The Live Album™ Concept
What is it?
It's a personalized video that makes you or your loved ones the stars of a tasteful music video-style presentation, complete with clips from favorite movies, a custom soundtrack, moving titles, and animated graphics.
Still photos are brought to life with film post-production tools to tell the story behind the event you're celebrating. The production cost includes DVD delivery and webhosting so friends and family can view it from anywhere in the world.
Packaged as a gift on a novelty CD, it makes an elegant invitation to a wedding or reunion. It can be used in many ways - small invitation, greeting card, birth announcement, party favor, or family Christmas card.
Don't settle for a slideshow or "photo montage." Get a Live Album™!
Share the story
There are times in life when you call all your friends and family together to mark a special occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneros, graduations. You see long-lost cousins, grade school pals, friends who've moved to far-flung places - perhaps for the last time. These are events you never want to forget. These are events where it's impossible to find time for you to share a story or a laugh with everyone.
In times like these, a Live Album™ can be a valuable way to both document the event and share those invaluable life stories. For example, for a wedding, it makes sense to share photos and video of the bride and groom - from baby pictures to courtship snapshots to that candlelight dinner on the riverfront. At the same time, the Live Album can help to document the wedding for eternity.
A photo album stores precious memories of an event. It's one-of-a-kind. But it's hard to share with distant friends, and it can't be easily reproduced. But the Live Album transforms your event. It catalyzes your album and puts it in digital form, complete with animation and music. Photographs are treated with a Ken Burns-style documentary approach and selected text and graphic elements are carefully animated. Live Albums can also include custom video, home movies, and audio to represent the people and personality of your event. Each Live Album™ is a unique reflection of the people it depicts. Stylish, silly, thoughtful, or regal - it's your choice.

But don't take our word for it...
"The whole room was moved and entertained by the presentation. It perfectly captures our individual personalities and the nuances of our relationship. Sparkleworks beautifully chronicled our lives in pictures, integrating music and even animating elements of our wedding invitation! This tape is a perfect gift, and we will highly recommend Sparkleworks to our friends and family. Thanks again...! People are still telling me how much they enjoyed watching it."

"We cannot even express how much it meant for us to have the cool 'live album' for our wedding.
You had so many variables to work with, but ended up with a fabulous addition to our memories. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
