About a year ago my friend Nidhi (who I just blogged about earlier today actually) introduced me to her friend Shane Pergrem who owns True Artists Studio. She told me he was an awesome videographer and to give him a call if we ever needed any videography done in the future. I ended up giving him a call because I thought it would be neat if we had video of our fashion shows and events instead of just pictures. He was immediately super excited about working on our events, started coming up with all these great ideas, and couldn’t wait to get started (I wrote this blog about him right after we started to work together).
He’s since done three videos for us (check them out below!) and I have to tell you, I’m just blown away by his work! He truly captures the look, activities and energy of the events! When I emceed his Wedding Film Festival for him in May, I got to see a ton of his wedding work, and that was even more incredible! (I cried like a baby after every video and I had to emcee!! haha!)
So, like I mentioned in my last blog, now that it’s officially Summer (aka weddings galore) I definitely recommend Shane. He does everything from weddings and events like Cincy Chic’s to commercials, and full-length films.
He also does a lot of charitable work for churches and non profits, such as City Gospel Mission and Montgomery Community Church (he gives discounted rates for all non profits FYI). He also gives back by donating money to organizations such as To Write Love On Her Arms (a non profit for depression, self abuse and suicide).
Plus, a project he’s currently working on is starting to generate some big buzz. He’s producing a local web show called “Cincy Now” (they’re filming for a segment on Cincy Chic’s Red Pink & Blue event next Friday, actually!!). The show will have a pilot launch party on Aug 17 at Mynt downtown. They’re in talks with some big stations to pick it up, so you may be hearing even more about it soon!
So, definitely give him a call if you ever need video. I’m just loving every piece he produces for us (I think you will too – so make sure you watch them below!). The only thing better than his work is his personality, so I know you’ll love him!!!
