Every year the Ever After team tries to attend at least 1 videographer’s convention. Apart from a great oppportunity to meet fellow videographers from across the globe and some inspiring seminars, the WEVA International convention also hosts the annual Creative Excellence Award ceremony. Hundreds of videographers send in their work to be judged by a jury of peers, the results are announced during the openingsgala dinner of this convention in Orlando. After scooping last year’s ‘Best Wedding Day Film’ in the UK, we plucked up the courage to sent in some work for the WEVA Creative Excellence Awards (CEA’s). We were truly honoured and surprised when we heard our name. By the time we got to the podium to receive our CEA for best Shortform, we were leaping with joy both for winning and for the congratulations we received from some of the best studios worldwide. During the rest of the convention, we attend some great seminars that inspirated and challenged some ideas. The atmosphere of sharing and support from studios with distinct ideas and traditions is what makes one proud to be a Wedding Videographer. Thanks to all you guys and girls who have made this once again a memorable trip.
I have some more UK news as well. Ever After is happy to announce that we will host 2 seminars at this year’s IOV convention in Coventry. One seminar will introduce the concept of Shortform Wedding Films, the other will focus on marketing in the brave new world of Social Media. We look forward to sharing our passion and ideas with our UK collegues.
