I have no power against this bitter cold,
this weakness and this trembling, I am old;
who am I, why do I wait here, what have I lost?
nothing or everything but I gain this
"In Time of Gold" - H. D.
One of the aspects of being a destination videographer that I really enjoy is that I often get the chance to meet interesting people from all around the globe and to travel to some of the most amazing locations worldwide to film their stories. For me it is very important to have the artistic freedom to design on a white canvas and tell a moving story that potentially other people are going to connect with. It is always a great challenge, but it is also a great stimulation of creativity and the main reason why I have chosen to become a wedding videographer. So, here is my Destination Wedding Filmmaker and Elopement Videographer Showreel. A collection of my “best” video moments, combined together to tell another story. A bit of my own story. A poetry about the concept of time. Watch the film above then keep on reading to discover the ideas behind the film.
Destination Wedding Filmmaker: a year in Retrospective
I want to start out by saying that I am so grateful for the opportunities that life gave me this year. Having the chance to work as Elopement Videographer in Greece, Italy and Iceland AND Destination Wedding filmmaker in Greece, Italy, France, Europe and around the world is a DREAM, and I am so lucky.
This year has been a blast. I have met new people, and lived unforgettable moments. Embarked on 18 planes and missed twice my flights (yes shit happens). My work has brought me to travel to 6 countries in two different continents and to meet new cultures and ways of life. I have received more than 30 awards from international film festivals and a few more from the most important professional associations. The year has ended in the best possible way by receiving 2 Golden Lens awards and being elected as International Videographer of the Year by Inspiration Photographers. One of the most prestigious International Professional Associations counting more than 2.000 members worldwide.
I would like to thank all the couples for their trust, love, friendship and support and wish from the bottom of my heart a prosperous and creative year full of good surprises amazing discoveries and unique experiences.
Destination wedding filmmaker & elopement videographer showreel: a story on the concept of time
Is time an illusion? Do multiple realities exist in the present? Is time even real? Can we freeze it or travel backwards to relive the moments? In our conventional way of thinking and within our finite conception of reality, our perception is that events are ephemeral. But when we experience the strongest of emotions we may feel momentarily that we can reach eternity.
Crafting a destination wedding film can be considered as a possible way to freeze the feeling and make it somewhat eternal. One moment can be so short, but at the same time one single moment can contain an infinite sequence of events and emotions…
In this film you can find scenes from some of my most recent wedding videos: Iceland Elopement Video, Anafi Wedding Video, Lefkada Wedding Video, Santorini Inspiration Elopement Video, Gran Canaria Inspiration Elopement Video, Santorini wedding Video, Madrid Experimental Documentary Film, and speech from the Athens Riviera video, only to name a few.
