I really enjoyed working with Twenty-one films! Phil, Aleksandra, and Somerland were all very nice, professional, and helpful! Aleksandra and Somerland worked with us on our wedding day and they were great! They were always present, but never intrusive, which is something I truly appreciated! I cannot wait to see the final product and I highly recommend Twenty-one films!
I can not say enough great things about this company! Phil and his staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. I am so grateful to have a professional video of my entire wedding day, The day goes by SO fast and as the Bride I missed SO much of what actually happened. Watching the video lets me relive that magical day over and over again. Also, I was able to order multiple copies and it has been wonderful sending the DVDs to elderly family members who were not able to travel to the wedding. Hiring Twenty-One Films to capture our day was hands down THE best decision I made in the planning of our wedding!
Twenty-One Films is the best videographer in North Carolina! Not only were they professional but they were very down to earth and so much fun. I met them face to face just one day before my wedding and they bacame instant family. My husband and I chose to do a destination wedding in Asheville and only invited our immediate families therefore, I didn't have a maid or matron of honor and because I have no sisters either, it was just my mom helping me get ready. Jess, Phil's wife and right hand man, stepped in and filled those shoes. She kept everyone in such good spirits and made sure that I didn't forget anything. I couldn't have done it without her! I know without a doubt that my wedding video will be everything I dreamt of and more. Phil has such a creative eye for film and his attention to detail is amazing. They will forever be a part of our special day, not only as our videographers but as true friends.
Our wedding day film looks like something out of The Sundance Film Festival. It is absolutely incredible!! I honestly can't stop watching it. Phil and his team were able to capture every memorable moment of our day, and presented it in a way that allows us to relive the day anytime we like. My wife tells me that I have extremely high standards, but this experience far exceeded my expectations. You may pay a little more than you would with the average videographer, but there is nothing average about Twenty One Films. This is not just some guy sticking a cheap camera on a tripod and walking away...This is a Hollywood style film crew. Our guests thought they were going to be on the Discovery Channel. Unbelievable!!
I was very impressed with the camera shots and angles and some of the moments that were captured... they were so unobtrusive and were able to catch everyone so naturally ( its EXACTLY what I wanted). The editing of the 2 cameras into the documentary was seamless and natural. The panning was fantastic and was able to help reenact the energy in the room. You should have heard my family scream our first time watching on Christmas Day when we saw the subtitles of Polish to English ( so clever!). Phil was able to capture the magic (which is an art) that I felt in my heart and I am forever grateful to him and his wife! I will be passing his name to all of my (now newly engaged) bridesmaids (we started a trend). I also would like to add that I believe there is also something to say about a married couple capturing your day.... they just get it...
I would highly recommend 21 Films for your wedding videography! When planning my wedding I was apprehensive to hire a videographer. which would further tighten my budget. I thought, well I am paying for a photographer so why do I need a videographer? I am so grateful that my best friend convinced me to look into videographers, and even more grateful that I found Phil at 21 Films! After an extensive search, I was really impressed with the quality of videos I found on 21 Films website and I called Phil only a few months before my wedding. Thank goodness he had an opening our wedding weekend! He was so flexible and answered all of my questions. He met with me and my fiance (now husband!) and help walk us through the whole day. He really helped us think through the flow of the day and offered great tips and suggestions without being pushy. We really valued his expertise!
On our wedding day, Phil and his team were so professional and I didn't notice they were there half the time! They spent the whole day with us and were so pleasant!
The final product is quality!!!! I can not say enough how grateful I was that we hired Phil. He captured moments that I forgot/didn't get to see. Everyone says that your wedding day is a blur, and for me that was the truth. I remember having a great day and I do remember many special moments...and the photos were great to help me remember others...but the video we received from Phil was priceless! Phil and his team are committed to quality and it shows. The films, both the 5 minute wedding day short film, and the longer full day film were beautifully edited and captured the whole wonderful day perfectly. We were so satisfied and so are our families! Another bonus is that Phil posts the wedding day highlight film online. This allowed us to share the link with my husband's grandparents in Russia who weren't able to be at the wedding. It was so special to us that they are able to see footage of our wedding!
I would highly recommend to any bride-to-be to hirer a videographer, and especially 21 Films!
One of the first things we knew we wanted was videography. It really captures and lets you experience the emotion and details of the day. From the second your DVD starts you are able to relive each and every part of your big day. Together with our photography we are able to say we have everything completely and successfully documented.
Phil McInnis, the owner and lead videographer, and his wife/videography partner, Jess, were with us at every point. They were fun to be around and everything was easy and unobtrusive. They did a great job incorporating each and every moment and Philâ€™s overall quality of work is unmatched. He always responded quickly to email and if there was ever a concern he went above and beyond to ensure everything would turn out right. He was always focused on making us 100% happy in the end and that is a rare find sometimes. The DVD packaging itself is incredibly well done; I loved the personalization and layout like a big picture film. Everything we had a checklist of to be included or incorporated was without worry. All big moments were creatively highlighted and he was very watchful to include even those moments we as brides wanted to see but the day didnâ€™t slow down for. That in itself made it 100% worth it to me. Overall it was a perfect balance of cinematic and documentary styling.
And Iâ€™m a big spreadsheet person and I found twenty-one films to be especially worth the value and the additional options they put forward are some of the only offerings Iâ€™ve seen out there and are, again, well worth the price. My recommendation is to add or get a package with the rehearsal footage and guest interviews and anything else you can add- they are priceless parts to include. Youâ€™ll be so glad you went with twenty-one films and...
