We usually use "Mary and John's Wedding Day". But it's an option on our contract/order form and the B&G can write in any title they want. I believe it should be their choice.

No titles in the video, just the DVD screens

I do not have titles in the video.

On the DVBD splash screen last time I had

John & Mary
Together Forever

then PLAY / CHAPTER SELECTION

then on the chapter selection screen I had the titles of the different sections

- Chapel
- Arrival of Guests
- Groom preparations
- Bride preparations
- Ceremony
- Congratulations
- Reception arrival
- Reception Toasts
- Cutting of the Cake
...
- Good wishes

at the end of the video I had credits... The list was almost as long as a Hollywood movie's!

Also... do all of you add a plug for your company at the beginning of the video? What other places on the DVD do you use to promote yourself?

Regards,

-- Andre

Andre,
I have a 15 second movie that is the First Play on our DVDs with company logo and music. Then the wedding splash screen appears with B&G's names.
Sample:
http://beaconvideo.net/samples/BLSIntro.wmv

At the very end of the movie, my company name appears and fades off. It is also on the media and cases with web, E-mail, etc. I don't want to overdo the advertising and try to take a subtle approach.

Having your company intro as first play on the DVD is subtle?
You might want to re-visit Webster's latest edition and possibly adjust your chapter marks.

Don't get me wrong, but when I read your list of ad placements I don't think you missed any. It's just that your summary statement stridently contradicts your credo.

Just a humble observation..

Respectfully - Jimmy.

Hi Jimmy,

I guess what is called "subtle" might be subjective. The name of my company appears once and only once in small font at the very end of each movie. I call that subtle. A 15 second intro on DVD before a 60 to 90 minute movie is what I call subtle. A company name and contact info on a DVD case's back side is what I call advertising.

If I used flying graphics, screaming fonts and Star Wars music then that would not be subtle.

Of course you're entitled to your definition.

Regards.
Bob

I agree with the tag idea at the end and you bet, an innocuous shingle on the back side of the case is indeed something I would not forget. I suppose the reason I have never authored my :15 spot at the beginning is due to my high percentage of corporate vs wedding/special event work.
The other reason is that given the non-linear navigation of the DVD vs. tape, the viewer can easily go to the credits/participants link to see the names of all involved.
I understand your perspective, I guess I have always been a little traditional at keeping in the background as a service provider.

Jimmy,
I believe I take the same approach you do with regard to corporate projects. There is no First Play intro on our corporate DVDs. They're less artistic and straight to the subject matter.
