    We have a very talented crew who are more than capable of meeting the requirements that you stated. I can offer a quality production for 750 - 800.

    If this is something that your client is interested in please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Tracey, why is this so much higher than the price you quoted in another thread? I can't find samples of work on your site? Can you show me samples of weddings you have covered in the last 6 months?

    For any company wishing to quote for this - I am unable to commit to a full blown wedding shoot due to a prior booking in Wiltshire the following day - I think I'd be over extending myself. I am however available with the Jib or Glidecam to film on an ad-hoc basis. Price 250 for the day.

    Click the link below and use the contact page or PM me here.

    Hi Marc,

    The price quoted in the other thread was for a very basic filming and editing. The quote I provided you was taking into consideration your requirement of at least three cameras and two camera men. Also, the camera men offered in the previous quote were mainly looking for experience whereas your own quote I would be providing more experienced camera men.

    If you do still require a videographer I am always willing to discuss price and requirements. At the moment we are still building on our current website but if you are interested I can have footage from previous wedding projects available to you.

    Kindest Regards

    Tracey

    If its a wedding, then chances are, most guests will have their own video cameras... Evirios are HD as standard and use hard discs instead of tapes.

    Maybe you should look at guests doing the filming, which would give plenty of footage options, and then hiring an editor to put it all together.

    DVD's are dirt cheap, so reproductions would be very easy... everybody that attends could get a copy of the completed wedding DVD and the extra cost would be negligable.

    Just make sure 'someone' is made the responsible party and they purchase the MCPS license prior to the day (it's required to record / reproduce live events / music) and the PPL licenses required if the final product uses any commercial music. Not doing so is breaking the law and that's not a good way to start a marriage

    In terms of guests doing the filming - if you are looking for a 'home movie' with less that great audio, noisy (picture noise) shaky and badly coordinated shooting then by all means this is the way to go. Multiple guests with multiple camera can capture lots of different angles, provide endless wobbles, fantastic shaky footage and produce work that simply doesn't cut together very well at all, either because they didn't "shoot for the edit" (most people have no idea) or because the footage from all these different cameras can't be matched in post for colour. There's a limit to what even a good editor can do with home movie style footage. I've had several people come to me asking if I can some how get a professional looking DVD from the footage shot by their guests and most of the time it's not only impossible, but it's a joke!

    Someone also needs to be responsible for collecting all the footage together from guests that disperse far and wide and who really don't want to give up their only copy of the wedding. Someone needs to figure out how to duplicate all this footage so that each guest can keep their own copy!

    It's a nice idea, and if planned AND executed well could work, but the reality usually turns out to be far below expectations.
