How to make a birthday message compilation in 4 easy steps?


Create the birthday event page

You can start here and choose the occasion “Birthday.” Then enter the name of the recipient(s) and select a deadline for submitting a birthday greetings message.

Now, as the creator, that’s YOU… you’ll want to rally people to record and submit their video messages, sending their warm wishes and good cheers to the lucky recipient(s). We suggest that you personalize this event page by uploading a profile photo of the recipient(s).

Side note: If you already have all your video clips and photos on hand, you can simply create the event page to upload your media content, then jump to Step 3.


Invite a group of people to send their birthday video messages

Now, how do you invite people to send their birthday wishes? 

Simply share the birthday event page you just created. 

You can do this by sharing the event page link through text messages, email, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, however you see fit.

The people you invite will be able to easily submit their video birthday messages by using their phone, tablet, or laptop. (And NO, they don’t need to download any special app, it can all be done through their internet browser)

Side note: Since it’s human nature to procrastinate, we suggest sending friendly reminders to the invitees before the submission deadline. The group of people you invited want to be part of this surprise video, but most people will simply need a reminder or nudge to do so.

Drag & drop all the video clips and photos in order

All the submitted video messages for birthdays and photos will be collected and found on your birthday event page, where you, and only YOU, can preview and arrange them in the right order.


Publish the group birthday video!

When you’re ready to finalize the birthday video montage, hit the "publish" button, and that’s it!

You invite people — we make the video.
