Weaving pictures and sound together on DVD to tell a story is what Story Weavers is all about. We aim to help you shed light on those photographs buried for years in photo albums and dust off the home videos stacked in a box in the garage and craft them into a unique DVD Photo Album or moving tribute to play for guests at a special occasion.
We offer two DVD story packages:
- Featurette provides a good option for achieving high impact in a short amount of time. A featurette can contain up to 60 images set to a single song. It provides simple image transitions only and basic pan and zoom effects.
- Main Feature Presentations are custom designed to your requirements and provide the opportunity to introduce video as well as still photograph content. We can employ a range of tools and techniques including image backgrounds and frames, animations, titling, special effects and complex image transitions to achieve a polished result that incorporate your own chosen theme and personal tastes.
To create a photo story on DVD you provide:
- A selection of photographs, video, film, or memorabilia to be included in your DVD story;
- Your music choices;
- Information on the purpose of the story creation – for example to play at a 21st Birthday party; and
- A theme for the presentation if required – for example hobbies or sporting interests for the birthday boy or girl (Main Feature only).
We then work within your requirements to create your DVD story presentation, which may include:
- Scanning and/or enhancing your photographs;
- Editing video footage;
- Selecting suitable photo frames or backgrounds, including animation where appropriate;
- Titling, captions and credits where appropriate;
- Story construction including sequencing, photo transitions and special effects;
- Customising the sound track;
- Compiling the DVD including menu design and options; and
- Designing disc and cover art.
Pricing is based on the number of photos to be included in the presentation and starts at $99.95 for 60 images (approximately 4 minutes viewing time) in a Featurette Presentation. In each package you receive two copies of your final DVD with disc labels and jacket cover printed in full colour.
