How many candles did the guest of honor blow out? What did the icing and the decorations on the cake look like? How was the venue decorated? Who showed up to the party to share in your happiness? What presents did they bring? What was the entertainment at the party? And the food? Most importantly, how did the event make you feel?
These are some of the questions that we want to recollect and reflect upon when we look back at our old birthday celebration videos. And that is one of the reasons why choosing the right team to film your celebratory event can make the difference.
You can bet that half the guests in the room will all whip out their smartphones and start recording or even live streaming the event to their social media accounts. But there is far more to capturing an event on film than pointing a lens and clicking the “record” button.
What makes the difference between an amateur video versus a professional grade video production is exemplified the degree to which you plan ahead, anticipate what is coming, pay attention to detail, and you have a clear vision for how you want the final product to look. Will you need to edit the video? Do you need to address any lighting issues or any audio issues? Do you know who’s who and what’s what at the event? How adept is the person operating the camera and filming the right object, at the right moment, at the right camera angle, erstwhile employing filmography techniques such as zoom, focus, and panning? There is also a clear difference between phone camera quality versus commercial grade camera quality.
