to our most asked questions
I have heard it can take 6 to 8 months for a wedding film, is this true?
-We go to great lengths to make sure your wedding film is NOT just clips put to music, but rather a work of art that has a reason for every cut, effect or clip used. Our clients do not hire us to produce their wedding film because we can deliver it in several weeks, but rather because they know it will be what they expected or better. It will be a work of art worthy of the term wedding film.
What is raw footage?
-Raw footage is the term used to describe the footage of film / video that has NOT been edited or color corrected. It is the footage right out of the camera. Most raw footage will not only include the moments of the day but also include the moments when a camera is being focused, moved, or used to setup audio. In many cases the audio will be unusable or non existent do to the configuration of a particular camera. Since these things go on throughout the day, it is likely that couples will find the raw footage littered with un-watchable moments.
Will I get my raw footage?
-Much the way a painter uses paint, brushes and canvas to create a work of art out of a vision, we use raw footage, editing magic, color correcting and filters along with a heavy dose of audio sweetening and music to create your wedding day film. Raw footage by itself contains many moments that are simply not watchable. We go to great lengths to include footage from all of your moments within your wedding day film. For an additional cost we can provide a lightly edited version of raw footage that has had these unwatchable moments removed.
Does it matter how many cameras you use?
-Couples often compare companies by the amount of cameras that are included in the packages. We approach your wedding day film from the stand point that it is a work of art and we are the artists who will create it for you. Our clients have chosen us because of our end product rather than the amount of cameras that are included. Rest assured that we will use enough cameras to produce your wedding film in our award winning style.
How do you decide what music to use?
-Our couples have commissioned us to produce their wedding film and part of that wedding film will be a music score much like what you are familiar with in a Hollywood style movie experience. While we certainly solicit feedback as to genre, style and artists, we ultimately decide what music will be used based on the emotional drive, how the music moves the film along, and the overall end result with regard to how the film represents our style.
What is the difference between a wedding video and a wedding film?
-The term wedding video has been used to describe just about any video that includes footage from a wedding. Some wedding video is poorly produced with little value to the bride and groom while other wedding video is very nice and will provide a wonderful documentation of the day. The term wedding film refers to an end product that is created with the use of cinematic techniques that mimic the look and feel of a Hollywood style movie. Wedding films are truly a work of art and create an emotional experience for the viewer to relive the wedding day. Typically a wedding film is far more entertaining than a wedding video.
Do you deliver in HD?
-We shoot in High Definition and can deliver in High Definition using Apple TV and Blu-Ray technology and Quicktime movies on a thumb drive. It is important to know however that, although Blu-Ray is becoming more popular with the consumer market, there are still many incompatibility issues that need to be addressed before you can be assured that your Blu-ray wedding film will play in your Blu-ray player.
Can I get more than one copy of my wedding film?
-Yes you can! You will typically receive 3 copies as part of your wedding film and we frequently get asked to duplicate
