When you decide that you're getting married and start the process of seeking suppliers, usually at the top of the list is a photographer and videographer. If you've been to a friend's wedding, then you'll want to see how their photos and video turn out. You'll also see how that photographer and videographer work on the day. Almost every videographer will shoot in digital format, and that's cool, check out some of my digital stuff at GMTMT Films. But for the more creative couple, or if you're a couple who don't like the in-your-face type of video that 4K resolution provides, then a Super 8 wedding film may be your ticket to wedded video heaven!
This lovely format, that we call Super 8mm, is so beautiful in its own way, that the finer details are not required. Is it blurry? Well by today's standards it may seem to be blurry or fuzzy, but in fact it's just the grain of the film, or the type of camera used to capture your wedding. I have several cameras; all are unique, and I use each one for a specific purpose. Some are better in low light but lose a little sharpness. It's a trade-off. Some are sharper but not as good in low light conditions. It's a trade-off.
Do you research before jumping in. Decide what your preference is, and don't base your preference on price! Once you compare the various kinds of wedding videography, go with the one that moves you more. Go with the one that you gravitate towards most. Doing that means you'll have no regrets when your day arrives. A Super 8mm wedding video isn't for everyone, but the couples who book with me are some of the most talented and creative couples I've met. Super 8 wedding films are on trend, and that trend was set by The Super 8's!
