A Langham Hotel, Pasadena Same Day Edit

It’s always an honor getting to work alongside my fellow videographers like Ning from Ning Wong Studios. He asked me to assist in editing a same day edit this past weekend. The wedding was held at the gorgeous Langham Hotel in Pasadena, CA. Amazing couple, gorgeous day, perfect wedding. Congratulations, Cesar and Melanie Ramos!

Vicki and Eugene’s Love Story Filming Still Frames

I had so much fun the other day filming day one of Vicki and Eugene’s Love Story. They have such an amazing story to tell and I’m just so excited to work on this project! I met them for the first time this past weekend and noticed right away how much love they have for each other. After I reviewed my footage, I realized that I have to share the images that came from their shoot. I can’t wait for their wedding in June when they’ll have their love story film debut in front of their friends and family. If this was a hollywood movie, you will find it on Netflix under the Romantic Comedy section ๐Ÿ™‚

Teaching Art

It’s always an amazing feeling when you teach art to kids who are eager and willing to learn. I started of by showing them the basics of drawing, shading and blending. In the end, they were able to create a beautiful black and white portrait. At first they didn’t have a clue as to what they’re drawing since I only gave them a small piece of the portrait. Each person was in charge to replicate that each little square that they pulled out of a cup. But the looks on their faces when they finally saw the completed artwork together is priceless. It was an awesome day overall. Can you recognize who the person is? If you answered Angelina Jolie, you’re right! Not bad for my first time teaching a large group with limited art skills, right? ๐Ÿ™‚
