The "simplicity" is in the editing style. The purpose of our “simple documentation” is to comprehensively cover your event. In serving this purpose the client can expect an exacting account of the day with natural audio and beautiful imagery.
This Catholic wedding ceremony was shot by a single cinematographer. The video begins with a short musical section showing the preparation for the event and is narrated with the bride’s letter reading. The rest of the film is an unabbreviated presentation of the ceremony.
The Highlights bring the day into a single artistic expression of the event. I carefully consider the spoken words collected throughout the event and reduce them to a simple story of the day. The images are picked for relevance to the story and aesthetics. Music is chosen as a film score to develop the appropriate mood.
This wedding highlight has a very beautiful storyline with many different sources of dialogue.
Some couples are interested in a more than just a well captured event film. For those romantic types we offer features that can be built into a film product focused on telling a story.
Portraits and Interview - a full day of filming and a is dedicated to the shooting the couple in action. This can be posed shots in beautiful locations or a reenacted first date at the bowling alley. This is relaxed way of developing a wedding film that tells a story of a couples personality and union.
Short Film Edit - along with the simple documentation a couple may like a refined wedding film. The edit will be as refined as the highlight film.
4K Ultra High-Definition
Reception Film - The portraits and interview can be cut into a presentation of the couple during the reception.
Disc Set - Along with the standard movie file delivery the wedding film may also be authored onto BluRay and DVD.
Gimbals allow for beautiful motion that compliments a event without taking up too much space on the scene. With this we can take the viewer to accompany the brides entrance, into a dance circle, or drift through a beautiful landscape portrait.
A camera drone offers a majestic way of showing the weddings location. This dramatic perspective adds tremendous value to a wedding film. Drone flights are occasionaly restricted by laws, weather, and occassional technical issues this is not always garaunteed.
Shooting with multiple cameras and audio recorders allows us to capture with confidence.
I am generally a quiet observer. I try to stay keenly aware of my fellow artisans and attending guests. My style is consistent, clean, intimate, and unobtrusive.
