Our base is in Ancona, Italy, we make films throughout Italy, but also throughout Europe, South and Central America (we speak Spanish correctly), our members are ANV (Associazione Nazionale Videografi), WEVA (Worldwide Event Videographers Association) ) and Insipration Photographer.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
We deliver all our work in DIGITAL DOWNLOAD with a highly innovative system specialized in the wedding.

The soundtracks of Wedding Films must respect the synchronization rights, otherwise they would constitute a violation of the rights of economic exploitation, articles 18 and 61 of the copyright law, Law no. 248/2000 “New rules for the protection of Copyright”, indicates that the trademark must be affixed to media containing sounds, voices and moving images, including those protected by copyright law. Daniele Donati Films will use "ART-LIST" copyrighted music for synchronization and music license. Obviously this means that any themes not included in the sync rights will not be included in the soundtracks of the films in question.
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!
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
If you are also looking for wedding photographers who have maximum compatibility with our wedding films I can advise you to follow the work of these professionals:
- Nicola Tonolini based in Pesaro,Marche and Lake of Garda
- Francesco Gravina based in Apulia
- Thomas Harris based in Florence, Tuscany
- Andrea & Federica based in Umbria

They have different styles, but all guarantee the utmost discretion and professionalism.
