Film Info & FAQs - The White Tree

THIS PAGE INCLUDES IMPORTANT BOOKING INFO AND FAQs ABOUT THE WHITE TREE FILM. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THE INFORMATION BELOW. IT WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND THE PLANNING, SHOOTING AND EDITING PROCESS, AND TO CHOOSE WHICH LEVEL WILL SUIT YOU.

So what do we actually receive as part of our packages?

Whether you book us for Level 1, 2 or 3, you always receive 3 x edits: The Cinematic Show Reel, a short Instagram Edit and The Raw Edit. The Show Reel is essentially a highlights reel, rightly edited to a soundtrack of your choice. It’s like a modern music film clip. The length varies slightly depending on which level you book. ┬áThe Instagram is a short snippet of the Show Reel.

The Raw Edit is essentially all the raw footage we capture throughout the shoot. It includes your ceremony in full, behind the scenes moments and all of your reception speeches (if your chosen Level covers this stage of the day). It mixes natural audio and a soundtrack of your choice. The Raw Edit is rougher in appearance than the Cinematic Show Reel but it ensures you have a comprehensive documentation of the day.

What Film Level should we book? 1, 2 or 3?

Obviously we are not to know a couple’s budget, so we can’t advise you in that area! But in terms of the offerings, the Levels are largely determined by the coverage and length of edits. So, if you’re not interested in having any of the reception covered, then Level 1 would be fine. But if you want your bridal dance and speeches covered, or right up to the final reception farewells captured, then you should go for level 2 or 3.
