Hi Peter -

That's where you put an "easter egg" on the DVD <wink>! I've done "alternate mixes" for B&G privately, and one to send to relatives - pretty easy to add an item or switch templates in DVDA, and it helps when there's material that's too good to toss, but not quite ready for prime time...

Rather than relying on alcohol, the MC, guests or your own expertise - why not hire a pro experienced at producing the type of product you want? Any videographer who is comfortable and confident with the different "interview" scenarios will have a selection on their demo.

Interesting that your videography experience leads you to value this type of footage. I think you are right to do so. With all the "wouldn't you love to see a film of your parent's wedding" it surprises me that wedding video promos are still full of slow pans of flower beds and extreme close-ups of the groom tieing his shoelaces. The nature of the video medium favors authenticity over artifice - to my eye contrived/staged shots just work better with stills where there is so much more opportunity to finesse and composite.

Gints, this sounds somewhat similar to a style I produce called a "Cinematic Narrative" wedding, which is narrative driven. The audio is captured via formal interview sessions with the couple. I sometimes do this with guests, but not as often. Usually if the client requests it.

I'll actually be in your area this season to shoot a wedding. I'm looking forward to it.
