A video memorial is a good way to highlight the deceased individual's life, personality, achievements, and contribution to society. It can be a beautiful tribute that showcases your love and feeling of loss. At Wagg Funeral Home, we believe that it is the best way to personalize a funeral and help all grieving family members connect. Here are some tips on how to build the perfect video memorial for your loved one:

1. Decide What You Want to Include

The first step is to decide what you want to include. Go through home videos and pictures to find items that showcase the core aspects of the deceased. For example, if they were a movie buff, you can show clips of them outside a theatre, with ticket stubs, or at home and yelling at the screen. If they were a college professor, share videos of one of their lectures, interactions with students, etc.

2. Create a Script

You don't need to add a voiceover in these video memorials but sometimes people include eulogies or narrations in these clips. Create a script to ensure the message is coherent, meaningful, and flows well with the video content. You can ask friends and family to contribute their own voices as well. For example, if a father dies, all of his children can add their voice to the memorial.

3. Music

If you’re not going to include voice, choose music to fill the void. It is best to choose a meaningful song or instrumental piece to set the right tone. Avoid music with offensive or too cheerful lyrics. Stick with something that will add a poignant touch to your memorial film.
