Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Do you shoot films outside of Melbourne?

A - Yes we shoot right across Victoria and even interstate if required. Depending on how far from Melbourne CBD we are needed, accommodation may be needed, but this is organised on a case by case basis.

 

Q - Pricing - how can it cost $1,490 for just 4 hours of filming?

A - The overwhelming majority of what we do to produce your video is in the editing phase back in the studio, after we film your day. It can take easily 3 to 4 times as long to edit all the footage, colour grade, add titles, transitions, background music, render, post etc, as it did to film on the day. This is where most of your money is going.

Q - How do we secure a booking and save our date?

A - A 25% deposit secures your date, with the remainder payable 2 weeks prior to your day.

Q - What do we physically receive?

A - You will receive a USB stick in a beautifully engraved box with your 5 minute highlight reel and your full feature film (usually 50 mins to 1 hour long, depending on how long your wedding day was, and what happened). Just like this.

Q - What are the audio options for recording the bride and groom?
A - Micing the groom with a lav mic is easy and that alone can sound good for the bride too, but where it gets really good is when you also put a lav mic inside the brides dress. We are making an instructional video on that soon - stay tuned!

Q - Do you film projects other than weddings?

A - Yes absolutely! We have years of experience filming music videos, real estate, corporate events and more. Click here to see our portfolio for examples.

Q - How does it work with the drone at a wedding?

Generally the drone footage is used as "establisher shots" as in setting the scene for the film, at the start. However the drone can be used in many spots where appropriate, and is dependant on the location. For example if you are having an outdoor wedding reception, then there can be ample oppourtunity to get some aerial footage of the party, and we use an Anafi Parrot drone, which is currently the softest 4K drone on the market (we bought it for this reason!).
