These days there are very few feature films or television program that don't contain some visual effects. Even things that you don't expect to contain visual effects, like romantic comedies, do contain them. They contain what is known in the industry as "invisible visual effects". These are effects that the audience doesn't realise are effects, as apposed to obvious visual effects like a giant dinosaur. Invisible effects are things like replacing a sky with a more interesting sky or replacing a green screen to make it look like an actor is outside rather than in a studio. I know this because for over ten years I have been a visual effects editor, working on feature films including Prince of Persia, Skyfall and Edge of Tomorrow.
When I work on wedding films for Silver Sixpence Films I approach them in the same way I do a feature film, and this includes using visual effects where I feel they can make something more cinematic.
In the past I have enhanced shots in our wedding films by replacing the sky when it has been very cloudy, I have removed cars and unsightly objects from the backgrounds of shots when they distract from the bride and groom, I have even removed photographers from shots when they spoil the composition, made it look like a groom is fantastic at playing pool, and added many more invisible effects to improve our films. You can see some of the recent visual effects we have done in our reel below and it's another example of the time and effort we go to to make sure that our wedding films are as beautiful and cinematic as possible. We are quite possibly the only wedding film company in the world that can offer this as part of our service which is all thanks to our feature film experience.
