Focal Point Digital Media Wedding Video
About this pro
One thing that truly sets us apart from our competition is the fact that we only solicit weddings, and nothing else. We've tried since 2004 to be excellent at one thing, rather than decent at many. Being highly specialized and deeply experienced with weddings specifically is a HUGE benefit considering it's a live event that we don't control and we only get one chance to nail the shot! We have to be able to predict where to be, when to be there, and be quick-thinking enough to have it all come together in an instant, which is a type of pressure that less experienced and less specialized studios simply cannot perform as well under. What we're doing seems to be working, as the readers of Oregon Bride magazine have voted us "Best Videographer Statewide" for 9 consecutive years, from 2009-2017! I love that fact that what I do truly matters, even if just to one family. A wedding film won't change the world, but it certainly can mean the world to a couple as the years go on. It's so rewarding to see our clients' reactions the first time the view their completed film... it definitely make the late night editing sessions worth it!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's not complicated at all: 1/3 is due as the retainer at booking, 1/3 is due 2 weeks before the wedding, and the final 1/3 is due upon completion of the project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Generally we'll meet at our studio and/or via phone to get to know one another and ensure that we're a good fit, then later on we'll typically do a second in-person meeting a few weeks prior to the filming date to go over the final itinerary together so that we're on the same page prior to the big day.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In addition to attaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts, I regularly attend national filmmakers conferences including WPPI, IN[FOCUS] and WEVA, as well as numerous smaller seminars. With video technology constantly changing it's essential to invest time, money and effort to keep on top of the game!
