Remember that a birthday is a special occasion to remember later. The fact that you want to capture these important moments on video does not mean that you cannot let your imagination run wild. Whether you want to create a symbolic video memento for yourself or for someone special (a well-designed birthday video can be an absolutely brilliant gift!), You should take into account some ideas:
• Interview video: Talk to your friends and family about who have been the most important people in your life over the years. Interview as many people as you can and try to gather as many stories as possible. These stories can be emotional, funny, anecdotal and more. You can interview people at their own birthday parties and then offer their gifts. If you are particularly ambitious, choose to offer the interview video at the end of the birthday party itself. Alternatively, you can edit the video using a birthday video maker the day before the party and deliver it on the special day. Please note that this type of video works well with and without filming the birthday party.
• Slideshow video: Using the appropriate video editing software (and you have lots of options at your disposal), you can create a slideshow that displays the most important events and achievements in the birthday person’s life. Think carefully about the best photos you can present and try to be as detailed as possible. Start by displaying your birthday followed by all the most important events to date. You can also add music if you wish.
• Life story video: This idea is suitable for the most ambitious, and if done well it can be extremely fun. What you should do is create a short video about the birthday boy’s life. The advantage of this type of video is that you include friends and family creatively in the video. Try to give a funny tone to some events shown and do not exceed 15 minutes of video.
• The most complete birthday video: This is yet another ambitious option, but one that can be realized. It is probably also the most expensive idea of all mentioned above, but don’t worry, it is reasonably affordable. Offer your friends and family digital video cameras and standard cameras before the party. Teach them how to capture photos and videos of guests, games made at the party, the birthday boy opening gifts and much more. You can also interview guests. As soon as the party is over, gather all the material and create a photo and video presentation of that very special day to present. If you need to go to different places during the party, even better! This ensures greater diversity.
