It’s never been easier to produce your own tribute videos. These videos celebrate engagements, anniversaries, retirements, milestone birthdays of family, friends, or people at work. They can heighten awareness of membership in a group, or remember a loved one who has passed on. And you can create them! The tools are readily available, and this book offers the tools and techniques for success. It’s all here, From how to create the content, to the equipment you need to put it all together. The author has 40 years of experience in a lifelong career in writing, directing and producing videos. And that career started with Tributes. Did a sibling just get engaged? Create a video tribute. Are Mom and Dad celebrating their 50th Anniversary? Tell their story with a tribute. Did a mentor at work announce his retirement? Create a legacy video showing his or her accomplishments. We’ll show you how to gather the pictures, videos, films, and press clippings, and how to get them into your computer. We’ll show you how to edit, and which software to use. We’ll discuss computers, cameras, lighting, microphones and more. We’ll show you examples of scintillating tributes so you can see what works (we offer an appendix full of resources, tutorials, and links). You’ll be given free resources for pictures, music, video, graphics and more. Whether your 15 or 50 (and beyond), you can do it!
