    Software is easy (but not so easy to learn). You wouldn't even need full blown professional software for this. The big names are Final Cut (Mac only) Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, DaVinci resolve, Magix Vegas (PC Only). If you want fancy graphics you may want to look at compositing tools such as After Effects, Boris (or HitFilm)
    The biggest issue here would be getting hold of the source material, (video, stills and music) and at leats as importantly the rights to use them.
