2016 AIPP Video Awards
Making films about people getting married is a pretty cool job. Over the last 8 years, we’ve filmed hundreds of weddings, meet so many amazing people and been to some pretty incredible places. As a creative company, we’ve always wanted to push the envelope with the stories we tell and how wedding videos are perceived. But like a sportsperson, you don’t really know where you stand until you’re in competition with others!
Unfortunately, New Zealand doesn’t have a national wedding videography competition, so I thought I’d try my luck entering the Australian AIPP Video Awards instead! This was the first time entering a competition like this so I had no idea how it would go.
I decided to enter 5 films in 4 different categories and see how I faired. And as it turns out I did ok!! All 5 films achieved Silver Awards. And two films were 1 point off Silver Distinction! Arrrghh!
So I thought I’d share them with you here if you’re keen to take a look!
wedding same day edit category – rob + cindy – silver award 80 points.
wedding highlights category – earl + helen – silver award 84 points.
wedding feature film category – gareth + bex – silver award 82 points.
wedding feature film category – craigen + jaimee – silver award 83 points.
documentary category (under $10,000) – the three of us – silver award 84 points.
Thanks for checking out these films. And I have to say, thanks so much to the people who let us tell your stories. You’re the stars!!! 😉
Cheers. Jared + Pete
