Montage is a film making technique in which shots are juxtaposed in an often fast-paced fashion that compresses time and conveys a lot of information in a relatively short period. Traditionally a wedding video actually means a coverage. The photographer shoots the entire wedding sequence and gives it as a 2 - 3 hour long film. Honestly, no one today has the time and patience to watch such lengthy films these days. What we do is to condense the entire set of events within a 5 minute film in a cinematic style. We use professional cinematographers to get the shots and often edit it with a song or music which goes will with the film. These montages can go handy when one wants to share their wedding videos on the web and social network.
