Cinematic Wedding Videos Throughout Scotland And The UK
Glasgow wedding videos, Edinburgh wedding videos, Aberdeen wedding videos, London wedding videos…!
At White Balloon Films, my husband and I take tremendous pride in producing genuinely cinematic wedding videos of your special day. At the start of 2013 we expanded our existing boutique production company, Alina P, into Scottish wedding videography and by the end of the year, had firmly established ourselves as one of Scotland’s leading wedding videography teams. Please feel free to take a look and see what some of our couples past and future have to say about us on the Scottish Wedding Directory Forum, Facebook and Google+. Writing now in January 2014, we are almost fully booked for 2014 and 2015 is edging closer by the day. Based in Glasgow, we operate throughout Scotland and further afield. In 2013 we filmed wedding videos in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London and the Lake District to name but a few.
White Balloon Films is quite unique in that we always film your day as a 2-person, 3-camera team with me, Alina, and my husband Stewart as operators. This gives us an unrivalled ability to capture your day from a multitude of view points and then edit together a genuinely cinematic account of your day, cutting back and forth between angles as you are accustomed to seeing when you watch a movie, only this time, you are the star of the show. With two of us overseeing filming, we are able to produce the highest quality of footage for every second of your ceremony, speeches, first dance etc.
Increasingly, solo wedding videographers are deploying a second or even third camera to achieve a more cinematic effect. Whilst this is a major step forward from the bad old days of ‘You’ve Been Framed’ style wedding videos, an unmanned camera on a tripod at the back of the church does not compare with the results that can be achieved with second videographer. Furthermore, as a husband and wife team, living and breathing wedding videography, we have refined our 2-operator, 3-camera approach to such an extent that we literally function as one, always mindful of what the other is doing and always looking for the highest quality way of capturing the story of your day on video.
However, filming your day is just the first step in producing an engaging account of your day on video that you will want to watch again and again. As a graduate of ‘Film and Animation’ at The University of the Arts in London, I gained proficiency not only in filming but also in the absolutely crucial post-production elements such as editing and colour-grading. It is often observed that our work has a stylish and contemporary feel to it, as exemplified by our highlights videos. We like to have a thread of creativity running through our films and this concerns not only the way we use our cameras on the day but also the nature and vision behind the editing and colour-grading of the footage. Every single frame of footage that makes the final edit is colour-graded by a suite of incredibly powerful software akin to Photoshop, only for video, and it is this final piece of the puzzle that gives our White Balloon Films wedding videos a certain ‘look’.
