Woody Storytelling - FAQ
Hong Kong Wedding Videography | Wedding Cinematographer | Wedding Photography | Concept Video | 婚禮攝錄 | 婚禮攝影
Q: What's your approach on the wedding day?
We strive to document the pretty details, the organic moments, and the quiet beauty of your wedding day.
We anticipate, feel the atmosphere, and let moments happen. You won't find us with huge lighting equipment, clumsy bags, or stands. We like to blend in and be un-obstructive.
Feel free to take a look of the interview conducted by bigcouple.hk, about Woody's storytelling : )
Q: What is your cinematography style?
Ethereal, artful, and journalistic.
Q: What kind of cameras do you use?
My collection of camera/lens ranged from pocket sized to my-head sized.
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
Of course! I bring at least two backups of everything from cameras, memory cards, to batteries.
Q: Do you shoot weddings alone?
Depending on the level of investment, I will always bring either an assistant or second cinematographer.
Q: If my event lasts longer than expected, will you stay? Is there an additional charge?
I will stay of course! We always ask if you'd like us to stay longer, especially if you have a grand exit planned . We charge our overtime rates on the night of the wedding and regular hourly rates if you decide for additional hours before the wedding date.
Q: How many footage do you shoot at a wedding, how many do we get to keep?
Each wedding varies and will depend on the level of investment, but we typically deliver 40 - 60 minutes of full day summary, edited & graded.
Q: When will our works be ready?
You’ll have the online gallery within 2-3 weeks (during a busy wedding season) and a USB/keepsake box within 4-5 weeks.
Q: How do you store our footage and for how long?
We have multiple backup external drives that guard your memories with their life. We’ll keep your footage on our hard drives for 3 months after the delivery. We suggest keeping a copy in a safety deposit box and backing up your files on another device immediately upon arrival. Remember, USBs and discs have a shelf life of 10 years until data becomes corrupted.
Q: Do we get the Copyrights?
Copyrights: We retain the copyrights to all the unedited footage and the edited films.
Q: How far in advance do I need to book you?
We recommend booking at least 6-12 months in advance. Our wedding season (autumn to spring) fills up quickly.
Q: Will you be posting about our wedding on your social media sites and submit to wedding magazines and blogs?
Yes, we will be posting our selected favorites on our Facebook and Vimeo accounts. Afterwards, we'll do a short post on our blog. We always ask for your permission and for a little blurb of your experience/highlights of you wedding day.
Q: Why do you respond slowly during week-end and week-day evening?
Most likely I was spending my time with my wife / 2 British shorts / 1-year-old daughter
