The Wedding Movie
posted by Aarpn Markham

Lots of people dream of being the star of a movie. I've created a package with my videography company, The Film Perspective, where we make a short film starring the bride and groom that tells the story about them and their relationship. They then can screen it in front of all their fans a.k.a their friends and family during the reception at their wedding. I started doing videography because I used to make short films as a hobby so it ended up being a natural progression to create this package for my business.

The site gives students who are interested in sports writing an opportunity to gain valuable exposure and experience to the industry. As our site continues to grow, we hope to build a relationship with the St. Louis Cardinals in an effort to gain press access to games.
