Are you looking more for an emotional appeal like this one?
Not sure if this would be close to what you’re wanting, but what about Vita Designs? They have a portfolio on their website. “Katie and Dave” under recent clients has a video that seems to pan in and out, capturing lots of different elements from the wedding day. But the camera still shakes a bit at some points so wasn’t sure.
Maybe this will help?
We’re using Human Story out of D.C. They did Mrs. Cloud’s wedding videography as well. They have some great stuff. They aren’t on the cheap side, but not as expensive as Still Motion. We were able to buy their flight to Chicago using miles, so that helped.
@Miss Tattoo: I’m currently looking for wedding cinematographers in and around the Pittsburgh area too. I originally didn’t want to hire a videographer b/c I have found that most video samples have been choppy footage, corny music, and grainy wedding video quality. I decided that I either want to pay a decent amt for a wedding cinematographer with great quality or no videographer at all. I’ve really liked two so far:
http://www.hifocused.com out towards State College area. They are willing to travel to Pittsburgh for a travel fee. One of their most recent videos looks like a trailor for a movie… it was gorgeous footage!
http://www.syncopatedpictures.com is part of Randi Voss Photography and local to Pittsburgh. I really loved this photographer, but she was out of my price range. She just started wedding cinematography very recently, so I contacted her yesterday to see about packages and availability and am waiting to hear back. She also has great cinematic footage of weddings on her website.
If you like either let me know and I’ll keep you updated with their pricing, fees, etc.! Good luck!
Miss Tattoo, try calling Pittsburgh Filmmakers , film students from Point Park Pitt and I believe CMU go to Pittsburgh Filmmakers.
You can try calling the Pittsburgh Film Office they may be able to steer you in the right direction.
I am also going talk to my brother for you, he went to Pittsburgh Filmmakers and now he works in the business. I will ask him if he knows anyone.
Package 1-A short wedding film. $1950. The film is typically 3-5 minutes length and is delivered online and on a DVD.
Package 2-A short wedding film and a longer film $3250. This package incluces the fim describe in package 1 and a longer edit of your wedding day. Usually around 10 minutes.
While Randi’s videos are amazing quality, I didn’t get that feeling like watching other highlight reels from other cinematographers. Like Stillmotion-I cry watching every one of their highlight reels. The one in NYC made me cry at every highlight reel. Then there are ones with amazing quality and amazing videos but they are missing emotion you know? I don’t know. Maybe I am being too picky.
I would second checking with Point Park. My brother just graduated two years ago with his degree in cinematography and a lot of the kids he worked with there were great. He is in California right now with Lionsgate films but I’m hoping that my brother and maybe one of his friends will be able to do ours cause you are right, there are few decent videographers or cinamatographers in Pittsburgh!
I found a guy off of CL. He’s a film maker, looking to break into the wedding circuit. I showed him what I wanted, he said he could do it. He has amazing equipment, so at the very least I will have a nice quality film (it def. won’t be documentary style even if it’s not EXACTLY what I’m looking for). The awesome part is, he would normally command a LOT of money but since he is breaking into the wedding industry he’s nice and cheap. I’m def. not paying him the $6K that Cana Films commands.
I agree!! Film schools!! ^_^
We loved ours – only have a short clip so far but it’s awesome. He’s closer to Baltimore/Philly so not sure what he’d charge to come out here but worth a shot if you like him. Here’s a link to his wedding videos (ours is the first one!) http://www.therealmav.com/events/videogallery/wedding-videos
