Nikhil & Priya
Client: We love your wedding films and would love for you to capture our wedding.
FilmAM: Thanks for the kind words, when are your events?
Client: We are having our wedding in the first week of November, are you free?
FilmAM: Let us check, yes that should be fine.
Client: Oh great, do you do overseas weddings?
FilmAM: Yes definitely!
Client: OK great, it’s in a Palace in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
FilmAM: Wow that sounds great!
Client: We want you to come out for a week, we’ll sort out the flights etc and we definitely want you to stay in the Palace with us. What do you think?
FilmAM: We’ve had worse requests! I’m sure we can work something out!!!
And so it started, an epic journey that eventually took three of our musketeers Tom, Dan & Tim half way around the world to Rajasthan to film the awesome wedding of Nikhil & Priya.
Just ask any of clients and they will tell you how obsessed we are about planning! Each client is assigned a producer and that producer will not only meet our clients a couple of months before the wedding to do location recce’s but also spend a lot of time finding out what that client likes and how they want their final film to look like.
Nikhil & Priya wanted EPIC! And so we started to produce mood boards and look for inspiration through film, documentaries, photos, skate videos and basically anything we could look to that got us excited.
We sat down with Nikhil & Priya and found out which of our films they loved the most and the reasons why. We wanted to produce a feature film which flowed throughout which stared with setting the scene in India through timelapses, establishing shots and observational filmmaking of Rajasthan and the fascinating people who lived there. The film would then move into the ancient Hindu rituals followed during their pre wedding events and the wedding itself.
It culminated with the reception and with guest testimonials allowing everyone to talk about what had meant the most to them during their time at the wedding in India. We had also planned film shoot’s to act as mood pieces throughout the various parts of the film and made sure we had transitional shots to link all of the relevant sections together.
We hope you enjoy this EPIC short film from our time in the magical land of Rajasthan.
