The Video Edit
- 30th November 2018
With the Collect+Edit package we’ll professionally and creatively edit your guests’ video clips and still images.
Once the deadline has passed, as the organiser, you will receive a link to download all the videos and photos which have been uploaded by your guests.
You’ll also receive a link to select music and “chapters” and a request to upload a text file to add titles, scrolling credits and, if you wish, guests’ names at the end of the video.
We’ll divide your video into your suggested chapters but it is up to you to ensure there is enough footage to show each chapter at your event. Encourage guests, or even designate key guests, to take footage; guide them to the ‘Take Better Video’ page for tips and advice. Lots of video footage with a modern smart phone, plus a creative edit will result in an amazing video!
You will be amazed at the results that can be achieved with a professional creative edit from footage shot with a modern smart phone but the key is to take loads of video!
Imagine the final edit if you have five or more guests taking video footage of the bride and groom and their first dance or around any central subject at your event. This is where shooting in portrait would work (and so would landscape!) with a creative edit splitting the edit into two or three showing different angles of the dance or subject. See this technique used from a compilation from Fargo vimeo.com/149874917, your event content will obviously be different, hopefully. In fact a lot can be done creatively but we need lots of footage!
The default video setting of most modern smart phones is high definition (1080p x 1920p) so your video will be edited in to this format. However, it’s not a problem if footage is taken in 4k (3840p x 2160p), we will simply downscale. In fact, 4k footage will help us with the creative process as there is more resolution to zoom in and move the frame.
The default setting for frame rate is 30 frames per second so any footage supplied at a different frame rate will be adjusted to fit.
You final video will be supplied formatted for YouTube or Vimeo for upload to your own account to distribute and send on to your friends or colleagues, within approximately two weeks. For other formats please ask.
