Thanks so much!
Whether it's a band or dance rehearsal, intimate performance or large scale show, Marinelli Moving Pictures ALWAYS delivers a quality product. I've worked with Ashley on multiple occasions and I'm always thrilled with her work - she excels not only in capturing the big moments, but also in catching those small details that make for fun additions to any video project. In addition to her talents behind the camera, Ashley is kind, punctual, thorough, and goes above and beyond to deliver quality footage and an awesome client experience.

You’re the best.
The most important part of a production, for me, is pre-pro. Marinelli Moving Pictures were on top of it! Once at location, which was perfect for the project, the vibe was perfect! Great blend of professionalism but fun! Not only did I love working with Ashley, but I hope to do it again soon!Dec 19, 2018Marinelli Moving Pictures's reply
I had so much fun doing this project with you. Let's definitely do it again soon :)

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $50/hr to shoot a project, and if any editing is required, there is an additional editing fee, which varies depending on the size/scope of the project. (For example, a hour’s worth of raw footage with basic color correction might have an editing fee of $25, while 8 hours of footage artistically edited into a feature with titles and effects might be closer $700. Each project is different, but I’m more than willing to work with my clients to find the best fit for their budgets :) *Please inquire about special discounted rates for weddings!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, clients will come to me with a concept or an idea, and we talk about the film they want to make. What it looks like, what it feels like, how involved the shooting/editing process is, what the eventual goals are for the piece. Based on the work involved, I will then give a final quote ($50/hr for camera work, plus an editing fee, based on the complexity of the edit) and we decide whether or not we are a good fit for one another. I ask for a $100 deposit up front, and the rest when the project is completed. If we both agree, then we sort out the practicalities (when, where, how) and schedule the shoot! If there is major travel involved (outside of the NYC area) my clients typically cover that cost as well. Once I have the raw footage, I’ll start to edit, paying attention to the specific details and general mood we’ve discussed. Some clients choose to be more hands on and to sit with me during the editing process, but I prefer to work remotely and send drafts to the client for notes/comments via Vimeo Pro. When both parties are happy with the finished product, I’ll send a downloadable link via Vimeo that you can save to to your devices (or burn a copy to a DVD/Flash Drive) and then ask for the final payment via PayPal or Venmo.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I initially received by BFA in Dance (and my BA In English Lit) from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Right out of school, I started working with talented filmmakers and editors on music video and film shoots (first as a dancer and then behind the scenes, as a choreographer). When I expressed interest in filmmaking, these professionals pointed me towards classes, which I devoured. After years of experimenting and making my own work, people started to request my services for performance recordings, dance reels, music videos, short films, even weddings, and my obsession grew into a business! I never would have made the connection, but in hindsight, I see that my college degrees were an essential part of what I do now. As a student of literature, I know how to craft a compelling story. As a dancer and choreographer, I know how to make that story come alive onscreen.
