The Inkspot Crow Project : Kramden Institute!

When the Kramden Institute was declared the winner of our first non-profit giveaway, we were pumped to get the chance to work with this great organization! Little did we know just how awesome they’d be. With a hard-working staff of just a few, and an army of dedicated volunteers (Geeks, as they are called), this organization makes a HUGE impact on students state-wide by awarding home computers to kids in need. The sheer amount of manpower and organization that goes into this mission is astounding, yet they pull it off with grace (and a lot of fun on the way)!

We had a blast interviewing award participants, volunteers and teachers as part of this project. We got to join in on a Wednesday Work Night where the magic happens, and witness 2 award days. BIG thanks to everyone who nominated Kramden to win this video. We are so glad we got to know this crew and document the impact of their work.

Oh, and we were named honorary Geeks of the Week! Thanks guys!

Triangle Transit : 20th Anniversary + TV Spot + Philip’s musical skills

Happy 20th Anniversary to Triangle Transit! We became big fans of this organization a few years back, when Philip commuted to Raleigh from Chapel Hill, and I rode the bus to UNC from my apartment in Durham. We became “choice riders”, trading windshield time for personal time (reading, writing, studying). Triangle Transit has been making this area a better spot to live for two decades now, and they hired us to make a film to celebrate this momentous occasion. Many thanks to the outstanding staff we got to meet and work with on this project!

Thanks to Jessie Gladin-Kramer for your brilliant photos which we incorporated into this piece. Music by Drexler, licensed through With Etiquette

Next up: A 30-second TV spot we created using the footage and interviews we collected from the 20th Anniversary video. Also, Philip composed the snappy tune for this spot and gosh, it’s great to have him back creating music!

Em - Love Philip’s music!!

Shelby - This is awesome! Congrats on such an amazing film and TV spot! and the music is perfect :)

Orangerie Events : Branding Film

It’s our great pleasure to share this branding film we made with Priscilla of Orangerie Events! Priscilla launched a lovely new website last week, where our film has found its new home. We were thrilled to have the chance to get to know Priscilla better during the process of shooting her branding film, and we’re excited you’ll get to know a bit about her through watching what we have created. As you can see, she’s equal parts professional, stylish, nurturing, creative and fun!

Justin & Maureen : Mexico wedding highlights

Folks, if you decide to get married in Mexico in the dead of winter and you ask us to film it, you best believe we will be there with bells on. Maureen + Justin chose to celebrate their wedding with family and friends in Mexico’s Maya Riviera region at a fantastic all-inclusive resort: El Dorado Royale. The resort was spectacular on so many levels, but honestly, none of this would have been any fun if M + J weren’t so dang cool. The couple and their friends and family were so hospitable, and obviously excited we’d joined them. Maureen (who made the fantastic jewelry her bridesmaids wore) even had a necklace she’d made for me on the wedding day too!  We worked hard during their wedding weekend, but spent the few following days just relaxing on the beach. In addition to filming the events, Philip and I spent several hours one day capturing some of the sights and sounds around the resort and the beaches. It was just so perfect and it all played into the way their wedding sounded and felt, so we hope it comes across in this film (and their Feature Film which we will begin editing shortly).
Maureen & Justin: thanks for inviting us along on an incredible weekend of celebrating your relationship and commitment to one another. We know you’ll share many adventures in your married life, and we are grateful we were part of the first adventure! Enjoy your new life on the west coast!

Featured : Southern Weddings

Last fall we had the pleasure of joining Emily & John to film their seaside wedding in Connecticut. It was unforgettable. If you haven’t watched their highlight film yet, we think you’ll love it (click here!). In addition to being an adorable newlywed, Emily serves as a creative director for Southern Weddings (one of our very favorite wedding magazine and blogs!) and created a series of posts about their wedding. You will love all that Emily shares about the process of planning their wedding and her recap on the big day. Emily dedicated one post in the series to debut the highlight film we made for them, and we’re so honored she did. Click HERE to read it!

Chris & Emily : Wedding Highlights, Raleigh, NC

Oh my, I don’t know where to start in describing these two incredibly quirky individuals. First, I must say, Emily might be one of our biggest fans. This was from an email I got from Emily on the morning after she was engaged:

“Hello, hello! Oh my goodness, my boyfriend proposed to me last night and you are the FIRST EMAIL I am sending because we must must must have you at our wedding!”

Can you tell how zany she is by her awesome email? Well she is the real deal. And so is Chris. And when they get together, they are a force beyond words. We loved being part of their wedding day so much! For one, it was filled with tons of DIY, original, crafty details (feathers rather than flowers in January? yes please!). But as is usually the case with weddings we love, the people at their wedding made it so memorable. From their cool dual-ministers, to their friends singing a-capella, to their rad photographers (Story Photographers). The day was filled with genuine moments and true, joyful celebration

Thank you, Emily & Chris, for being so excited about having us at your wedding and for the warmth you are spreading in Raleigh and beyond.
