About Social Video

I am an independent, freelance videographer/editor based in the village of Sarratt, Herts, WD3. I have filmed all kinds of events including weddings, Bar Mitzahs and a variety of corporate conferences and events and bring experience from a wide variety of projects. You will find working with me is an interactive and enjoyable experience. We will meet, talk and exchange ideas and preferences to ensure you get exactly what you are after to record your memorable day. We'll make a schedule to cover all stages of the story from preparation to departure. While we can always include every step, you might want to customise your project to suit a tight budget or capture a specific part of the day in a special way. And while the quality of your video is to a great extent down to me, I do rely on the best equipment to get a good result. I have been using cameras since I was 4 years old (who remembers the Box Brownie?) and I now use two full-frame, high-resolution Sony Alphas and the best Zeiss lenses. Usually, one camera is static while I capture faces and interactions on a stabiliser with the other. Special effects like slow motion and timelapses can be part of the package as required. I bring portable lights for tricky dark spots and a variety of Rode microphones to capture everything from the vows in Church to the best man's naughtiest stories at your reception. Most projects will take a total of 5 days to complete including planning, shooting, editing and colour-grading. You'll get a preview ("Rushes") in 24 hours but the full edit will take longer. Budgets can vary according to the amount of work we agree to do and the finished length of your film but being Independent I can work within your limits and I'll always guarantee you excellent value for money. I work fast and I'll edit your footage with creativity and the utmost care to give you the best memories of your big day.

    We could not recommend John enough. The images captured the magic of the special day. With an excellent selection of posed and natural pictures of both the family and friends.
