Ten years ago on January 2 my mother passed away after a long battle with cancer. The years have flown by but it still feels like yesterday when I showed this video at her funeral to celebrate her life.
I had a few days to scan the images and animate them in Adobe After Effects. The first time I heard Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World was on the television show Party Of Five in 1998. Since then it has been used in a number of films â€” Meet Joe Black, Finding Forrester and 50 First Dates.
I posted the video on Facebook and it was nice to see that so many friends and family have fond memories of her and miss her as well.

On January 2, 2001 my mother passed away and I started working on a video that would celebrate her life. I scanned in a bunch of photos, animated them in Adobe After Effects and exported the final project using the first version of iMovie.
I think this is the first video I ever worked on and it was shown at my mother’s funeral. It’s not my best work by a long shot but it’s a true labour of love. It’s hard to believe that 6 years have passed by already.
