If you’re reading this, it means you’re already on the right track to making a truly memorable birthday video montage. This post will explain how to use our birthday video maker to easily rally birthday wishes from a large dispersed group of people and compile them into one unforgettable birthday collage to give as a gift.
STEP 1: 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 video 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.
STEP 2: Invite a group of people to send their birthday video messages
Now, how do you invite people?
Simply share the event page you just created.
The people you invite will be able to easily submit their video 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 to send friendly reminders to the invitees before the submission deadline. The group of people you invited do want to be part of this surprise video, but most people will simply need a reminder or nudge to do so.
STEP 3: Drag & drop all the video clips and photos in order
All the submitted video messages and photos will be collected and found on your birthday event page, where you, and only YOU, will be able to preview and arrange them in the right order.
STEP 4: 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.
