Veterans Video Biographies
Photo correction and enhancement
We have the ability to scan old photos and do color correction and enhancing that you may want to add to the video. We add special effects and upon request add chroma key (Green Screen). We also have the capability to do VHS conversions. We recommend photos be limited to major life experiences and family members. (high school graduation, place of birth, parents, marriage, service photos, etc. particularly of promotions, and various campaigns). Please try to limit the number of photos to around 30 to keep the production manageable.

You may choose a maximum of 3 song titles that you feel are appropriate for the era or just your favorite song. You can also leave it to us to find the right music for you. Song selections will only be included if copyright permissions are granted. If there is a copyright fee it will be added to the total cost of the production. However, in many cases (not all) the copyright permissions are gratis from the publishers based upon the fact you have provided your service in defense of your country.
