Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
Home-based business. We only work with 2 or 3 clients at any given time. This gives us ample time to discuss your wedding production more in-depth than any big company will ever do. The result does show in the quality of your wedding video.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
Unedited or raw footage is available as an add-on. Raw footage is provided in a set of DVDs instead of miniDV tapes; which may soon be obsolte. We use the renowned Magic Bullet Looks to accomplish a cinematic appeal.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
We offer both standard definition distributed in DVDs. AND the new High Definition format distributed in Blu-ray discs.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes. Professional lights with dimmers are used when necessary.
How many videographers do you work with?
It dependes on the package selected. We offer one-camera and two-camera packages. For the two-camera packages, there will be two camera operators.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
Yes. Actually, the video is edited by the same person that covers the event. We do NOT send your footage to other companies for editing.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Only one wedding per weekend. 3 events per month at most. We do not compromise the quality of our work.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes. We have two other camera operators in case of a real emergency.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We use the acclaimed Canon XH-A1 HDV camcorder. It is still ranked No 1 camcorder by CamcorderInfo.com. Movie-quality Lectrosonics wireless audio system.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Back-up equipment is a must. Yes, we bring back-up equipment to all events.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
For weddings, there is usually some free time between the ceremony and reception for a break. We do not require or ask for additional breaks.
Do you charge overtime?
Only if it was not specified in the contract. Going 15 or 20 minutes overtime is fine. A full additional hour would be charged extra.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Clients have the option to buy the entire RAW Footage at an additional fee. Check our website for updated pricing information.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes, unless clients buy our "Copyright ownership PLUS Raw Footage($200)" add-on. With this options, we would not use the client's video for anything.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
Editing is discussed before shooting. Clients provide us with the songs and pictures that would go in the wedding video.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
For standard definition (DVD) productions between 2 and 3 weeks. For High Definition (Blu-ray) productions between 3 and 4 weeks. However, we must receive any music and/or pictures before the event or the day of the event at the latest to be able to deliver the video production within these timeframes.

We are so thankful that we chose the cinema factory for our videographer. We received them as a recommendation from one of my friends that used them and are very happy we did. Raul is amazing and so incredibility nice to work with it. On the day of our wedding we didn’t even know he was there because he was so unobtrusive yet when we received our video all of the moments were perfectly captured. Raul was great in working within our budget and his pricing could not be beat…honestly for the quality of work we received he should be charging the 3-5K other videographers charge because his work and professionalism is top notch. Additionally, he was responsive to all of our questions and our video was delivered on time! If you are in the market for a videographer I really suggest The Cinema Factory as you will be as happy as we are and won’t go broke in the process.

Raul was excellent at our wedding. We were worried about bright, intrusive lights butting their way into some of our best moments, and Rau did an awesome job of capturing everything while barely being noticed doing so. That is exactly what we wanted, and we couldn't be happier with how everything went down on our big day! Thanks a lot, Raul!

We loved every aspect of the video. As most people I know do we questioned if we should have both video and photographer. I know that we made the right choice by having Raul there. I would not have had it any other way now.

I would recommend the Cinema Factory to anyone looking for a video for their wedding without looking to break the bank. We knew we wanted a wedding video, but it was an area we didn't want to allocate too much of the budget to. After meeting with a recommended videography company, we were unsure about getting a wedding video due to the priceyness of their services. After doing some research, we found the Cinema Factory. We met with Raul who was extremely professional. After seeing his work, we were sure he would provide us with a well-done video of our wedding day at a fraction of the cost of the other company. We just received our wedding video and could not be more pleased! We absolutely love it! We have recommended Raul to others and are excited to be attending a wedding soon where he will be working. From start to finish, he was always quick to respond to any of our questions or concerns. He takes his job incredibly seriously and does excellent work. The day of the wedding, we hardly knew he was there, which is something we had been concerned about when deciding whether to have a video done. We did not want bright lights and cameras in the guests' faces all the time. Raul was discreet and hardly even noticeable while still capturing our entire day beautifully! He provides amazing service at great value, and we highly recommend him!

Raul at The Cinema Factory was an amazing choice for our wedding videographer! We met with him to view some of his previous wedding footage and we were blown away with his professionalism. On the day of our wedding he was prompt and ready to go! After congratulating us, we did not even know he was there for the rest of the night. He did his job without ever interfering with the flow of events throughout the night. We cannot wait to see our wedding video because we know it will be absolutely wonderful!

I really can't believe how good our video came out; my wife and I are so unbelievably thankful. Raul is polite, respectful, and a consummate professional in every way. He made my wife and I feel comfortable and wasn't intrusive in any way, be it with us or our photographer.

By being able to choose our own music for the different video sections, it really gave a personal touch to everything. We also chose maybe unconventional wedding music (Flor. & the Machine, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, etc.) and Raul was able to set transitions and cuts to the music quite remarkably. Instead of the music feeling like just a part of the background, Raul successfully told the story of our day through the music.

I strongly recommend the Blu-Ray option. It makes a significant difference in the video quality, and the HD results are quite noticeable.

Thanks again, Raul !!

Raul did a wonderful job with our photo montages and the final video! We love showing it to our family & friends! He was a pleasure to work with, very nice, professional, helpful, and has great prices! He came to my home early and stayed until the very end of the party. I highly recommend The Cinema Factory (and already have to my friends & family). I will be using him for future events!
