Working with you, Phil, was a fantastic experience for our parish. You brought a true passion to your work and a desire to tell the story of our parish's 50 years with both beautiful cinematography and words which truly captured the spirit of our faith community. You far exceeded our expectations and produced for us a short documentary that is a treasure now and will remain so for future generations of the St. James the Apostle Parish. Thank you for giving us far more than we could ever have imagined. We have been blessed by your creativity, giftedness and professionalism.

Kevin is awesome! His videos are amazing. He is definitely a hidden gem! He was quick in his responses. Got me the highlight video within a week after the wedding and got the full video to me super fast. He is a fantastic cinematographer, his techniques and skills are way above a lot of others!

Dan and I worked together on my short film project Catching Broken Glass. Dan was the assistant director, cinematographer as well editor and sound. What impressed the most was Dan's endless knowledge of his craft and that he's constantly learning and looking for ways to continually perfect his craft. As far as time is concerned. Dan would always come early enough to set up up his equipment. I am certainly looking forward to the final cut so I begin entering my project for the 2015 film festivals.

WOW!!! What an Experience!!!!!!!! To all the men out there this review is for you! So here is how it worked for me. My future wife wanted a videographer? First question for me was cost and looking at what the company Amor in Motion had done previously so I could get an idea of what we would be getting for the price. Of course she wanted it so I agreed to have Amor in Motion video our day. I am from Texas and our wedding was planned for Chicago which was a way out of my comfort zone but after seeing the city I was blown away and very excited. Next step for me went like this; my soon to be wife and I meet Israel Vazquez at a designated location specifically at a Starbucks to have coffee, I was not really looking forward to this because I was just seeing dollar signs. Israel showed up and started asking us questions. My mind set quickly changed and I got very excited. Israel and his team sounded amazing and he dove right into our story and was excited himself for the opportunity. After our conversation we all laughed and hugged and went on our merry way. Months went by getting all the wedding stuff ready and I really never thought about the videographer again until the wedding day. I remember on the wedding day the one guy that seemed missing was Israel, being from Texas and he and Jason/Marcie from Jason Adrian Photography were the only people I knew from Chicago. I was getting ready for our big day and bam there he was, I went over to him gave him a big hug he smiled and made me feel at home. At that point I was ready for everything to happen and was super excited for the day! All things were now in place and we were ready to say “I DO”! During the wedding and festivities Amor in Motion was all over the place taking shoots. They were like long lost friends that had traveled to be a part of our day as well. I a sense they felt like family! Amazing! Then we got our video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy Chicago it is the most amazing phenomenal piece of art work that I could have ever hoped for! Honestly I had a few people that I really wanted to be in the video that were guests and each one of them made it! I never gave them a list of names, pointed anyone out or anything. The Amor in Motion team picked up on the love throughout the day and knew exactly who needed to be in the video. I cannot say enough about Israel and his crew! Still blown away by the experience! Of course so then the money thing! I never touched on that again. After we got our video and I saw the finished product. WOW!!!! Trust me guys you will get what you pay for and then some! After seeing the finished product I believe that Amor in Motion is worth every single penny!!!! To the Amor in Motion team: You guys are a class act in my book, great job the day would not have been the same without you! Special thanks to Israel you are genius and thank you, hugs! Everyone at Amor in Motion you all captured the day perfectly, brought the emotion to life, and represented the love of our lives and our day! Thank You Amor in Motion for capturing our dream and making it a reality that we will cherish for the rest of our lives! If you are looking for a videographer and you are reading my review! You have found them. Stop looking at other companies, checking prices, debating on if they are the right choice! Amor in Motion is the choice for you and they will blow you away!

Amazing photographers! We had the pleasure of K and N media shooting our wedding at the Millar Chapel in Evanston,IL. They were both professional and creative at all times. They also took pictures at the Lake front in evanston and at our reception in Niles,IL. They we both timely and ready to capture our moments at every site . The final product of our wedding photos were amazing, professional, and high quality photos. They captured our day perfectly! They also had a fast turn around time getting the photos back to us. We would recommend booking K and N media for any photography.

Mason is a superb cinematographer. He's got a sharp eye for shots, knows how to get in and get em, and is an excellent communicator. He's highly creative but very flexible--he's able to either work with your idea or come up with one of his own and see it through to completion. Highly recommend him for any filming jobs you have!

I cannot say enough good things about Tom and Blink of an Eye Productions. He originally did my sister's wedding video in 2009--a video we STILL watch time and time again at family gatherings. He did such a great job that I knew I'd want him to do my own wedding video (even 6 years later)! For starters, Tom is an absolute professional! He was on time; prepared; well-dressed (my bridesmaids were swooning over him!); and so accommodating. By far one of my best vendors! He was perfect the day of my wedding, as was his other cinematographer (TIP: Hire the 2nd cinematographer for the day so both Bride/Groom can have constant video coverage). I swear he’s like a ninja because he would blend in with the crowd and always maintain the perfect distance to allow us to experience our special wedding moments, while being able to capture it all the same. Most of the time I forgot he was even there. He also chose to stay and film my wedding at least an hour later than we agreed because he wanted to make sure he had everything he needed to guarantee our satisfaction. That detail alone would make me choose Tom over every other videographer. It’s simple, he CARES about his clients and their happiness. He isn’t there to just get some shots, leave, and make a stock video of your wedding. He’s an artist who is constantly inspired by his surroundings and wants to be sure he has everything he needs to deliver a product that is tailor made to each Bride and Groom. What more could you ask for?? Not only was Tom great to work with on the day of our wedding, but he was wonderful both pre and post wedding. He is super on top of things and has great communication with the client. And the end product (our wedding video) was nothing short of spectacular. I have NO idea how he took our 10+ hour day and edited it so beautifully. He has an amazing talent for detail and edits together your best moments to create a seamless story that you want to watch again and again. He captured moments that I didn’t even know existed. As a person in the film industry, I have a very high bar for quality of film. Tom surpassed my expectations and delivered my wedding in an art form that I can forever cherish. I am beyond grateful for all of his efforts. Because of him, I have the great pleasure of being able to relive the happiest day of my life anytime I please. Do yourself a favor and hire Tom to capture your wedding day! I guarantee he will end up being one of your favorite vendors, too!

Warwick was great to work with. He arrived to shoot our video at O'Hare Airport here in Chicago. He gave us some wonderful tips and even helped to write our opening and closing lines. The final video, after editing, turned out just perfect! We will definitely be using him again for future projects.

I was incredibly nervous to hire vendors off of thumbtack due to one very poor experience but Vanessa made the entire experience one to remember. She and her husband are completely professional and do outstanding work. They were a joy to have around on my special day; very sweet, patient and respectful of the photographers which went a long way to having happy vendors all the way around. I couldn't be happier with our extended highlight video and 60 minute video. She was quick to respond throughout the process even after we were done which I loved. Choose Forty One Films, their work speaks for itself!

About

I graduated from Columbia College with a BA in Cinematography and have been pursuing my dreams in the videography and cinematography fields. Though one day I would enjoy to be a cinematographer of feature films, I enjoy doing videography work for small events and helping on small budget shorts when and where I can.

I am an aspiring cinematographer. I have this passion for arts, and I want to bring my ideas and vision to something people can appreciate. Seeing things in a creative way is one of my qualities that will surely justify the meaning of beauty. Capturing life's moments would be the best work I could see in myself.
