Long Distance Love Story Film

We met up with Shallu + Chirag a few weeks before their wedding weekend. We talked about doing something fun to introduce themselves to their families…big families on their wedding day. We thought doing a love story shoot would be the perfect way to tell their story! We played a mini clip before they were introduced at their wedding receptions in Detroit and Atlanta. We’re so excited to finally share their full love story! Enjoy!

Firebird Tavern | Greektown Detroit

Happy Short Film Friday! As part of our Your Story Is Yours promotion we selected four businesses to receive a cinematic business film. Over the next couple weeks we will be finishing up production of their films. This weeks' cinematic business film is Firebird Tavern. Constructed in the early 1880’s, this 120+ year-old building has been restored to enhance the handcrafted woodwork and exposed brick while also adding some modern touches like WiFi and HD flatscreen TV’s; all of which we have grown to love and expect in today’s establishments. This historic building originally housed a saloon operating under multiple owners for the first 20-30 years of its existence. As the years passed and the name of the street changed from Croghan to Monroe St, an auto upholstery shop, a local cafe and an authentic barber shop all called 419 Monroe street home. After some careful restoration and slight modernization, we feel we brought the building back full circle to its original purpose and are proud to give you the Firebird Tavern.“speramus meliora, resurget cineribus.” – “we hope for better things, it will rise from the ashes.”

2014 Wish Ball Highlights

This highlight film features Celebrity Emily at The Wish Ball last Saturday. She greeted and signed autographs for her adoring fans as she arrived at MGM Grand Detroit. Before being presented with the 8,000th Wish granted by Make-A-Wish Michigan, she put on an amazing performance of one of her favorite songs!

Same Day Film

Select Film

Up North Wedding

Britt and Marty’s Same Day Wedding Film was a collaborative effort between 97 Films and Visual Impact Studios. Shaun and I thought it would be a great idea to surprise Britt and Marty with a Same Day Film. Well...they were surprised! Their reaction was priceless, they had no idea.

The wedding took place at Lovells Museum in Lovells, Michigan (near Hartwick Pines State Park). Thank you Judy from Fullers North Branch Outing Club for letting us edit in the dining room of your bed and breakfast.
