Many people aren’t sure what it is that videographers do. Are they the people who work on big-budget Hollywood movies?
No, those are cinematographers that specialize in filming movies according to the director and producer’s vision for the film..
A videographer, on the other hand, also tells stories using moving images. But these stories tend to be a lot more personal and immediate.
What We Film
Unlike a cinematographer, who would film a fictional or documentary story according to a script or game plan, a videographer typically focuses on smaller productions, such as making videos of weddings, graduations, birthdays, and other special events.
Videographers also sometimes make promotional films, commercials, and even training videos for their clients. While there is still a certain amount of artistry involved, videographers are generally more focused on the commerce part of the creative process.
At Hawaii Video Pro, we have many different types of clients, including colleges and universities, private businesses, couples getting married, and many more.
We make films that usually aren’t given a broad audience, but are usually very important meaningful to the people they are aimed at.
Today, a lot of videography is done for online viewing. Streaming video is an important part of most businesses today that promote their products and services online, especially through social media.
But at Hawaii Video Pro, we also work with documentary filmmakers, historians, and others.
Day to Day Videography
While the films we make can sometimes be very exciting, they can also be very normal. We will frequently film corporate meetings, training sessions, or other events that don’t have a broad audience but are important to the people who commission them.
Videography is a growing field and more and more individuals and businesses understand the importance and benefit of film.
