What does First Take Baby do?
First Take Baby takes all of the video clips and photos that you have taken over the first year of your baby’s life and consolidates it into an accessible short montage to music. Images and video that would have probably remained on hard drives and memory cards come to life in a short film which can be shared or gifted by friends and loved ones. A perfect Christening present, Mothers and Fathers day gift, or to send to Granny and Grandpa for them to show off their grand child!

How did you come up with the idea for First Take Baby?
My boyfriend angus did a video of our son Indigo and I thought it would make a good business.

Who actually edits the photos and clips into my film?

Where did Angus learn to edit?
His background is in film production so naturally he was the man for the job!

I am a bit nervous about sending my video clips and pictures to a stranger - should I be?
I totally understand the sensitivity regarding images of your children, we are therefore DBS checked.  Remember you only send us images that you want to end up in the final video, once the video is complete we securely delete all of the files you sent us and you and only you decides who gets to see the video.

What about the music, is it licensed?
Absoulutely we have a Limited Manufacture Licence that covers it.

How long does it take to make my video?
This can depend on how much footage and how long you want the end product to be, but approximately 4 weeks

Will it appear on your website?
Only if you allow us to show it, otherwise it will be password protected.

How much does it cost?
Prices start from £250, again it depends on the amount of footage and intended length.

Can I get more than 1 memory stick with the final video on it?
You can have as many as you like!
