MARK GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND!! This review is long overdue but I just finished watching the edited and raw footage that Mark has sent us and just...WOW!! I knew he did so much on the day of BY HIMSELF, but the footage was so great. He got so much detail! I hired Mark as a wedding present for my sister and I KNOW she won't be disappointed! He got so much that we didn't even think of mentioning to him to include. This man knows exactly what he is doing! Mark was great from the beginning! From being able to film my sister's wedding at 2 weeks notice after a last minute cancellation, to his excellent communication and suggestions for my sister's wedding, to his patience on the day of the wedding and being able to adjust to every last minute change. You can tell that this cinematographer has experience doing this and he knows exactly what to expect and what questions to ask when you are lost. EVERYONE was so pleased to have him at the wedding!! The guests thought it was so cool to have a DRONE at the wedding!! I only paid Mark for four hours but the wedding ceremony was a little behind schedule and he STILL suggested going to the reception to get the introduction of the Bride and Groom. This man was so amazing. He asked all the right questions and even asked if we wanted to get footage of the bride and groom reading each other letters in their hotel room before the ceremony, and that sparked the idea of having them add that to their wedding day itinerary. THEY LOVED THE IDEA and it CAME OUT SO BEAUTIFUL! Mark seems like the kind of man that has seen it all and done it all when it comes to weddings. He blended in so well with every setting. He knew exactly what to say in each situation and other times, you didn't know he was there because he was working and blending in so well! The footage Mark sent us transported us back to the day of the wedding. My family loved it so much and are still talking about Mark and his great work. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MARK! Each time I talk about my sister's wedding, I mention you and the detail you put into everything! You were even great at following up with me after the wedding and printing the DVD's and DVD cases with photos from the wedding, SO GREAT! My sister loves every bit of it! She was so happy with all the little details you captured! Thank you! Thank you!
There are not enough words to express my thanks for connecting me with Dan Mckechnie ! I needed a film editor to produce a compilation of photos for my husband's memorial service. If there were an Academy Award for memorial videos, Dan would win without question! Not only was his work beautiful, creative and on time, but his patience with me was almost superhuman! He delivered above and beyond. He allowed me to take part in the editing which turned out to be the most therapeutic activity I engaged in. I hired him out of a field of 6 people who answered my request for help with my husband's memorial. The reason I chose him was that he was the only one of the 6 who expressed sympathy for my loss. I knew by this that he had the sensitivity to handle the project. His price for making this priceless video was more than fair. His attention and kindness went far beyond what would have been needed for the project. I will always be grateful to Dan and to Thumbtack for linking me up with him!
We decided to hire Steven Grossman to film our wedding at The Casino in San Clemente, CA on July 8, 2016 and we were so happy we did! We just wanted the raw footage without editing and it was very affordable. We had the hard drive within days of our wedding. Steve did an awesome job with capturing every little detail including all of our ceremony, the grand entrances, the speeches, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, tons of dancing, and more. The guests hardly knew he was there, but when they did, he was so kind and helpful. Even leading up to the wedding, Steve was very easy to communicate with, even though we never met before the wedding day! I would absolutely recommend Steve for anyone looking to get an unforgettable video of your big day! Thank you again!
BJ did an excellent job editing my video, "Breaking the Silence of Bullying." He transformed what was basically raw footage with actors into a beautiful and intriguing film. BJ, a multi-talented film editor and musician, created a visually artistic film for me that will inspire and captivate audiences. Additionally, BJ maintained close communication with me through phone calls, mailings and emails. Responses to my questions and suggestions were professionally addressed. As my project neared closure, BJ consistently asked if I were satisfied with the final product and organized all pertinent materials for mailing to my home. I found working with BJ a pleasure. Because of his talents and creativity, I now have a film that I am eager and proud to present to any audience.
We hired Viktor to shoot our wedding in Malibu. He was the consummate professional in every way and far exceeded our hopes and expectations. He came early making sure he was ready and stayed longer than promised when we ran a bit later than anticipated. He was everywhere yet very inconspicuous. Based on what we saw in his portfolio, we are certain the finished project will be beautiful. We highly recommend Supernova Films and Viktor. We will update when the video comes in.
If i could give this guy and his team a 6 I definitely would! Their price is more than reasonable for the amount of work they put and the quality of pictures him and his team take are excellent. Mario was very nice, punctual and easy going through the whole photoshoot. He didn't make anything seem awkward and my boyfriend and i overall had a great time. Then came time for choosing the pictures, man there were so many to chose from that i even had to add an additional page to my album! Mario was very patience with my pickiness of the arrangements of the pictures and i can't be more than happy with the result. Highly recommended! Thanks again Our Legacy Photo & Cinema!!
Chris from Picture Perfect Cinema did an amazing job filming our entire wedding, from ceremony to reception! My husband, our families, and I were very impressed with the quality and outcome of the film! The video honestly looked like a Hollywood production! I couldn't recommend them enough! Chris was very professional and accommodating! Very easy to work with! I would highly recommend his services to anyone! Thanks Chris and Picture Perfect Cinema!
I had the pleasure of working with Fate Studios in December 2015 to film my proposal to my girlfriend and engagement photos immediately after. The experience was nothing short of amazing. David understood my anxiety for wanting to make this experience absolutely perfect for my girlfriend. I pitched my idea to him (which he loved) and made fantastic recommendations. The surprise was a success and the resulting footage is something my friends and family who weren't there were wowed by. The quality, music choice and edit was fantastic. Immediately after the proposal, we took engagement photos and provided fantastic ideas for poses and locations around Balboa Park. The pictures were gorgeous and I couldn't wait to share them on social media for all of my friends, family and strangers to see. David really is passionate not only about his work but is truly invested in the client and made sure to document a beautiful moment I will never forget. He made the experience fun and treated me as though I was not just a client but a real friend. The only way you can go wrong with Fate Studios is to NOT use their services. I will refer all friends and family to the fantastic company.
I worked with a small group of artists on a concepts photography project named 'Pas de Berlin' --the project took fourteen months to complete and we were often in Ande's company. She was an outstanding addition to the project: Ande was professional, kind, funny, upbeat, and did more than just makeup and hair; she had excellent advice and opinions throughout the project on nearly every aspect. She went above and beyond her role as MUAH; she filmed, edited, and shared a video promo of the project, created with work she captured from behind-the-scenes. Ande was also helpful to me, when it came to wardrobe and concepts; I frequently sought her advice as to line, color, and form and the project came together. Pas de Berlin has been invited to exhibit in five galleries over the last fourteen months, and has been well received from the Central Valley to Los Angeles. We are so grateful to have had the chance to work with Ande, and always look forward to working with her again.
We hired Scout to film our annual conference, and create a highlight video for our website. He did an exceptional job. The turn around time was quick, and the level of work was very high end. We will be hiring him again next year.

I've been film editing all my life, I have a great sense of what works
We stand out because of our storytelling ability.
I am a story person. I understand how to take footage, make a story using visuals and audio to tell a story. Pacing is the most important part of editing. I edit to the beat, make clean edits, color correct it, and upload it.
