It is so fantastic to know that nowadays videographers can tell a story using the modern technologies that we have right now. The cohesive narrative that they come up with to make the wedding video enjoyable to watch. No doubt that the revolution of DSLR affects the wedding film industry. But do we really know, how does a high-end wedding cinema differentiate from a traditional video?
According to Danny O’Neill, Wedding Videographer of Minty Slippers tells us that what makes high-end wedding video different from a traditional video is the element of the story. We are always looking for something beautiful and entertaining and that is what it can deliver. People will notice that high-end wedding cinema cost more than traditional video but they should know that it is a lot harder to produce and takes a lot more time to make sure all the elements in your wedding day are there and it flows perfectly from one point in time to another.
Quality of the production, coverage and price are what Patrik Kisucky of Films with Heart has to say about their difference. High-end wedding cinema is all about telling your story and using the audio captured during your big day to create a movie/film about you, your families, and your journey.
James Mason from Story Box Films said a high-end wedding cinematographer creates a short film that focuses more on the story, which harnesses the overall emotion of the day and to tell a story that’s engaging, fun, and honest.
Johnny Driver from Red Forest Films thinks the difference between a cinematic wedding video and tradition wedding video has to do with how you want to engage the viewer. A cinematic production captures not just the visuals but the moods and tones and feelings of the day.
Dawn Kawauchi, Operations Manager of Drift Wood Films says that they differ a lot. In a traditional video, you can just have one camera on a tripod and usually the built-in microphone of the camera captures the audio but with high-end wedding cinema, you are like making a short file with two or more cinematographers who change positions from time to time to capture important moments.
Owner of Isabel Cinematheque, Isabel González thinks that the traditional wedding video is typically a longer chronological edit that shows the events of the day sequentially. High-end tells the story of the day and brings across the personality of the people, the story of the couple and the vibe, energy and emotions of the ceremony and reception and can vary in length and sequence.
Having a high-end wedding cinema for your big day is really worth it. It cost higher but it is worth it. With all the experts have to say about it, no wonder many couples invested in having this kind of video for their day.
