Funerals

 

A funeral is intended to facilitate healing for the family and friends of the deceased; however, oftentimes the grief is so great that we don’t actually hear the words said by the minister. A funeral video can help with healing by allowing the family to hear the words and music again, when the feeling is not quite so raw.

A funeral video can also help bring closure for family members who are unable to attend the funeral.

We can record a funeral in a funeral home or in a church. As always, we work with the minister or funeral director to ensure that we stay out of peoples’ way and show proper reverence.

We record the funeral using two video cameras and, usually, a separate audio pickup so that it will be possible to understand every word said. If we record the graveside service as well, we use a single camera with an on-camera microphone. We strive to be as reverent and unimposing as possible, although at the gravesite it is more difficult simply because of the limited amount of space available.

Pricing:

We strive to keep the cost of funeral videos low in order to accommodate the grieving family.

  • Funeral Service: $300
  • Funeral Service plus Graveside service: $400
  • Travel over 50 miles round trip, per mile: $0.50
