We can’t wait to get started on your project! We’ve put together some simple directions below to help make it easy.

Getting Started With Your Montage

Find Your Pictures and Videos

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.

Review and Approve "Rough Cut"

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.

Review And Approve Final Edit

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.
