7 STEPS TO FOLLOW :

For our films made by video editors

1. CHOOSE YOUR THEME

We propose 5 editing themes with their own style (effects, transitions, speed). If you come back from a ski trip, a paintball game or a mountain bike session, the theme SPORT will be the most adequate. Prefer the WEEK-END theme for getaways, EVG or EVJF, and the VOYAGE theme for holidays or longer authentic outings. Finally the FAMILY theme has a slower style, and the WEDDINGS are the subject of another distinct theme.

2. SELECT A DURATION

By default, each theme has a recommended duration. Of course, depending on the nature of your project and the quantity of files, you are free to modify the durations. We recommend :

  • 2 minutes for a sports session movie
  • 5 minutes for a weekend movie
  • 8 minutes for a family movie
  • 10 minutes for a travel movie
  • 15 minutes for a wedding movie

IF YOU ONLY HAVE PHOTOS, we recommend a duration of 2 to 5 minutes maximum. Please note that we can integrate a maximum of 80 photos in a 2 minute film, and 200 photos in a 5 minute film.

IF YOU HAVE MAJORITARILY PHOTOS, we recommend a duration of 2 to 8 minutes maximum.

BOTH PHOTOS AND VIDEOS / ONLY VIDEOS : all film durations can be chosen. Your choice will then depend more on the style you want to give it.

3. SEND YOUR PHOTOS AND/OR VIDEOS

FILE SORTING
Before sending your files, sorting photos and videos is not mandatory but recommended. If our editors are in the habit of sorting your photos and videos, of keeping the best of them to make a successful and well-balanced digest, we prefer the adage "two precautions are better than one". So do not hesitate to remove duplicates, blurred or badly framed shots...

SEND PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO MORE THAN ONE
To invite your friends and family to send their photos/videos to your project, we invite you to fill in their email address after clicking on the "Invite friends" button. They will receive an automatic email from our site inviting them to send their photos and/or videos. Only the Project Captain can invite participants. In case of internet connection problems or other problems, do not hesitate to call us!

4. CHOOSE YOUR MUSIC

Unless you call us for a specific request, it will not be possible for you to send your music for copyright reasons. Indeed, we buy the broadcasting rights for each film we make. By choosing our titles, and unlike your own music, you will be free to share them on all web platforms except TV. With music that we don't have the rights to, social networks such as Facebook or Youtube for example can block your video. To meet all expectations, we regularly renew the music titles in our library with the latest market news : there is something for every taste !

5. GIVE RECOMMENDATIONS

You can tell us 10 sequences or key photos that you want to appear in your film. Our editors will put them forward in the editing, by applying light digital zooms, by allowing a little more time to appear, or by slowing down the video. You can also notify additional titles, or we can indicate precisely which parts of the video you want to keep. Finally, a concluding title is proposed to you. This step is optional, as is the numbering of your files BEFORE you send them to us (if you want us to follow a very precise order).

6. PAY ONLINE

At a glance, you will be able to view the summary of your project and add free and paid options if you wish. Among these, the delivery of your film in a video album (paying), or the publication of your film on Youtube as an unlisted link (free). The latter makes it very easy to share your film on Whatsapp and other social networks, but also guarantees confidentiality since only those with the link will be able to find the video. Our online payments are secure and most credit cards are accepted.

7. RECEIVE YOUR FILM BY EMAIL

Once your order is validated, one of our editors will produce your film within 3 to 5 working days. Count 3 working days for films lasting less than 10 minutes, and 5 working days for films lasting longer. Your film is delivered by email with a download link. If you have chosen the guaranteed option to be able to modify your film after delivery, you will have 7 days to send us all the changes you need to make, without adding any additional files. In any case, our team remains available for any further information.
