Meet a Wedding Videographer in New York, NY: NST Pictures

 

Today’s wedding videographer interview is with NST Pictures, based in New York, NY! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

NST Pictures began as a Japanese wedding company almost 40 years ago. In 2012, we opened our US headquarters in New York City with a small, start-up feel and have been helping couples capture their big day ever since. We noticed that cinematography was extremely expensive compared to traditional camcorder-style videography and we wanted to change that. Every couple should be able to afford a beautiful wedding film—after all, it’s their family’s history.  We offer wedding video packages that start at $1580. Our style is very classic with artistic touches so your film will be beautiful but won’t become cheesy as time passes and trends change.

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Brisbane, Australia: Motion Art (1)

Today’s interview is with Australian wedding videographer Geoff Schatzel of Motion Art! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

After spending five years as a news and sports cameraman for ABC and FOX affiliates in Albany, New York I moved to the Gold Coast of Australia. There I filmed my first wedding as a guest and edited the footage together as a gift to the bride and groom. After filming a few more weddings for friends I was hired at a local resort as their in-house wedding videographer.

I worked there for two years before I finally made the leap to strike it out on my own by creating my current brand, Motion Art. I think those two years working for someone else helped me find my own style and I also met many other celebrants and photographers who I still call friends.

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Toronto, ON: Giancarlo Studios

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Toronto, ON: Giancarlo Studios

Today’s wedding videographer interview is with Giancarlo of Giancarlo Studios, based in Toronto, Ontario! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

We do wedding videos. We are a small, bespoke film company based in Toronto, Canada and we love to express our artistic visions through storytelling, We specialize in wedding films as we sincerely believe a story is best told through moving pictures.

Back in 2011, my sister, who now works with me as my second shooter, got herself a DSLR and started getting into photography and videos. She would come to shoot random family events and other subjects of interest and I was always impressed with her video edits that I started to play around with videos soon after. I’ve always been interested in video in my younger years but back in the day, I didn’t own a computer powerful enough to render them. With the advent of more powerful computers, I now have the opportunity to really play around with NLEs and unleash creative potential. To make this long story short, I was inspired by my sister to really get into this type of work and the positive responses we get along the way is enough fuel for us to keep going and strive to be better after every shoot.

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Detroit, MI: Sculpted Films (1)

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Detroit, MI

Today’s videographer interview Brittany and Alex of Sculpted Films, based in Detroit, Michigan! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

Me (Brittany) and my fiancé (Alex) both went to different liberal arts colleges, Alex studied sculpture (hence the name), animation, and film editing, and I studied creative writing. For two years we lived in New York City primarily working jobs unrelated to our studies – I waited tables and was an urban farmer for an upscale restaurant on the East River while Alex worked at a frame shop in Brooklyn and performed freelance video work on the side. Our schedules were so opposite that we rarely got to see each other and we always talked about how great it would be if we were able to work together and we often spoke of one day owning our own business – an idea that seemed like something far in our future.

Then in December of 2013 we had friends visiting and these friends happen to make up the Michigan indie folk band, Less is More. They were telling us about the 3 ½ month long U.S. tour they were planning on embarking on in the fall of 2014 to promote their first album to which we of course said, “Wow, I wish we could do something like that,” to which they replied (probably jokingly,) “You should come with us!” The more we thought about it the less is seemed like a joke and it started to make a lot of sense – I would get to use my creative writing education for their PR and website copywriting, etc, and Alex would film our journey and make music videos, video blogs, and eventually a documentary of the tour. It seemed like the perfect launching pad into the next phase of our life even though we have no idea exactly what that phase was going to entail. On the road was where we realized how two creative minds are better than one while filming and editing and the prospect of working together as a videography team started to sound not so crazy.

Our chance to work together and work for ourselves came to us much earlier in life than we expected. On January 1, 2015 we officially became an LLC and we filmed our first wedding ten days later. We’ve hit the ground running working on filming more weddings, styled shoots, and promoting our business like crazy and though we are busier than we’ve ever been, it’s different when you are busy working for yourself and every hour that you put in is directly furthering your business and furthering the possibility of us continuing to do what we love.

Today’s videographer interview is with Justina and Evaldo of Just Happy Together based in London, England! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

We are Justina and Evaldo, videographers at Just Happy Together and also partners in life. Before we started filming weddings, we were both filmmakers of different genres. Justina was keeping herself busy with documentaries, while Evaldo was doing animations. Our previous filmmaking experiences taught us invaluable lessons that we can now apply to wedding videography. Justina is amazing at capturing the most important moments completely unnoticed, while Evaldo is a genius at composing the perfect frame. Both of us decided to go into wedding videography because we wanted to be independent film artists and have the ability to work on the weddings that really inspire us.

Today’s videographer interview is with Anthony of ARAND Video Services based in Pittsburg, CA! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company,  how did you get started?

The vision of ARAND Video Services started when Anthony made a family video for a family reunion in 1996.  The family loved the video so much they then asked him to create a video for all future projects such as Wedding Anniversaries, Birthdays and retirement celebrations.

Anthony met his wife Olivia in 1999 and an instant romance turned into a blissful marriage in 2002.  Once they combined their talents, Anthony soon discovered his wife, Olivia, was also very talented in creativity with her own style and talents using mutli software products to  further enhance photos, that added a unique custom design to fit the client’s needs. Anthony and his wife created classic heirlooms, and as a result, family members shared this couple’s talents with their friends and family members who started soliciting the couple to produce their family video projects.

As the couple embarked on a major career change in 2008, through prayer and direction they  officially founded ARAND Video Services. They are Christians and discovered they were both blessed with a vision, so their mission focus was to help customers create a professional video without having the concern of being charged for every added expense or any hidden cost. They then create a logo “It’s not totally about us — It’s about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as He is in control of our walk in how we treat our customers.  They then discovered their  company’s name was given to them to help remind others that the Lord will return to rebuild His new Temple. “After Resurrection A New Destiny” will be in place!  ~ Revelations 21:1-8 ~  They stand by their strong beliefs to treat their customers the way the Lord expects fairness in every business deal, and they work hard to bless their clients with fond memories of how they can help them accomplish their vision.

Get to Know a Wedding Videographer: Phoenix Moirai (1)

Today’s videographer interview is with Bryan Caron of Phoenix Moirai based in Temecula, CA! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

Phoenix Moirai was started in order to bring all of my passions under one roof. I am a writer at heart, a filmmaker/videographer by mind and a graphic designer by trade, but I love working in all of these mediums equally. Because of that, and because they all work relatively well in tandem together, it was a easy to create a company that would allow people to bring all of their creative needs under one roof. Instead of hiring a graphic designer from one company, a videographer from another, and a writer/marketer from yet another, clients can no have everything done in one place and save money.

But what initially started me on the road to developing this company was the idea of doing wedding videography. If it wasn’t for the idea of being able to showcase someone’s love in all of its glory, and cover more than just the wedding in the process, I’m not sure Phoenix Moirai would have come to fruition.
