“I think because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Colour is distracting in a way; it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart”

- Kim Hunter on emotive expression through B+W film.



Hello There everyone!


Hope you're all doing soundly, and keeping safe.


We've been toying with the idea of black and white edits for a little while now and after doing a shorter instagram edit we decided to test it out on our most recent wedding.


Here's a little look back at Jade and Sam's gorgeous winter celebrations at the beautiful Low Hall in the Lake District; this time in gorgeous, moody, romantic monotone.




Black and white lends itself so well to wedding films; without the 'distraction' of colour you concentrate more on what's going on in the frame, you can push the contrast more (promise I won't get too technical) which adds to the drama and suspense, and in our opinion looks uber romantic and timeless.


All of our packages come with a few beautiful prints of stills from your film, and our black and white package will come with even more on delivery. Have a look at some from Jade and Sam's day below...






Don't get us wrong, colour is super important for your wedding day (and decisions on colour of everything are not to be taken lightly) which is why we're offering black and white edits as an optional add on to your package. We understand it won't be for everyone, but if you want to have a chat about adding one to your package, then do let us know!


Have a wonderful day everyone

Hello There everyone!


A couple of nights ago we organised a quiz with some friends.

There are a whole host of things you can do online over things like Zoom, Google Hangouts, Messenger etc, such as quizzes!

We thought we'd make our own (so our friends can't cheat!) so came up with the following -


* Each team had to send something creative to do with Easter to gain entry to the quiz


* An activity round - 5 activities, for example, get a photo wearing a pair of gloves and holding a knife and fork (this got rather hectic!)


* Who am I - describe a person in a few sentences and the teams had to guess who we were referring to


* A movie round, where we (and some friends - thanks for sending them through!) made clues for the movie title


* Missing Link - we named 5 famous people, and the teams had to guess what the link was between them all


and I think that about covered it - it certainly kept us busy for a while and was an ace way to chat to everyone, and also have a bit of fun!


There are *endless* possibilities to what you can do (activity round was a personal favourite of ours!) and coupled with chatting to friends online, it was a great way to spend Easter Sunday.


Let us know what ways you're passing the time with friends! Quizzes are a great way to interact, albeit it strangely over the internet.


I feel we're kind of getting used to it a little now, and getting a little easier.


Take care everyone and hope you're all having a good week so far!

Happy Easter weekend everyone!

How's everyone doing? Currently the sun is shining and we're on our second BBQ of the year, which makes us *very* happy.

So last year we made an Easter video for the niblings...

Noun. nibling (plural niblings) (uncommon) The child of one's sibling or of one's sibling-in-law (in other words, one's niece or nephew) ... where they took part in an Easter egg hunt. Obviously this year we can't take part in such an event so we've decided to make a video about us hearing the Easter bunny, and almost seeing it, in our backyard, and then discovering some treats that he or she has left for us to find! It was ace to play out, and here's a little BTS of what we got up to.


The point in this episode is that you can make your own videos on your phone - shoot, edit and upload. Easy peasy. Yes, we have lots of video equipment at home, but you can do so much on your phone just through some apps. Here's a few apps that are available for download from the app store - Splice https://apps.apple.com/us/app/splice-video-editor-maker/id409838725 Magisto https://apps.apple.com/us/app/magisto-video-editor/id486781045 InShot https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/magisto-video-editor/id486781045 Video Editor https://apps.apple.com/us/app/video-editor/id1438312320 VivaVideo https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vivavideo-video-maker-editor/id738897668 Imovie https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/imovie/id377298193 Adobe Premiere https://apps.apple.com/us/app/adobe-premiere-rush-for-video/id1188753863 as well as a whole host of others. Have a go and let us know how you get on! Anyways. Let us know how you're getting creative this Easter weekend! We hope everyone has a great one, but most of all, a safe one. Stay home if you can. Lots can be done to keep us busy, go find a bunny in your yard! Take care everyone x #HelloThereFilms www.hellotherefilms.com
