Switzerfilm started with a $150 wedding video on a VHS tape and in just
a few years transformed itself into a
Wedding Photo + Video dream team
that works with the wedding divisions of Martha Stewart and Disney.
The Switzer team made the transition
from just video and later added photography. They believe the wedding
world of photo + video is still in the
first inning and anyone participating
in this business can take part in this
phenomenal growth story. Most of the
company’s films are edited and presented the very same day the wedding
took place. Everyone on the Switzer
team has the desire and passion to
show customers something they’ve
never seen before.
What are your tips for those who want to grow their filmmaking
Just go out and do it. Taking action with that first step is the hardest. Start by making videos
of things you are passionate about.
Offer both photo and cinema and produce “Same Day Edits.” This will give you immediate explosive revenue growth.
What is one thing you’ve learned over the years in the filmmaking
business that has stuck with you?
Relationships trump everything.
