How to make a Retro Video Diary

Decide on the theme of your vintage video. It can be a new memory or an event from years ago. We recommend creating a video with pictures and videos of your wedding, anniversary, or you and your loved ones. 

Our video creators will emanate vintage vibes and bring those memories to the front of your mind with an old-world charm. Include soft and gentle music in your retro video diary for an elegant and timeless feel.

Selecting photos

Choose photos for your custom video slideshow. For an anniversary or other significant moment like that, use pictures from your wedding day or honeymoon where you and your spouse were both jovial and carefree.

If your vintage video is focused on you and your family, use pictures from the family reunion or annual picnic. The vintage video will give nostalgic vibes to your pictures & create a delicate video experience.

Selecting Videos

Include videos in your vintage video to escalate its old-school look. Use videos from your wedding day or the proposal and include them in the video to offer a personal feel to this timeless sentiment. Choose videos where you and your loved one are sharing a special moment that you want to cherish forever. The video will give these special videos a touch of yesteryear and beyond with soft filters and nostalgic effects.

Videos should be trimmed to cover only the really striking and interesting footage. We recommend capping a single video at no more than 10-15 seconds in order to achieve a smooth flowing video of photos and videos.

Choosing the music

Your retro video diary should include soft and gentle music to accompany the pictures and videos used. Maintain an old-fashioned theme with piano notes or subtle strings.

If you do not have any music in mind, leave it to our seasoned video creators to choose a fitting song for your retro video diary!

Add, but limit text

Less is more regarding text for videos. Add short text to your video and include captions to quickly describe the picture. Consider captioning photos and videos with a favorite quote that sums up the moment or event.

Use “Wedding day,” to tell the audience more about the photo from the reception or caption grandma’s birthday with the date. Limit the text used so that the focus remains on the pictures and videos.

Keep the video short and simple

Keep your video short and concise. Maintain the attention of your audience with a brief and precise slideshow of retro-looking pictures and videos.

Most people will sit and watch only 2-5 minutes of video. We recommend not using more than 60 photos and 3 video clips for your video, which translates to about a maximum of 5 minutes of video playtime.

If you have multiple photos and videos that might exceed 5 minutes, PixieDiary suggests creating a series of shorter videos resulting in something similar to chapters in a book.
