Wedding Film Editing Tips! | Behind The Scenes of Zac and Lindsey’s Wedding Trailer

If you’ve been following my channel for a bit, you’ve probably noticed how many wedding films and trailers I upload. That’s due to wedding filmmaking being my full-time job! As I’ve been creating tutorials and reviews to help you, I’ve been considering how I can turn some of these wedding films into educational material to help you as a filmmaker, and I had an idea: what if I created behind-the-scenes videos for some of my favorite wedding films?

Now this doesn’t mean hopping in a Delorean and going back in time to bring along a third shooter to act as BTS cameraman for my prior films, but what it does mean is I am wanting to revisit some of my favorite films and discuss certain aspects of them. In this case, my good friends Zac and Lindsey’s wedding trailer.

In this video, I’ll go through and explain my thought process for how I edited it this way, and offer a key takeaway that took me many years to learn. If this helps you, could you please leave me a comment and let me know if you would like to see more videos like this in the future? Thanks!
