    2. Select a title for your DVD(s). "Richard's Family Memories", "Smith Home Videos: 1984-1995" are a couple of examples. Short tape titles (5-7 words) can be included on the back cover for no additional charge.
    3. Select a picture for the cover and disc if you’d like a still photo on the label. Alternatively, select a frame shot from your videos or ask us to find a nice frame shot for you.
    4. Decide on options to edit and/or enhance your videos.
    5. Think about how many copies you'll need. We recommend purchasing an archive copy on Gold DVD that can be stored for safe keeping.

    Video Additional Options

    With our experience and your creativity, the sky's the limit in creating the production you envision. We can organize, edit or enhance your collection of video memories, and offer several options that make it easy to share and enjoy your videos.

    Enhance

    Enhance your video experience by improving the picture, or adding menus, music, text, and more...

  • Exposure Correction- We can lighten or darken footage, revealing details you've never seen. View the difference here.

  • Most professional imaging and audio work is billed at $90.00/hour of editing time.

    • Menus- Say goodbye to fast-forwarding and rewinding to hunt for your favorite scene. With our custom menus, you can easily jump from a child's first steps to their graduation with the press of a button. A menu is a navigation tool at the beginning of your DVD that lets you jump right to the start of each chapter. The chapters are also listed as a table of contents on the back cover of the disc case (there is no text in the footage).
      • "Press Play" Menu Screen- Add a landing screen so your video starts when you're ready. $5.95
      • Basic Menu- Press play to watch your video straight through, or navigate by chapter to specific footage. Included are up to 6 chapters with short titles at the beginning of tapes or at a specified time code (price does not include client workstation time to identify time codes.) Basic 6-Chapter Menu $9.95, Add'l chapters just $1.95/chapter
      • Enhanced Custom Menu- Thinking about a Hollywood-style DVD menu? We can do it- chapter marks at scene changes, moving picture background, audio and more. $90.00/hour editing time

    Organize

    Don't know what is on your video tapes or how to put them in order on your disc? Let us help with one of these options:

    • Preview Onsite - Preview your footage onsite using our client workstation. Our editing software makes it quick and easy to review your footage. First hour $29.95, Additional hours $9.95/hour

There is no charge to reorder entire tapes into the correct sequence for the final cut, nor to title the tapes correctly on a purchased menu, but reordering within tapes and other custom editing is billed at $90/hour editing time.

    • Full Organizing Service - Using our best judgement from years of experience, we'll organize your footage for you (chronologically or by subject/event). $90.00/hour editing time

    What Our Clients Say

    • I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the great job you did with our family movies. I was just in NJ and we were able to view a lot of the movies together as a family. We all enjoyed seeing our loved ones come alive again. Thanks for doing such a great job of bringing that back to us!
