Announcing the Premiere of ZOMBIE DAZE: A Super 8 B&W Short Film

Posted on Oct 10, 2016 in Austin film scene, filmmaking, films, movies & film, Nostalgia Film | Comments Off on Announcing the Premiere of ZOMBIE DAZE: A Super 8 B&W Short Film

During September and October, students of Austin School of Film and HIVE Arts Collective shot, hand-processed, telecined, and edited their own Super 8mm films. I was inspired to make my first zombie film, starring my good friend Rachael, my partner Victor, my dad, and my toddler daughter, as well as about 15 awesome local Pflugerville residents who came out and gave it their all as our horde of zombies. The result, a film called “Zombie Daze,” premieres online for the first time today! It premiered at the Austin School of Film Friday night to a fun, enthusiastic crowd.

Do let us know what you think!

And happy October and Halloween!

A beautiful couple in a gorgeous lakeside location led to some truly beautiful Super 8 film. Their wedding day was saturated in color: from Elena’s stunning wedding dress to the rich details of the festivities! This wedding went perfectly thanks to Ren at 36th Street Events, and the party was rocking thanks to Joel at Greenbelt DJ Productions.

Mazel Tov Elena & Russell!

Molly and Jaime remind me how much I love filming weddings! Warm, creative, eclectic, fun — their wedding was all of these things! A pair of teachers who met in Bogotá, Columbia, where they live, they hosted an amazing wedding celebration in Molly’s parents’ backyard in Austin, Texas. Filled with color, unique touches, and lots of music (Jaime and his friends are talented musicians!), their day was a joy to capture on a mix of Super 8 film and HD video. See for yourself below! Also check out their team of talented vendors including Yellow Umbrella Events, Erica Gray Beauty, Gypsy Floral, and Lisa Woods Photography (photos from there day, here)

Congratulations Molly & Jaime and ¡Felicitaciones!

Super 8mm Cinematography at Ma Maison: Laura + Noah

Posted on Feb 18, 2015 in films, general, Nostalgia Film, real weddings, super 8, super 8 weddings, wedding videography Austin, wedding videography hill country, wedding videography Texas, weddings | Comments Off on Super 8mm Cinematography at Ma Maison: Laura + Noah

Laura and Noah’s wedding day combined New York chic with the best that Austin and the Hill Country have to offer!

They chose an amazing venue, Ma Maison, and combined that with food from both East Side King during cocktails and The Salt Lick. They had a long, relaxed cocktail hour with Milkdrive providing the musical backdrop and an amazing reception orchestrated by Bird Dog Wedding, who I’d been dying to work with. I also finally got to work with photographer (and fellow analog film lover) Suzi Q. Varin of Q Weddings to capture their day!

Many congrats Laura & Noah!
