPS if you track the package.
Fill out the simple agreement between us by clicking on the button below. It spells out the details of working together and outlines the 100% refund policy of your retainer fee if you decide not to continue with us.
Submit a fully refundable $500 retainer fee.
CREDIT CARD: You can securely pay using a credit card by simply clicking on “Pay Now”.
CHECK: You could also drop a check in the mail to us at MSJ Video & Communications, PO BOX 408, New York NY 10021.
We’ll get working right away on your montage. You will soon receive from us a “rough cut” of a segment to get an idea of what your project will look like.
Rough Cuts are not necessarily color-corrected, and probably don’t have all the effects added in yet. They are a work-in-progress!
You’ll review our work, provide feedback on this (and each additional segment), maybe ask us to switch some pictures or to add one that might not have been included.
If for any reason, after viewing the first segment rough cut, you do not think we are heading in the right direction, we will refund 100% of your retainer.
We’re confidant that won’t happen, and instead you’ll give is the go ahead to move forward!
We’ll continue this process the entire time with constant check-ins to solicit your feedback.
We’ll send you a finished version, where you can review it and make any final adjustments before the big show!
Upon your approval, we’ll create a final edit in High Definition and provide the video to you via a link and also on a zip drive.
Once you’ve received everything from us, you’ll come back to this page and submit your final payment.
We’re so happy you’ve trusted The Montage Maker with your event montage, THANK YOU FOR YOUR BUSINESS!
