The Oscars for wedding videos are back! On Thursday, May 12th, we hosted an exclusive event that was both a celebration and an opportunity to share and discuss issues facing the wedding filmmaker industry right now.
We kicked things off with a keynote presentation by our founder and CEO, Rachel Jo Silver, where she discussed the results of our State of the Industry survey. This included points on what filmmakers are charging, how many bookings can be expected per year and more. She also touched on the relevant topics on everyone’s minds due to the recent health crisis like how many clients have had to reschedule their weddings and how much has changed in terms of revenue.
This was followed with a panel and Q&A with esteemed filmmakers Lindsey Conklin of Le Rêve Films, Henry Martens of The Brothers Martens and Molly Agnes of Love Story Films. They discussed things that had been brought up in the survey, plus what wedding filmmakers can look ahead to. Rachel and the filmmakers gave helpful tips and answered question live from our engaged filmmaker audience.
Finally, we brought out the cocktails and announced the 2020 Wedding Film Awards winners. You can see all the winning videos here.
