What do you mean when you say "alot of videos that have dead video in them"? You don't mean video cassettes do you? or do you mean malfunctioning video files. If it's video cassettes you'll need to get a video capture card, and I'm afraid I can't really help you with any of that stuff, although a quick google for "record VHS tapes to DVD" or similar should help you.
If you already have video files, well I can help! I make vids which is basically getting clips from tv shows or movies, and editing them to a particualr song to make a music video that tells a story. You will need 2 things. 1- a clipper, such as VirtualDubMod. This is to chop your movies up into small, manageable bites so your editing program can handle them. Secondly, an editing program. These come in several levels of fanciness. You will already have Windows Movie Maker on your computer if you have windows, and iMovie if you have a Mac. These come free with the machine, and will mostly likely be sufficient for your needs. Then there are some midlevel ones, such as Ulead, Sony Vegas, which will be at a middle price range, then stuff like Adobe Premiere which is pretty expensive, then right at the top Final Cut Pro, which you can only run on a Mac. You should use WMM for a one-time use, however please be aware that is it a linear editor. This means that you have to put your clips on the timeline in exactly the order you want them to play in, and you have to start at the beginning. You will only be able to put out your finished movie in .wmv format, and you may need to use a file converter as it will only take certain types of files.
In short: if they are already on your computer, chop them up with a clipper such as VirtualDubMod, then stick 'em together again with Windows Movie Maker.
