FILM • Business • LIFE
We live and work in a city with an unbelievable number of talented creatives. Over the past five years we've been incredibly encouraged by our community (the term community is intentional - we are strong believers in community, not competition). Statistics estimate that 2.4 million weddings happen each year. If each cinematographer took on 25 weddings (our sweet spot), there would essentially be 96,000 successful businesses. The problem isn't getting work - it is getting the right work. The work that makes your heart go "boom boom," (haha, you know what I mean!), the work that makes you love your craft and keeps the desire to create burning.
As a team, we've worked with hundreds of clients over the past five years and have learned how to find the right clients - the kind that you want to grab a drink with. We had to work our butts off, but indeed, it has paid off. In 2013 we started filming weddings for *literally* pennies, taking whatever came our way with an insane level of enthusiasm. This year we booked our first $10k wedding. We've experienced countless of intimate moments - the ones our clients have invited us into by choosing us to film their love stories - and have learned the art of stewarding those moments properly, from capturing to post-production to delivery. We've experienced creative burnout (anyone else out there?!) and the growing pains of running a business. We've had to learn how to work with family - a true struggle with big payoffs. But through every experience we've learned the joys that come from capturing amazing moments and we've felt the pride that comes from giving 150% to every project. These mentorships are designed to help you hit that stride too. Choose a session and let's do this thing!
