Photos + Video - Andres' 1st | Cowboys, Cowgirls, and Cake

In late November we had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with a couple of our good friends to celebrate Andres. This first birthday had a cowboy/on the farm theme and was complete with pony rides, barns, and farm animals. A really great day for a outdoor party, though a bit on the windy side, as we all noticed during the lighting of the candles lol! One of the main activities, and even a party favor, was of their own creations. Frames were constructed and bags were colored by the guest own hands. As for our hands, I did the filming while Ileana setup shop for photo area where the kids received their 4x6 photo of themselves before they left (shout-out to CVS-lol).

A great celebration that we hopefully captured through photo and video.

#FlavorFest2011 - Promos Promos Promos

Ah, the month of September was a busy one for us as we were preparing for the biggest national conference to hit the Tampa Bay area. Ileana and myself serve as leaders of the media department at Crossover Church. Flavor Fest is the name of the conference and we were in our 11th year, 2nd year in the new digs. Conference is mainly geared for those who are in urban ministry, youth ministry, Pastors, leaders in their Church, artist and producers who are in the Christian Hip Hop industry. At night the campus was open to the public to experience the concerts, bboy jam, DJ expo and many vendors. It was a joy for the both of us to become a part of this conference. During the day we co-lead a track called "How'd They Do That" along with iAMSpec.com . Ileana's night consist of being the lead video producer which most of her time was in the both making sure video were looking good and online stream was a go. My action packed night was focused on filming the Recap video as well as getting artist interviewed for SOUL Mag TV. That's right, ibcreative, The SOUL Mag, and Flavor Fest teamed up to get production going on a pilot for a TV show pitch to a couple major networks.

This 1st video is the 2nd Promo for Flavor Fest 2011. The promo was mainly to showcase the idea behind the UNiTE theme while highlighting the speakers. Wanted to create something simple and different. Had a hard time finding a track for this video, that would have been the one I would have changed on it...many people actually liked it with it. I guess it grew on me!

Compiled footage over the weekend. This Next Day Edit (NDE) spanned from Friday to Saturday and was then shown 1st service Sunday morning. For better words, I didn't sleep at all...well, there were a couple 10-15min power naps to "refuel"...it was an interesting morning in our hotel room to say the least lol!

Here are some shots of the weekend:

Snagging a few shots...

BTS - This was during the community outreach. Look out for this shot! I won't say how long it took for me to clear this tray...but it took a while :/

The last video is a promo for next year's conference. The footage was actually from the 1st video which is also from the pilot of SOUL Mag TV. We shot Pastor Tommy aka Urban D on location in Downtown Tampa. During the time that we were there I grabbed some b-roll footage of Tampa. My intentions were to use it for the pilot and to come back later to grab more around town. I most likely will still make a day to film and hit up all the various landmarks of Tampa. But for now, what I got worked for this promo. Throw in some color scroll, fresh text, trippy editing, hard hitting dubstep and you got yourself a pretty awesome promo!

 

Like I said before, be on the look later this Fall/Winter for SOUL Mag TV. We look good together lol!

S/O to my hommie Joesph from Elements Church in BX, NY for blessing me with the Gorillapod!! Got to chop it up after the track we lead and later on that weekend. Total surprise, helped out a ton that's for sure, God is good!

Oh...almost forgot...this is me the next day after I turned in the RECAP video. Didn't even make it out of the sound booth lol...this is sad...

Sabrina + Phillip

Sabrina + Phillip is one of the those couples that reminds you of when you first met that special someone...you know, that "I-get-butterflies-every-time-your-near-me" type of feeling. The love that they share for each other is one that everyone in the room will notice just by the way they look at each other. This day was full of joy and celebration of their union. One of my favorite details of this day was the cake, so gorgeous! It was a beautiful, fun wedding that was shared with family and friends. It was an honor to document this destination wedding with both film and photography. The wedding took place at the Powel Crosly Estate in Sarasota, Florida.

We know the best is yet to come for this couple and we only wish them he best.

Blessings!

Yesterday we had the privilege of filming and photographing Sabrina and Philip Bixby's wedding. This vintage style wedding was held in Sarasota, FL at the Crosley Estate. For some strange reason I randomly woke up this morning at 8am having went to sleep at 2am....weird I know! So I swapped my lack of sleep with the opportunity of productivity and found these awesome flicks. Film and lots more photos to come. Consider this your sneak peek, enjoy!
