Dancing in the Kitchen
We were recently hired by a family to capture their parent’s love story. During the interview, a story was told about a time they went to a dance at the White House. We asked about the kind of dances popular at the time. The couple said, “would you like us to show you?” This couple in their late 70s, married over 50 years, were suddenly newlyweds again. Dancing together, sing along to Elvis, right there in their kitchen – thankfully with cameras rolling.
The week before we filmed Home to Sweet Home moving a client into their new space. We captured everything from the empty space to hanging pictures on the wall. Showing what they do for their clients. But nothing was as powerful as when their client came in to see their space all set up for the first time and with so much joy said, “It looks like I’ve always lived here” Hugs and tears were exchanged, again – thankfully with cameras rolling.
For us, this is what the job is all about. And in these moments, when I know we have captured something that is truly going to touch the audience I always get excited and can’t believe I get to do this for a living.
Yes, video is technical and that can intimidate people. But no matter what, every video is really about the story. Sharing something genuine with your audience. And if you are someone who is intimidated by the technical side, please do not worry – all you have to do is bring the stories and we will keep the cameras rolling.
