01.12.2009 Who Loves Movies?

It’s not every day that you find someone who is as passionate about the same things as you are.  In that respect, Zeus and I feel so lucky to have found each other.  For us, we are most alive when we are creating and coming up with new ideas.  We talk about our ideas for hours.  Seriously… hours.  And we draw a lot of inspiration from watching movies.  But not just watching movies, we try to look at it from the director’s perspective and how he/she was able to convey the story, especially through use of camera placement and movement.  When we shoot weddings, we can’t control the details: lighting, colors, props, actors.  But we like to film as if we do.  The way we see it- every wedding has a tone just like every movie has a tone.  The more styles we learn about in movies, the more we can bring out the personalities of our clients.  

As a film major from Wellesley College, I got the chance to study some great films.  Some good, some bad, some… interesting.  So, in our quest to keep learning, we are dedicating ourselves to watching one movie a week.  And for those of you who love movies as much as we do, we’ll pass them on to you.  Old, new, bizarre, frightening, all countries, all genres.  If you watch them or if you’ve seen them already, we’d love to hear your thoughts.  We are also open to suggestions!  We hope you enjoy.  Expect our first pick later this week.
