I attended a wedding filmmakers boot-camp in March to try and learn something new and keep up with new filming styles and techniques.
Learning from the best in the business is always a great idea and adding all the new styles and ideas with all I already have has got to produce some stunning results for my clients in the future.
The day focused on the Short Form edit style for much of the morning which seems to be the best style of high end wedding edits at the moment. With life so fast people don’t want to be sitting hours watch their wedding film do they? This style adds so much scope for story telling and emotion that it bound to touch the hearts of even the hardiest viewers. Short forms can be viewed on DVD, Bluray, online and on devices such as iPhones and tablest too!
Equipment was another area covered by the crew including steadicams and cranes, and the parts they play in wedding shoots. I bought my crane for my latest Asian wedding and its one of my best buys to date, offering so much scope in establishing my shot locations.
Here are some highlights from the boot-camp. I didn’t film much on the day as it was a learning experience, but I have put together a few shots of what I did take, with some exciting A Team music.
Filmed exclusively with the Panasonic GH2 and my trusty Glidepod.
