What Is Raw Wedding Video?

What Is Raw Wedding Video?

What is Raw Wedding Video? In today's digital world, sharing content and media has become somewhat easier. When I first started shooting weddings, we delivered them on standard definition DVDs. There was a 2-hour maximum and that was that.  Now, between high speed internet, flash drives, and cloud storage sharing ALL the content is easy. The question is, do you really want it? So What is It? https://youtu.be/LquXvzU0W3U When talking photo or videos, the idea of "raw" images is pretty simple: it's the untouched, unprocessed images that we recorded images. The problem is, the shot you see in your wedding video, is the third take, or we were focusing while recording, or trying a shot to see if it will work. Or, something I do, you let the camera record long when you know something is about to happen. So there are 5 minutes of nothing, to capture an important 30 seconds. But I Want to See Everything I Missed! No, you don't. Trust me. What you're looking...

Stop Flashing Your Clients

Stop Flashing Your Clients

Stop Flashing Your Clients - Taking Better Cell Phone Photos We live in a visual era and growing your brand means that you have to document and create images of your goods and services. Thanks to technology, it's much easier to do. Whip out your phone and snap away. The problem is, we've moved on from the early days of the internet where a dark video or photo that's poorly lit is acceptable. Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn have raised the bar in how we share our lives. Sure, there are issues with presenting a fake lifestyle, but that's a post for another day. I want to focus on small business owners and the photos you're using to market your business. Nerd Speak The nerdy stuff - Light travels in a straight line. (Rectilinear Propagation)The only way to make light deviate is to put a dense object in its path. (Refraction)Because light travels in a straight line unless refracted, it will bounce off a reflective...

When Your Wedding Goes off Schedule

When Your Wedding Goes off Schedule

When Your Wedding Goes Off Schedule Putting together a wedding schedule takes military precision. From the time breakfast arrives, to coordinated transportation, to when the cake cutting happens. The problem is weddings are a day-long live event, which means something is bound to go wrong. This was the case with Carissa and Randy’s special day.  https://youtu.be/Iz_eqM8l_L0 Wedding Schedule Disaster Most weddings are usually running 10-15 minutes behind. Flowers were late, make-up took too long, someone took a wrong turn. It happens! If you have a great wedding planner they'll plan for little delays here and there. It's what they do.  Unfortunately for Carissa and Randy, they ended up being over an hour behind schedule! The original plan was for pictures and video of the bridesmaids getting ready and the first look to start at 11:30. We'd spend an hour shooting and then head to the ceremony at 12:30 and the bridesmaids' shuttle bus would leave at 12:45 for a 1pm ceremony.  It was 12:45 when I headed...

Summer 2019 Internship

Summer 2019 Internship

Summer 2019 Internship Park Multimedia is currently looking for a few summer interns. The internship will focus on content creation and brand marketing. If you're looking to get coffee and breeze through the summer, this one ain't for you! Our interns will work directly with us on our summer shoots and learn from first hand experience. And by learn, we do mean LEARN. You'll be working with a former professor who's taught everything from basic video production to social media management.  While this is an unpaid internship, you will have the chance to engage with local businesses and entrepreneurs. You'll also have artifacts for your portfolio when the summer is over.  The hours will vary as this a media based internship, so we'll work with your availability when scheduling.  Lastly, while we don't have a studio, we do work out of a co-working office space that we'll be meeting at when not out on shoots. The bulk of the work will be field related, but...

Cargill Solutions – Display Videos

Cargill Solutions – Display Videos

Cargill Solutions - Display Videos One of our recent video shoots took us to Hazleton, PA to work with Cargill Solutions. They were looking for a series of different display videos to run in-house for the employees. We met with them and figured out the best game plan for shooting and got ready. https://youtu.be/RDVTuXHjL-g The goal was to create three sets of display videos. First being overall welcome to the Hazleton facility. They had a visit from corporate coming up and wanted all levels of the staff involved in welcoming them. https://youtu.be/nfaxqyAJbWk The second was a series of correct/incorrect videos on differing things around the facility to reinforce procedures and rules. These were fairly simple and straight forward.  https://youtu.be/ESNC0fjHhjs Lastly were a set of safety welcome videos. These are a way to welcome employees in each day and stress certain areas of safety (chemical, electrical, forklifts, etc). Display Videos Overall the shoot was fairly simple and everyone was great. The edit took some finessing as each video needed subtitles...

Volunteers In Medicine – Event Photography

Annual Event Photography - Volunteers In Medicine Recently, we had the chance to work with the Volunteers in Medicine of Luzerne County and photograph their 2019 Annual Luncheon. We had a great time and got the chance to hear from some of the patients who'd VIM has helped. About Volunteers in Medicine VIM offers no cost health care to those with low to no income. It's a great organization and comes in handy for everyone. If you're lacking insurance and need some help, I'd highly suggest finding your local VIM. The annual meeting and luncheon was their way of giving acknowledgement to all the individuals and organizations that make the work the do possible. It was a really great event to cover. If you've got an event or party that you're looking to get photos of, shoot us a message!...

NEPA Wedding Videography – Meg and Nick

NEPA Wedding Videography – Meg and Nick

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFXnn9-t70U&t= NEPA can be a bit of a weird place to define. As a transplant, I still get confused as to 'where' I am in NEPA when you start to get into the smaller cities and communities. You can walk across the street in what seems like a neighborhood and actually be entering a whole other town. This is what makes NEPA Wedding Videography some what tricky. Because the towns are so close together, often I end up spending the day zig-zagging across counties getting from location to location. It's not a complaint, just a very weird adjustment! NEPA Wedding Videography Keeping this in mind, we turn to Meg and Nick's wedding day. Luckily there were two of us as we began the day in the Back Mountain and Wyoming. The guys had a blast getting ready. Literally. Luckily, only a beer can or two were harmed when the shotgun went off. The ceremony took place in the lovely St. Theresa's Church in...

Looking for a Vineyard Wedding – Gibson Wedding Highlight

Looking for a Vineyard Wedding – Gibson Wedding Highlight

https://youtu.be/2jI4Vc3z_Qw If you're looking for a vineyard wedding, you must see The Monterre Vineyards in the Lehigh Valley, which offers gorgeous views for wedding videography. It's an amazing venue that offers full services with lovely spots for the ceremony, a spacious reception venue, views to make even the most special day even more memorable. Shoshanna and Jonathan were a fun and adventurous couple and shooting their wedding was a great time.   Vineyard Wedding We can't say enough about Monterre Vineyards! The beautiful vines, amazing views, and great staff made shooting Shoshanna and Jonathan's day so easy. Monterre has a coordinated and focused staff and only does one wedding at a time, and even has it's own DJ set up. The couple had a fairly large (and fun) bridal party, which can sometimes be an issue, but with so much space to roam and rows of vines to shoot in, it was easy to be creative and get lost in the moment! Lehigh Valley...

Wedding Videography – Paupst Wedding

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ1pcjlZcu4&t= Jackie and Dave are great people and we had an amazing time doing their wedding videography! Wedding and ceremony took place at The Barn at Glistening Pond, which offers a unique setting and amazing views. Paupst Wedding Videography The day started off a little worrisome with the weather as it's been one of the rainiest summers of the last few years. We lucked out that whenever we popped outside, the rain would stop. About an hour before the ceremony the rain came to the end and the sun peaked out. As usual, we follow the photogs around and do our best to work with them. We were blessed to be with the Knot Just Any Other Day and able to capture some great video while they snapped away. As always, if you're looking for a wedding videographer in NEPA or the surrounding area, send us a note! We'd love to capture your special day! ...
