This is Sentiment’s 4th Christmas and as ever we are not sending Christmas cards (We can hear your eyes rolling :O). Yes it’s a bit of a cop out, but we are donating to ‘The Child Bereavement Charity’ instead, a wonderful charity that we are very passionate about. At the same time we’re saving trees and saving the postman from any more added stress over this white Christmas! 2010 has been a super year for Sentiment, we’ve worked with some great people and great Funeral Directors, Filmed some beautiful Funerals, made some very touching Tribute Films and created many many Photo Slideshows that have stirred laughter and tears at a funeral / memorial service, as well as other events and celebrations of life. We even had some super press coverage but nothing that could top our national TV appearance on BBC Breakfast TV where we talked about Photographing Funerals.
A nice ending to the year has been moving into our shiny office in Old Beaconsfield town.

HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2011?
We truly believe that Sentiment is not just a business, but a bit of positivity helping people celebrate life. We are hoping for the same positivity in 2011 by collaborating with more businesses and charities so we can really make a difference. If you have any projects, ideas or charity fund raising for 2011 and you would like some help or our involvment then do let us know.
We are also open to promoting your business on our Blog. If you have any special offers or you are opening the way to innovative new ideas then do let us know and we’ll do our best to announce it on the world wide web.
So here’s wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and fantastic New Year 2011.

The telegraph Headline: ‘Daughter’s tribute to dying mother is a YouTube sensation’
The Metro Headline: ‘Daughter’s YouTube tribute to dying mother becomes hit’
And it even reached the USA – ABC headline: ‘Memorial Video Helps U.K. Teen Raise Funds’
16 year old Sarah Phillips recorded a raw yet stunningly beautiful version of the Autumn, (originally sang by Paulo Nutini ) into her mobile phone hours before her mother died. Later her family friend helped put it to music. They had a professionally edited video tribute / video montage produced using the family home video footage and edited it to Sarahs version of ‘Autumn’ . The video tribute was shown at the funeral last week.
A few days ago the video was uploaded to YouTube and is now it’s achieving worldwide success. Sarah hopes to raise money for Cancer Research – the song is now available on iTunes to download (Autumn – A tribute to Debbie Phillips)
You can feel the pain, the love and the fear in Sarah’s voice when she sings; but when you see the video you can understand – you are drawn in.
Would the campaign be as successful without that Memorial Video Montage? No… Simply because you now get to see where her voice comes from and get a glimpse of the reasoning of her pain and an understanding of the hole that will be left in their family.
The song is a naturally a melancholy song; therefore put this to their home video footage it pulls all the heart strings of anyone who watches it.
It opens that window for a few seconds that you mainly like to keep shut because when you open it you know you have to face that life is very short and it’s too painful to imagine loosing someone you love.
This video will give you a chance to shed a tear you would not normally do on a Friday morning in March while sat at your PC at work. By lunch time you may have forgotten about the pang you felt when you watched it, but subconsciously I hope that maybe you’ll think about dropping your mum a call, or emailing your husband, maybe you’ll stop cleaning the house for a second, or turn off Facebook so you can to turn to your child and say ‘I love you so much’.
I wish Sarah all the luck in the world, she will no doubt succeed in reaching her goal, and find strength to walk down the path of her grief turning it into something very positive.
The Release of Autumn I am sure will be the start of a new and amazing journey for Sarah Phillips.
