VIDEO CREATED FOR THE SERVICE
Today's services can be anything you want them to be. With our videos, folks can share their sympathies whether or not they're able to attend in person. We can also see and hear from the person we've come to celebrate.
VIDEO OF THE SERVICE & TESTIMONIALS
Memorial services are special events that can be as unique as the person they're celebrating. When guests gather afterwards, it's a perfect opportunity to video messages of love and sympathy for all to share.
With the VideOBIT, we take your written obituary, combine it with your pictures and videos and add professional narration. As you'll see by this example, it heartwarmingly brings to life the story of your loved one.
THE PHOTO VIDEO
It happens all the time. Boxes of photos get passed from one generation to the next. But unless there's documentation on the back, the stories behind the photos get lost. Our Photo Videos keep the memories & stories alive.
THE LEGACY VIDEO
Why wait til it's too late? Give the one you love the chance to tell their story--or have others help tell their story. We conduct interviews, collect your photos and videos and help you tell the story of a life in one video.
THE LAST VIDEO
The Jackson sisters came to us because their mother was nearing the end. We sat down with Nancy so she could tell her story and answer their questions. This video sample is accompanied by the beautiful music of Reina de Cid.
MILESTONE VIDEOS FOR A SPECIAL DAY
Birthdays, anniversaries, retirements. Even when everyone can't get together to celebrate the big day, they can all gather in one space on video. In this sample, taken from a longer video starring many friends and family, Pam's friend Amanda sends Pam a heartfelt message, with pictures.
TESTIMONIAL VIDEO AT YOUR GATHERING
We've been told it's the best gift you can give someone--a video made of friends at your party telling stories, sending love and cracking jokes. As you'll see here, it's all about walking around with our cameras and talking to people.
CAPTURING BIG ANNIVERSARIES & EVENTS
We've attended some big anniversaries--like the retirement of a major league ball player, the 100 year anniversary of Vision Loss Resources and, in this video, the Centennial of Camp Fire, featuring our US Senator!
Every life is full of stories. At Hold Tight Video, we're a married couple (Gary and Pam) who make videos out of our home in the Twin Cities. Pam's a big reader and a great storyteller. And Gary likes to use his love of video to help tell people's stories. Together, we love how these stories bring us together, give us joy, and provide us comfort--and something to hold on to--even when our loss is great.
As you can see by the samples on our home page (and more samples here), we've found all kinds of ways to use video to make people's lives better.
From memorials to major milestones in life, we can help you hold tight to what's most dear--by creating a "this is your life"-style video, combining interviews (that we conduct) with your own personal pictures and video, to create a beautiful keepsake.
Unlike the typical tribute slideshow, our videos are more a centerpiece of your gathering than a background slideshow. We bring tears and laughter to the story of a life, a career, a marriage, or any milestone through interviews, home movies, and your own photos.
We can also help you have "the last word" at your own memorial service. Or capture the life stories of your senior family members, before memories begin to fade. We call them Modern Memoirs. Because they're your story--told in your voice.
