DJ Scott Jones was recently introduced to a unique, novelty wedding service called Storymix. With this budget-friendly process, wedding guests can get involved in making a fun, professionally edited wedding video from their own perspective.
Using up to 5 of Storymix’s HD handheld cameras or a complimentary iPhone app, anyone at the wedding, rehearsal or honeymoon can capture video clips throughout the day. You then return the cameras and/or upload the video and pick a theme. Storymix takes all that video and allows you to personalize it online, or they will edit it for you. The result isn’t a replacement for a videographer’s cinematic or documentary-style wedding video, but is an interactive and affordable way to get another perspective of an entire wedding experience.
Storymix doesn’t just cater to weddings, either. Their service is a great way to package, memorialize and present a corporate event, family vacation, Bar Mitzva, or life milestone.
Below is sample of the finished product for one of our recent brides. DJ Scott Jones can be spotted towards the end!
The equation really is simple math:
Focus on Guests + Delivery of Great Guest Experience = Desired Behavior (Dancing)
But not everyone is good at math, so class begins now – a year before the test.
There are so many factors that can contribute to (or take away from) a full dance floor at a wedding reception or other special event. Many of these factors have nothing to do with the DJ. Time and location of the actual ceremony, venue of the reception, weather, parking, traffic all have an influence on the guest experience and therefore on the dance floor itself. Obviously, we can’t control all of these things, but as entertainment consultants we have to help clients become aware of these factors, control whatever can be controlled and adapt them to contribute to a full dance floor. This takes careful planning from the very beginning of the planning process. The actual event may be a year from now, but because there are so many things – let’s call them “dance floor factors” – that can be controlled and need to be planned far in advance, our team’s job is to start filling the dance floor…now.
