About Banner Day Films

Banner Day Films is dedicated to helping people tell their stories. I would love to help you share the story of your special day, your family, or your company.

I've been producing video for several years and involved in film and theatre since I was a child. I love the craft of filmmaking, but more than that I love what films can do - make us laugh and cry with people we've never met, give us access to things we might never experience ourselves, and allow us to share our stories with our loved ones and the world.

Why DSLR?

I've been shooting on DSLRs since shortly after I started making films. I fell in love with the cinematic look they can create - the shallow depth of field and gorgeous bokeh. It usually requires a bit more work than shooting video on camcorders, but the resulting visuals are absolutely worth it!

Another great thing about shooting video on DSLR is the small form factor. This allows us to be more mobile and less conspicuous when recording events, so your photos and videos show you, NOT a bunch of huge video cameras!
