How To Film Incredible Dancing Footage In Your Wedding Films!

My favorite wedding filmmaking gear: https://kit.com/whoismatt
Today, I have a new tutorial for you all about how I film dancing at a wedding reception. In it, I cover four key tips that should help your improve your footage of people dancing during a wedding reception. The open dance floor doesn’t have to be boring or intimidating! It can be a lot of fun, I promise.

In this video I cover:
😀How to interact with the couple, wedding coordinator, and DJ when preparing to film the dancing at the reception.
💡A way to light the dance floor and make it look incredible even when there’s awful venue lighting.
💃My go-to technique to get more energetic dancing shots that show how much fun the wedding guests were having.
😮The exact way I shoot to make editing dancing footage super easy in post (it’s almost editing itself!)

If any of that interests you, I would highly recommend checking out the video. 🙂
