Suggestions on preparing material for videos:

Put photos (slides) in some type of order to tell a story Organize the pictures you want to use in the order you want them to appear.  You may want to use some sort of order to tell a story (Chronological order is the most common).  Then, number them on the back either with a pencil, quick drying pen or a post-it type note you can write the number on. Don't use a regular ink pen because the ink can transfer to the other photos. Try to choose pictures that are horizontal (wider than they are tall) because they more closely fit your television screen.  It's good idea to include several "action"  photos, that show the subject doing something, to make the video more interesting.

Personal items may be included (i.e.: baby booties, favorite toys, invitations, etc.) or you can also use announcements, newspaper clippings, old home movie clips, video clips, biographical information, and other memorabilia.

Choose what music you want played with your video. Then, on a sheet of paper, list which song (or portion of a song) you want played with what group of pictures. Figure about 13 pictures per minute of music.  One average song will cover about 40 to 48 pictures. Choose music to complement the photos.  You may consider using favorite songs of the person (or people) for whom the video is intended.

You may want to consider dividing the video into segments or "chapters", (i.e.: childhood, courtship, marriage, raising their own family, their children's families, etc.)   Each segment can have its own song, or portion of a song, if there are enough photos.

Next, you'll need to come up with a simple beginning and ending title for your video. Short, simple, headline style titles are best for video.
Think of what titles you want to use as an introduction to the video and each segment (if desired), as well as, a special message to end the video with (i.e.: Congratulations, Happy Anniversary, We Love You, Best Wishes, etc.).

Steps for preparing materials for video:

Put photos in the order you want them to appear on the video (and number them).
Choose music to complement the photos.
Write down the title you want to use as an introduction to the video and the closing message to end the video, (i.e.: Congratulations, Happy Anniversary, We Love You, etc.).
Is there anything else you want to include in the video (old home movies, videos, etc.)?
