Pie in the Sky is committed to providing event videos that embody the atmosphere of your day, polished off with a spectacularly cinematic finish. We are passionate about capturing the essence of your big day, creating a time capsule-like collection of memories that will immediately take you back.
Our event videos tell the story of this big day and are beautiful to look at. We focus on storytelling through quaint imagery and fine composition of video to organically capture the happenings of the day. We are careful to remain true to your preferences, while making sure that filming is efficiently and tastefully done.
At Pie in the Sky, we understand that this is your day and not a production, therefore we make sure that throughout the day we will blend in with the guests and, while our camera gear is no bigger than that of a photographer, we are able to achieve timeless, modern and breathtaking cinematic results.
Once we have filmed your event, we combine our commitment to quality and creativity with years of experience in editing the footage into a beautiful film of this day. We add music, color correction, graphics and more, thus creating an event video that will bring you joy and will safeguard your forever memories for the rest of your lives.
Why not view some of our highlights films to get a feel for what we’re about?
When planning your event videography schedule, it is important to consider a couple of things. Here are some tips to make your special day run smoothly.
Sound & Mic: Consider a podium during speeches. This will free up hands during speeches, allowing guests to read from notes, use hand gestures to embellish their stories or just be able to lift their own glass of champagne during toasts. Capturing the best sound is crucial for the video. Please remember that all the sound captured with the camera’s on-board mic is more for reference then actual usage. Big halls and some open-air events cause echoes or wind distortion which is unfortunately not very nice to listen to. Therefor Pie in the Sky captures all the sound using professional sound recording devices that are connected to the venue or DJ’s system used on the day. Having your event without a sound system will leave us with on-board sound only, something that is not fixable if recorded badly.
Filming in bad light: Remember the following when deciding on the venue. Light plays a very important role in the filming of any event. If you have a dark and cozy looking venue, then it might cause the footage to have a grainy feel to it. This does not display the same as the footage filmed outside during sunlight. We have to adjust our cameras to be able to film in low light, which results in a less desirable end product. Pie in the Sky takes no responsibility in the quality of the final production if the light was bad.
Photo Booths: Pie in the Sky Photo Booths work best either during pre-drinks or after speeches. Please plan your space for the booth. An outside booth runs the risk of bad weather, strong winds or sharp sunlight. They work best inside! Please provide us with a space of 3 x 4 meters and 2.5 meters high.
Travelling: Remember that travelling causes delay and delays lead to extra hours which are billed for separately. If you choose not to extend the hours of the cameraman, photographer, DJ or photo booth operator, you risk missing some of the special moments. Plan your day with travelling included.
DJ & Sound: The power supply of most venues is correctly earthed but, in some cases, they are not. This causes a light hum or buzz over the PA system and is also then sent to our recording devices. Please ask about this as it will hinder the guests and final video production.
1 Cameraman or 2? For the best results, the “2 Cameraman” option is the best but if you are on a tight budget and having to go for the “1 Cameraman” option please keep in mind that you can only capture one angle at a time cause the cameraman is having to move around. Remember, allow some time for them to get into position. Shaky camera work is sometimes unavoidable and is also very hard to edit. Please decide on what you want captured and then decide either between 1 cameraman or 2.
