What can you do with your parents’ old photograph albums, cine films and video tapes?

We regularly receive emails regarding this recurring problem and they are usually from people seeking advice about how to convert their parents’ memorabilia to DVD.

We have the facilities to process them promptly, improve the overall quality of the images and re-edit if requested.

If it is not too late, we can help your parents interpret their old photographs, cine films and video tapes; especially if they are interested in talking to camera about their life story.

We will send out a pre-interview questionnaire and guidance notes and make a personal phone call beforehand to help with the preparations.

We will make the filming fun, relaxed and enjoyable – and build in plenty of breaks. We will use a professional 3 point lighting set up to produce glossy and flattering images. We want your parents to come across on camera as you know them – natural and confident.

We can also film on locations of your parents’ choice. In recent video biographies, that has meant visiting old family homes where our clients have waxed lyrical about their fond childhood memories – and then re-visiting some of their schools and places of work, as well as the churches where they were married.

The magic of the video biography is the editing stage where we bring everything together and tell your parents’ life story. this will involve superimposing the digitised photographs, cine films and video tapes onto their unique video time line; all with selected music, captions and titles.

The video biography is a great legacy and an ideal present for that special occasion.

Nothing compares to a beautifully edited video of that special day. Great moments soon pass, but video captures them forever. It is not something that can be successfully done on the cheap. You get what you pay for.

At Piran Films we use two professional Sony 35mm video cameras to get the angles and the shallow depth of field, not DSLR still cameras.  This allows us to cover the whole of your wedding ceremony as well as all the other key moments of the day. We produce glossy images.

We are meticulous editors and we possess the creative flair and expertise to get the job done. You will not be waiting months for your completed DVD.
