Bruce has been filming weddings since 2004 and editing both his own and other videographers’ footage. We use 2 x cameras for all weddings. The main camera is for both fixed and mobile shots to capture the intimate scenes of the ceremony. The second camera is set in a fixed position and usually will be set at wide angle. The scenes of Preparations, Still Photography and other activities of the day are filmed in a “fly on the wall” fashion. We feel that being as unobtrusive as possible is the key to an accurate record of your day. Our intention is to create a natural, classic and candid approach to your wedding day. However we are not fixated on our own techniques for filming and editing, we are happy to work in any style to suit your wishes.
If at all possible we use natural light, during the day, as it produces the best images. A camera light maybe used at the reception to provide a soft filtered light. This prevents images from becoming grainy and is used only where absolutely necessary.
We use 3 chip professional High Definition Cameras, and FINAL CUT PRO STUDIO as our editing suite.
Bruce is also an experienced tutor for Final Cut Pro and has been teaching the software since 2005, and has been using Final Cut Pro for professional editing since 2002.
