QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

• I realize only about a dozen films of WED-DING per year. It is my choice. Each film requires my full attention. I always wished to remain a craftsman attached to a real relation personalized with my Clients.
To have a CINEMA approach is to have his own writing. It does not mean copying the films that surround us. The effects should not become compulsory just like this compulsive use of Steadycam, Drone, etc. Most of the time, effects only serve to hide the inability of a videographer to capture an emotion. Just watch all these films where laughs and crying are masked by music !!!

I DO NOT LIVE IN SWITZERLAND. DO YOUR DVD OR OTHER MEDIA WILL BE VISIBLE IN MY COUNTRY ?

• Our Bridegrooms and other Clients are of any origin. Our realizations are NATIVLY FULL HD | 4K in the video standard (NTSC or PAL) of the Country of destination of the movie. NO TRANSCODING = ANY LOSS.

WHY TO CHOOSE PIER-YVES MENKHOFF FILMS ?

• The reason is simple and essential: I NEVER ASK TO POSE FOR ME *. A Wedding is above all a celebration. It must be spontaneous. You must FORGET photographer and director. Except for some photos, if desired, out of church, synagogue or town hall, or during the cocktail for the photographer.
I do not like these Weddings where the Brides and Grooms spend their time looking towards the photographer or even posing. This is inevitably noticed on any movie. I also think that a photographer or director who ask fo pose for him|her always realizes the same report Wedding after Wedding. There is nothing natural.
I share the point of view of the photographer STEVE SCHAPIRO about discretion. << When I work, I remain silent. I want to capture the spirit of the people I photograph. The photographer has a minor role. It may dis-turb a comedian during an important scene. >>. Confirmed by HARVEY KEITEL : << Nobody is natural when he strikes a pose. >>.
For more than 20 years, the Bride and Groom choose us because we offer a REAL alternative to the traditional Wedding film. I invite you to discover the opinions of our Brides and Grooms in KIND WORDS page.

* I OFFER you the film of your Wedding if I ask you to pose for me. Even if only once...
