After 6 months, we finally finished the film Sophia! This film was extremely difficult to make for many reasons. First, we had never told this type of story before so we weren’t sure what to expect. How much footage will we need? What kind of footage do we need? Should we focus on the parents? Maybe their first born? Secondly, we had to film on multiple occasions — five, to be exact — and we had to film them in between our regular jobs and all our weddings. And lastly, this was a film about my godchild, so there was extra pressure to make sure it was great.
We went with a more documentary-style film which was exciting because it was different than what we normally produce. Overall, we are very happy with the film and know that Sophia and her family will enjoy this film now, but even more so later in life.
