Fusion of Cinematic and Documentary Style


Oak Street Films is one of the top creative Chicago wedding videographer studio servicing greater Chicago area. Our over sixteen years of experience as South Asian and American wedding videographer (Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, Greek, Italian, Polish, Latino), as well as video coverage of all pre-wedding events allowed us to develop intermixture form of filming.  Throughout the years styles in wedding video were changing, new ideas were replacing old ones for a while. Today, most of those videos look obsolete (in terms of editing style of course). That’s why we believe documentary style is timeless and will look classy even years from now. Our unique style could be called a F U S I O N – bridging documentary and cinematic forms. All wedding events, ceremonies, customs etc. are filmed in documentary style with some artistic twist. Our signature video cinematic highlights (samples of which you can see on our website) are artistic compilation of most important moments of the wedding day events which are edited in time-shifting style and color graded to achieve film look effect. The cinematic highlights are short form artistic video (no longer than five minutes) and are edited to the music selected by our clients. Oak Street Films cameramen and editors are one of the best wedding videographers in Chicago. Over the years hundreds of our satisfied customers spoke very highly about our videos, hard to replicate by other reputable studios. Today, almost all of our customers come to us from referrals. Some of our cinematic wedding videos have been featured in Bridal magazines. See some samples of our cinematic wedding videos in “work” area.

Documentary Style

All wedding events, ceremonies, customs etc. are filmed mostly in documentary style with some artistic twist. There is no posing or staged scenes, everything is portrayed as it happened. Throughout the years styles in wedding video were changing, new ideas were replacing old ones. It makes me smile when I look at music videos from seventies, eighties. That’s why I believe documentary style is timeless and will look classy even years from now. Final Blu-ray discs includes all major ceremonies and customs, speeches, performances, dances etc. All footage is delivered on high definition Blu-rays discs including chapters and menus for easy and fast navigation. The final edited video is approx 3-5 hrs long. There is also an option to convert all edited footage for delivery in standard definition on DVDs as well as digital conversion to PAL system

Cinematic Style

Our signature cinematic highlights (samples of which you can see on our main website – oakstreetfilms.net in “work” menu tab) are artistic compilation of most important moments. Cinematic highlights are edited in time-shifting style and color graded in post production to achieve film look effect. We believe that cinematic highlight should be no longer than five minutes to keep the viewer captivated.
All is edited to the music selected by our clients. It is very popular video form among our clients since it allows them to share their wedding day with family, friends, co-workers in very convenient way. Cinematic highlights are posted to our web servers in high definition and could be viewed on all mobile devices, tablets, computers all over the world. Your cinematic highlights could be password protected for added privacy.
