Every day while going on the internet, I see more and more wedding video production companies claiming that they are filming weddings. Nobody, I said nobody does wedding videos in film. Everything is done and recorded in digital on video cards, not 8, not super 8, not 35, or 70 mm films are ever used to shoot wedding videos in this day and age. The ones that claim they do are lying just to jack up their price because it sounds more professional. For the sake of argument,lets say that somebody decided to really shoot a wedding video in 70mm film. It would probably cost 250,000.00 just to film the wedding. The other thing that these sleazy video production operators claim is that they are cinematographers. I think the ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) would have something to say to these wannabes and thieves. If you have any questions for the Cleveland area, contact the Cleveland Film Commission. They run the Cleveland Film Festival and they would certainly know if any Cleveland wedding videographers are shooting in film. Trust me, they're not. Brides and grooms are constantly being ripped off by these fraudulent wedding video production companies that are claiming to shoot film. It's high time that someone speaks out about this nonsense. A professional wedding video company should charge between $700 and $1200 for a full day wedding and reception video. Make sure you see some of their work. I would also be leary of anyone who charges under $500 to shoot a wedding video. You would be better off getting a cheap video camera from Best Buy and having a friend or family member shoot your video. If you have any questions, please call J&J Video Productions at 440-845-2122.
