We are fortunate enough to have some of the most talented event film making individuals in the country, possibly Europe as part of our team, which is reflected in our prices. Our team comprises of Multi Award Winning cameramen, sound engineers, Steadicam operators, crane operators and industry educators. We can provide a crew of up to 4 operators to cover your event(s)
Included in every package is up to 12 hours coverage. We believe this is adequate for most Weddings and events, however, should you require our crew to work longer there are overtime rates applies, see here for details
Having been in the industry for over 10 years now, we nurtured our skills and mastered our craft of Event Filmmaking, so much so, we are now industry educators and run our own training and workshop business to help newcomers to the industry.
The Wedding and event filming industry has undergone sweeping change in the last 5 years, with the advent of the video recording ability of the DSLR. We were one of the first companies in the UK to embrace that change, so much so, Canon asked us to front a seminar on the new technology in January 2010.
We now truly offer cinematography as opposed to videography, where thought and attention is put into every shot, making for a more fulfilling experience for every viewer. The emphasis is of course on the story telling of your big day, which can be enhanced by our industry leading techniques and state of the art kit. Booking with Engage Cinema is a guarantee of not only an exceptional record of your day, but an overall first class experience from the first consultation through to the London Premiere of your Film
We can film interviews of close family members and friends throughout the day, depending on timings. It is a lovely way to capture the emotions and feelings of the day, not only for you to look back on, but for generations to come.
The interviews are conductd in a very informal manner, there is no staring into the camera, its just like having a conversation with the cameraman, with a camera running in the background.
This is a fun way for your guests to give their thoughts and well wishes for the couple and families, usually conducted during cocktail hour, when some champagne had whet the lips!
We are accustomed to traveling the world filming events and have notched up quite a few continents now. There is a lot of logistics that goes into filming a destination Wedding and as such this has to be reflected in the price. There are many companies out there willing to film in foreign lands for next to nothing, but beware of getting sub standard footage as a result. If I was given a penny for every time I was asked to rectify a ‘cheap’ decision on a destination Wedding filming, I would have heavy pockets!
Our 22ft crane/jib is an amazing tool for getting continuous smooth, floating in the air type footage of both ceremonies and performances/dancing. It is quite an exclusive piece of kit and requires a 20 minute set up and breakdown time, so needs to have a bit of thought given as to where and when it can be used.
Our Asian Weddings usually book this piece of kit, as the dancing part of the day is an important aspect of the whole film.
It requires great skill to operate the crane and our experienced crew have crafted shots worthy of a place in Hollywood/Bollywood films.
The Quadcopter is the latest edition to the Engage Cinema kit bag. This marvellous device flies high in the sky and is ideal for capturing breathtaking imagery of the Wedding venues and b-roll of the surrounding area/city/country.
We used this for the first time in this wedding, shot at the beautiful hotel – Dhara Devi
