What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.
Helen Keller

Often when a loved one passes away, we are so busy organising the funeral that we don’t slow down and appreciate the last goodbyes. The service will go so fast that remembering the fond memories that friends and family share is almost impossible. After all, we have our own grief that fills our hearts. But funerals and memorials are not only for saying goodbye but also for celebrating their life. We can help you remember those moments and make those who can’t attend the service be present online.

First, we need to know what funeral filming, memorial filming, funeral live streaming and memorial live streaming are.

What is funeral filming?

Funeral filming can help you remember and travel back in time to watch the funeral service. Experience the heartfelt speeches of the attendants and listen to their stories. You can share the video with the rest of the family and friends of the loved one or play it at memorials and significant anniversaries.

The family members and friends who are unable to attend in person can still be a part of the funeral service at a little later time. That is usually when the video editing is done.

These are the steps of filming a funeral.

On the funeral service day, we will film with multiple cameras and microphones to capture high-resolution recordings. After two to four weeks, you will receive the long version video edit that starts with a short montage of the guests arriving and continues with the complete service as it happened. We will edit parts when nothing is happening.
You will also receive a short highlight video edit that will show the essence of the proceedings.

We record these in a documentary-style being as discreet as possible.

The benefits of the memorial and funeral filming are

  • Full length high-resolution edited film
  • Short documentary-style highlight story
  • Intro and outro for the full-length film
  • Polished cuts
  • Overlay music
  • Delivered as a digital download
  • Privately published online
What is live funeral streaming?

Funeral live streaming enables family and friends from anywhere in the world to attend the funeral or memorial in real-time from their own homes. All they need is internet access and ether smartphone, smart TV or a computer. With the pandemic still around, it is sometimes impossible for family and friends to attend. The next best thing for those who can’t be there physically is to be there through the magic of the internet.

Here’s how funeral live stream or memorial work.

Before the funeral or memorial service, we will provide you with an internet link to where the streaming video will play. You need to share this link with family and friends to watch the service online. On the funeral day, we will place multiple cameras and microphones to capture high-resolution video and audio and upload them in real-time on YouTube, Facebook or a website. Our stream operator will switch the multiple cameras from the streaming station to show the best angle of the proceedings. The funeral video streamed online can be watched over and over again. Still, you will also receive the recorded version of the video stream to keep in your video collection in a week.

Capturing these, we always stay behind and as quiet as possible.
