Patrick Moreau, Toronto Vendor: Cinematographer Website: Still Motion About Me: For far too long, wedding videography has been seen as a medium with debatable value and little artistic merit. I think a wedding film should be fun, quirky, romantic, and really reflect two people and their coming together. It should grab you in the first few seconds, shake you throughout, and leave you with a lingering impression. I am 1/3 of the cinematography team at StillMotion, along with Michael and Konrad. With a background in psychology and no formal training in film + video, I've been completely self taught and look to use my background to add more meaning to our films and the experience of creating them. I hope our art can inspire you like our brides inspire us.

What a treat to travel down to Tupelo and be a part of Chase and Betsy’s wedding. Though Betsy denies doing any modeling in her past, we are pretty confident she is a British supermodel. Chase, not to be outdone by Betsy’s talents, had to show us just how well he could hang from a ladder upside-down; and what a cool shot we got. :)

The superhero of the day though was Chuck Sims, the father of the groom and best man, who found us the best photo-session location to date (an abandoned warehouse) and sent out a small research team to find out who owned it and how we could get in. Chuck also gets superhero points for taking us to a small Southern restaurant to get some yummy BBQ and the tastiest homemade cake we’ve ever tried, and generally just making us feel really at home for our entire trip.

We are still getting the hang of remote Same-Day Edits, but this one really pushed us. What a time crunch- we started at the salon at 6am and the SDE was to be shown at the end of the reception shortly before 4pm. By the time we arrived at the reception and started editing, we had about 90 minutes before we needed to prepare everything to be shown. Chuck also owns Chuck Sims Images (CSI) and is a professional photographer in Tupelo shooting mainly seniors, which just added to the pressure. With such a time crunch, Mike and I had to both edit during different parts of the day, and it certainly is a good thing we did or we likely wouldn’t have been done on time.

A quick side note: The hotel we stayed in was right beside a small hardware store where Elvis bought his first guitar (Tupelo is Elvis’ birthplace), and the salesman who took him around the store still works there in his mid-70s - how cool is that!

Enjoy the SDE and check out the wild photo sampler from John.

It blows my mind that you were able to create this in 90 minutes. Where did you get the awesome black and white chairs?

I absolutely love that video. Your work is amazing! What a nice twist on “traditional” videography…
