Raw Footage.

As part of my wedding video package, I always offer the raw footage, either on VHS or DVD. In most cases, the raw footage is watched only once and the people that usually see the raw footage over and over again are either the parent or older relatives that don't like the fancy editing styles.

For a single camera shoot for an 8 hr wedding, I'm looking to have between 2 to 4 tapes used at the end of the event, depending on what was going on at the wedding.

You always have the option to edit out things that you get in the raw footage before you hand the tapes/DVDs over to the couple. There are things that you will unintentionally shoot, like swearing, embarassing moments and remarks, and dead time that you can simply edit out.

Once a couple sees the raw footage, they will appreciate your edited version of their wedding that much more.

Since people are used to watch movies and movies are usualy about 1hour and 45min, that is what I offer. I am also used to this watch something thats under 2 hour, if bigger it makes me tired.
I believe it is the same way that songs should be around 4 min, and have 2 times verse, 3 times chorus and a solo part.
Regarding "raw" footage I

Raw footage. I don't know who started this... and people come and ask me for raw footage thinging that a wedding is like a movie with "mutliple takes".
All the interesting scenes are included in the edit.

Reminds me of the terms "3ccd camera" and "nonlinear edit". We use them to impress people and then come back and hit us! And now I have to put 5 hours of "raw" on dvds!:)

"That Indian wedding- I read this other videographer did one and the B&G didn't even smile once for the entire ceremony... like it was a sin to look happy or something. Yes, it would be tough to make that interesting - on that we agree. "ummm... sorry I'm already booked for that date."

Hahahaha
nah mate with the money theyre paying, im happy to stand around for 3 or so hours... lol

thing with weddings is that there are many ways to deliver, i feel that a longform then a 30min highlight is usually sufficient, if they wat it even shorter, i charge them..

i mean were talkin 2 very different forms of edits as it stands without any more hacking... we do ALOT of work, and here in aus, its coming to a point where a standard single camera job is going for $1600, which is not good...

Its come to a poitn wher eim taking 2 or even 3 bookings for the same date...
