About Teardrop Films
Hi, my name is Matthew and I want Teardrop Films to be a vibrant and creative wedding filmmaking and videography company and specialise in capturing the atmosphere and emotion of every wedding we're luckily enough to be part of.
I am based in Southampton, Hampshire, and i have run Teardrop Films for over 5 years now. As a husband and father of two small girls Isabella & Amelie, I have been making short films since I was 10 years old with Lego and my Dad's old Sanyo video-camcorder. I trained and worked as a Interior Designer before finding my love of filmmaking once again and set up Teardrop Films in 2010. On days when I'm not shooting weddings or editing I'm spending time with my gorgeous family, playing non-league football or watching live music at gigs - and in fact held and organised a mini festival in my garden recently which we hope to become an annual event. I also love watching Ice Hockey - I am a big Vancouver Canucks fan since I lived there back in 2001 and I have a soft spot for Country music.
I believe that having a professionally made film of your big day is equally as important as the photographs. What better way to remember the details and laughter of the day then in real time and with real emotion by watching it as it unfolds. Having the wedding on film will allow you to see family members who sadly may not always be with you in years to come and will show you parts of the day which otherwise you may have missed. Above all you'll have a permanent record of the most special day of both your lives, and something you'll both treasure forever.
I think that it's important to tell the whole story of your wedding day from start to finish and so filming begins with the Bride and Groom getting ready in the morning and finishes late into the evening once the party is in full swing.
I don't believe in intruding on your day at all, so I always stand back and film the day as it naturally unfolds. I always work along side the photographer and am careful to not get in their way, so nothing they do will be compromised by me.
So much happens on your wedding day that can easily be missed while your back is turned. This is why I believe that having your wedding filmed is the perfect way to ensure that you have a complete record of the day and will love looking back and spotting something new every time you watch it! I am there to capture the action and the reaction .
I use a variety of filming equipment to capture the day including Canon DSLRs and cinema cameras. The sound is recorded on high quality recording equipment and I use glidetracks to help create a real cinematic feel to your film.
I love what I do and would love to be part of your day too. Feel free to get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
