Here's how we can help you in abit more detail.....
We work closely with you to create the perfect memory movie for your particular occasion whether it be a birthday milestone, school leavers party, a special wedding anniversary or remembrance tribute for a loved one's funeral service. You select the photos and video clips you want to include in the movie and we source and supply your choice of music. We provide guidance on the best method of transferring all visuals to us depending on where you have them stored and what format they are in. We are experts at creating stories from people's memories, and once we receive your visuals and music choice, we make sure everything is crafted into a flawlessly timed and high-quality movie. This can be supplied on USB, DVD or video book. You are able to have title pages in the movie as well as captions on any particular photos should you wish. If the DVD format is chosen, the movie comes in a protective case with personalised sleeve. If the USB option is chosen, this comes in a small gift box with matching gift bag. Approximately 50 photos fit the average length of song perfectly, however, additional songs can be added if there are lots of photos. There are no limits on the number of songs or photos that can be used.
Our new innovative video books are the perfect gift! We will create your memory movie as described above, and then add any personal video messages you would like to include, and upload all this onto a Memory Lane video book. These books are A5 in size and have a large 7 inch LCD colour screen and multiple control buttons, and come supplied with a charging cable. They are only 1cm thick so perfect for posting. A truly wonderful way of showing somebody how special they are!
As an alternative to musical memory movies, we can also produce photo and video clip slideshows, keeping the original audio. This is more suited if you have many hundreds, even thousands, of photos and short video clips you wish to organise and collate as a way of cataloging your photographic memories in date or subject order. This service is very popular with Mums wanting to back up their iphone photos and video clips of their children growing up over the years, and to give as presents to grandparents.
Home camcorder videotape memories are irreplaceable but are sadly deteriorating drastically. The average life of a VHS tape is about 25-30 years under proper storage conditions. And smaller tapes have an even shorter life, with many degrading after just 10-12 years. After that, your memories are gone forever. If you want to preserve these special movie moments for the future, you need to convert them to DVD or USB. In these new formats but more so the USB option, they can easily be viewed, shared, edited, copied and backed up. We can transfer VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, Video8, Hi8, Digital-8, MiniDV and MiniDVDs from camcorders and video recorders, aswell as Audio Cassettes & Music CDs, to high-quality DVDs / USBs that will last generations. You pay only for actual, recorded footage on your videotapes, and not for blank or unused parts. Our pricing includes a custom title page on your disc and a protective DVD box with printed sleeve. You can also opt to have your transfer on USB stick instead/also in MP4 format, which is alot more usable and allows you to share and edit the files. Additional copies are also available at the time of ordering, which make wonderful presents.
We transfer old silent cine reels to DVD or USB of reel sizes up to and including 400ft long (7 inch diameter). Additional copies are available at the time of ordering, which really do make wonderful keepsakes.
Old paper photos are nostalgically wonderful to look through but fade, rip and deteriorate, plus are impossible to edit or share on social media. Do you have a box of old slides or negatives that you can't enjoy because you no longer have the old equipment? We can scan your loose photos, slides and negatives to digital JPG files - each one is individually scanned by hand on a professional high quality flatbed scanner (photos are not feed through an auto-feed machine like some companies) - you receive a high resolution quality image every time without any risk of damage. Supplied on either CD or USB.
If you have some precious old photos that have been damaged along the years, we can restore them to their former glory in JPEG format on a CD/USB for you to get printed at any printers of your choice. Whether it be dirt, stains, creases, pen marks, watermarks, mould, even missing bits and edges, nothing is impossible. Please get in contact to find out more. Lots of examples are shown on our facebook page at www.facebook.com/memorylanemovies1 - do please visit, give it a like and enjoy a browse!
Do you have so many photos you'd like to display but not enough wall space? We can scan all your photos of any size and reduce them down (or up!) into poster montages of any size or dimension. Images can include photos, souvenirs, menus, drawings, letters, tickets, newspaper clippings etc. Such a wonderful way of enjoying all your photos and memorabilia. Makes a great gift too! 2 styles available - overlapping or boxed. Supplied on a USB for you to get printed at any printers of your choice, pop in a frame and voila!
If you would like help with editing and producing marketing videos, Memory Lane Movies can work seamlessly with your company to provide the level of support that you need. We can edit all your video clips that you have taken of your product/service, and flawlessly join together with your branding, logos, music etc to a highly professional standard.
Here's a sample movie made for a Son becoming a teenager - this format has used video clips entirely.
Here's a sample school leavers video which can be played at Leavers Parties and/or supplied on DVD as Leavers Gifts and Keepsakes. A fantastic way for the kids to remember all their primary school buddies as they move onto their new secondary schools.
Here's a sample life tribute video which can be used at Funeral Services, Celebrations of Life and Wakes to help make it as personal and memorable as can be.
This movie was made for a family to remember their beloved parents and some of their wonderful trips around the world - this format has used old paper photos entirely (all of which were scanned with excellent results).

It is important to note that DVDs only hold a certain amount of data/video. Therefore, it may be necessary to split some long tapes onto more than 1 disc if you choose the DVD option. If this is necessary, we will ensure the split is at a suitable point in the tape and all discs are labelled.
When we send you a quote for your work, this will be the final cost, and rest assured, will not include any hidden charges. Our final quote is fully inclusive of the work requested, any DVDs/CDs supplied and their protective cases with personalised sleeves.
As you know, your tapes have a limited life expectancy and the older they get, the greater the deterioration and fragility. If you give us an unplayable tape, we can not be held responsible for this. In addition, if any tape snaps whilst we are working with it, we can not be held responsible in any way. Any tapes received which appear to have mould on can not be worked with sadly.
