I always wanted to try this ( Go Pro behind the sand jar)!

Go Pros are great for shooting extreme sports and dangerous action shots.
But they often lack the “glamorous” look most families want in a wedding video.

But I always thought they might work hidden around the altar to catch brief moments a big camera wouldn’t fit in. Like behind the candles or over an archway.

Most of the time when the wedding couple is doing something like lighting the unity candle or the sand ceremony or the “Wedding Lasso” their backs are to the audience. And thus, their backs are to my cameras. Who wants to look at THAT?

About 2 years I had one of my “real” cameras behind the “Unity Candle” it looked great on video but it was kind of a distraction in the moment.007)

This was from a small digital camera hidden in the ceiling. Driping Spgs terrace ipod
You certainly wouldn’t want to look at THAT for the whole wedding video, but it’s an acceptable cut away shot.

In addition to my “real” cameras, I tucked my Samsung phone in the bushes behind the altar for THIS shot:

Advancing technology in all things, especially micro cameras, are making my job a LOT easier! I can use multiple cameras and not have to charge my couples any more money!

For my next weddings I plan on using more micro cameras to get lots of unique camera angles.

Youtube is a great place for filmmaking research.  Wedding Videographers like to show off their new ideas and I like to implement them!

“In any creative endeavor, if you see someone doing something you like- copy it! Because I assure you- They did!”

-Michael Caine.

I just typed in “gopro wedding video ” to start my research. Some of the results were just silly, but some were brilliant. All were though provoking.

These folks used several Go Pros to record the whole wedding.  

It’s interesting but I think THAT much fisheye is too much for a whole ceremony. You can see they also used a traditional dslr for other footage.

A good Go Pro on high end drone looks fabulous! ( Reminder! I am NOT claiming I made these!).

A Go Pro hidden in the brides bouquet?!?!? How clever!

I am SO jealous I didn’t think of this!!!

Business Videos

In addition to making first class wedding videos, we can also use our filmmaking skills to produce excellent business videos for companies that want an online video presence.

Short, tight memorable videos that will help sell your business.

People will sit and watch a well done web video before they will actually READ a lot of text!

Visitors who watch videos will stay on your web site twice as long and visit twice as many pages versus those who don’t see video.

One study reported that visitors were  144% more likely to purchase   after seeing a product video than those who did not.

So you know you need web videos but you fear the extraordinary costs and risks of starting an internal video department, or have apprehension about hiring an expensive outsourced video producer?

We are the compromise you are looking for!

We have produced ( co-wrote, shot, edited, animated and posted to youtube) numerous sales videos for a variety of companies such as:

TV commercial for a local lawyer:

A Book Trailer for the children’s book “Winnie and Thunderrose”

A short film commissioned by the West Point Society of Central Texas:

A web video for an upcoming live stage musical:

and an animated music video used IN the play:

motion graphics demo reel:

A promo video for an independent film screening:

A web video for a local bike company:

A cartoon music video for funk band “ The Razor Bumps”:

Music video for the Surf instrumental band “The Nematoads”:

ARMY MEN:

This is some older web video work done in the 90’s:

(obviously back in the compressed 320 by 240 web video days!)

Pro vs Amateur

We didn’t make this video. But we think it’s an excellent example of why a future bride should hire a professional videographer and not leave it to an uncle with a hand held iphone.
