"A good life is a collection of happy moments." - Dennis Waitley
The goal of a custom creative film is to memorialize a set of those happy moments from wherever you are in life right now. Whether you are a young couple celebrating that first year of marriage, a "tween" who is both growing up and holding on to those last bits of childhood, or a family feeling lost in the chaos of life with small children, there is always one certainty: life changes so quickly.
Creating a custom film is a collaborative process between my clients and I that results in a beautiful and deeply personal keepsake from this moment in time, whatever that may look like for them. Here are a just a sampling of film options to consider:
FAMILY FILM - A family film is a wonderful way to document all of the interests, special connections, and love among your unique family as they are right now. Children get older, relationships and interests change, but a custom family film can help make these moments last forever!
MILESTONE FILM - A milestone film focuses on one child in order to capture the fullness of your child’s personality at any given moment in time. Milestone films are perfect for kids at any age, but children in the 8-14 range are particularly well-suited for these!
SIBLING FILM - A sibling film is a great option for parents who want to stay out of the limelight or for highlighting the special and unique relationships among siblings.
AND MORE - Couples, newborns, high school seniors, fashion, commercial marketing ... the creative possibilities are endless! I would love to help you document your moment in time, whatever that may be. Be sure to browse some of my films above for inspiration!
What is the process of creating a film?
LET'S BOOK IT
You are ready to create something special for your family and so am I! I pour so much passion and joy into each and every film - I can promise that my creative wheels are already spinning at this point in the process. We will get your shoot date scheduled, your contract signed, your retainer paid, and then the fun really begins!
TELL ME ALL ABOUT YOU
In the 3-4 weeks before our scheduled shoot, I'll send you an online questionnaire to fill out that will tell me all about the subject(s) that will be featured in your custom film. It covers everything from likes and dislikes, personalities and quirks, interests and activities, and anything else that you want to make sure is captured in your film.
LET THE PLANNING BEGIN
Once I receive your questionnaire, I'll spend some time pouring over it and conceptualizing some ideas and creative direction for your film. At this point, we will schedule a "virtual consultation" via Zoom or FaceTime where I can meet the subjects and we can discuss the ideas I have brainstormed so far. We will nail down the location, style, and content that we want to capture, and we will also talk about wardrobe and what (if any) props or other items will need to be gathered to include in our shoot. We will walk away from this meeting with a strong outline of what our plans and goals are for your film.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
The big day is here! This is the day where I'll put all of our plans and ideas into action. We will meet up at our chosen location, get set up and get shooting! I pride myself on my ability to keep subjects of all ages comfortable and relaxed during our shoot so that I can coax out those natural expressions and interactions that make a custom film so precious. This is where the magic happens!
GRAB YOUR POPCORN, IT'S A PREMIERE
While I wish I could set up a red carpet big screen premiere for all my film clients, I encourage you to make it just as exciting! I'll send over the link as soon as your custom film has been carefully and lovingly edited together. So gather your family, grab your refreshments, put it on the big screen and enjoy. Past clients tell me that you will want to have some Kleenex on hand too! Watch it once, twice, a hundred times, share it as far and wide as you like. It's all yours!
Within 3-4 weeks of your shoot, I'll drop off the beautiful custom products included with your film: a personalized wooden presentation box which holds a customized wooden USB containing your film file, a set of 4x6 fine art prints of stills from your film, and a wooden stand to display them. Want an even easier way to share your film with others? Add on a beautiful Video Book - it looks like an album but opens up to a screen and controls and comes loaded with your film!
