about

Based in Cape Town, serving destinations world-wide. We’re a small team of international cinematographers with a love of story-telling and a total disregard for formula. We’re driven by the possibility of capturing authentic experiences. There is no shelf.

We’d love to tell your story. Get in touch and tell us where and when your dream will unfold.

 

How long does it take?

That depends.

We try to turn things around within 10 weeks of the wedding, but at peak times, this can be as long as 4 months. Quality takes time, and we strictly adhere to a “first in, first out” policy.

Can I choose my own music?

The short answer? No. We go through exhaustive music searches (sometimes lasting days) looking for exactly the right tracks for your film. Something that expresses your personality and fits right in. You may absolutely send us your favourite choices to give us inspiration, but the most important thing here is that we pay legal royalties for the music we use. This means that we choose from the vast sea of music we are able to license commercially (so yeah, no Coldplay tracks).

Although many other companies do take this risk, we feel it is both immoral and illegal. There are precedents set in our industry that have led to expensive legal battles.

Bottom line? We have NEVER done anything but delight our clients with music that they treasure and videos they can share anywhere online with pride. If you happen to not like the piece we’ve chosen, we’ll happily keep looking until the music is perfect.

What do we need?

Your trust and that you let us into your world.

How long will it take?

It depends. Quality takes time, and thats hopefully what brought you here. Generally we run a backlog of up to 10 weeks for a highlights video. We do our best to get you your film ASAP, and keep you informed every step of the way. We take a lot of pride in our post-production.
