With HD cameras, true raw footage is a digital file folder of hundreds of separate video clip files. It is unprocessed, unrefined data straight from the video camera. We shoot with DSLR cameras which results in a variety of clip durations. Footage clips can vary from a short of amount of time to a long period of time. The footage remains as it was captured, retaining all details, true colors and lighting, and it also has no sound and you would need your own hard drive to even keep these large files. Since many couples do not own the computers and editing software needed to watch these files, we make a Spotlight Edit. We clean up the raw footage by cutting out camera adjustments or repetitive shots and edit it together so you can watch the most important parts of your day—your ceremony, dances and toasts—in full. The Spotlight Edit will be on a USB that is formatted for both PC and Mac computers.
This is one of those times when more is actually more. The more cinematographers you have, the more dynamic, breathtaking and emotional your film will be. Multiple shooters allow us to get stunning angles from the balcony, epic sweeping shots of the ballroom and different perspectives of life as they happen simultaneously, like the bride’s grand entrance and the groom’s reaction to her entrance.
