What's the deal?
Our team of cinematographers are the invisible guests at your event, capturing both the big moments & small details that perfectly capture your wedding experience. This unobtrusive approach allows you and your guests to feel at ease in front of the camera and enjoy your day without posing.
We are embarrassed by wedding "paparazzi" who use bulky cameras and overbearing gear, so we've adopted the style of using minimal equipment and cool-looking retro cameras. People are always so intrigued by our cameras that we typically make many new friends by the end of the night.
Do you shoot weddings with super 8 and digital?
Super 8 is our medium of choice for weddings but we now offer digital HD video as well. We offer both film only packages as well as digital HD + film combo packages. Please get in touch to find out more.
Does super 8 film record sound?
Super 8 is a silent film format, and as former DJs, we love editing images to music. We want your film to express the essence of YOU, so we use the music of your choice... or we're happy to help with your selections. If you want your personal vows recorded and weaved into the final edit, we do that too, as an add-on service.
What kind of looks can you get with super 8 film?
Thanks to Kodak, we now have a wide variety of types of super 8 film. You can choose to have the pretty, soft look of color negative film stock, a pop-y retro look with color reversal, or go traditional with black and white. Please refer to this handy guide to super 8 film stocks to learn more.
Do you travel for weddings?
Of course! All the time actually. We are based in Brooklyn, NY but we pretty much live on planes, trains and automobiles going to and from events. Since we love to experience new places so much we don't charge travel fees... we just ask that you cover transportation and 2 nights accommodation.
How long is the finished product & when do we get it back?
We believe that less is more. We capture the spirit and atmosphere of the day, rather than a boring play by play. That's why our films range from just 5 to 20 minutes. We don't want your investment to collect dust on the shelf, we want it to be watched again and again!
It takes a little while to get the film back from our lab, we get busy during the height of wedding season and we like to take our time polishing and perfecting your final edit so you'll be really really pleased. That's why finished films are typically ready anywhere between 3 to 5 months after the wedding.
How do we watch and share our film with others?
Although super 8 is a vintage film format, you won't need the family to gather around an old projector to watch. Instead, your footage will be professionally edited and digitally transferred to a USB flash drive for easy viewing, sharing and archiving. AND you can share your film with loved ones anywhere in the world with a link to your own personal web page.
Cool, what do we need to book you?
We ask for a signed contract + 50% deposit to save your date. The remaining balance is due 1 week before the wedding. Easy peasy.
