Finally our film of the week comes from Humdrum Films who say:

“We worked along side our good friend Joseph Koprek on this wedding. We shot some Super 8mm film (the first time we’d done this at a wedding) and intercut it with our regular footage. We’re really proud of the film we made, and more importantly, the couple loved it.”

And so do we! What do you think?
