  • How much time does it take to learn / acquire the skills?
    A year is more than sufficient if you work under some experienced wedding filmers. Though, learning and updating about technology and skills would be forever.

  • Where to acquire the skills?
    Best way is to work / intern under somebody. Film Making is all about going out there and making things happen.
    There are multiple things to be be learnt - camera, movements, emotions, music, sound design, sound recording, editing, data handling. Yes, it takes time.

  • Possibilities?
    Really great. There are wedding filmers who charge 2.5 lakh per day to 10 lakh per day. And, if you build a name, money is just there waiting for you. People are willing to pay lakhs and lakhs if you can capture their wedding memories in the most special way.

  • Investment required?
    To learn - work under somebody. They will pay you a stipend or may ask you just to volunteer. Be ready to clean the table for them also. That is how you learn.
    Once you are trained, the camera, cinema gears and editing setup will cost you 3-4 lakhs. The amount can further go up if you want to enhance the quality. Team is also important. You need to collab with like minded people.
    You can avoid this money too if you just rent out the gears for shoot. But that will hurt your profit in long term.

  • Amount that can be earned?
    10-100 lakhs yearly.
    Though, it will totally depend on the quality of your finished product and how you market yourself. Be nice.

  • Hectic or not?
    At times yes. Shooting a wedding requires a lot of concentration. Editing it requires months. Negotiating and finding client is another thing. But if it is your passion, you would be travelling, meeting new people, having fun and enjoying all around. You will never know if you have spare time.

  • Notes / Suggestions
