The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.

As a Director of Photography, I’m the one photographing with a motion picture camera (the art and science of which is known as cinematography). The title used to designate a chief over the camera and lighting crews working on a film, responsible for achieving artistic and technical decisions related to the image. The term “cinematographer” applies when the director of photography and camera operator are the same person.

Three things are necessary to become a good director of photography: training, experience, and a good eye. I’m also the director whose skills include sound design and film making.

The natural way in which people think is to storify their experiences. This is how you remember, you put the past into story form in order to make sense out of life and try to understand what your life has been like, to try to prepare for the future. The mind is constantly storifying its experience. That’s the way it works.


This style of filmmaking is more about telling a story of the day, anchored on an event using timeshift techniques to bring emotion and style to your wedding film. It takes a lot of work to create a truly amazing Short Form and they take longer to edit than more tradition films. As the name suggests, the short form edit is shorter than a traditional film. Short form edits can run from 20 to 40 minutes.

A Short Form Edit has all the key elements of the day, the emotions are deeper than a traditional film, and can be easily watched on a number of different formats. This is the greatest challenge for an editor. Done right a short form film is the ultimate event film that can be watched many times and inspire on every viewing.
