Your Special Day Deserves Special Treatment
Or is it the emotion of your big day?
We’ve figured it out.
When we look over old photos, we remember so much more than just the image. We remember the feeling associated with the moment, but the older the photo gets, it becomes hazier and harder to recall. Now imagine your wedding. The laughs, the mishaps, the love, commitment and sharing of joy – and imagine, for a moment, that you could capture all that. Not just the things that happened, but the sentiment behind your day. The heartfelt meaning of your wedding. Wouldn’t that be something really special?
This is what we do at Flying Samurai Productions.
Quite often brides have told us that they are so caught up in the moment on the day, that they don’t notice what has gone on around them. They feel, in the rush of events, they have missed all the details. Our videographer takes that bustle of activity, plus the love of your big day, and captures it completely! This way, not only do you have the events of your wedding, but the feeling is preserved to enjoy for years to come.
So you might be wondering how we differ from the traditional videographer?
How Do We Do It?
What makes our videos unique is that our production approach focuses primarily on making a video which builds an emotional connection with the viewers. In this way, your family and friends will enjoy watching the movie as much as you will.
Our Exclusive 4 Step Production Approach
Step 1: Interviewing The Couple
We will build a story based on an interview filmed after the wedding – once the couple have had a chance to relax and reflect on the day. Here we get to find out the back-story, from the couple themselves, to all that we are about to see. This adds anticipation, excitement and works to build a connection with the audience.
Step 2: Attending The Rehearsal
Step 3: The Wedding Day
On the day, our goal is to capture as much footage as possible using a single roaming videographer. We blend in with the guests, moving into all the right places to get the special moments and will generally leave the video camera running all day. Rest assured, we work hard to stay out of the way of the official photographer.
Step 4: Bringing It All Together
We professionally edit the footage of the wedding day, into the post-wedding interview recorded in Step 1. The result is a video in which you are able to experience, while you are watching, what the couple felt on their special day. You become emotionally connected. This is what makes us different!
Wedding packages start from $2,400 and includes:
- the production as described above, supplied in a beautifully boxed DVD
- a second DVD with cleanup edit of the full wedding ceremony
- 3 minute music video of wedding highlights for your smartphone (you supply the music track)
This is our most popular package. We are there for you on your whole wedding day, right up to midnight. This covers all weddings held in the greater Melbourne metropolitan area. If you are planning a wedding outside of this area, we can accomodate that too. Don’t hesitate to call if you have any unusual requirements.
