“The entire byDesign Films team was so enjoyable to work with – from the initial emails and phone conversations with Brittany, to the day of our wedding, to the final footage. Everything was so organized and professional.” – Caroline Andren
As any wedding planner or couple can tell you, the modern wedding is a complex event with a lot of moving parts. For a cinematographer to get the best possible wedding film images on a hectic day, he needs to have awesome organizational skills before, during and after the big day.
“Our wedding day went very smoothly. The shooters arrived on time,immediately set up their equipment, and got right to work. We hardly even noticed them throughout the day as they just did what they were supposed to do.Both the highlight video and full feature film were delivered to us in a timely manner. Our project manager was exceptional, and made sure that our feedback was directly relayed to the editor, and captured in the final product.” – Antonela Brkic
What does a cinematographer need to know on your wedding day? Here are some basic planning skills that must be in place to get you the best wedding film.
1. The cinematographer needs to know which events need to be captured. Make-up and prep? First look? The ceremony? The reception? Tossing the bouquet? Your exit?
2. There must be a documented plan for the day, including a complete list of events and times.
3. All names of key people who must be captured on the wedding day need to be available.
4. The cinematographer must understand how intrusive he can be on the day. Do you want him out of sight? Where will multiple cameras be placed? Who is the “day of” contact directing the cinematographer before and during the events?
byDesign Films offers you a film project manager,completely dedicated to knowing every detail of our wedding day. Your project manager works with you from the very beginning, ensuring that your cinematographer knows exactly where to be, how intrusive to be, who the important people are, and which events to capture.
