5 Wedding Filmmakers To Watch In 2019

5 Wedding Filmmakers To Watch In 2019


– Hey guys, my name is Matt Johnson and every month on my YouTube channel, I host a wedding film review livestream, where I watch and review wedding films that have been submitted by many of you. And I feel like every livestream has some mind blowing wedding films
that are being created by wedding filmmakers that
not many people know about and that doesn’t feel right to me. I should not be the only
one that knows about these awesome wedding filmmakers. So today, I want to share with
you five wedding filmmakers that I think you should
be watching in 2019 and to be clear, I do not think
that these are necessarily the best wedding filmmakers in the world or anything like that but I do think that these wedding filmmakers
are bringing new creativity and ideas to wedding filmmaking and I’m hoping that they
will be just a little bit more popular after you watch this video. All right, in no particular order, please keep that in mind, the first wedding filmmaker
that I think you should be watching in 2019 is Derek
Chan of Derek Chan Films. He submitted a wedding
film for me to review in my livestream several
months ago and usually when I review films, I watch
a minute or so at a time, then I pause it and I give feedback. Derek submitted this multiple
day long, sick wedding film and the visuals and editing were so good that I didn’t pause it
for like half the film. It was just so enjoyable to watch. Usually multiple day weddings are so hard to make flow well in an edit
because there are so many different moments over all the days that you need to feature. But Derek made this seamlessly
flowing wedding film that went from one day to the
other and it was fantastic. Up next we have Hayden
Goldsworthy of Silverworth Films. I still don’t know why he
didn’t go with Goldsworth Films because of his last name
but I’m glad he’s keeping in the precious metals category. If I had to describe his films, I would say, what’s a tier above gold? Platinum, titanium, titaniumworth, yes, they are that good. Hayden also submitted a
wedding film a few months ago that I absolutely loved. My favorite thing about
it is that he not only had audio of the bride and
groom on their wedding day but he also filmed interviews
with both the bride and the groom’s parents
and this really brought depth to the story of the couple
and to their relationship. I absolutely love watching Hayden’s films. Anytime I’m scrolling through Facebook and one of them pops up, I
immediately stop scrolling, I’m like, I need to watch this right now and I am never disappointed. Third on the list is a
company that is actually not that up and coming,
they’ve been filming weddings for quite awhile and
they actually just won a Love Stories TV award so
you may have heard of them but they’re some of my
favorite wedding filmmakers and I want more people to watch them so they get a shout out as well. They are Grace and Andrew of
Bottlebrush Films in Australia. This duo wins the award
for people that I would just like to hang out with
because their sense of humor and quirkiness is so
strong that their films ooze with their funkiness. I realize that sounds weird
but their film are weird in such a good way. I feel like these two are so
good at attracting couples that are exuberant and reverent and in editing their wedding films well to show that humorous side. And maybe it’s just because
they’re from Australia but I wish we had more
couples in the U.S.A. that were like that. Bottlebrush, more like making Matt gush with love and affection. That was weird, okay. Two more left. Up next we have a group
of wedding filmmakers from a country that I never
knew that I wanted to visit until they submitted a
wedding film to my livestream and I realized, that country’s beautiful, I need a vacation there immediately. From Poland, this company is
called Best Friends Weddings. They submitted a wedding
film for me to review on my livestream awhile ago and much like how I reacted
to Derek Chan’s films, where I just watched
their film and loved it and didn’t even pause it
because I was blown away by their talent, they
have some of the prettiest GH5 footage I’ve ever seen and I say that to someone
who really likes GH5 footage. Also, their music selection and editing makes their wedding films
so enjoyable to watch. Thanks to them, I now
want to visit Poland, hopefully sometime in 2020. Last, but certainly not
least is a wedding filmmaker and YouTuber from here
in Texas, just like me. Austin Black from Ocular Pop. Austin submitted a film
for my monthly livestream. I watched it, enjoyed
it and then afterwards, I learned that he shot it solo and I was like, wait, I know
I was seeing multiple angles of things happening. How is he doing this
without a second shooter? Is he just running really
fast or something like that? Well, Austin is breaking new ground by dual-wielding Sony A7III’s. Yes, one in each hand and I hear you now probably thinking Matt, that’s ridiculous. But hear me out. It actually works and it looks good. I legitimately thought that
he had a second shooter. I did not understand
how he could be filming that wedding solo. If you are wanting to see
someone trying new things in the world of wedding filmmaking, I would definitely recommend
checking out Austin’s work. He even has a video on his YouTube channel where he talks about
dual-wielding and breaks down his technique for doing it. So, should be pretty helpful especially if you are a solo shooter. I would definitely recommend watching that because hey, maybe you don’t need a second shooter after
all, that’s pretty cool. And that is my list of five filmmakers that you should be watching in 2019. I will be sure to link to
all of these filmmakers down in the video description
if you want to watch any of their wedding films. Also, let me know what
you thought about this. Did you like this video? Was this enjoyable for me to ramble about wedding filmmakers that I like? Should I make more videos
like this in the future? Also, what wedding filmmakers
should I be watching? Please leave me a comment
and let me know below. Lastly, if you would like
to submit a wedding film for me to review in my monthly wedding film review livestream, you can click the link

newsletter and I will email you whenever I am
scheduling the next livestream. I also just released a course called Wedding Film Framework. The details, my entire
work flow for how I edit story driven wedding films
in Adobe Premier Pro. I would love it if you would check it out at weddingfilmframework.com. Thanks so much for watching
