Do you offer photography?
We are 100% focused on wedding cinematography, as we want your films to be the best they can possibly be. This is why we are happy to leave the photography to the photographers and the videography to the videographers!
Do you do destination weddings?
Yes definitely! Although we are primarily a Cypriot wedding cinematography business, we would love to do more weddings abroad providing we are available and the logistics are not too difficult to get to the destination. There are additional expenses involved so please contact us to enquire about rates for overseas arrangements.
How much is the booking fee? When do I pay the remaining balance?
As soon as you decide that you would like to book with us, we require a €400 booking fee to secure your date. The booking fee guarantees that we will not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for your reserved date. In the event of cancellation by the couple, the booking fee is non-refundable in order to offset loss of business. The remaining balance must be paid in full on the delivery date or if the couple desire to settle the amount 2 days after the wedding.
What are the methods of payment?
We accept various forms of payment including cash, cheque, bank transfer, Revolut™ and PayPal™.
Do you film multiple weddings/events in a day?
We only ever accept one booking per day so that we can capture as much as we can to create the best film available. In fact, as we do not outsource any of the filming or editing we only take on a limited number of weddings per year, in order to give the time needed to produce every single wedding film, and to ensure the high standard you expect.
Will you personally be the one shooting our day? How many cinematographers should we expect on the day?
We are a team, Andreas, Fanos and Kyriacos and we always shoot the day together.
Do we need to provide you with a meal?
It is a very long day of filming for us and we are constantly on the go, so we would very much appreciate you keeping us hydrated and fuelling our energy levels with a meal so that we can continue filming your wedding celebrations late into the night!
Will you be obtrusive?
Our goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day as it naturally unfolds and we understand the importance of making you and your guests feel comfortable. In fact, we find that our best footage is captured when people don’t realise that they are being filmed so we strive to remain as unobtrusive as possible. That being said, there are moments during the day where we do need to get in close enough to capture the footage we need to produce your cinematic edit.
How do you dress?
Whether it is a formal or informal ceremony, we always work in appropriate clothing. However, at the dinner we wear formal suit. We try to wear smart dark clothing for indoor ceremonies and lighter clothing for outdoor summer ceremonies so that if one of us is in the frame we tend to blend into the background and become unnoticeable in the shot.
What hours of coverage will we get?
We are not really restricted by times or the number of hours we offer. We usually start filming when the bride starts her hair & makeup, or in some circumstances we start with the groom’s preparations first. We usually call it a wrap once we have captured a good chunk of the party/disco at the end and we feel we have all the material we need to create a great film for you (approximately 01:00).
Can we meet beforehand to discuss the details of the day?
If you feel more comfortable meeting in person before the big day to discuss your exact requirements and the details of your wedding, we are happy to do so where distance allows. However, as we do not outsource the editing and with each edit taking 60+ hours we can only afford the time for one meeting per wedding couple. Often though it is more convenient to have FaceTime™ or Skype™ meetings, which can be arranged as many times as you like!
Do you offer discounts?
The honest answer is NO. Our work continues on long after your wedding day is over. Beyond the many hours filmed on-location, it is not unusual for us to spend 60+ hours editing each wedding film. We pay close attention to the details; we focus on creativity; and make sure that there is always consistent high quality. As a result of the huge amount of time needed to produce each wedding film to such a standard, we can only take on a limited number of weddings every year.
Can we choose the music?
Due to licensing restrictions on a lot of mainstream music we only use music which we are able to obtain the license for. Although we encourage you to make suggestions of songs you like so that we can get an idea of your music tastes and the kind of personality you are hoping for your film to have. The final choice for the licensed music used in the highlights film will be ours. From our editing experience, we know what pieces of music work best with films. The song choice plays such an important role in emotive storytelling – it is what will make your guests cry and laugh when they watch your film! However, if there are particular songs that you absolutely love or have some meaning to you, then we will definitely try to incorporate them into the long film for you.
Can we give you our input during the editing process & review drafts?
No doubt you have chosen us to capture your big day because you like what you have seen in our portfolio of work. Like any artist, we like you to see the perfectly finished piece for the first time and thoroughly enjoy it! The editing process is an already lengthy and complex process, so we cannot present you with any drafts to review before the final versions of your films. Only necessary changes or modifications can be made only on premiere day. Any further changes/revisions will be charged.
Do we get unlimited re-edit of our films if we want changes?
You have seen our work and you like our style so have an idea of what we will produce. We encourage your input before the editing process begins in the form of a questionnaire, which we ask you to complete for us. The editing process takes 60+ hours and is not always simple. The re-edit process would cost us a lot of time and money and as a result we do not allow re-edits of your films. However, if a name is misspelled or there is a noticeable problem then we will make an exception to fix that issue. We hope you understand.
Can we keep our films private?
We are happy to keep your “featured” and “highlight” film private. Are our only form of advertising. So if you really want to keep your wedding film private, please inform us before paying your booking fee so that we can consider your booking. As the highlights films are only form of advertising there will be extra charge due to privacy commitment.
Can we get the raw footage of our wedding?
We supply the RAW footage only on All-In-One package. You can have all the RAW footage on other packages with extra cost.
How long do we have to wait to receive our films?
We spend the time carefully crafting your wedding film to ensure we create the best wedding film possible. Although we don’t rush our edits, our completion times are still much quicker than industry averages. We aim to complete your wedding film within 2 months and 4 months respectively. Sometimes we manage to get them to you even sooner. We try our utmost to meet these deadlines but if we fall a little outside of these completion times, we ask for your patience but assure you that it will always be worth the wait!
Can I order extra copies of my wedding USB?
Included in your final package is a USB flash drive, containing both your highlights and full length films, beautifully presented in our own branded box. You can use the USB flash drive not only to watch your special day in High Definition but also to make as many additional copies for family and friends as you wish. However, if you would like extra USB flash drives in our presentation box perhaps to give as gifts to relatives, you can order them from us for €100 each.
How long will our wedding footage be kept?
Once you have received your final copies we will keep the raw footage for 6 months after which time it will be deleted to free up much needed storage space. We will endeavour to archive copies of your final films for at least one year in case you wish to order more copies in the future. However, we are not responsible for the safe keeping of your final films, so please be sure to make multiple copies of your films as soon as you receive your USB!
