A Mothers’ Day special video which celebrates your love for your mother is a great gift idea and can be done in zero budget bracket. It is a personal gift straight from the heart and mothers always get very emotional on receiving such gifts.
Now when we say it is a zero budget gift, we actually mean it. Since all you need is a point-and-shoot camera or a phone camera and a video editing software. Yes, that is ALL that you need to make a video for your mother.
1. Decide what components you want to have in your video. That will also help you decide the duration of this special video. If you have old video clips of your mother, then use those. Keep recording videos of your mom doing everyday stuff like making breakfast, taking a walk outside, petting your dog, watching TV, talking to other family members et al.
2. Use a video editing software, like the Windows Movie Maker, to bring all these components together. Using the split option in it to extract the parts of a video which you like. You can then use them to make a smooth transition with other video parts.
3. You can either add music to the entire video, or still better, make a video with your mother’s favourite song as the central theme.
4. Effects like black and white can be used to denote parts of videos as flashbacks.
5. Add messages, from you and your siblings, in the video. You can drag your father into it as well, and ask him to say something nice about the day. But if your granny is alive and kicking, then get her to record a message for your mom. Nothing will be more memorable than such a compilation for your mother on her special day.
