How much editing goes into wedding videos?
Depending on the length of a wedding video, and the amount of storytelling that needs to be conveyed, the editing process differs.
In order to create a striking, well-narrated video there must be a balance between the sound (music), the narration and the visuals, in order to capture and hold the audience’s attention. A video plays a vital role in capturing a wedding day’s emotions, and if the song choice in the video is off, then the emotion of the day is lost. So one needs to make sure that your song selection is accurate to the brand and the couple in the video. This requires substantial research and planning.
What accessories do you make use of? Constant light, sound etc.
Contrary to most of the industry, we don’t make use of any additional lighting and try to use the natural look and feel of the setting and enhance it to its most elegant form. Sound is a vital element of our films, therefore we use receivers that feed clear sound directly into our cameras and automatically sync to our clips. This also saves time in the edit as the syncing is already done to perfection. Gimbals play a big role in the quality of our work to ensure the clips are stable, however, too much use of the gimbal can rob your films from feeling real and authentic. Therefore our standard practice is around 60% gimbal and 40% handheld. We use a drone from time to time but the emotion on the ground always takes first priority.
