HVS Top 5 Movies with Flowers in the Title

HVS Top 5 Movies with Flowers in the Title

Last month we brought you April Shower movies. That rain-soaked cinema has given rise to May Flower movies. Here are five of our favorites. 

Driving Miss Daisy - A story of friendship and bonds that transcend race, religion, ethnicity and many years.

Steel Magnolias - There’s nothing tougher yet more tender than a group of women friends in the south who are all for one and one for all.

Lilies of the Field - An African-American handman happens upon a group of Roman Catholic nuns who have emigrated from Germany. Homer, kind and hardworking, becomes a Godsend to them, building a chapel and changing their lives.

Days of Wine and Roses - Don’t let the title mislead you. Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick shine in a drama portraying a couple’s rise to the heights, aided by booze, and fall to the depths, aided by booze. It received many Oscar nominations, including Best Actor and Best Actress.

What’s up Tiger Lily? – This movie was made from a real Japanese film that is overdubbed with English. There’s only one catch: it has nothing to do with the plot of the original film. The film changes from a spy thriller into a comedy about the search for the world's best egg salad recipe.

It’s Mid – May! Memorial Day is a week away! And we’re here in the precious memory business every day! Just think of the occasions this time of year where video is the perfect way to honor someone: Memorial Day, graduations, anniversaries, Father’s Day, birthdays or retirements are all occasions where a video would be the centerpiece of the occasion.

Call us to see how you can use your content to recognize a loved one - from a custom biography called a LifeTIME Video to a Photo Video Keepsake montage to a simple transfer of a precious video tape. Did you know we can also do Video Prints where you can capture an image from one moment in a video? What about simply editing together choice video clips of your subject? Do you want your video to be funny? Solemn? Inspiring? All of the above? You can!

Think of the people you love, living or departed, whose lives are recorded on film, videos, slides, and photos. What do you have? Here is a list of some content you can use for lasting tribute to anyone you want to honor. And the best part is you can use a few or all of them, depending on what you have, what you want, and how much time you have.

Photos - Pictures are usually the dominant media of any tribute. Whether a simple PhotoVideo Keepsake montage or a more complex presentation there's something about a photo that captures moments and emotions like nothing else. We have the best equipment and expertise to ensure your photos, whether prints or digital, will look the best they can.

Video - Old videos will bring life and motion to your project. Do you have video that captures your subject living life? Laughing? Loving on their kids or grandkids?

Home Movies – There’s something fascinating and timeless about old home movies. If you’re lucky enough to have old movies of your subject they can turn your project into a gem!

Interviews - On-camera interviews are a great way to include friends, family members, or anyone who tells a good story. We can shoot the interviews for you or you can do them yourself and bring them to us.

Audio - Did you know we can transfer audio from cassettes, reel-to-reel, and even old wire recordings? If part of your subject's life is available only on audio we can transfer it and find a way to mix it in.

Music - Music is the magic in video. As emotional shorthand, it sets the mood, the time, and the place.

Titles - Whether it's dates, people, or places - whether ornate or simple - titles tell a lot in a video tribute.

Voiceover - Using first person voiceover narrative in a video production is a very personal way to get a message across.

Pictures, videos, home movies, audio recordings - all these wonderful resources are waiting and just need you to add your imagination. With our professional production available at a reasonable price why not take advantage of today's technology to create a one-of-a-kind gift dedicated to the one you love? We have the equipment, experience, and creativity to make it the very best.
