How It All Started
I have been a media producer for over 25 years, specializing in corporate video and feature films.
Living near Lakewood Cemetery, my family and I often take walks throughout the grounds. At one point during the first major COVID 19 lockdown, I noticed a burial taking place that had very few family members in attendance. It struck me not only how unfortunate this was, but also how this was the new normal for the foreseeable future.
When we returned home from our walk, I told my wife that I wanted to do something for these families in need.
I approached Lakewood with my concept and a few months later I was creating memorable video recordings that families could share with loved ones all around the world.
What I Offer
My video creation services start at $575.00 which include:
- Two video camera setup with audio capture
- Finished video with music and title slides.
- A downloadable video for family to keep
A private online video link will be supplied to the family for sharing and will be hosted for ONE MONTH, then removed.
For additional fees I also offer:
- Family photos by the casket
- Gravesite recordings
Lakewood Cemetery – For nearly 150 years, people have come together to honor, remember and reflect at Lakewood. We care deeply about the families and communities we serve, and we’re here to be of service.
Cory was quick to jump in and offer new ideas and services for Lakewood at the start of the pandemic. His recordings of outdoor burials services were such a huge relief for families who weren’t able to travel for services, and without Cory offering we may not have been able to offer this to families so quickly. We really appreciated his adaptability when working with our families, and how he took the time to ensure the final product was something we were proud to share. He was always quick to respond and had great turnaround on edits and changes. – Amanda
Henry W. Anderson Mortuary – Family owned and operated for over 3 generations now, since 1931. Serving the Twin Cities and Metro Areas, we take great pride in serving families here for over 84 years.
I was very pleased with the video you did of my husband’s funeral. You were available at the last minute, worked with my daughter in making the edits I wanted, and advised her with your expertise on navigating the music copyright issues. It resulted in a video that will remain very important to me, my family, and friends.
Thank you Cory. – Karen
