IN-FOCUS Comes to Orlando!


It doesn’t get much better than this...

International industry superstars Patrick Moreau, Konrad Czystowski (StillMotion) and Kevin Shahinian (Pacific Pictures) combine their efforts for this one of a kind presentation...

Perhaps more important than the commonly asked question of “how” to achieve technical proficiency in your wedding films – from camera options and production techniques to format and post workflow – is a preceding question that dares you to establish a unique artistic voice sure to take your studio to the next level: “why.” Prepare to be inspired by industry leading filmmakers, Patrick Moreau, Konrad Czystowski of StillMotion and Kevin Shahinian of Pacific Pictures as they answer informing questions and explore what it takes to create "Inspired Wedding Films."

Ray Roman Rocks the House!

Last Tuesday, PVCF had the great pleasure of hosting An Evening With... Ray Roman, and what an evening it was! Playing to a nearly packed room, the evening began with an in-depth interview where Ray shared his story, his insights, advice and some of his trade secrets with our members.

Following the interview, Ray screened one of his signature Short Form Wedding Films in what turned out to be one of the highlights of the evening. Afterward, he demonstrated a variety of the equipment he uses on his shoots including his Steadicam rig and Canon 5D Mark II. He also showcased a variety of gear generously provided by Cinevate, which he utilizes to great effect.

We then continued our meeting "after hours" at the Ale House where Ray (and wife Jessica) joined us for a much more informal discussion. The evening was such a success that we are already in discussions to bring Ray back for an even more intense experience.

Thanks to Ray Roman, and all the members who helped in the production and filming of this event!
