Where’s is your working zone?

Our office is located in Ancona, Italy, we make films all over Italy, but also beyond national borders, in Switzerland, Spain (we speak the Spanish language correctly), Argentine, south and central America, our members are ANV (Associazione Nazionale Videografi), WEVA (Worldwide Event Videographers Association) and Insipration Photographer.

What features your films?

Our films document what actually happens, using a cinematic language that make it a real movie whit quality comparable to 35mm of the film. But a product called “Wedding Cinema” must have specific characteristics, telling a story through a filmc syntax that follows an audiovisual language.

We valorize the original sound to convey the emotion and the real feeling, creating all the conditions of a film production senior.

How do you work during the shot?

Discretion is what we care the most, because we believe that the wedding is the celebration of the couple and we’re there to document what happens and not to interfare on the day’s events.

We like to stay at the edge of the scene in order to capture the moments of greatest emotion and real expression, if we aren’t seen it’s more spontaneous than when the camera is in front of you.

Our conviction is that the equipment doesn’t make a better film (used in the best way surely helps) but the ideas that you have in setting and recording.We specify that our images are characterized by a cinematic cut, as well as the color rendering which differs a lot compared to the video footage with cameras. We typically use 2 operators, according to the technical and logistical requirements, equipped with Sony A7iii 4K.

All our highly advanced equipment allows us to work without additional lighting, that will be used only in extreme cases. The work style is the Wedding Reportage so there will be no indications on command, but we’ll report only what really happens and in the greatest possible discertion.

What includes the video service?

The Editing provides the realization of a Wedding Story summed up in 3/5 minutes and the Wedding Film that lasts in 15/20 minutes according on the day’s events

What features the Wedding Film?

In this type of editing you go beyond the traditional understanding of a wedding film. The images of the main events will be reported in a engaging and exciting way combining them to an original soundtrack selected for the occasion. The film doesn’t necessarily follow a chronological order of the day, but they are set according to a programmed story telling, since that it can tell a particularly story.

What’s the option “Save the Date”?

The “Save the Date” is a short video made before the wedding, very popular in the rest of Europe and the World, used by the couple as a video invitation to the wedding.

In which format do you deliver films?

-1/3 as a deposit on booking after signing the contract;

-1/3 as advance expenses, the day of the ceremony or by bank transfer 5 days before the event;

-1/3 as balance on delivery.

Do you have the rights for the music sync?

Soundtracks of Wedding Films must respect the sync rights, otherwise it would constituite a violation of the economic exploitation rights, articles 18 and 61 of the copyright law. Law no. 248/2000 “ New rules of protection of Copyright”, staes that on support like CD, DVD or Blue-Ray, containig sounds, voices and images in movement, including those protected by the copyright law, must bear a mark. The task of applying the mark is entrusted to the S.I.A.E. by the same law. The S.I.A.E. Has made available a list of music for the ceremony services at arate of € 16,50 for each recorded support with its relative label identification. Unfortunately, the type of music selected from them isn’t up to do a worthy work, for this reason the Daniele Donati Films will leans to the “Songfreedom.com”, “ART-LIST” and “TheMusicBed.com” for music sync license. Of course this means that all the themes not included in “Songfreedom.com”’s sync rights will not be included in the soundtracks of films in question.

How can I book your services?

Having customers from all over the world, we are structured for a complete online management, from the vision of the works, to the stipulation of the contract until digital delivery. If logistically a personal meeting is possible we will be pleased. Contact me to request an appointment, my studio is on the World Wide Web and my office wherever you are!

Do you make also photo shoot?

We do not carry out the wedding photo service, but on request we rely on specialized photographic studios with whom we work, to ensure maximum reliability and quality. But you are free to choose the photographer that you like, this is not binding on the film.

 However, the way some photographers work can have a negative effect on the work on the film, so it is always better to let us know the name of the photographer chosen so that we can assess whether it is compatible with the way we work. For a better result the photographer: must NOT use Flash, must NOT use additional lighting (headlights in the Church), MUST be a professional and as such has the discretion that some moments require and respect for other professionals working in the marriage.

Instead we produce a PACKAGING FOR PHOTO FRAMES which represents an alternative to the classic wedding photography service and includes the digital delivery of "steel" taken from the original 4K video with a maximum pixel size of 4,096 × 2,160
