How does it work?

After contacting Thistory.com, and based on your when you need your video completed, we will arrange a meeting to go over your photos and anything else you'd like to see included in the tribute. This is the time to tell your story, so that it can be accurately reflected in the finished video. We'll also discuss musical and design choices for the video. This meeting can also take place over the phone or through e-mail, whatever is most convenient for you.


How long does it take to get the video?

About a week, often less, although it may be longer if you're sending the material by mail. In the case that the tribute is needed quickly for a memorial or funeral service, a tribute can be rushed and finished in 2 or 3 days.


Can you help me pick some good background music?

That's our specialty. Thistory is well versed in music of all ages and genres. After speaking with you about who the tribute is for and what the occasion is, we can offer many suggestions for an appropriate and inspiring musical background.
