The creative eyes and steady hands behind the captivating films by Trapdoor Films, belong to Martin and Michelle Stanesby.

For years both have indulged in a love for making films that feature sharp, creative shots and seamless, high quality editing, to create a beautiful, engaging works of art.

In 2014 they decided to stop doing this as a hobby and became full time, professional videographers. They have since worked at numerous weddings, parties and charitable events, producing

nothing short of gorgeous art.

The Films

Before any cameras are even turned on, Michelle and Martin will discuss with you what it is you want from the film and talk about what it is they can do to achieve this. On the day, you'll have both

Michelle and Martin working behind the camera, capturing the best shots with creative angles.

It is then time to get editing. They'll trawl through all the footage, finding the very best shots and sequences that will tell the story of your day; just the way that you want it to.

The Cost Of Videography

With the rising popularity of professional wedding videography there are many companies out there offering a variety of services for your wedding. But, there are also a variety of costs for different wedding videographers.

This comes as no surprise as with this there is also a variety in quality of the wedding video that you will get at the end. Wedding videography can range from as little as £395 to around £5000. This is a wide gap. However, similarly wedding photography will be varied in the same way. There is an element of truth in ‘you pay for what you get’.

 

 The Differences in what you get

What is noticeable first is the look of the wedding video. The lower end videos will adopt a home video look, and the shots  and angles may be less impressive. Most of all, the editing can let the film down by being either predictable with poor transitions, or just badly put together which ends up as just a montage of clips to background music. The higher end wedding videographers will adopt a film look, the filming techniques will be more advanced and impressive, and editing will be seamless.

 

 Are You Paying For What You Get?

So, if you want a high end wedding videographer why should they come cheap?

What I really can’t understand is those who want a good videographer but don’t want them cheap. I never really hear this of a photographer? Often a videographer is last on the list and only if the budget allows, or if there is a bit of money left over. Many high end photographers are even more expensive than a videographer and have a far less work to produce the finished product.

A wedding videographer will have to use far more hardware filming kit throughout the day to capture the variety of shots and filming techniques. They will need to capture good audio by using a variety of different high quality microphones on different people in different locations. Then when the day is over the videographer has even more work with weeks and weeks of post production editing to produce your finished feature film.

So it pains me when someone would expect a wedding videographer to be cheaper than a photographer. Yes, if you do want this then, as mentioned, there are those that could probably meet your budget….if that's suitable for you, and you're content with that kind of finished film. However, don’t expect what you can get at the high end. Try comparing their films and see what you think.

 

Conclusion then?

When you think about it, a wedding film of your day will preserve those memories spectacularly. A film would also capture the emotion just as it was. During your wedding day you will miss so much and it will pass so quick. Imagine having things appear in your wedding video you had no idea about?

In my opinion a wedding videographer should cost double what a photographer charges solely because of the work load that has to go into it. Though realistically this doesn't happen. Having said this, wedding videography is only starting to become a more widely known professional product, and many still don’t know what is on offer with film nowadays. When it has taken it’s rightful place at the top end of the wedding planning check list then maybe prices will accurately reflect the service.

Why Wedding Videography

What is the need of wedding video production?

Months of planning goes into your wedding day, the day arrives and you love every minute of it. But the day goes so quick and before you know it you find yourself thinking back over what happened during the day. Often you can’t remember much because there was so much going on and you hadn’t time to take it all in!

So how will you preserve these wonderful memories? There is no better way than to have your very own wedding video.

Stories will unfold during your day, some you wouldn’t even have noticed, and it’s important that these are captured. By capturing these in a wedding film it also captures the spirit of your day with it. Just imagine being able to re-live your wedding day over and over by enjoying your own wedding video which takes you on an emotional roller-coaster from tears to laughter?

 

Photographer or Videographer?

Planning a wedding can be expensive, and often having a wedding videographer is last on the list, if the budget stretches that far. In contrast to this a photographer will traditionally be first on the list to be booked. Having a good quality photographer to capture special moments is important. However, still images won’t bring your day back to life, they won’t capture the emotion as it happens, and they won’t capture what was said or heard. A still image will bring back a memory that we would have to remember ourselves, but now imagine actually seeing and hearing all that again in a true cinematic style film? Is there any comparison?

