COMMEMORATIVE PRESENTATIONS TO HONOR THOSE WE LOVE
The slideshow videos below were created to honor my mother and father and presented at my mom's 95th birthday party, and my dad's memorial gathering. This type of slideshow projected so everyone can view it at the same moment is an incredibly personal and moving way to honor those you love.
Make one while your loved ones are still alive! The impact of presenting these at a party to celebrate a birthday or anniversary is unforgettable!
How do we make one of these? We start by having you choose the images (and video if you have it) you'd like to include. I will scan the photos and retouch them. You won't believe how good your old pictures can look! Then I create an animated slideshow with music--guaranteed to bring tears to your loved ones.
And once you have retouched images, it's a great time to make framed prints for your walls, and photo albums. I love to design and hang wall art--I'll help you every step of the way.

Irv Docktor: Prolific Painter
My father, Irv Docktor, was a lifelong illustrator and artist. He was driven to paint and draw, and he worked right up to the last days of his life. He also taught art, inspiring students at Newark School of Art and New York City's High School of Art & Design. I created this piece for his memorial gathering in 2008, and shows his work and photos of him through his life. We don't have any photos of him as a child, which saddens me. The point being, every phase of life should be documented and preserved in a way that future generations can see who you were, what and who you loved.
