Sisters Kitty and Daisy started filming weddings and parties in 2010.
Most people know us for our lip-sync videos: we choose a song with the host, circulate among guests at a wedding or party, ask them to sing a line from the song, then edit the clips together. Nothing is rehearsed, so the videos have a home-made feel to them. We have done over 1,000 of them, at all kinds of events, all over the world. If you want to know more, look here.
When coronavirus hit, our clients had to cancel their 2020 events so our normal business was hit for six. We asked Matt, our IT genius, if he could develop a way for clients to create their own lip-sync videos and 3 weeks later, it was ready. Now, even if people are isolated hundreds of miles apart, they can use our site to co-ordinate Home Movies, then ask us to edit them into a finished film.
'Spoken Word' movies
Some people who saw our Home Movies wondered if they could do the same thing but with their voices on the video instead of the music. They wanted members of their family scattered around the country to do selfie clips wishing a grandparent happy birthday, and piece them together into one video 'card'. The 'Spoken Word' version of Home Movies is now up and running and has lots of neat features. It's designed as a DIY-editing product, but if you prefer us to edit the footage you gather in, we can do that too.
In October 2020, we developed online Advent Calendars. The difference with these calendars is that you can put photos, videos, quizzes, music and all sorts of other things behind the windows, and send them to friends and family.
Photolab is a service we set up in in late 2020. We work with a local studio to digitise photos, slides, cinefilm, VHS tapes and all the other old formats on which memories are stored. If your cupboards, shelves and attic are full of this irreplaceable family history, act now before it's too late!
Daisy also runs Pistol Pinup, the Instagram account which celebrates entrepreneurial women.
We love to get feedback and hear new ideas, so please do get in contact.
