Famous Pinoy wedding photographer Jason Magbanua responded to a netizen who criticized same day edit wedding videos on social media.
KAMI learned about Jason’s response from PEP.ph.
According to the netizen, SDEs do not make sense because the people who attended the wedding have already seen the scenes shown in the video.
However, Jason responded that there is more to SDEs than showing what transpired during the special day and that there is an art and craft involved in making a good SDE.
Here are excerpts from the photographer’s posts:
“A bit of perspective. 15 years ago. Weddings were at the bottom rung of video prod...
“If you did events—dito ka sa side—upo ka.”
“The wedding videographer was the stereotypical manong in jeans and polo with a big camera and glaring light.
“No respect was accorded to wedding videographers. Not to the people. Not to the craft.
“Rightfully so because there was no artistry in weddings then. It had very low prod values, used cheap effects and were terribly long.
“It was always IKAW by Sharon Cuneta, or Silhouette by Kenny G. Basil Valdez. Enya…
“Remember the Wonder Woman shot? Linda Carter hindi Gail Gadot, besh. Iikot kung bride naka-robe, pag turn naka-gown na…
“Format was VHS. It was a two-hour-long format. Para masulit, two hours din ang wedding video.
“And last shot DO NOT DISTURB sign, naka-hang sa door ng hotel room. 'Yan ang mga tropes nun.”
“NOBODY KNEW WHAT A GREAT WEDDING VIDEO LOOKED LIKE…”
“These tapes were watched once and stowed away to collect dust or used on the 10th anniversary.”
“There was this bride, her name was Michelle, and she asked me if I could edit the preps and church footage and show it at the reception. So, the guests can watch something.
“I didn’t have a laptop then but I said yes anyway.”
“I took a cab back to Shang Makati where the reception was and play it back - BOOM - 800 collective jaws dropped.
“Puwede pala yun?!? Everybody was astounded. (kahit euro slow, Nearness of You - Norah Jones).”
“Bakit kailanangan panoorin ang isäng bagay na kakatapos pa lang mangyari? - DAHIL - kung magaling ang gagawa ng SDE, mabibigyan ang kasal ng isang creative interpretation galing sa videographer.
“An interpretation which will take the wedding film to a level beyond mere recording.
“Y am I triggered? Mahal ko industriya ko. Mahal ko ang ginagawa ko.”
