So, just what is a wedding FILM and how does it differ from a wedding VIDEO? A wedding film differs in a lot of ways but I think the key is in the name itself. Now I don’t mean it just has a better sound to it like being a domestic engineer is a better way to say housewife. When I say the word “video” most of you think of two things; that closet upstairs or the attic where there is a box full of old VHS tapes that no one has watched in years. You know those tapes, the ones where your dad video taped your 8th birthday party or the family vacation. Think back to the last time you watched any of those videos, how long ago was it? I would bet it was a while ago. The other thing you may think of is those silly video’s you see on YouTube or on “America’s Funniest Home Video’s”. I like watching those just as much as the next person, but I can only watch them a couple of times.
Those are video’s. Something you watch maybe once or twice and then they go up on the shelf or in a box. When I say film, you most likely think about a movie. Look around your house at all the DVD’s you have. I would say it is a good bet one of those DVD’s is your favorite movie and I also say it’s fair to guess you’ve watched that movie more then 3 times. One of my favorite movies is “The Shawshank Redemption”. I have seen that movie more times then I can count and if it’s on TV I will stop and watch it from whatever point it’s at in the movie. That is the difference between a wedding video and a wedding film, a wedding video you will watch once and was most likely done by a family friend. A wedding film is something you will watch over and over again for years to come. Something you will want to share with family, something that will become a family heirloom or a piece of living history.
What we offer with Midnight Magic Studios is a wedding film that you will want to watch. Our philosophy is simple; WE CARE. We care about every aspect of your wedding film from the first meeting to the final delivery. Our goal is to make you feel as if your wedding is the only wedding we will work on this year. Because to us, your wedding IS the only wedding we are working on this year. We place our focus on your wedding day by only booking ONE wedding per day. That way we can considerate on you and your wedding day. We place our focus on you by having the owner present at all times on your wedding day. This makes sure your wedding film is done right. You see, we only get ONE chance to capture your wedding day. There are no “Do Overs” on a wedding day.
WE CARE about your wedding by not staging or setting up any shots. Staged shots looked staged and look fake. We capture your wedding day as it happens. We get all the emotion, feelings and special moments as they happen. We do this by being ready at all times and by having the experience of over 10 years of shooting weddings. We also take the time to get to know you, your groom and your family. We want to know as much about you as possible. This allows us to produce a wedding film that not only captures your day, but also captures your style, your taste and your memories.
WE CARE about you by having the best staff of female videographers available. What does this mean for you? With having female videographers available, we can have them in the room with the bride while she is getting ready. This allows her to feel more comfortable while she is getting dressed and provides us with some great footage of the bride in the moments before her ceremony.
WE CARE about your wedding by having broadcast quality cameras and wireless microphones. We use two microphones during the ceremony, one on the groom and one on the minster. This allows us to capture all the sounds from your ceremony, including your vows to each other.
WE CARE about your wedding by allowing you to have a choice. A choice in every aspect of your film. Everything from the music we add to your film to the look of the label and DVD box. We give you choice in your film packages. All packages are customizable. We don’t limit you to just three or four pre set packages. We allow you to take a package and add to it or totally customize your own package just the way you want.
WE CARE about your wedding by giving you one person for all contacts; the OWNER.
WE CARE about your wedding by helping you find the wedding vendors that best fit you and fit your wedding. We recommend only the best vendors in the area, people we know, people who will do the work you want, the way you want it.
