Nelson Nunez Productions
I've worked with Nelson in the past with my group Legaci. He filmed our first music
video back in 2001. With that video, he won an award and was featured on
a website winning money in the process.
With my wedding coming up I knew I had to have Nelson film a Concept film for my big day.
My bride to be and I wanted to make a short film that included everyone in our bridal party for our
family and friends to enjoy during the night. We were excited to work with
Nelson and his crew. We met a few times brainstorming ideas.
He interviewed our relationship, and us as individules. He takes good notes and always
incoprates good detail in his work. We couldn't wait to see what Nelson and his crew came up
with. During the creative process he would always ask us our input
and how we felt about different storylines. He was very understanding
and wanted to try his best to incorporate our ideas into the film.
He's very professional and with no acting skillz at all, he brought out
the Denzel in me=P. With limited time and over 20 people in our
entourage he managed to work with everyone's schedules and got all the
shots he wanted. It's a surprise in 1 weekend of shooting what he
was able to come up with. It was so much fun working with the whole
bridal party on this concept film. Hardly anyone had acting skillz but
Nelson help bring out the best in all of us. Hes so creative behind the
camera and knows exactly what shots he needed and wanted for the film.
In the process of making this whole film I seen how much hard
work/dedication he puts in with something he truly loves and has a
Showing the film on our wedding day was the highlight of the
night. He had the whole ballroom laughing and smiling. At the end of the film,
all our guest were cheering! Everyone in the room wanted to know who filmed it.
Everyone was asking for his business card! Till this day I have family
and friends from the wedding asking for his contact information. Nelson
is the first person I would recommend for any event. So if your
looking for someone to capture your wedding, event or you want a concept
film, Nelson is for sure the person you want. Patient, experienced, great
behind the camera, hard working, creative and till this day I love all
the work he's done.
Thanks again to Nelson, Antonio and Jen...you guys make a great team!
Nelson was able to put together a film that not only captured 'our story,' but kept us and our guests entertained. The scenes flowed smoothly and he made the pieces fit together. While scripting and filming required time, effort and hard work, the whole process was amusing and rewarding. We are really happy to have worked with such a talent. Thanks Nels!

In fall08, my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of working with Nelson. From brainstorming to filming, he was incredibly committed to making sure our video would turn out great. And it did. Everything he did, he did it for us. Hopefully you'll get married once in your life, so why not make the reception an event everyone will remember? He will absolutely floor you with his dedication, and draw the creativity out of you with his passion and sincerity. If you are going to spend money, spend it on a truly unique concept film. Spend it on someone who will do everything in his power to make your day as special as it should be. I guarantee you won't regret it.
My wife and I wanted to create a funny wedding video. We had recently seen the Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie and thought that the interview segments were funny. Initially we wanted to film an interview in that same style. We then met Nelson through our wedding videographer and he took our story to another level. We were excited to hear about his ideas and couldn't wait to work with him. Nelson provided timelines, scripts, and his patience, which he needed because we were not professional actors. Furthermore, Nelson would send us drafts and ask for feedback, which made our wedding video a collaborative effort. Nelson was able to use our feedback and weave it into our video. Although it was hardwork waking up early on the weekend, practicing our script, and doing multiple takes to get things right, it was all worth it in the end. We definitely had fun making this short film and enjoyed our time working with Nelson and his production crew. He is very talented and has a creative eye. In closing, the final product was viewed during our wedding and it was a success. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about it to this day. We felt like celebrities. My wife and I have something that we can watch later on in life that will remind us of our fun experience of making an over the top wedding video. We plan to share it again with family and friends at our 25th & 50th Wedding Anniversary.
A concept film is a relatively new term that has been used around the wedding and event industry. Basically, it is a short film based on your real story (with a few drops of comedy and drama)! This is not a "love story" session where I interview you and edit it with shots of you walking and playing on the beach. This is a film production. You are taken through the process from the initial brainstorm of ideas for the film, to production, and to the exciting premiere screening at your reception.
I first got the idea to shoot these short films for couples when I was constantly approached to shoot weddings or create a slideshow. With my background and love for film, I offered to shoot something different and entertaining for them... whether it be a short film, movie trailer, music video, sketch, documentary, or anything in between.
The best way to understand what a concept film is and what it's like to have one at your reception is to visit my website and see the examples!
