Today we were reflecting on why we got into this film business and how much we wanted our very first promotional film to capture the spirit of Terra Mia’s brand in a stylistic and cinematic way. We wanted everything perfect and we wanted our client to love what we did as much as we loved what we were doing. It was important that we were creating a video that would tell their story and captivate their audience and compel them to take action with a phone call or email.
The results were better than we could have imagined. Within a few months, the venue was sold out for the entire year! Soon after, the venue was sold out for the following year before the new year even began. Our client gained thousands of viewers watching their video. Many of Terra Mia’s clients commented that it was the video that excited them about finding the perfect venue. Watching the video provoked an emotion of excitement in visualizing their dream wedding being held at that venue. No other form of media can do that!
On the day of filming, owners, Rich and Tracy, were rushing around trying to tie up loose ends. Millions of things were running through their minds as we were setting up lighting, cameras and sound equipment. We had a small window of opportunity to sit them down and record their story and vision for Terra Mia. It was a spontaneous interview and so they were unfamiliar with the questions we had prepared. As filmmakers/story tellers, you never know how an interview will go or how well the person being interviewed will sound. But the true hearts of Rich and Tracy shined during the interview. Their desire for their guests to experience Paso Robles like no other and have an unforgettable event at Terra Mia was very evident. They truly wanted to make it a special and memorable place for guests.
Terra Mia is a stunning venue in Paso Robles that provided really gorgeous footage. Some of its special features are not only the lake with waterfalls, but also the large golden stones throughout. This property is surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills of vineyards that frame the venue with rustic wood buildings. As the sun sets over the vineyards, the artistic lighting illuminates and reflects off of the vast water features making it a magical place. We love filming events there!
Below is our Kudo quote from Terra Mia owners:
“Amazing work! Amazing service! Amazing people! Jim and Kim from Windward Productions are not only the most professional folks with state of the art equipment, they are great to work with and the end product goes beyond expectations. They have worked a couple times so far at our events and while being almost stealth while filming, they capture the event and all the special moments so completely. I hope to have them working with us many, many more times!”
