  • 34 - Gold Amongst the Shit ft. David Le

    Sometimes someone creates something so fresh and out of the box that people can’t help but stop and take notice. Today, Andrew and I are sitting down with wedding photographer David Le, who created a Wes Anderson inspired, stop motion masterpiece of a film that was nominated for Junebug's best wedding film 2021.


    However, the catch here is that it was so time consuming and difficult to create, that he will never make anything like it again. And so today’s show is about trying new things, learning, being creative, failing and ultimately finding small nuggets of gold amongst piles of shit.

  • 33 - Empathy ft. Monika Frias

    We’ve talked a bit about being an empathetic filmmaker on this podcast before and today’s guest is yet another example of why this skill is a vital piece of the puzzle when it comes to making truly unique and standout work. Being able to connect with your couples first and foremost and make a film that’s for them, not for you or your ego as a creative, but for them is what results in art that has substance behind it.

    Monika’s work is beautiful, raw, delicate and timeless. She’s one of those creatives who is clearly comfortable with their tool, comfortable with the “rules” of filmmaking and confident about breaking them in the best way possible.

  • 31 - Always Be Creating ft. Russell Kent Nicholls

    This podcast is all about helping you find and develop your unique style of wedding filmmaking, something that your couples will see and think “that’s us, that’s what we want!”. But this often goes beyond the films themselves, couples connect with the filmmaker as much as the films and so on today’s show, we’re talking to UK videographer Russell Kent Nicholls about his all-round approach to how he portrays his films, his brand and himself through social media. Russell has managed to combine his beautiful filmmaking with, education, humour, relatability and authenticity, resulting in an online presence that presents him as the perfect balance between aspirational and approachable.

  • 30 - Creating Balanced Films ft. Stanton Giles - Films by Stanton

    We often have a certain style of film that we prefer to create, whether it’s more moody and “cinematic” or fun and upbeat, but the reality is that most weddings contain a full spectrum of emotions and energies. Today I’m talking to Stanton Giles of @filmsbystanton because his work, I feel, is a rare example that shows the full spectrum of emotions on a wedding day. On today’s show we’ll be breaking down Stanton’s work and figuring out how he transitions between the light and shade, the highs and lows and still manages to create balanced, cohesive films.


    Make sure to check out Staton's YouTube channel as he's putting out some great educational content over there! As well as follow his work at the links below.
