FNADOC Creations


    FNADOC Creations is dedicated to the custom designing of slideshows for your special event.  Whether a wedding, anniversary, or birthday,  this digital dvd slideshow will be a invaluable keepsake of the event for viewing over and over.  All of our slideshows are carefully handcrafted as if it was made for one of our own family.  Below is a chart for comparing choosing FNADOC Creations, hiring someone else, or doing it yourself.  Depending upon your needs and wants, one of the three will be the best choice.

    Many of the animations have been altered to fit better on the web.  They have been shortened, speeded up, and/or shrunken.  This improves the download times but produces a somewhat graphically inferior product.  The normal dvd quality product is available for viewing.  The current webserver has limited download speeds and I apologize for any lengthy delays.  A divx player is required for viewing many of the larger animations.  A free player may be obtained here.

Reasonable Pricing

A fairly complete price list can be found here.   Most of the animations and slides can be personalized with your photographs for the standard quoted price.  If something completely new and unique is desired,  a price will be determined based on "time and materials".

Reasonable Pricing

The best price is free and that is your out of pocket costs if you do it yourself.  If you are like most people, you probably have more time than money, so you don't have to figure in the value of your own time.  However, be aware, this is a time consuming, though rewarding, endeavor.
