WEVA interview with wedding videographer Logic FreeMind from Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Ever since I started doing this job I've been working in team with at least one more person. In my country it's hard to keep a fixed team, because of the moving trend to other countries that took of lately. So from 5 people that I worked up until now, some already left and some are also planning to go. So this year, mainly it was just the two of us.

WEVA interview with wedding videographer Carlos van Oostrum from Rotterdam, Netherlands
Hi I am Carlos, filmmaker at BruidBeeld and co-founder of the event For Love’s Sake. We are making wedding films for 6 years now. It all started with a friend who asked us (me and Eelke) to film his wedding. After several time declining these type of events, because we had the idea wedding films were boring, non creative, not sexy and no fun at all, we said yes to this friend of mine. And guess what? Besides that the film was the worst I ever made, it was the best thing I ever did up until then. The gratitude, the freedom, the fun we had. So we decided to found BruidBeeld…and from there it all started. Nowadays we work with 2 teams, Eelke as head of one and myself as head of one. It felt like a waste of talent to just use 75% of your own shots and let the other make all the safety shots and vice versa.

And so it was that I knew what I was going to be great ..... The videos.

WEVA interview with wedding videographer Timotei Jinar from Bucharest, Romania
I grew up in a small city named Sebes and after I finished high school I've started working in a small studio while in college. After 3 years of working and studying I graduated computer science and headed for Cluj Napoca enrolling to a new school, the University of Art and Design where i planned to study photography and video. After two years I found my self working hard in the states to buy some filming tools and as soon as I came back in my country I started shooting weddings with two of my friends! It's been almost three years now since i've shot my first wedding alone on a DSLR, now we are a happy team that has a lot of fun working together trying to learn more and more. For now I work at home with one of my colleague. I never dreamed of being a wedding videographer but now that I do it I like this! The first weddings that I shot more than 7 years ago while working at that small studio and as well acting in some music videos and commercials for a friend of mine, Eduard Schneider, turned a switch in me and I said to my self I want to do this and do it the best I can! And God helped me until now and I think He gave me this talent and He will still help me do this better and learn more!
WEVA interview with wedding videographer Yulia Vopilova from Moscow, Russia
Frankly speaking I am not quite sure that it is possible to reach a desirable high level, shooting video alone. Due to certain circumstances I had to work without any team or to have first time shooting video with a new colleague (I would say it is merely the same). That is why I truly appreciate people being my permanent colleagues for the last couple of years. With these people you do not need any intercom because all shooting processes are already debugged, clear and brought to automatism. Some one or two gestures may intelligibly explain that my camera battery is low or it is necessary to check sound record level and change lenses. This feeling of calmness and confidence in my team gives me an opportunity to do my job with pleasure. To my mind it is a guarantee of a good result.
WEVA interview with wedding videographer Leoš Brabec from Prague, Czech Republic
The Primetime team is based on my work and the work of my assistants. Some of them help me to shoot at the weddings and some of them help me with the editing. On the wedding day we normally shoot in a team of two or three people.
