Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a registered LLC (Limited Liability Company)?
Yes. Monelli Films is a registered LLC with all of the proper insurance coverage as well.
Are your prices negotiable?
No. My prices are based off professional standards and my experience in the field.
Where are you located? And do you travel?
I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with my fiancé. I also visit the Northeast PA region quite a bit. I will definitely travel for work. I love it. I've shot documentaries all over, from Denver to Washington DC and Miami to New York City. Any travel costs will be factored into your price quote. I typically don't charge travel fees for anything located within 100 miles of my home.
Where do you get the music for your films and videos?
I legally license music from sources such as The Music Bed, Premiumbeat.com, and Audio Jungle. Those licenses cost money and are always factored into your price quote.
Do you provide all of the raw footage?
I do not supply raw footage. My style of shooting is not event videography, but rather a more documentary approach. That means that most of the raw, unused footage is not usable.
Do you provide DVDs?
I do not offer wedding videos on DVD. I provide a small USB drive with a case that includes a digital high definition master file. You can store the file on your computer, iPad, etc. to watch at your convenience and the USB drive plugs directly into most TVs or DVD/Blu Ray players. The wedding video will also be stored online on sites like Vimeo and Youtube. The image quality is infinitely better this way and you never have to worry about the DVD skipping or scratching. You can easily store and share your wedding video anywhere.
