Film Investment


THE VISION - Your personal story

A film is more than just a recording of the day, it is an investment into a vision, one that you are going to want to watch time and time again.  It is an investment for the short term celebrations as well as for the long term legacy that you will hold forever.  


THE long term investment - Your heartfelt REMINISCEnce

As you creep towards your twilight years you will look back with fond memories and will appreciate more and more, how personal your film story was created.  Your facial expressions, your personalities, your body language, even your voice will seem so different that you will turn to your partner and say that you were glad you had a more personal film made.


THE Approach - Your Comfort with minimal fuss

My films are completely unobtrusive.  I use photography cameras and lenses and only use them during moments, so the rest of the time I look like a guest.  No huge rigs and shoulder cameras with cables and massive tripods stomping over you. Just small cameras appearing once in a while.  I want the experience of your wedding to be no different to your guests filming you walking down the isle with their cameras.


Your Advantage - an Art director only creates a few films a year

I can assure you that the quality, personalisation and emotion will be there for every wedding that I do.  The benefit of having a 7 year teaching and 5 year photography background means, I know my stuff and I wont be just following the photographer around all day.  Your wedding will benefit from unique storytelling, interesting compositions, and the use of light.  Your film will be methodically directed, with minimal intervention.


There are 2 approaches to weddings - video media or cinematic film

I have worked with dozens of videographers and I know the industry so well, I can safely say there are 2 approaches.  Cinematic film or video, or as I like to call it, Gordon Ramsey vs McDonalds.


The video approach: 30-200 videos a year.

90% of wedding videos on the market are created with an assembly line approach, and are generally supported by paying the venues per recommendation.  The care of your individuality is smoke and mirrors.  Key words like 'film' and 'graded' are used but you never receive that.  Your wedding is simply a clone of someone else's, check their other videos and you will soon see.  This systematic way of making your video is a very forced experience and can be awkward for guests on the day.  I would recommend getting a friend to video it over a videographer.


The film approach: 10-30 films a year.

10% of the market are artists like myself who prioritise the people and the art over the business amount.  I care about quality not quantity.  I design the narrative of your story from scratch and grade your films which actually takes up to 3 months to produce.  Proper filmmakers, time wise can only make 15-25 wedding films a year.  I am more understanding of your peoples needs and boundaries and I work flexibly around your day.  Its just much more comfortable and nicer for you over 8-10 hour period.   I would definitely recommend a cinematographer.  Although I do recommend having a photographer, there is a trend coming over from the USA of brides choosing cinematographers over photographers.


Your value - Quality products last forever

My passion for people means I want your story to make sense and feel like your own.  I also want your wedding film to work in harmony with your wedding photography.  I have worked along side so many cheaper videographers, and they miss moments and squabble with the photographer.  Your day should always be more about you and less about the suppliers.


reccomend the best

I'll be up front here, I love being part of a large occasion and I love to create a story in post production.  Its like being a Hollywood director but in a real world event so I just want to capture all of the emotion.  There are many cinematographers and photographers that I know throughout the world who share this same passion for storytelling.  Wherever your wedding is, if I am unavailable, I can point you in the right direction.
