Do you have a drone?
Did you just groan?
Drones are cool but they are very one dimensional. It’s easy to get romanticized with the imagery of a drone because it’s a perspective we as humans don’t often see. It’s like hearing an idea you’ve never heard before. While I do use them and I think they have their place I don’t particularly think they help me tell a better story, after all it’s a wide angle camera in the sky.
Will you travel?
Absolutely and anywhere for that matter. Generally travel fees don’t start applying until I start crossing multiple states or have to get in a plane.
What’s your favorite ice cream?
Ben and Jerry’s for life.
Do you bring another cinematographer?
Absolutely, a wedding is always a two person job!
I’ve heard things about photographers and cinematographers not getting along…
That’s why it’s important to hire professionals, because professionals respect the fact that we aren’t here for ourselves we are here to provide the best imagery possible to the people that commissioned us to do so. I’ve never had an incident, in fact most weddings I leave with a new homie.
After the wedding will you film us doing the nasty?
Sure, what the heck, why not?
How long does it take to get our wedding film?
A highlight reel takes 6-8 weeks and a full length up to 15 weeks.
That seems like a while…
It certainly isn’t next day service but there is quite a process to go through to get the videos up to snuff. First I choose the music that is perfectly suited to your wedding. This is not a fast process, I’ve spent up to an entire work week searching for music.
Let me stop you there, can we pick the music?
No and here is the deal with music. Music is a very powerful force, other than food I can't think of anything else that evokes memories as instantly as music. Which is why when I choose the music is it not an arbitrary decision because it sounds like “something that would be in a wedding video.” I take EVERYTHING into account, the feel of the day, the emotions between the couple, the look of the wedding, the location etc. I want the music to be an extension of the footage not just audio wallpaper. This is a very time consuming process, but 100% worth the effort because down the road that song will replay in your head and will always be synonymous with your wedding day! Price includes music licensing and music must be licensed. This gives us the ability to showcase your video on social media and not get sued by Coldplay. Also, we don’t re-use songs, we are making a film about YOUR wedding day and to keep it truly yours we choose music that is individual to you.
Wow, that was exhausting.
My cousin/ friend/ brother/ someone I know is an editor can you just shoot and send me the footage so they can edit it?
Do you go grocery shopping at a restaurant? No, what we produce is a reflection of our video capturing and editing skills, sorry but we only handle both.
Do you know your company abbreviates to WTF?
What the…. J/K Yes totally aware and my friends actually call me that now hahaha
Hopefully that answered most questions but if there are more head over to our contacts page we’d love to hear from you!
