Re: Anyone offer ONLY a highlight video?

Yo Bourcier

I actually just sold one of these highlight packages to someone. They were really looking for more of the creative story piece and willing to give up full coverage. I told them I'd give them the raw footage (or *good* raw footage). But said I won't have complete ceremony, 1st dance, toasts and she said she'd just have a friend do it and that was fine with them. Then obviously I'd be running really good audio the whole time - which she actually said was really important to her cause she's seen so many wedding videos with horrible audio. So she was pretty happy when I told her how many audio sources and mic's I run. They're getting educated, cool to see.

Re: Anyone offer ONLY a highlight video?

I offer a single priced package:

2-minute trailer
12-15-minute short form/Highlights
Running Footage (ceremony, speeches, candid footage) also available on DVDs, maybe 60-80 mm.

The Trailer and the Short Form Highlights are what the couple will undoubtedly watch most and share with friends; but they also love having the other footage there on their disc. (I've edited it while creating the Highlights, so why not share it with them....)

1 Camera is used for 99% of Trailer/Highlights (all respect to Nigel). 2nd Camera mainly for Running Ceremony footage.

Garrgh Tim, I thought I was the only one offering that in Mass :P

You could always MagicLantern a t3i and leave it on a tripod during the whole ceremony just to have that coverage for a full version, pretty cheap to enact.
