HOW LONG ARE YOU GUYS WITH US FOR ON THE DAY?

Hey, the general idea is - If we commit to a wedding, we commit to a wedding. Weddings don't happen in 8 hours! We will cover the wedding properly, normally we are at a wedding for about 10-14 hours which covers everything from the prep to the bride & groom getting ready all the way through to the party scenes covering all the key moments between. We don't like to throw time limits around as no two weddings are the same.  

 

DO YOU ONLY USE SUPER 8? 

No! We do certainly use digital too. We are sometimes moved towards a slightly more cinematic look.

 

WHAT DOES CINEMATIC MEAN? 

Good question. Cinematic is using techniques used in the world of cinema with the cameras, ideas, pace & post production, to give a polished and cleaner cut look than the super 8. Sometimes its really cool to add the two ideas together and make a film with both digital and the analogue super 8 together.

 

WHO DECIDES ON THE MUSIC?

A cool way to do it is if you can send us 15ish tracks that mean something to you guys and we will see if we can pick something to fit the day and editing. If not you can leave it to us and we can pick something we think appropriate and complimenting to your wedding day. 

 

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU? 

Best thing to do is either fill out our contact form and we will send you an email back with a bit of info and we can go from there, perhaps have a chat, Skype or a meet-up as well before you make any decisions. There is a contract along the way and a deposit same as everyone.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE FILM TO US AFTER THE WEDDING?

Usually we allow 2 - 4 months. How come ? Using super 8 is fairly slow process from beginning to end. First we have to send it to Germany to get processed and then it needs to be sent back to London to be made to a digital file so we can edit it on the computer. Then we need to edit it for you, but good things come to those who wait!

 

HOW WILL WE BE ABLE TO WATCH IT?

You will receive your full resolution HD films via post. We will also email you a link to the online highlights video which you can share on social media with your friends & family too. 

 

WHY SHOULD WE GET A VIDEO?

I think the real value of films is perhaps not immediately after the wedding but in the years to come. Having shot stills for many years I appreciate the value of stills but, photographs don't move. To see one second of how you looked at each together in moving footage, to see how the children move and how amazing you looked, beaming and glowing is something that is to be appreciated in moving footage years later. To watch occasionally to share with children and one day grandchildren, perhaps, just an idea. 

 

DO WE NEED BOTH OF YOU OR IS ONE OF YOU OK ? 

One is great and loads of fun but sometimes its worth having 2 :) Depends on logistics, how we are going to get about and what our ideas are but either or we can make you a film.  Sometimes if you pair are getting ready in different places is the main reason and double angles on the action gives us loads more footage for your edit. 

 

HOW DO YOU WORK ON THE DAY? WILL YOU BE IN THE WAY? 

Making a film is trying to predict the most important 10 minutes of the day, the most important seconds, in the most important places and our job is to be in those places when those seconds happen. We try not to get involved but be around documenting those moments using the 8mm tape as our platform to tell your story. We don’t interfere we are just around, wondering, finding the light, paying attention to what's happening and quietly watching everything.
