Vacation Videos Edited in a Snap!
So, you took that big trip through Europe last summer and easily snapped 1,000 photos. You even shot some video; the kids on the gondola ride through the canals of Venice, exploring Rome with a gelato in hand at sunset, and breathtaking views over Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. During the trip, you probably posted a few vacation videos on Facebook and Whatsapped your mom with pictures of the kids. And you obviously shared some of your favorite photos on Instagram. But, if you’re anything like me, no sooner were you back home then all those fabulous photos and videos were forgotten about. You’re lucky if you even transferred them from your phone to your computer!
Wouldn’t it be great to actually do something with all those photos? To actually have all the pieces of your trip compiled into an amazing video that takes you right back to Rome where you can almost taste the gelato again?
We all have the best intentions when we take family vacation videos and photos, but turning them into a quality edited video can be a challenge. Sure, you might be a little tech savvy and can put together a slideshow, but actually editing video? It gets tricky and who has time for that?
Problem: Video editing skills and time.
What’s the solution?
Well, you are in luck!
We have found your video editing solution and you’re going to LOVE it.
LIFIE is the video editing company that will turn your vacation videos into mini-movies and treasured keepsakes for years to come. They do all the work for you!
You simply send them the photos and videos that you captured on your trip, complete a short questionnaire about the holiday, and put in any special requests. LIFIE takes the best bits and pieces and turn it into a quality vacation video replaying your trip for you to share with family and friends and enjoy time and time again.
“Our editors review every piece of uploaded content and hand-select only the best moments to tell the story. The customer can also provide direction during the checkout process to omit certain pieces if they want to make sure they aren’t included.”
There are a variety of LIFIE video samples that you can watch to get a better idea of what they offer. Class Trip to Grand Canyon – (crowdsourced from teachers and students), Biking in France and A Weekend in Paris. And because it’s always better to test something to fully understand how it works, I had my 40th Birthday Party in Tulum turned into a LIFIE vacation video and was thrilled with the results.
One of my favorite features about LIFIE is that your LIFIE gets its own classy event page for you to share with all of your family and friends where they can leave comments. There is also a very nice photo gallery showcasing the photos you submitted that is included on your event page. You can choose to have your LIFIE vacation video public or private. This is a great option for schools and organizations that might only want to share a video with their students’ families or group members.
“After a LIFIE is approved internally, we publish it to the customer’s LIFIE event page so the customer can enjoy it right away. Most customers are happy with no revisions, but we want people to love their LIFIE. We include a link for customers to provide feedback if they would like changes.”
Sounds expensive right? Wrong. LIFIE vacation videos start at the base price of $150 then an additional $5 for each minute after that. LIFIE has a really cool pricing page with a sliding scale, where you can even estimate the amount your video will cost based on how many photos used and how many minutes of video footage used.
“We think a combination of video and photos produces the best LIFIE, but photo-only LIFIEs are common. Unlike computer-generated photo slideshows, photo LIFIEs are hand-curated, professionally cropped and zoomed, and timed to the beat and mood of the music. And most importantly they tell a story.”
So, problem solved.
Don’t let those epic life moments and major milestones get lost on your phone or your computer. These are precious memories that you and your kids will want to look back on for years to come. Five years from now you are not going to go back through your Facebook feed to find the video you posted from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Get yourself a LIFIE!
