DO I REALLY NEED A VIDEOGRAPHER FOR MY CHILD’S BIRTHDAY?
Surprisingly, this is a question more commonly asked than you’d normally think. My own position is this:
Videos are a great way to capture memories of your child’s special day, and are sometimes even more effective than photos.
My own favorite usage of video is this: a few years after Sofie’s (my eldest) birthday party, I let her watch the video coverage of her own 1st birthday. You should see her reaction!
I think videos offer a different dimension to the story of your child, and will serve as the perfect souvenir of his/her special day. Just make sure you preserve it well for posterity! A good way to do this is to upload the videos via Dropbox, iCloud, YouTube, or any other web service.
So. Assuming that you are on the hunt for a videographer, who should you consider? As with all other suppliers, my own philosophy about getting a videographer is – if you’re going to spend for event styling anyway, then make sure you record it well by getting a good videographer! Which leads me to:
THE NO. 1 VIDEOGRAPHER ON MY RECO LIST
I have the firm belief that for every artist or creative showing off their wares out there, there are a few special ones that really show good work. Being a creative is a tough job: you are more or less required to produce unique material day in and day out. And none is more creative than Lemon Three Films.
Just take a look at what they’ve done for Marco’s 7th Star Wars Birthday Party (styled by Party Magic, of course!):
This film reel blew me away. There is that dramatic intro of these Star Wars characters, with a moving spotlight shining light and taking it away. Then a transition into more fun, light-hearted music where scenes of guests enter the party and Marco preps for his big day. There is a clear story line here, but is arranged in such a way that is creative, unexpected, and not boring at all.
Artz of Lemon Three, the master director and editor, clearly did all the right things here.
What I like about Lemon Three. Lemon Three is made up of the rock-solid duo of Artz and MG, and so far have delivered in every party we work on together. Here are the things I like about them:
- Churns out great, creative work.
- Is professional, prompt, and easy to deal with.
THE LEMON THREE FILMS WALL OF FAME
Being a creative myself, I couldn’t resist but create my own visual collection of Lemon Three’s great works (all of these parties were styled by yours truly at Party Magic, of course!). I am the furthest thing from a techie, so this took me a couple of hours to create!
And so it is with great pride that I hereforth present the Lemon Three Wall of Fame!

THE FINAL WORD
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your vision of a wonderfully styled party come to fruition. And it is even more satisfying enjoying the hard work you’ve put into planning this party thru the lens of a well-crafted, well-thought out video feature.
