Of course. In fact, we will use only the music you select. When you watch your completed documentary, it should feature the songs that are special to you!
Raw tapes are useful for archival purposes, but the edited video is the one that you will want to show show friends and relatives. Of the many differences between amateur and professional video, one of the most important is editing. A well edited video flows smoothly from start to finish, combining the best camera views and audio tracks at any given time, engaging the viewer”s attention and emotions. A highlight video compresses time to a concise view of the most significant events, again flowing between them seamlessly. People remember quality productions, and want to see them over again. A more common reaction to viewing straight unedited tapes is boredom or resentment at the time involved.
Yes, the latest Canon HDV cameras record video in a high definition format (1080i). With good lighting conditions, you can see significantly more detail from this type of video than is possible from traditional “standard definition” (480i) cameras, and the clean and detailed image from HDV cameras is a noticeable improvement over older MiniDV cameras, even in playback from a normal DVD. Note that weddings shot with HDV cameras are normally distributed as traditional video on standard DVDs at this time, but BluRay disks are available too.
294. How can we insure the best video quality?
A professional videographer should use a modern video camera with 3 CCDs that delivers “broadcast quality”. The smaller cameras used for wedding and event video are not much larger than a typical consumer video camera, and provide reasonable image quality in moderately dim (if not “dark”) conditions. Additional lights can improve the image quality in very dim situations. Large shoulder-mounted cameras of the kind used by television news teams can provide superior images under difficult conditions, but they are also more obtrusive and may not be the first choice if your event is an intimate gathering. A camera mounted on a tripod will give the most stable image and is preferred for the ceremony. Monopods or hand-held cameras are most frequently used at receptions for the best angles on dancing and spontaneous action. Shooting with a moving camera in a live event without recording shaky video does require a skilled operator. Using at least two cameras is particularly recommended for the ceremony, since this can provide good views of the entrance, ceremony and exit without requiring a camera to be directly beside the couple. More than one camera angle also provides a much higher likelihood of a smooth finished video since this is a “one-take” event and unplanned incidents often happen, for example a photographer, guest, or wedding party member may block one camera view at times.
285. Why should we have a wedding video?
Only video will allow everyone to relive your wedding day as it actually happened: to see you getting ready prior to the ceremony, and walking down the aisle to your music; to hear your voices as you exchange vows and rings; to hear and see the toasts and remember the music at your reception, your first dance… It”s your only chance to preserve the complete sound and images of your wedding. This wasn”t possible in the past and still photography simply doesn”t capture the full nuance. Be sure your wedding day is professionally captured. You have just one chance to preserve all of the tenderness and laughs for you, your family and friends to watch again and again. That”s why Photo Video Chicago is the premier choice for wedding videos. We will invite your participation and input in the creation and design of your digital video, and we are confident that you will be satisfied with the final product.