New Bern, NC Wedding
Twenty-One Films was awesome! If you can somehow get them for your wedding, you will be very lucky.
They listen. They make great suggestions. They care. Phil fit in here like one of the family from the very start. During the wedding, we hardly knew they were there.
Their finished video product was mesmerizing. We all sat watching pretty much transfixed. They take the time for careful attention to approach shots to the homes, the venues. They know when to hold a shot and when to keep the camera moving. They deftly utilize multiple camera angles in the church, carefully edited, which helps tremendously. They take wonderful shots of all the guests. They use smooth editing and transitions. Phil's work on our rehearsal dinner was particularly difficult due to a slide presentation that he needed to film, and he mastered it perfectly. Shots of the reception and dancing were perfect.
There was a huge amount of raw footage, and they somehow managed to capture it all in the finished product. When we finished watching, we had more compliments for Phil's talented work than of the wedding itself. Phil is the only reason I only wish I had more daughters to marry off.
If I could give higher scores I would. Phil was by far one of the most professional vendors we have ever worked with. He made our day and the stressful time leading up to it, calm and just wonderful. His passion for his work combined with his attention to detail made our wedding video our favorite part of our wedding. We have watched it so many times and our friends and family love it and want to use him for their weddings. I cannot say enough good things about Twenty One Films, they are the best in wedding videography.
I can't say enough good things about Phil McInnis. From the moment we met with him we knew he would be the one to film our wedding. He was extremely professional, yet so extremely friendly and easy to work with. He asked us all kinds of questions to be sure he filmed exactly what we wanted. He made the planning phase extremely easy and joyful in terms of the videography. Him and his team were professional, prompt, and lots of fun to work with. During the editing he asked what we wanted, but also added his own creativity which was very important for me. The video he made was the best thing (other than my husband!) that I received from our wedding day. Hiring him as your videographer is completely worth it in all aspects. I have always loved photos and knew that would be important to me, but the video captures so much more. It is such a fast and fun-filled day that you miss or forget so much. But you get catch all of that on the video. I will always have that as a memory and couldn't thank Phil enough for that. I think it would be easy for me to say that the other vendors were good, but there probably is someone better out there. But I truly do not think there is a better videographer for your wedding then Twenty-One Films!
We hired Phil to record our wedding day. We were a bit hesitant at first because we were on a tight budget, but since my husband's family was traveling from England and Spain, and most weren't able to attend, we knew we needed to have the best possible video. Phil was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. He met with me and explained his packages and costs, along with giving me options for customized packages because budget was an issue. We ended up going with his most popular package and are very glad we did. Phil was able to capture moments that we either don't remember or never would have seen during the wedding day. I grew up in the church where we were married, and some of his shots made it look like a completely new and beautiful location. We couldn't have asked for more! We would both recommend him to anyone looking for a videographer.
I was a family member and guest at a wedding with Philip McInnis as videographer, but I was there from the planning to the toasts. Many people did a great job on this wedding, but I was really impressed with the videography. Phil took just the right footage but was never in the way of the wedding party, the guests, or the photographer. Now that I've seen the video and the highlight video, I have to give this company 5 stars. Very professional and the product is amazing!
Being a bride is extremely stressful, so when I met Phil and he made everything SO easy, it was a dream come true! From start to finish, he was so accomodating and flexible. It was hands down the best decision I made!
Before the wedding, Phil filmed a montage of clips of my husband and I in a local garden, which became part of our wedding highlights video. Phil is so open to suggestion, you really feel like you can make the experience all your own. During our wedding day, he was so professional and curtious, several of my guests commented on how nice he was!
When we got the video back, my husband and I were beyond thrilled at how well it turned out. The video offers the complete wedding ceremony, as well as special sections, including the highlights reel. Our highlights section is set to music and I can't count how many time we have watched it! It's amazing to look back and see all the moments that Phil captures that you don't even remember. We love our pictures, but getting to listen back on your vows is truly priceless.
By far, my video was the most worthwhile investment. Phil's service is reasonable, he is dependable and he will make your wedding memorable! Hire him today :)
Phil McInnis is an excellent videographer and one of the easiest to work with individuals I have had the privilege of being involved with.
He was extremely responsive to all emails answering quickly and professionally. We contacted him fairly close to the date of the wedding (about 6 weeks) and organized everything over phone and email.
He offers a "wedding highlights" video which is worth EVERY penny. My coworker in Atlanta saw ours and immediately contacted Phil for her own wedding (he traveled from Raleigh to Atlanta!). Make sure to get a package that includes this amazing feature.
Phil was unfamiliar with our venue so came to the rehearsal to get oriented without charging any additional fees (he did not film that evening). He also filmed us at a more casual location and spliced these images of just my groom and I into the highlights video.
Phil is now offering two camera services and the video from my coworker's wedding is excellent.
Twenty-One Films goes above and beyond for you on the day of your event. I could not had a more gracious and flexible professional like Phil. He put me at ease to every question and worry I had about my wedding and the final product turned out beautifully! He listens to the details you want in your video; and with his artistic sense and direction really captures all the fun and intimate moments. I remembered very little of the event, and the video was just so fun to watch with my husband; we go to see the perspective of all the guests.
Phil is an excellent videographer and I would recommend him to any future couple getting married who wants to capture their event perfectly!!
Great product! We couldn't be happier with the video. The owner is flexibly and easy to work with. Getting our video did take longer than we thought (almost 6.5 months) but it was worth the wait!
