Hi Mexico!

We don’t normally share personal stuff on here, but the support from past clients, friends, and other professionals in the industry has always been incredible, so I feel it necessary to share this update.

In a few words… we have moved out of America down to Mexico! It was decided in the middle of 2016. I won’t go too much into details, but I must say that from the business side of things, being in a comfortable + successful stage, meeting professional goals whenever set and already being part of a network, leaving everything back in the US was a very tough decision.

When I first went to America for school years ago I had no idea where that would take me. Somewhere along the way I met the love of my life, Sunny, and we started this adventure called Robert Oberg Wedding Films. Now we are back in my home country, with a lot of experiences we would not change, and with new goals and dreams. Some change once in a while is good, and we can’t complain: the food here is amazing, we live 15 minutes away from a lovely beach, and there’s family/relatives all around. Sometimes, however, we continue to miss Texas…

Teaser

Gabriel & Ashley – Mini teaser

This Mini Teaser is different from the other Mini Teasers previously posted. This is actually the first two minutes from Gabriel & Ashley’s Feature Film that I’ve just completed. I thought the mood was just perfect not only as an intro for the Feature, but also as a teaser of the Highlights that I’m editing now. This couple was so awesome to work with and I can’t wait to share more with you in a few days.

Tips

The truth about Raw files

A couple of months ago I got a phone call from a man. He had married some months back, he was NOT our client, and he had just received the content of his wedding video package: “a Highlights music video and the raw files of the day.” He was happy with the Highlights, but he didn’t know what to do with the 500 or so movie clips that he had received in a hard drive. He wanted to have something longer to watch with his wife and remember the day, but the short clips were all over the place, had lots of shake, had moments of the day shot next to items, candles, flowers, and trees, and some things were repeated as they were shot with two cameras. Everything was pretty much and unwatchable mess.
