During booking season, we typically have over 200 inquiries with over 100 scheduled appointments within 3 months. Our statistics show that 80% of the wedding couples book video LAST. Actually, most couples say they didn’t even CONSIDER videography until they realized they had just enough in their budget to add video.
At Live Picture Studios, we are doing our best to educate the wedding community in New Jersey and New York on how Valuable and Important video can be when produced correctly. There’s such a terrible perception of video! When most couples think of video, they think it’s some shaky footage, old school 1980’s or 1990’s home video. They think that someone with an iPhone would be good enough to relive those moments.
Quite often we are asked what the difference between a Short Film Edit vs. a Long Form Regular Edit. Well, in this blog, we will try to help you understand the differences between them. Can you have both edits? Yes you may have both edits if that’s what you want =)
Creative Short Film Edit (documentary style):
When you tell or watch a story whether it’s a short or feature film, what is the basic foundation you expect? If you don’t know, there’s an introduction, middle, and an ending. Well, that’s exactly what we do when you choose to have your story told. We have one thing in mind when we go through this process. That thing is giving you an “experience” to remember for the rest of your life. It’s about telling a story using what we find is compelling in your day from the Priest’s advice, best man and maid of honor toast, to how your day was formed.
Long Form Regular Edit (non documentary style):
With this edit option, we give our couples the opportunity to have a long-form edit. This style of editing is catered to couples who does not care much about the creativity or story, but just want their day covered. Of course, it’s hard for us to resist just covering, so we do try our best to create compelling shots that would be appreciated.
Every couple is different and although we live in 2013, there are many couples that just want footage covered with basic editing of their day from the time you are getting ready, to the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the reception.
