We always enjoy seeing wedding videos that capture the beauty and love between couples. We’re excited to share work from Artworks Video today! Husband and wife team, Cheryl and Steve, create beautiful wedding films that tell the unique story of each couple’s wedding day. Get to know more about Artworks Video in our Q&A with Cheryl below.
What inspired you to start your business?
I originally was attending film school to be a computer animator and dreamed of working on animated feature films. As part of our curriculum, I took a video production course and I just flat out fell in love with video editing and from that point forward was determined to figure out how to make it my life’s work.
What options for customization do you offer?
We basically have a generalized package that includes what we feel most of our clients have asked for through the years. We build upon that core package anything and everything that our couples want to make it suit their particular needs.
If you could give one tip to couples who are planning a wedding, what would it be?
Aside from hiring a cinematographer? Hire at least a day of wedding planner! I can’t tell you how many times the poor photographer has had to take on that role because there was not a wedding planner. It also reduces the stress of the bride on the day of. But … be careful and make sure your planner isn’t a “timeline” planner. The timeline is great to have, but it should be flexible and allow for delays and setbacks. Having a wedding planner become overly anxious because you are not adhering to their idea of the timeline is no stress reliever for sure.
What is something that most people don’t know about your biz/you?
Not many secrets here with our business … we are pretty straight forward and want to make sure there are no surprises for our couples. But an interesting tidbit of information about me is that I have an identical twin sister. I’m the artist and she’s an accountant!
What is your one must-have item/product/tool to have on-hand when you’re working?
Stablization equipment (monopod, tripod, etc.) You don’t see a whole lot of un-intentional camera shake in feature films, so I wouldn’t want it to show up in our client’s work either.
If you had to choose one word (or phrase) to describe yourself/your business what would it be?
