My photographer has a choice of a highlight fusion video, which is about 8-10 minutes long or a cinema style video about 23 minutes long.
The shorter video uses the help of a reallllyy good videographer who’s work looks like movie quality.
The longer video will use 2 different view points as well, but only with the use of a 2nd assistant not the amazing professional woman!
The professional is known for doing short film type videos, and doesn’t really do longer videos. but her style is AMAZING!
What do I do???
I hope it isn’t self promotion because i’m not her company, but you can see her longer video here:http://vimeo.com/39670537
Shorter style with help of 2nd professional here: http://vimeo.com/34372287
I need help!!! I was told I can also get the raw footage along with the editted version and I’ll also get a full chapter with the whole ceremony included even though the video might not show EVERY piece of it.

I like the longer one because you can feel the excitement of the day as well as see all the gorgeous details! I am not gonna lie, the second one seemed boring. But that’s just me! Overall they both do a good job!! 🙂 Good Luck!

Being a cinematographer myself, I find that people get bored really quick when I would show them a longer full length film (anything over 20 minutes). Especially since we live in a world where social media seems responsible for short attention span.
Advice is to not select your package based on the length of the film. Honestly, cinematographers enjoy creating the highlight film more than they do the full length film because of the tools we’re using. No longer are cinematographers running around with shoulder mounted video cameras, but instead using DSLR cameras, which allows for more unique and creative shots.
One last note on the full length film is that we only offer it because we know that parents and grandparents want to see it. And my guess after watching the film, is that the DVD just gets placed on the shelf never to be seen again. Whereas, since we practically live on the Internet, your highlight film will always be accessable via the web.
I hope this helps!
