Why I Love Weddings:
It is a very special moment in the lives of two people, and for me, it is a true honor to be part of such an important celebration, and to be able to give them reasons to highlight their day.
A Little Bit About Myself:
For a boy born and raised in New Jersey, video games were my favorite thing to do. When I was in my freshman year of high school at 14 years old, I was playing Halo 3 when I first met “Machinima”, which is the combination of two words: “Machine and Cinema”. Together these 2 words mean “creating cinematic stories in video games”.
This is how, what initially began as a hobby handling a controller, became my passion through a film camera. These stepping stones shaped what is now my professional career in filmmaking, and what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Most Memorable Wedding Moment:
For me, the most important thing is to make sure the bride and groom have a special day. If in addition to this, I receive recognition for my work, I would be fulfilling one of my main goals in life.
With that said, I remember a moment in which, despite having said my name only once to the groom, he was able to remember it after the end of the event, due to the quality of my work. He shared my name with other friends and family members during and even after the event! That satisfaction due to a well-done job is a feeling that I wouldn't change for anything.
Although I can easily adapt to any style preferred by my clients, I prefer gimbal tracking shots to immerse the audience in the film, allowing them to experience a real-time journey through a setting, in the same manner as the onscreen people.
When I don't have my camera in my hand, I enjoy my free time doing exercise to maintain a healthy and fitness lifestyle.
