Wedding FeatureS MUSIC VIDEOS

We edit your wedding into a film that family & friends REEAAAALLLY want to watch, gripping their seats and without the slightest inclination to fast forward, just perfect for sharing on social media. We're normally there filming from preparations to dancing (though we're also happy to customise if you want something a bit different). Your highlights film will be beautifully colour graded and styled for a cinematic feel.

do you provide extended footage too?

While we reckon our highlights movie is the bit friends will really want to watch, it breaks our hearts to have to edit out some of the other dazzling moments that we captured that oh-so-nearly made the cut. So we do offer an option where we edit around 20 minutes of footage into an Extended Edit. There is also an option of the key moments from the ceremony and the speeches in full.

A light touch

The best video is created by a mix of being unobtrusive, fast, and having fun. We capture shorter clips, beautifully timed and composed, full of moments and emotions, and edit into a creative pastiche that evokes the whole day. Capturing shorter clips allows us to blend in much more (for starters, we don't have to point the video camera at people for extended periods).

EQUIPPED WITH THE latest and THE best

We don't skimp when it comes to the equipment we use - we keep up with the very latest and use high end equipment. We actually film your wedding in 4K - Ultra High Definition video. We deliver it to you in High Definition, but we also offer the option of delivering the movie in 4K (which you may like especially if you have a 4K television).

How about the music?

The music that goes with the video is really important, it's part of our signature style, and we take a lot of care choosing great music. We believe in supporting musicians, and using emerging musicians rather than more established artists makes for a more personal and unique wedding video. When choosing the sound track to your video, we’ll take account of your music taste. There is a wealth of talent out there, and it is important to stay within the law and respect musicians' copyrights by paying a fee for usage of each track. We pay these fees out of our own pocket for the music used in your video.

P.S. - WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Why "Wild Call Films"? We spent many a happy summer (not to mention the odd chilly winter) sailing around the North Sea and the Baltic in a sailing boat with sweet lines called "Wild Call". The name Wild Call comes from the poem Sea Fever by John Masefield, which is all about why we're drawn to the sea:

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
 
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

WHEREABOUTS?
