Gone are the days where people want their whole 2 day wedding covered like a 3 hour movie. Its the era of wedding films. 20-30 minutes, short, crisp, fun and brings a smile on everyone who watches it. Read on to know more about them.
Cinematic Wedding Videos, also known as Wedding Films, has been around since time immemorial, and are popular even today as they capture every moment of the wedding, and not just those fleeting moments captured by the photographer. Earlier, the entire wedding was shot by the videographer, but due to bulky equipment, bad quality and limited capacity and editing, photographs were always preferred, but not anymore. Today, couples are willing to spend a handsome amount of money to hire candid wedding videographers to record the most important day of their lives in a beautiful way, capturing those moments that can be relived years later.
Now that the wedding video industry is now being commercialized, there is all the more need to be top notch in the work and cater to customer demands, which range from live webcasts to cinematic videos and also the use of helicopter cameras to capture aerial views, even if the clips are used only for a few seconds. The various styles of wedding films are :-
Documentary – Usually as a documentary of the event, the video is edited to preserve continuity and provides a complete documentation of how the events unfold.
