I wanted to take a minute to make a little personal post to catch everyone up on something that I recently realized I hadn’t shared here on the blog. Many of you already know this but some of you may not. Back in October we made one of our best decisions yet and moved our studio to Evanston and began sharing studio space with the cinematography company, I Do Films. We met the filmmakers and co-owners of I Do Films, Matt and Lori, in early 2010. Immediately we not only knew there was a connection between our businesses but also realized that we loved hanging out together and quickly found ourselves collaborating on personal shoots as often as we could. The photos and super 8mm film below were from an”about us” video that I Do Films created and asked us to be a part of. The vision was to recreate the “Wonder Years” intro and I think it went of pretty well.
Not only do we love Evanston, but we also love having the community and support that comes along with sharing a space together. The I Do Films team is creative and so much fun to be around. Our new studio is a perfect little two story house right in the heart of Evanston’s arts district. We feel so thankful for the opportunity to collaborate daily with other like-minded business owners. The second film below was created by I Do Films around the time that we made the decision to share studio space and we got recruited into this one as well. So even though these are a bit dated and shot several months back when my hair was much longer, we hope you still enjoy them!
