So I shot/edited/delivered a wedding DVD to a client. Had a phone call today to say "loved the result...but some guests are not in the video, can I have the raw footage to check if more footage can be added to the final edit"
I explained that it is impossible to capture all guests (500+ in total)...everything at an Asian wedding is happening on stage...normally, a guest would come on stage turn by turn to have a photo/video shot taken. Now apparently, not everyone came up on stage...even though I checked if there are more to come. My job is to capture the main events...not every tom, dick & harry...not my problem if somebody decided not to go up on the stage. As long as the immediate family is featured in the final edit, I dont care. Am I right? Should I give the clients the raw footage?
