mostra coffee | concept

we're excited to showcase this collaboration recently done with mostra for their 2nd anniversary. the theme for the video is the definition of mostra: the performance. we lit the scenes as if they were on stage to showcase just how much technique, skill and beauty go into the setup, the roast and the pour or final product. with the team having artistic backgrounds, we felt the classical soundtrack was the perfect fit for this dramatic piece.

norman & monica | "all i need" wedding trailer

ended our wedding year on a high. with such a good-looking fun couple, beautiful design and venues, and a dream team of vendors, this wedding came together like no other.  norman & monica were soaking it all in and that was what made the day special. from ceremony to the reception, the backdrops were elegant and gorgeous. we've been loving the idea of using this song for a wedding and, for some reason, method man and mary j blige just worked for this couple and fit the images from their day perfectly. so enjoy this awesome trailer for now. until next year!

jan & terri | "modern throwback" wedding trailer

jan & terri's wedding in one word: intricate.  staying in line with the "gatsby" theme of their entourage video their wedding felt nostalgic. with the couple's modern style applied, the day was surreal. we edited the first part going through their day slow and steady to highlight the emotional moments.  we then double back to a fast pace run through of the fun-filled day using a modern remix on an older song. so without further ado, here is, "modern throwback."

mark & robyn | "candid" wedding trailer

there were so many cool, candid moments throughout mark & robyn's day. once we walked in the room we could tell they were going to be such a fun couple to film. naturally, we went with more of a traditional movie trailer format cutting back and forth between those candid moments and the super cinematic clips. music starts off with a favorite composer of ours to, coincidentally, a song we were already set on using and one the groom used in the awesome montage he made for his wedding. it seemed to fit the mood of the day perfectly.

jan & terri | "the party" entourage & grand entrance

terri & jan had great ideas for this concept.  starting with the gatsby theme and the line from the movie, "i love small parties.  they're so intimate.  at large parties, there isn't any privacy." we created our own version of the epic party in the movie, incorporating other elements from videos and the soundtrack to make their vision come to life.  to tie their grand entrance video in, we "rewound" to earlier in the day at their "favorite meeting spot," the airport.  jan's a military man and, over the course of their relationship, has had to travel constantly.  we played off that as the theme for their grand entrance.  in the final clip, to emulate their actual reception grand entrance, we then fast forward back their entrance at "the party."

the video worked perfectly as a narrative and hyping the crowd for the couples official appearance as husband & wife.
