Friday August 26 @ 6:30pm
This month’s meeting is a real treat; don’t miss it. Thomas O’Hara will share with us his filming techniques for producing winning wedding films. Tom is the owner of Aqua Vivus Productions located in San Diego. His production methods have won him wide acclaim in the cinematic wedding film industry. It’s a privilege to have him with us this month as he shares the techniques he uses to produce his films.
“It’s how many of us began: a friend was getting married and we had a camera. After filming that first wedding we were hooked, the real life emotions and spur of the moment documentation was thrilling. Before long we were learning how to capture audio, the basics of lighting, and creating cinematic masterpieces in one take.”
For Tom what began as a fun hobby in college had turned into a full-fledged career in a span of 3 years. Since his first wedding in 2005, he has captured over 300 weddings to date. In that time he’s had the pleasure of observing some of the best in our field while they work, and he’s picked up a few tricks of his own along the way. So far he has filmed weddings across the globe spanning three continents and carved out a niche in the San Diego, CA market amongst the high end clientele there. Education is one of his life passions (he was originally in school to become a teacher) so the process of learning, growing, and giving back is something he holds dear. He thanks you for the opportunity to join the conversation and hopefully leave everyone with something useful.
