Initially I wasn’t going to have a videographer at our wedding….I thought we could do without and I am genuinely so grateful that I changed my mind as I was completely wrong!! I was concerned that a camera poking at my face all day would stress me (I am not great at getting my photo taken and being on camera). However, Rob at Curious Robin films made the experience so calm and unobtrusive, I hardly realised I was being filmed which made the experience all so easy and comfortable.

Our wedding video still has me in tears almost 4 years later, every single time I watch it. After all the planning and organising we went through to get it right, Rob really captured the essence of our day in a way that no photograph could. With the perfect choice of music and even the details like using the old vintage camera. Every time I watch it I feel like I’m transported back to that day and experiencing it all over again and for that exact reason, I just can’t recommend Curious Robin Films highly enough.

This week we’ve been diving into the technicalities of our wedding film aesthetics. As you’ll know from our previous post, we’ve just upgraded to a new camera. The Sony a7sii is more capable than the Canon DSLRs we shot with in many areas but one novel one is its dynamic range and picture profiles. We […]

Top 10 Christmas Movies – as determined by a 30-something bloke

Posted by on Dec 25, 2017 in General Chat | No Comments

Christmas, the season of good cheer, feasting, terrible office secret Santa and evergreen movies. Here at the Robin’s Nest, we are massive Christmas movies fans. Mainly because they a.) are usually joyous; and b.) often hugely profound (well some are). They’ve even perhaps subtly influenced our editing when it comes to winter weddings. So here, […]

Dunkirk, the most anticipated film of the summer, seems to be something of a marmite film for the critics. But we’re going to lay our cards on the table and say that it is one of the finest films made in the last decade. Marmite film? It seems that this film either grabs you, or […]

Wedding videography is the place to be if you want to learn quickly. The pressure of needing to catch the moments, exposed and composed well, is intense. It is run’n’gun at its purest.
