What types of event do you film?
Mainly parties and weddings, but
also done hen parties, christenings, bar and bat
mitzvahs, civil partnerships and corporate
How far in advance can I make a booking?
We do not take bookings more than 7
months before the event date. If your event is longer
away than that, you’re welcome to get in touch, but we
won’t go firm on a booking til nearer the date for the
simple reason that we don’t always know where we’ll be
in a year’s time.
Do you film anywhere in the UK?
Do you film outside the UK?
Yes, we’ve done videos for clients
all over Europe, Asia and the Americas. We love filming
in all kinds of cultures and surroundings and have found
that the appeal of a lip-synched music video is
If I’m using a party/wedding planner,
should I book through them or direct with you?
Most of our clients deal directly
with us but we’re also happy to work with your party
planner (and can recommend some very good ones if you’re
Can I phone you to discuss a booking?
We ask that you email us first,
because most days we are busy working with clients and
it’s not good to have our phones going off in the middle
of a job! Of course, after that we can speak by
How much does a video cost?
It depends on the type of event, the
number of guests, whether it’s on a weekday or weekend,
the location etc … The ballpark figures for 2019 are:
£1,500 for a party (21st, 50th etc) and £2,500 for a
wedding. Shorter, weekday evening events are less
expensive. Longer events over several days, or events
taking place abroad are more.
Are there any extra costs?
Travel and accommodation (if
required) are extras. We charge train tickets, air fares
and taxis at cost. As far as accommodation is concerned,
we will usually try to get back to London after an
event, but sometimes need to stay in a local hotel or,
if you have any spare room, with you or your
Is there VAT on top?
No, we are below the VAT threshold
so do not have to charge you VAT.
What are the payment terms?
We ask for a 25% deposit on booking
and for the balance to be paid within 7 days of the film
being delivered to you.
How do I pay?
The best way is bank transfer, but
you can also pay by cheque. We will provide both an
invoice and a receipt for payments.
Who chooses the song?
You do. But if you’re not sure, we
can make suggestions. It’s important to choose a song
which guests know, and which has clear, simple
How many songs will be on my video?
Usually one song which is
lip-synched (i.e. guests miming the words) and one which
is background music to film footage. For longer videos,
there will be additional background music.
How long do you stay?
For as long as it takes to capture
the footage. For parties, this usually means we arrive
an hour before the start and finish at midnight. For
weddings we arrive in time for the ushers’ lunch and
leave at midnight. But if we need to stay longer, we
will, and there’s no extra charge.
Do you bring special lighting or camera
We bring our small handheld cameras
with lights attached. They work off their own batteries,
so there are no messy wires or wobbly lights.
Do all guests have to be in the video?
No, if a guest doesn’t want to be in
it, then we don’t film them. We’re tactful and not
over-pushy. In practice, most guests enjoy the process
and love the result.
If you’re filming a wedding, do you film
the ceremony inside the church?
If the church gives permission,
we’ll take a long shot of the bride and groom at the
altar, and capture them coming down the aisle, but we
don’t usually film the whole ceremony. Remember that our
videos have a music soundtrack, so the audio of the
bride and groom taking their vows won’t be on it.
Do you film speeches?
Yes, we always film speeches and put
them on a separate video, unedited.
How long does it take you to edit a video?
We usually have the video ready
within 2 or 3 days of the event, sometimes sooner.
Can I ask for changes to the video?
Yes, and we will do our best to
accommodate them. As every line of the song has to have
a matching piece of footage, and each line has only been
spoken by only one person, it’s difficult to take
someone out and replace them with someone else!
Do you edit footage filmed by other people?
Not normally, because so much of
what we do is about being at the party/wedding and
editing while the memories are fresh. It’s more
difficult and takes longer to edit other people’s
Having said that we do <em>sometimes</em> take on
projects in which family and friends send in iPhone
clips or still images, for editing into a video. If this
is the kind of thing you want, please contact us to
How long is the finished video?
It depends on the event, but usually
between 6 and 20 minutes for the main video, with
speeches supplied as a second video. For longer events,
the video may be up to 30 minutes.
How do you send the video to me?
We email you a link to the finished
film on our website, and we post you a boxed USB stick
with the film on it.
Can I download the video from your
Yes, we can send you a special link
which allows you to download it direct to your
Are you insured?
Yes, we have public liability
