When I got engaged and the topic of Wedding Videography came up I kind of cringed. I have worked in TV and Film Production for over 10 years so I know what goes in to making good video. In general I was kind of against the idea of a wedding video until I went to a good friends wedding where Filmtwist had done a Same Day Edit. I was pretty blown away with the caliber of their production and how they managed to seamlessly edit it into a beautiful and personalized short video.

After further research into other wedding videographers I was convinced Filmtwist was the ONLY videographers I wanted to go with. What sets Filmtwist apart is that they aren't just wedding videographers...they're filmmakers who happen to shoot weddings. Their sensibilities are very refined and polished when it comes to cinematography and storytelling. They could easily, and absolutely, do more commercial work and have a talented crew headed by Deepa....who is absolutely terrific to work with. What is most important about Filmtwist is that their videos really focus on trying to capture the moment, the couple and the wedding over just shooting the same kinds of shots that fit into a pre-scripted formula.

The day of the wedding Deepa rolled in with a good sized crew and a lot of equipment. Two of my groomsmen are in the tv/film industry as well and they were both impressed with what they brought: a 20 ft crane, lots of sliders, cameras, lenses and even an helicopter drone. When it came time for the Same Day Edit, my wife and I were both nervous and excited. When the video played we were both blown away. It was amazing to see our wedding day show that same evening. The quality and level of craft in the production was simply amazing and blew away everyone in attendance. Throughout the day, you could see how hard they worked and how much love they put into what they did. After the video I just ran up to Deepa, gave him a big hug and thanked his entire crew on their amazing job.

I feel like my husband and I really lucked out that we stumbled upon Filmtwist Productions to use for our wedding! When it comes to capturing images and memories of such a special event, you have to go with a reputable company with great creativity, teamwork, professionalism and a high quality product. Filmtwist will exceed your every expectation and will be worth every dollar of investment. Deepa and his crew were fantastic to work with from the planning stages prior to the event all the way through the day itself. Everyone was very friendly and enjoyable to spend time with and they take their job very seriously. Having our own personal film crew for the day made every part of it even more fun and more special and we felt like movie stars for a day! They worked fantastically with our photographer and everyone made sure to get in all the desired shots. Our end project is absolutely fabulous! There were so many things that happened at our wedding and reception that I didn't get to see which are now captured in this beautiful, fun and memorable wedding film. It is so amazing to have such a special day captured in such a creative and wonderful way and the video brings so much joy to us every time we watch it. The day goes by in a flash but the video will last forever. When considering which company to go with, I highly recommend Filmtwist. Fun, friendly and easy to work with, with competitive pricing and a high quality impressive end product which will capture the personality of you and your spouse and the theme of your wedding. You can feel confident knowing that if you work with Filmtwist you will get the memories you want and even those you didn't know you missed on video! This was the best investment we made for our wedding!

We cannot say enough about Filmtwist. They listened to everything we wanted and found a way to incorporate everything into our video. They also spent a lot of time getting to know us in order to make the experience more personal. We never had to wait to hear back wether by phone or email. During the wedding they were well prepared and made it fun. The end product was more than we could've hoped for with movie quality and exquisite editing. We would definitely recommemd Filmtwist to all of our family and friends.

Working with Filmtwist Productions was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding. They were very easy to work with, understanding, flexible, respectful, patient, and very professional. They offered advice when we asked for it and respected and listened to what we wanted for our wedding videos. It was so much fun working with them and having them be part of the process. Deepa, Franck, and the entire team were all awesome.

Deepa and his team were amazing to work with! They were there for all 4 of our wedding events, and were great at capturing the key moments. We took a long time to choose our photographer and videographer, and were very happy with our choice. They had multiple videographers available to ensure all the key moments were captured, and even had cameras attached to my wedding car! We just received the main feature and highlight videos, and couldn't be happier. Go with them you won't be sorry!

This review is for Deepa and his team at Filmtwist Productions. My wife and I were introduced to Deepa through a close friend. We were looking for a love story video which we would present to our guests at the wedding. From beginning to end, Deepa and his team were professional and thorough, involving my wife and I through every stage of the filmmaking process.

Prior to our meeting with Deepa we had a skype conversation during which we discussed what we had envisioned for our love story video. Deepa really took the time to get to know us and discuss the different options we had for the video.

The day of filming was the first time we met Deepa face to face. Meeting Deepa for the first time was like reconnecting with an old friend. From beginning to the end of the day Deepa made the filming process comfortable and easy. My wife and I were initially very nervous of being filmed, but with Deepa’s patience and encouragement the process actually became fun. Deepa was very thorough and wanted to get the most of our time filming and this was evident in the final video.

At the end of the filming day, Deepa gave us a rough timeline of when the video would be done. His timing was right on. From music selection to allowing us to preview the video before the final edit, Deepa and his team did an amazing job. The week before the wedding, we had requested that a back-up CD be sent to us. Deepa sent the CD to us through expedited UPS shipping at the location we were to have our wedding (Hawaii shipping is not cheap!). Deepa did this for us and even followed up with us prior to the wedding to ensure that we had received the backup copy.

The video turned out great and all of our guests were impressed by it. His thoroughness and dependability was invaluable in lessening our stress leading up to our big day. Deepa’s artistic ability and professionalism is top notch and both my wife and I refer him to our friends whenever we get the chance. We highly recommend Deepa and his team at Filmtwist Productions.

We first heard about Deepa (FilmTwist) through a referral from our chosen wedding photographer. My husband and I had spent so much time choosing our photographer for obvious reasons. I think every couple out there focuses on spending a big chunk of their budget on wedding photography. Little did we know how important the wedding video would be to us as well until we watched our 5 minute highlight video from Deepa. As soon as we received the link to watch it on Vimeo, we were super excited. Excitement turned into awe by the end of the short film. The shooting techniques and edits truly amazed us. My husband and I have always been camera shy and Deepa made us look like movie stars. We live in Fremont, a small town in the East Bay of California, so we there wasn’t much for Deepa to work with in terms of scenery. But he was able to turn an ordinary park into a dream wedding movie.

Aside from his talent with video, he’s an all-around nice guy that we definitely connected with. We first met him at a park (coincidence?) and my husband and I walked around the park with him just talking and getting to know each other. He really made us feel comfortable and we experienced this all throughout the wedding day.

Overall, we’re super glad we booked him for our wedding and we definitely recommend him and FilmTwist if you are looking for someone to capture that special moment in your lives! Thanks so much Deepa!
