Awaken Presents Wedding 101 in 8mm!

Just a few weeks ago Al, with Awaken, came by the studio to meet with brides and while he was there he shot this amazing film. The video is shot in 8mm style. Many of you may be too young to remember 8mm film so here is a little background:

The standard 8 mm (also known as regular 8) motion picture film format that was developed by the Eastman Kodak company during the Great Depression and released on the market in 1932 to create a home movie format that was less expensive than 16 mm. 8 mm film is a film format in which the filmstrip is eight millimeters wide. It exists in two main versions: the original standard 8mm film, also known as regular 8 mm or Double 8 mm, and Super 8. Although both standard 8 mm and Super 8 are 8 mm wide, Super 8 has a larger image area because of its smaller perforations.


This style of shooting adds that vintage feel to your wedding videography. Incorporating shots like this with other creative shots, angles, and styles will help make your wedding video truly unique.
