Super 8 wedding films – a vintage look to remember
While some of you may think that you won’t make use of a wedding video, that the photos will be enough, after the wedding when you’re still loved up there’ll be nothing better than sitting down and going over your big day once again. And family and friends who couldn’t make it will also be glad to have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of your wedding.
However, if you don’t want a standard 3-hour wedding video, how about going a step further with your wedding film and finding a cinematographer who will film your day on a Super 8mm camera?
A growing trend in the US wedding industry in recent years, Super 8 wedding films are popping up all over the place and their grainy, retro look really gives your wedding a vintage feel.
Joel Serrato is just one video artist who uses his Super 8 skills to create a wedding work of art. Zk Magazine found him while surfing on wedding blog Once Wed and fell in love with his wedding films. Although based in California, Joel has been known to travel to weddings abroad, so you never know…
Over on our side of the pond, Reel Sixty aims to take cheese out and puts nostalgia into your wedding film (not video). Another UK-based cinematographer, Rachel Knights of I Do Films, also provides a Super 8 cine wedding service as well as traditional wedding videos. Filmed on a Super 8 camera, both companies will then convert your film to DVD format, so you can watch it over and over again.
