You have zero to none of a chance since it was over the past month or so you've been using your computer (writing over the erased space).
You can try data rescue 3 to see if you can find it and choose whether or not to spend the $100 to recover it, but at the end of the day, if you have been using your Mac for that long, even professional data recovery services would be lucky to get anything more than fragmented bits and pieces at a major cost to your hip pocket!

As 6string so eloquently said: You have zero to none of a chance......

Your movies and photos are gone forever. The time to undelete something is as soon as it happens - and then the first rule is to stop using the machine until the data is undeleted.
