Before the USB or pen drive came out in the market, DVDs and Blu-Ray compact disc are very common in terms of saving and writing files such as videos, picture slideshows, games, installers and even mp3’s. It’s one way of saving files to be able to use them in the future whenever you need it, whether it’s copyrighted or not.
In terms of video editing, the creator of Happy Tears Video, Armin Goetsch, make sure that all of his creations are copyright protected. But for what purpose? He makes sure that the files are secure and every copy of it has the same class compared to the original. You don’t need to worry since they will provide wedding videos on a pen drive that can easily be copied without losing its quality.
It’s different from John Petrovic of 71 Studios since we are in the modern technology right now, they didn’t allow to send a DVD or Blu-ray copy to the couples, but sending it digitally using cloud storage like Dropbox and Google drive. It is one of the easiest and fastest way for the newlywed to view and able to provide copies and send them to their loved ones and friends.
Why do we need to do copyright protected on your film? According to Jeffery Coombes from Splendor Films, those films and videos are yours. You can do anything you want, their only job is to provide the best quality shots to make your day memorable and unique.
Brandon Esparza from Digital Producto Films said it really depends on the business. They can set their software to copyright or not. And he questioned whether the couples still need DVDs.
Since a lot of us still wondering, why do we need to use those DVDs and BLU-RAY CD? If we can able to upload it online or in our different social media accounts and send them in an instant? It will depend on the couple’s wants as well as the arrangement of the person or team who will cover the couple’s special day, which is I think, the most important.
