A wedding montage is a concise clipping of the entire event/ wedding edited to last anywhere between 5 to 8 mins with appropriate back ground music. These montages when shot in cinematography style – that is, using high end DSLR Cameras – display greater depth and perspective, giving the short film an ethereal effect.
They are not an alternative for Videography but mostly used alongside video cameras, for the flexibility they offer in terms of angles, perspectives and movement.
Being light on the hand the DSLR Cameras can be moved at will even with space constraints and produce high quality output that is a class apart.
Top end DSLR cameras are very expensive and the wear & tear factor very high, making cinematography an expensive proposition for most people.
Raghu Lakshminaarayanan has been a pioneer in promoting wedding montages shot in videography style. These montages are shot using high end video cameras – an effort experimented and perfected by PHOTOSTROPHE and soon followed by many.
The viewing content is creatively knit making the viewer feel a part of the proceedings. The short film is all about the more important and beautiful moments at the wedding, highlighting the candid and emotional aspects.
Montages can be only about the couple or could have the entire family and friends involved with nicely edited pre / post wedding interviews and asides, giving it a personal touch .
Given proper time and freedom to shoot team PHOTOSTROPHE with its immensely talented creative artists can churn out wonderful wedding montages like it has over the years, winning accolades and hearts from across the globe.
