THE STORY OF JOSEPHINE + MARK
It’s been a while since we posted a full length wedding film so we are pleased to share our latest edit. Josephine and Mark decided to have a cinematic ‘ short-form’ edit rather than the more traditional full length documentary format. This format uses editing techniques from the cinema and TV world to condense time using audio from the speeches and ceremony as narrative to tell the story of the day This is in contrast with the more traditional documentary format which shows the day in a linear chronological format with the ceremony and speeches as a continuous, separate segments within the film. Hope I have explained that! To ensure that they didn’t miss anything, Josephine and Mark also received a full length version of the ceremony and speeches.
For the technical minded, the day was filmed by one cinematographer using up to three cameras, including, a Panasonic GH4, Sony A7S and a Sony AX100 shooting in 4K. Audio was captured separately by small, discrete, strategically placed recorders. The edit involved a lot of subtle effects using Red Giant’s colour grading software, ‘Looks’ and Mojo as well as other effects from Adobe.
The day itself was a joy with Mark arriving in a newly cleaned tractor, which caused a bit of a stir, as well as a few tailbacks I suspect! Loseley is a lovely venue to film in and the light during the ceremony was a delight, giving some lovely shadows and highlights. Although time was tight, we managed some ‘couple footage’ in the enclosed gardens. A really nice day with a great couple as you can see from the film.
We have included a few stills from the film, which are simply video frames taken on the day. The quality of these frames is markedly superior to the frame stills we were able to capture just a few years, reflecting the quality of the cameras we use for filming.
