FAQ About Storyteller Co's Hybrid Wedding Cinema

What Makes Super 8 Wedding Films Special?

Super 8 & 16mm analog wedding videography offers a truly unique and nostalgic charm that digital formats often can't quite replicate. The grainy texture, soft colors, and vintage vibe of film evoke a sense of timeless romance that many couples find incredibly appealing for their wedding videos. It's not just about capturing moments; it's about crafting a cinematic experience that feels authentic, unique, and heartfelt. Choosing super 8 & 16mm film can add a touch of classic elegance to your wedding memories, creating captures that you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Can We Choose The Music In Our Film(s)?

Storyteller Co carefully considers the unique story, the energy of the wedding, the answers submitted in each client's pre-wedding questionnaires, as well as the general vibe of the celebrations when choosing the music for all films. However, if couples have particular song(s) they would like featured in their films, the duo will gladly take the lead in facilitating the licensing process required to make it happen - licensing fees applicable.

Is There Sound In Your Films?

Much of Storyteller Co's wedding cinema is captured using vintage film cameras, which produce silent film footage or select sound captures which may or may not be usable. However the duo's digital video captures do include professionally recorded audio, which when applicable is integrated into your film in an organic way. Videography packages also include all digital video files + audio (formatted for easy viewing) delivered on a solid state external hard-drive.

Along with any digital audio captured candidly throughout your day, Storyteller Co utilizes a paid library of extensive licensed music options for the highlight & teaser films they create.

Storyteller Co's wedding highlights do not feature vow or speech overlays, however full length digital ceremony & speeches videos (recorded with professional audio equipment) are included with all wedding video commissions.

Can Super 8 & 16mm Film Capture In Low Light Situations?

Absolutely! Storyteller Co assures clients that capturing film in low light is well within their expertise as professional wedding documenters. In such conditions, both Super 8mm and 16mm films benefit from additional lighting for optimal results. Storyteller Co employs external lighting sources, such as various professional video lights, and strategically utilizes well-lit areas of venues when necessary. The duo also makes use of a diverse range of Super 8 and 16mm film stocks, including those specifically designed for enhanced performance in capturing ambient light or low-light conditions. This meticulous approach ensures that clients receive beautifully illuminated captures of their precious wedding memories!

What Is Super 8mm Film?


Super 8mm film is a motion picture film format that was popularized in the 1960s and 1970s. Its a smaller format compared to the standard 8mm film, and offers higher image quality.


Super 8 film initially became a popular choice for capturing wedding videos due to its portability, ease of use, and aesthetic qualities. It has a distinct nostalgic and vintage look with its characteristic grain, vibrant colors, and occasional light leaks. These visual characteristics evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance, making it an especially appealing choice for capturing special moments like weddings.

 

What Is 16mm Film?


16mm cine-film is a motion picture film format that uses 16mm-wide film stock to capture images and create motion pictures. It has been widely used in the past for various professional filmmaking purposes, including movies, documentaries, newsreels, and more.


The allure of 16mm cine-film lies in its capacity to deliver superior image quality and versatility when compared to Super 8.


With its wider 16mm film gauge, 16mm film offers greater resolution, clarity, and detail, making it an attractive choice for a variety of filmmaking applications, particularly love celebrations and wedding captures. 16mm cine-film combines excellent image quality with the medium's unique texture and grain structure, creating a distinctly sharp, yet simultaneously dreamy, organic, and timeless aesthetic.

Your wedding is not about the captures.



The captures are about your wedding.

What Is Hybrid Wedding Videography?

Our hybrid Super 8/16mm film & digital wedding videography offers couples the opportunity to have their special day and memories captured in a way that feels both timeless and contemporary, combining the nostalgia of film with the convenience of digital technology. Creating a unique, memorable, and truly heirloom keepsake that can be cherished for generations to come. 


Here's how it typically works:


  • Super 8/16mm Film: Super 8 and 16mm film are analog formats known for their distinctive, nostalgic look, and archival capabilities. They offer rich colors, grainy texture, and a vintage aesthetic that our couples find truly helpful to elevate the emotion of their wedding celebrations with a timeless sense of romantic nostalgia.
  • Digital Videography: In addition to shooting on film, we also use a combination of DSLR & mirrorless digital cameras to capture high-quality footage. Digital captures allow us the benefit of immediate gratification and the ability to capture audio alongside video.
  • Integration: In our hybrid wedding films we capture all moments of the wedding day on a combination of analog and digital mediums, a documentary style of capture, and an intuitive eye for sentiment - capturing moments in a way that evokes memories of classic home movies, elevated with the significance and romantic nature of a wedding celebration. After the wedding events, the analog film is sent to our preferred lab for processing, developing, and scanning. The digital film scans and digital footage is then combined during the editing process. This integration allows for the best of both worlds: the timeless look of film combined with the convenience and versatility of digital technology. 
  • Editing and Post-Production: During editing, the footage is carefully selected and arranged to tell the story of the wedding day. All film scans and digital footage go through our carefully developed and hand-applied color correction process, ensuring cohesiveness and consistency between the film and digital footage.
  • Delivery: Once the editing process is complete, the final wedding video is delivered to the couple via digital delivery, external drive, final deliverables also include archival film negatives which can be used to scan the film to greater digital capacities in the future, viewed on a traditional projector, or simply stored away for forever safekeeping!
