“You have also always been there
for Dad when he is unwell and sick,
always there cheering him up…”
Thank you for sharing what love means to you, Sherwin and Stephanie. We were extremely moved by your story, and you have brought out the best in us, too.
I just received a phone call from someone today, asking us for more information because our blog is acting funny. So I should declare here Ichiro Films is live and kicking, still doing Wedding Cinematographer/Wedding Videography in Singapore and wherever you might want to bring us, and from what we last heard, still in Singapore Tatler as one of the best in the industry (their words, not ours) and though our blog is not working properly, happy to hear from you if you need any help at all!
And, we have been on Facebook for a long time now, and still there at www.facebook.com/ichirofilms! More updates there, and we are truly sorry for neglecting our humble blog because of our focused efforts on Facebook!
Is Ichiro Films a Wedding Videography company, or a Wedding Cinematography company?
Cinematography (from Greek: ??????, kinema “movements” and ???????, graphein “to record”) is the art or science of motion picture photography.
- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Videography refers to the process of capturing moving images on electronic media (e.g., videotape, direct to disk recording, or solid state storage like a tapeless camcorder) even streaming media.
We have been using the term Wedding Cinematography freely for years now, so for those who are curious, these are the definitions! In fact, we were one of the first, with a couple of other well known Singapore Wedding Videographers to use this term when we first founded the Wedding Cinematographers Guild.
However, we do feel that there is more to the term “Cinematography” that relates to story telling than just a technical definition alone, and we will explore over the next few weeks.
For now, we are Wedding Videographers too!
We have been soft launching our “Secret Weapons” for the past few weeks now, all towards promoting who they are and what they believe in. The fact that Lance, Meow and Jia Hong had each been with us from an average of 7 months to a year without us promoting their services at all will attest to our stringent standards, but now we feel that they are ready, and hope for support for the team.
For all weddings from now till June 2014 headed either by Lance, Meow or Jia Hong, we would automatically top up to have two cinematographers cover your wedding! That’s SGD 3200 for Two Cinematographers’ Full Day Wedding coverage inclusive of Same Day Edit!
On top of that, for the next 5 sign ups, we would be giving additional discounts and freebies, so do check with us on that!
“…it was really hard, but we never made it a big issue …“
From our vaults come Brendan and Tiffany’s story. This was actually the first time we used compositing techniques in our shoot. Cheesiness and believability were an issue, so do comment to give us some feedback!
My name is Meow.
And the following sentences are about me.
Please do not doubt the spelling, because it is really written as such on my Identity Card! I have asked my mom countless times why. Why the word “Meow” in my name? Her answer had always been because it is “special”! (=.=)
I have recently found that the Chinese character holds some meaning related to Feng Shui. I have grown on to like my name for being a good ice-breaker with anyone.
Before joining the Ichiro Films team, I was completing my degree in Liverpool John Moores University. My biggest interest is filming and editing. To that end, I have chosen to be in the Wedding Cinematography because this is a position where I can take part in both filming and editing.
I’ve been training for half a year in Ichiro Films. The team had helped me improve in both these skills. I’ve also learnt to better communicate with our couples so as to be able to really understand them better. Of course, the hardest skill to catch had been the ability to think on the spot while filming and editing on the actual day of their wedding, and I am still learning.
Thank you for reading this long overdue description. Chris had asked me to write this for months now, and I am finally getting down to doing it! So I am happy to be here, and look forward to coming up with better work in the future!
“those who know me really well,
will be surprised to know if it is only a few words …”
Nandini has a overwhelmingly bubbly personality. To Vicnesh, that might be what he saw in her, that loud and crazy personality that he found loveable.
Theirs was a colorful wedding, with a lot of dancing, and genuinely warm moments. You could really feel the family and friends all being proud to be a part of their lives. Our team felt it too. Thank you guys, for including us in your wonderful day!
Some of our previous work :-
Before joining Ichiro Films, I was a lighting and compositing artist working on cartoons.
Films, cartoons, anything that is visual attracts me. A year back, I heard from a friend that he was very touched by a wedding video that he saw. Curious as I was, I received a video link from him. Before I knew it, I became addicted to watching wedding videos!
I cannot remember how the first video I watched looked how, or even who the company behind it was, but it got me inspired into wondering how each couple’s wedding day could be created into a short film. I enjoy imagining the person behind the camera, wondering what he was going through and what he used to capture the story.
I’ve been with Ichiro Films for 7 months coming to 8 now and I am proud of the fact that the team is extremely motivated in creating stories for every couple they meet. It keeps me motivated and inspires me towards my goal of being just as good as a storyteller as they are. Being able to make couples laugh and cry after watching our video is our pride.
I am Jia Hong, and I am a part of Ichiro Films.
“Love hugs and kisses?
How about Sticks and Knives?”
Mary had insisted that Adam’s proposal be unique. Adam then surprised her by telling her to stay at the playground after her shopping for an impromptu sparring practice. He then pinned her down and pulled out the ring.
Thus was history made, and Mary said yes. Well done! Thank you for being so sporting about sparring on your wedding day guys!
