Sisters Kitty and Daisy started filming weddings and parties in 2010.
Most people know us for our lip-sync videos: we choose a song with the host, circulate among guests at a wedding or party, ask them to sing a line from the song, then edit the clips together. Nothing is rehearsed, so the videos have a home-made feel to them. We have done over 1,000 of them, at all kinds of events, all over the world. If you want to know more, look here.
Towards the end of 2019 we started a 'People We Like' section which profiles people who are doing interesting things for business, social good, their own pleasure or the sheer hell of it. A couple of times a month, we send out an email Bulletin telling people about the latest interviews. We're always looking for new people to profile, so if you know someone who fits the bill, please suggest them.
When coronavirus hit, our clients had to cancel their 2020 events so our normal business was hit for six. We asked Matt, our IT genius, if he could develop a way for clients to create their own lip-sync videos and 3 weeks later, it was ready. Now, even if people are isolated hundreds of miles apart, they can use our site to co-ordinate Home Movies, then ask us to edit them into a finished film.
Some people who saw our Home Movies wondered if they could do the same thing but with their voices on the video instead of the music. They wanted members of their family scattered around the country to do selfie clips wishing a grandparent happy birthday, and piece them together into one video 'card'. Matt is on it, and soon we will be launching a 'Spoken Word' version of Home Movies which will allow you to drop video, photos and music on to an edit bar and do your own editing.
Daisy also runs Pistol Pinup, the Instagram account which celebrates entrepreneurial women.
We love to get feedback and hear new ideas, so please do get in contact.
