    Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/the-last-push-sunny-alains-wedding-trailer/ Sunny’s pink bicycle and the last push… what a beautiful metaphor Sunny’s father shared. We have LOVED getting to know this family. So many laughs, so many cute moments shared. Sunny and Alain are SUPER down to earth and absolutely perfect for each other. One of my favorite things about them is their love for Detroit; special people know how great Detroit is. Mikki and her team from Mood Events are amazing. Period. I ALWAYS love working with her. We were happy to work with Jess and Nate again; their work is so inspiring. And of course our friend Simone Vitale was there to rock the night away… and that he did. We came away with some gorgeous footage and some really awesome stories. We’re really excited to share the rest… later. In the mean time, enjoy their wedding film trailer.

      Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/amber-andrews-same-day-edit-bay-harbor-mi/ I had such a fun time shooting this wedding. Aside from the fact that you can’t go wrong with anything shot in Bay Harbor, MI; Amber and Andrew, along with their family and friends were just a joy to be around. The love for God and for each other was so evident throughout the day, and it was so great to have been a part of it. Jason Baker, our editor for the day, has become known among wedding guests as being somewhat of a ‘myth’. They hear about this mysterious 4th person from Epic Motion, they see me take food and water back to him to keep him alive, but never actually spot him in action. It tends to become sort of the running joke at weddings. But it’s always a fun moment when the couple finally sees the edit and is thrilled about what they saw, and then they get to meet the mysterious Jason Baker for the first time. I have much respect for Jason and for our other same day editors, who work like madmen/women all day long to deliver a final creative edit of the couple’s story in the nick of time. I’m super happy with how this turned out, and Amber + Andrew, along with their guests seemed to love it as much as we did, which is of course a great feeling at the end of the day.

        Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/lauren-jeffs-same-day-edit/ I thoroughly enjoyed filming this wedding. Lauren + Jeff are two of my favorite people whose story I’ve had the privilege of shooting. Just super fun, and funny, easygoing – my favorite kind of people to work with. In getting to know them before their wedding day, I learned that they have quite a history together. They met in high school during a Halloween party. Lauren was dressed as an angel, and Jeff was dressed as a hula girl, complete with a hula skirt, coconut bra, and a wig; the color of which is still up for debate. 9 years later, they showed up dressed as a bride and groom to get hitched at what turned out to be a really beautiful event. I knew I wanted us to approach the Same Day Edit differently than we normally do. I wanted to really get their back story as a couple and incorporate their history leading up to their wedding day. So we spent some time with each of them individually, asking them to recall their past together and also what was going through their minds as they were hours away from getting married. I really think that having those story elements made for a really nice piece that was more than just about the wedding day itself, but about their story as a couple. Major props to Jason Baker, or fearless editor who pulled this piece off under much pressure, and to Stewart Smith and Marie Scheppman, our other ‘cinemagicians’ for the day whose expertise made for a great (and fun!) shoot. An additional thanks to the Henry Ford Museum whose staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, as well as Deyo Studio in Birmingham for being such great sports and letting us get the shots we needed while they did some seriously great makeup action.

          Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/he-made-himself-nothing-a-brittany-corey-vignette/ Every couple we film is really special to us is one way or another. As an editor, even though I don’t always get to meet and become friends with every couple whose wedding we film; by the time I finish their edit(s) I feel as though I know them, and I often take a piece of their story home with me in a sense. It’s the reason why weddings are so cool for us. The thrill is not in documenting an event from the sidelines, but it’s about experiencing such a pivotal and inspiring transition in the lives of two people alongside them, and being reminded of what marriage is about. Weddings serve as a reminder for me as a husband, to love and serve my wife and care for her and not to forget about romancing her in the midst of day-to-day life. And Brittany + Corey were yet another reminder for me. I loved the fact that they washed each other’s feet during the ceremony. It was different and it held a lot of meaning, and it was evident that Brittany + Corey really put their hearts into it. I knew I wanted to amplify that moment, and since there was music playing in the background during that part of the ceremony I couldn’t use the natural audio in the edit because it would clash with the soundtrack. So I decided I’d recreate a similar moment. I got my wife, and my H1 (audio recorder) and washed her feet to get those subtle sounds of water dripping that you hear in that part of the edit. Not only was it a way for me to really make that part of the edit exactly what I wanted it to be, but also a way for me to show Laura that I still think she’s pretty cool. Many props to our filmmakers for this one – Stewart Smith and Eric Kmetz. Our team is really happy with how this one turned out. Here’s to hoping you love it as much as we do! -John A Epic Motion is Detroit's leading event cinema and photography studio serving clients in Michigan, the Midwest and beyond.

              Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/nicole-chriss-wedding-film/ I’m so happy with how this film turned out. So many moments that were perfect. I really enjoyed getting to know Nicole and Chris and all of their little stories and jokes…. and songs. This little piece opens with a personalized diddy that everyone sang about “Mitt-dawg” and Nikki. Amazing. The 1979 wine. Love this bit that is referenced in the film… such a cute story of Dad saving a bottle of wine from 1979 (the year Nikki was born) to drink on her wedding day. Wowzers. Super cool. Special thanks to our friends Kathy Reid for making the day even awesomer and Ray Anthony for taking some killer pics.

                    Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/jessica-gerards-highlight-film/ This is the workplace relationship that worked. Gerard knew what he wanted and because of his charm and good looks – he finally got the girl :) I loved this wedding. You can feel the emotion in it. The vows, the speeches, the relationships… and the dancing: well – at least that one guy – oh man! Amazing. Annnnd… I almost fell off a golf cart and caught on fire from some sparklers… all because duty called. I love my job. Said so eloquently by her sister, ”You have been such an inspiration to me…” When love is a part of your core, you inspire others. Jessica and Gerard: you have that at your core.

                      Original post located here: http://epicmotion.com/wedding-videos/jessica-johns-main-feature-111111/ Love this little film (and please be aware of a few bleeped words from the best man during the toast)… these two are great. Jessica and John first heard about us through their friends (and former clients of ours) Alicia and David circa 2010 :) and told us they HAD to have a same day edit. After seeing some sample Main Features, they decided they wanted a Main Feature, too. And here’s what they had to say: We absolutely love the main feature!! It turned out incredibly amazing… you guys do such great work!! You never cease to impress! Thank you and your team again for everything. I am still just so amazed at how wonderful all of your videos are… and especially ours. We definitely had initial hesitations about spending all this money on a wedding film but it was the best decision we made and you guys are worth every penny. It is such an honor to have our work held in such high regard and we are so glad to have crafted this piece for the two of them. Congrats and thanks for taking the risk, Jessica and John!