A good quality photographer can often be a similar cost to a videographer, often even more expensive than a video. A videographer will then have weeks and weeks of editing to create a film for you on top of the day’s videography. As well as the visual, audio would be captured to a high quality standard. After all, there is little point to a visual without decent sound. Have you ever tried watching a film, or TV programme with awful audio? It's so off putting. When this is all taken into account a wedding videographer is actually quite cost effective with the amount of work that will go into creating your wedding video. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's photography vs videography, as it's not a competition, and both provide a significant difference. When it comes to capturing actual memories there's no comparison.

 

What you get

A modern wedding video should be of high-definition on ultra-wide cinematic widescreen giving the video a dramatic sense of occasion. That's what your life-changing event merits. Care should be taken in post-production to make it so much more than just a montage of clips with music tacked on; it creates a beautiful and authentic record of the day. A lot of time needs to be spent with the post production. The editing needs to be so spot on that it's as though the film clips were made for the music. The audio and visual must be integrated using voice-over and music in such a way that they are married together.
There is an old saying in the film industry that “all good films are made in the cutting room.”

 

What is the conclusion?

Wedding videography has come a long way since the days of a camcorder. Those days are thankfully gone. Now there is really no limit to what can be re-produced on film. Of course, there are still different levels of video production. Wedding videography companies will differ in their shooting style and quality; this will reflect in the price. If you settle for a cheap videographer this will clearly reflect in the finished product. You may well then end up with a home video look which you don't want. Your wedding video should have a filmic look. Therefore it is important to watch some of the videos the video production company has produced.

Wedding video production is becoming steadily much more apparent and popular now with modern day cinematic techniques. We would encourage you to seriously consider having your own feature film of your wedding day, it's a once in a lifetime event. A wedding video will be a way of not only remembering your day, but to re-live it over and over. Don’t just settle for still images, but have a cinematic wedding video to bring it all back to life!

How To Choose Your Wedding Videographer

What's The Deal

It’s the most wonderful occasion of your life, and your wedding video should perfectly encapsulate the spirit and magic of your big day. Preserving wonderful memories, it will become a family heirloom watched on anniversaries for years to come. But which wedding videographer do you trust with the creation of this crucial wedding element? With many wedding videographers in Essex area how do you decide which is right for you?

Research may begin online, or by word-of-mouth. A wedding video is a visual record. When conducting research make sure you see examples of the work of your potential wedding videographer. Trapdoor Films, reputable and professional film-makers, display a portfolio online so you can assess the style of their work. This ensures that it is in keeping with the theme and ambience that you are seeking to generate.

 

Watch Wedding Videos

Watch examples of wedding videos to check the shooting style, and lighting conditions; do they film both inside and outside? Are the transitions between scenes smooth and does the music help the wedding video bear emotional resonance for the viewer? Whilst you will be initially watching to see how it makes you feel, the technical aspects are highly important. These make the difference between watching a video made by a professional film maker to one shot on your Uncle’s smart phone! Many wedding videographers work individually, but with Trapdoor Films you have at least two people capturing the day. In doing so, this ensures that the best angles are captured and no detail missed.

Trapdoor Films’ wedding videos are of high-definition on ultra-wide cinematic widescreen. This gives the films a dramatic sense of occasion that this life-changing event merits. The care taken in post-production makes so much more than just a montage of clips with music tacked on; it creates a beautiful and authentic record of the day. You don’t have to worry about copyright on the background music that you choose for your wedding video; Trapdoor Films have all the licences that you would require for this.

 

It's About Communication

Entrusting such an important aspect of your wedding to a video production company is a big deal. Make sure that you have a connection with your cinematographer and that they are as passionate and dedicated to interpreting your vision and making an amazing film as you are. Your wedding videographer should keep dialogue open from the first enquiry, take on board your requirements, but also demonstrate their expertise by making suggestions and offering ideas. Whilst a rapport is needed, on the day they should be as unobtrusive as possible so as to not distract guests from you!

Planning a wedding can be expensive – achieving value for money will help you from going over budget. Trapdoor Films have packages to meet your requirements. For example, you may not want footage of you getting ready, but see the first dance as an important symbol of your union. You can select the package to suit. They also travel globally to capture weddings, so whether you are getting married in Essex where they are based, London or further afield, even abroad, you are guaranteed wedding videography of the highest quality from calibre film producers at value for money.
