WHAT WE DO
We always say that we get to meet really cool people for a living. As wedding filmmakers, it's about so much more than just shooting the cake, dress and decorations, it's about getting to know the couple you're shooting for. When did they meet? Who asked out who? Are the groomsmen going to play video games in the morning? or drink scotch? Is the bride quietly getting her make-up done? or dancing away to music on her ipod? We believe that it's by looking and listening for the answers to these types of questions that we create something more meaningful than just a series of pretty shots.
We want to inspire and be inspired by our couples, and for that reason we only take on a limited amount of weddings per year. We create a personalized, handcrafted film for each and every one of our couples, so look around and see if what we do inspires you. If so, we would love to talk about your wedding!
“Becoming an authentic storyteller means getting out of your own way, not letting your flashy camera tricks or editing prowess overshadow the only thing that actually matters in filmmaking: telling your story.”
WHO WE ARE
MARK VIGLAS Cinematographer, Studio manager
I was that 16 year old kid who had way too much fun with my high school film projects. 10 years ago James and I could only dream about the commercial projects we have done today. My biggest surprise was not how much I enjoyed making wedding films, but how rewarding it was to be appreciated by our couples for our work. I could describe our films for hours but I feel our work speaks for itself.
JAMES CLEMENT Cinematographer, Editor
Going to the movies was always one of my favourite things to do growing up, and it still is. A part from just being entertained, I was fascinated by the films with deeper stories, the ones that could show you a different point of view and even change your perspective. The ones that made you feel something. I immediately knew it was an industry I wanted to be apart of. I love telling stories through visuals, all the technical aspects, and the opportunity filmmaking offers to collaborate with amazing people. I feel incredibly grateful to have had the chance to turn my passion into a profession.
“You really have to listen with your heart. It's not necessarily about listening to words. It's also about trying to feel people and feel the story. The more you can do that, the more likely you're going to be in the right spot at the right time.”
"They do everything with great thought and truly made a point to get to know us and find out the vision we had for our wedding day. Working with them was a real pleasure."
Ali & Richard
"Mark and James are extremely approachable, friendly, easy-going, and creative. They also make you feel extremely comfortable. We are so thankful for their hard work and for being so kind and fun."
Amanda & David
"We have NEVER seen anything like this before. The amount of work and time you must have put into this really shines through! We can't thank you enough...we're very lucky to have this memory of our special day and it's because of you two! :)"
Melissa & Flavio
"Without them my wedding wouldn't have been the same [...] you are drawn into what they do because of the passion they have for their work"
Stevi & George
"Brett and I planned our Montreal wedding from London, England [...] Even though we live an ocean away, a few phone calls and emails was all it took to get exactly what we dreamed of."
Lindsay & Brett
"They made everyone feel so at ease which led to a really natural and fun video. Mark and James really stop at nothing to get the best shots for your video…which in our case involved Mark lying in a wet ditch to get an amazing up-angle, and James riding on the back of a moving truck to get a great motion shot. Now that’s what I call being committed to your craft!"
