Frequently asked questions + things we'd like you to know.
What is your style?
Like any good artist, our style evolves with time and trends. For now, we love natural light, handheld camerawork, film grain, inspired candids, some slow-mo here and there, and well-thought compositions. Basically, we want to show you real but also make you see perspectives you can’t with the naked eye. One thing for sure: we pride in being UNTEMPLATED.
What do you mean UNTEMPLATED?
This is what sets us apart from others. We say NO to the usual, the overdone, and the formula. You know what we’re talking about, right? Our promise is to deliver a wedding film that you can truly call your own.
I noticed that you just added HONEST in there. What's that all about?
We're glad you noticed! Like we've said our style evolves. And as we've spent time creating untemplated wedding videos, our values - the way we shoot and work - were moved towards showing beyond candidness and rawness - Really, the best word we have is honesty. Showing real is our priority.
What is a Full Wedding Docu?
That's a complete chronological edited video starting at your wedding ceremony up to the end of your reception program. Think all 3 cameras threaded together completely yet creatively. Total duration: 1 - 1.5 hours, cut into chapters. And presented in a custom Hello & Co. flash drive / USB. We think it's perfect for couples who don't want to miss anything or want to binge watch their wedding in the far future, or for your beloved guests who weren't able to come to the big day.
Who picks the music?
Audio plays a crucial role in our videos. We welcome suggestions when it comes to the music as this also helps us determine your personality, the vibe, and the direction you want to take. We’ll take them into consideration and see if it fits our style. UPDATE: Take note that social media platforms are getting stricter and stricter with copyright music.
Do you have a photo / video package?
Actually, yes! Hello & Co. Cinema only does videos but what we do have are our tie-up photographers whom we closely work with. We’re practically in sync! You get the best of both worlds: two teams that are able to specialize, focus on their craft, and deliver the best quality but also two teams that perform as one. Inquire about our discounted tie-up packages today!
Do you accept pencil bookings?
No. Our hearts break when clients back out. So best avoid that situation.
Can I get a discount?
Most probably yes. Ask us how.
Where are you based?
We’re from the south of Manila, Philippines.
Do you shoot outside Metro Manila and internationally?
YES! We’d be delighted to! Ecstatic even! Inquire for out of town fees or an all-in destination package. Check out our HC TOUR schedule as well. We might be in your city!
Can I work or intern for you?
Maybe. We love to share our knowledge and our passion to those who really want to learn. Send us an cover letter. We don’t need big technical words. Just tell us why you want to work with us and what you can do for us. CV / Resume. Demo Reel. Equipment, if any. The works. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any advice as to how we can make our wedding video the best it can possibly be?
I can give you Tip #1: Since this is a video we’re talking about, think MOTION – a flowy dress, some petals or confetti, sparkles, dancing etc. For the rest, we offer free consultation. Schedule a meeting with us. :)
