After 60- 80 hours of work on a DVD, I normally get a nice thank-you email or occasionaly a phone call but never enough recognition for me for the effort I put into my projects. The SDE brings instant gratification - I can't wait to do the next one!

Oh yes.. it doesn't happen every time though, it depends on the crowds. But I once had a fantastic crowd and they cheered and clapped throughout the entire 4 minutes viewing. All those hard work paid off right at that moment. :)

Re: Anyone producing same-day edits?

Hi guys,

Allow me to chip in a bit since I have done quiet a few SDE (probably 30-40ish so far)

I started by doing it with 2 people with no charge


had great response, almost died because of rushing everything, had lots of new experience

after a few more sde, started charging $550 for it for a while.. and hired the third person for it. so we basically earned no money for it.

bear in mind that when we do SDE, we no longer do the usual 5 min cinematic trailer for them so I treat SDE as a time saver for post production hence the small charge is worth it in my opinion. Plus, its a great marketing tool and exciting task/challenge for your team to do.

today we charge $1100 for it with still 3 people on the team for SDE shoot. The extra fee is not plenty for a lot of other people. I know my other friends in aussie are charging up to 2500 for SDE but im quite sure they dont do as many SDE as me. So its definitely a choice between whether you want to make a (proper) money for it or do you want to do more of it for other purpose than money.

This is the latest SDE we did (last saturday) I think we have learned a lot since our first one.

Nice piece Susanto - loved the open sequence!

I normally deliver both a cinematic trailer as well as an extended highlight with all of my packages (without SDE). When I sell an SDE, it replaces both. Again, I've only done one so far but I see this being a big timesaver for me as well.

Re: Anyone producing same-day edits?

Santo, was your latest SDE edited on Premiere? And how many cameras on the ceremony? You covered it from quite a few angles.

Btw, that was an awesome ring shot!! Simple but sweet

Susanto, simply wow! Can't believe it's the SDE. Love the interracial couple.. fun to see a middle eastern guy wearing Vietnamese outfit. All these Chinese door games in the morning is quite a tortune to the groom and the groomsman. but they were fun.

That is great that you can have the SDE to replace both trailer and highlight. I don't know how we can do that here but it definitely is an option.

Re: Anyone producing same-day edits?

I've shot 10 SDE's now - 5 of those by myself (shoot & edit). They are usually about 3 min 30. I take my laptop with me and log as I go. Will shoot some timelapse as well, which I put together in After Effects. Edit is in Final Cut - so footage is transferred to ProRes which takes time. Find it pretty straight forward and I can hand everything off to the client the next day.

I also set up the projector and sound system - which is done just before screening and is never straight forward......lots of sweating.

Here is one I shot a few days ago:
