Professional Filming and Editing

Mini-Documentary

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what is a video worth? Take a few minutes to watch this example of our mini-documentary and you decide.

A mini-documentary is just like an in-home photo shoot only with a high-quality video camera. Instead of developing pictures, Wired Iris takes the footage and edits it into a final product and delivers it on a fully customized DVD. This type of project can differ greatly and you're only limited by your imagination.

The video above is a portion of a Father's Day DVD that included 12 minutes of video, a photo slideshow and other short video clips. The mini-documentary mixes video, audio, music and titles to convey your message, whatever it may be. You tell Wired Iris what you want, and we're sure you will love our final product.

Family Documentary

This is a great gift that will be cherished for years and years. Not sure what to do? You are only limited by your imagination. Here are some ideas:
  • Write and perform a play
  • Explain a school project
  • Story of your birth or your child's birth
If none of that makes sense, don't worry. The best documentaries are the ones that simply capture everyday life, like playing in the backyard, throwing a frisbee with the family dog or reading a book for the first time. If you have an idea that isn't listed here, that's great! Let us know and we'll add it.

When you call to schedule a time, we will decide which type of mini-documentary you prefer or discuss another idea. We'll choose a location, filming date and pick a date for delivery. After filming, we'll edit your video and deliver it on a DVD with a custom jacket. We also include three backup copies for your convenience. We don't keep backups here, so we recommend you put them in a safe location.

Video Guest Book

Are you planning a birthday party for a family member? How about a family reunion or wedding? The next time you have your family together for a big event, don't miss an opportunity to have them send well wishes to the guest of honor.

Wired Iris will set up in a quiet corner with a high-quality camera, tripod and lights, making sure to get every detail just right. Some people are uncomfortable on camera, but we're very friendly and will help put them at ease. This a is an especially thoughtful gift for a first birthday party where the guest of honor might need a little help

remembering the occasion. Having grandparents or great-grandparents record messages or tell stories is a great way to preserve those moments.

After the party, we'll create custom menus and put all of the videos on a DVD. We'll create a custom case and even print directly on the DVD. You'll receive your DVD as soon as it is finished along with three additional backup copies.

Sport Recruiting Video

Is your son or daughter trying to catch the eye of a recruiter or scout? Don't give up on traditional methods. Instead, make it as easy as possible to get others to see your son or daughter play. Wired Iris will come film whatever you need and put it on a professional DVD.

Set yourself apart from the other hand-written Sharpie discs with confusing menus shot with a home video camera. Leave the filming to us so you can focus on what is really important; making sure your child is playing his or her best.

Along with your DVDs, we will also host your video on our website and give you a custom URL (www.wirediris.com/your_childs_name) that you can email to recruiters. Putting your video on YouTube is never a good idea. Don't let a recruiter be distracted by other videos, inappropriate comments or a low play count. On Wired Iris, your page will be clean, clear and direct. We'll even give you advanced tracking to see how often your video is being viewed, the location and how long the visitor stayed on the page.

  • For an additional charge we can even help you create professional cards with your name, contact information and custom website with your video. It's easier and faster than writing it down on a slip of paper and it will increase the likelihood that someone will actually visit your site.
