A Film Of Your Wedding Will Give You Enjoyment Years Into The Future
People have videos of their wedding made for several reasons. Once excellent reason is simply to cause those that weren’t lucky to be there a bit of jealousy. And if the wedding ceremony was held in the Bahamas or a foreign country, so much the better. And make sure that the videographer includes all of the fun location spots and recreational events taking place in the wedding vicinity.
Having a wedding video produced is a perfect gift to give to yourselves as a newly married couple. How much is it worth? In the future, it’ll be priceless.
Every wedding needs a photographer to capture the events. But video can capture and convey things that a photo just can’t. A video can capture moods. It can capture emotion. It can capture sound. It can make you feel like you are there. A photo, is a moment in time. It captures that moment, but doesn’t capture what went before or after that moment. Both are good to have, but a wedding video really lets you truly relive the moment again.
The state and capabilities of video equipment has not stood still over the past ten year. Today, professional videographers using state of the art video equipment and editing tools can churn out amazing videos that rival those produced by the major studios. In addition, the new digital formats allow editing equipment to place all kinds of special effects into the video which would have been unheard of a few years ago.
You’ll want to know what type of format the video will be filmed in. Will it be in digital high def or will it be film. Digital technology will let an editor include really incredible transitions and special effects and navigation techniques.
Sometimes your wedding photographer will be the same person as your videographer, and sometimes they’ll be different. If they are different, you want to get them both together so they can co-ordinate their schedules, shot setups, and so on. He’ll also need a schedule of what’s going on that day and exactly which parts of the day and ceremony he will be filming. You’ll especially need to let him know of any of the out of the ordinary special events that are happening that day that you want to capture on film.
Whenever you interview a videographer, one of the most important questions you want to ask him after viewing his portfolio, is if he does all of the work himself. If he doesn’t, you’ll want to know which parts he does and which parts he farms out. Some videographers and video companies contract out a fair percentage of their work. You’re paying for his services, you want to make sure that you get them.
Most video companies will have multiple cameras at the wedding event. This is so they can capture multiple events happening at once. For example, during the actual ceremony, one camera will of course be trained on the bride. But you want to capture the reactions of the guests as well. So one or more cameras will be aimed at the wedding guests.
