I think the next big thing in wedding videos will be Pornymoons. B&G hires the video guy to shoot and edit a porno parody of their honeymoon night in the sack.

Just imagine the new gear that is spawned from such a trend....the penis cam for instance.
The gear pimps will come out of the woodwork and try to convince us we need to go spend our hard-earned $$$ on the new cumming hardware thingy.

Oh sure, there will be one of the video Gods try to slide the 5D on a glidetrack across the top of the sheets and fly a Glidecam up the butt of the groom. Then there will be plenty of the predictable butt snorkeling, praising the Gods of video about how well the "story" was told with such creative shooting and color grading.

How do you charge for this? the inch?

That's what I'm guessin'

Surely recording and editing on film and then transferring the finished item to HD is almost copping out?

The thing about film (and analogue VT for that matter) is that the medium recorded 100% of the throughput from the lens. As soon as the film or analogue VT is digitised the x% lost in compression is chucked away and although I've no technical figures to support my case, I'll bet the ethereal difference most people agree that film has is thrown away at that point.

Converting or mixing technologies invariably brings its own problems - anyone else recall the outcry for a widescreen video version of "Gone With The Wind" when back-catalogue films on VHS video became available - and the shameful mashing of the original Academy ratio (4:3) photography when such a version was produced?

Steve nails it. There is no substitiute for the real thing. At the conspicuous consumption end of the market there is a place for film. But as with Picasso lithographs or John Lennon's guitar picks - the fact that the real thing is treasured, doesn't mean anyone values a fake, even if it is identical to the real thing.
