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

Let's go into more details below:

Step 1 - Create the birthday event page.

You can start by choosing the occasion “Birthday.” Then, enter the recipient's name (s) and select a deadline for submitting a birthday 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 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 create the event page to upload your media content, then jump to Step 3.

Step 2 - Invite people to send their birthday video messages.

Now, how do you invite people to send their happy birthday video messages? 

It's easy! Just share the birthday event page link you just created. 🤩

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

The people you invite can easily submit their video birthday messages 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 people you invited want to be part of this surprise video, but most people will 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 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.

You can also easily trim the birthday video message to tighten up the transition between each clip.

Step 4 - Publish the group video messages!

When you’re ready to finalize the birthday video montage, hit the "publish" button, and that’s it! You invite people to submit video messages for the birthday — and we make the video. 🥳
