I had the pleasure of making a video of my niece's wedding last week. She had a beautiful, small ceremony with just immediate family. I edited the video and she screened it at the Saturday night party.
Of course it was a pleasure because I had the chance to spend time with family. But here are some of the other things I think she did right:
- She and Eric asked "why" with each decision they made to make sure they were adding meaning, not just work. - They kept me informed (for example - "we'll be starting our first dance in a few minutes.") - They hired ice cream truck to come to the reception!
Here is the video, congratulations Melissa & Eric!
I studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Film at NYU, then started a career in documentary filmmaking in New York City. I soon realized the city life was not for me. After time in Aspen and in Rockport Maine I came to Vermont for a seasonal television job in the ski industry and never left. I have run my own video production business, Madmotion, llc., since 1996.
I started Tweed River Video specifically for wedding video work in 2003. In addition to weddings I continue to work in documentary, commercial and sports video production and design.
