Val & Khwezi - GONE Music Video

Better late then never?

This is a project Val and did a few months back. The summer got in the way and this is first time I've posted about it! So after the long wait I can finally release the full version of GONE. 

This was my second time working with Val and it was a treat as always. We spent the day catching up and shooting in a good friend's attic, lovingly called the boho dream tent. 

Can not wait to start working in the next music video with Val!

The Creative Testimonies

I am happy to finally release the short documentary 'The Creative Testimonies' directed by Jade Lalonde.

Jade approached me in be beginning of the pre production process simply for some advice on how to go about shooting this doc. After meeting with her and hearing her pitch, I couldn't stay away. I thought her idea was great and I just had to be a part of it. I am so grateful that she allowed me to be part of her project. 

This documentary is a part of Jade's thesis project for her Masters degree at McMaster University. The Create Testimonies explores the Toronto creative scene and the "free" spaces in the community. Throughout the doc Jade speaks to Toronto creatives to get an in depth look into the reality of what it means to live as a creative in the big city.
"My documentary 'The Creative Testimonies' is now live on YouTube! This film serves as my Major Research Project (MRP) for my Master's degree at McMaster University. The documentary highlights the experiences of creative workers in Toronto, particularly in regards to precarious labour and creative industries. A special thank-you and shout out to Sarah Gonyea my wonderful partner in crime, cinematographer, and editor."
- Jada Lalonde

Shooting this short doc was such a blast and I am so happy I had the opportunity to be part of it and meet so many interesting people!

Jessica & Alexander Wedding Teaser!

        Jessica & Alexander might be the real life Cinderella and Prince Charming. I found out on the wedding day that the two met buying a pair of shoes! If you don't call that a modern day fairytale I don't know what is!

        This beautiful August wedding started off with sunshine and a warm breeze as the guys and gals began to get ready, however, a main concern of the bride was the weather. The forecast was not looking good.  As the ceremony creeped closer and closer the clouds got darker and darker and the wind got stronger and stronger... things we not looking good for the outdoor ceremony. Right before Jessica was about to walk down the isle... rain... but... only 10-20 drops! As soon as she reached the edge of the isle the sun comes out and the few drops of rain come to a halt!!!! It was truly something out of a disney movie. Although the wind was a very present guest during the ceremony, the rain held out the whole time! No need to stress about the weather after all!!

        All that craziness aside, Jessica and Alexander put on a beautiful wedding on lakeshore in Hamilton. It was such a pleasure to shoot this wedding and be apart of their special day. Good luck you two! Pocket Change Productions wishes you the best of luck!

Alex and I had the opportunity to work with Sarah and Zach for our wedding. We had heard amazing things through friends of friends and they exceeded all expectations. Throughout the wedding day, they were professional, kind and easygoing. They were well organized and worked well together to capture the day. The teaser video that was given to us was perfect. It captured the love, happiness and joy of the day. We are extremely happy with the product and service we received and would highly recommend Product Change Productions to others.
