Q&A - Directors Edge

Q&A


A conversation with your cinematographer, Glen Mackay, answering all those frequent (and infrequently) asked questions...
 

How much do you charge for wedding films?
Our base price starts at $2450 which includes the coverage of your wedding day. We have an a la carte menu where you can build your own package. Email us for a price guide.

How many hours are included in your packages?
Our collections aren’t hour dependent. That gets too confusing if your speeches are running late and it’s awkward to talk about extra charges on the wedding night. Simply put, coverage includes both preparations through to reception formalities (speeches/cake/first dance). Coverage will generally conclude after some kicker dance moves have been captured. Want coverage till the end? We’ve got that option covered.

What secures our wedding date? Can we tentatively lock you in?
A non refundable booking fee of 30% alongside your signature on our terms and conditions locks in your date. Sorry but we don’t accept pencil bookings. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Are payment plans available?
Yep. Sure are. Lets have a chat and see what suits you best.

Can we meet with you in person? Ploise?
Absolutely! Book in a time here. Skype, Facetime and phone chats can also be organised if you’re interstate, overseas or work crazy hours.

Who chooses the music for our film?
That would be me. I choose music based on the narrative I’m constructing for your film – a unique score that compliments your celebration and vibe of your special day. Music is such an integral part of what I do as a storyteller.

Every song is properly licensed and I can guarantee it won’t date like John Legends ‘All of me’ or ‘From this moment on’ by Shania Twain. And none of your friends will have the same song for their wedding film – your film is as unique as you are.

Do you travel?
Yes please. Whilst I call the Yarra Valley home, I’ve been fortunate to capture stories near and far across regional Victoria (Echuca/Moama, Bendigo, Mornington, Geelong, Phillip Island) and interstate.

My passport is ready and awaiting for international travels too (I spent 4 months capturing weddings in America in 2016 so I know how to pack well and clear customs without any issues).

We need a photographer too! Do you offer that as well?
You’ll likely find in your quest that some photographers offer video services as a ‘side’, and not main course. We prefer to focus on only what we’re actually good at… wedding films. But we know people… awesome people.

It’s important to choose a photographer that compliments your cinematographer – and vice versa. Check out our friends page for our recommended suppliers. Chat with us too regarding joint offerings.

How long after our wedding day until we get our film?
We respect our craft far more than simply whacking together a corny teaser without any structure. Because I only take on a limited number of jobs per wedding season, it’s important for me to make sure I deliver the very best films possible… and that takes time. Our turnaround time is generally within 10 weeks (seasonal depending).
