I have always loved movies. Good ones. Especially dramas.
For seven years of my life I worked in my uncle’s photography and videography studio in NY.
In those seven years I shot hundreds of wedding videos. Yes, you read it right; hundreds! I also edited all of those wedding videos and more into a single, three-hour wedding video! And that’s where my story begins.
After editing so many weddings into a one three-hour video, I decided that it was enough. I couldn’t watch those long documentaries anymore! I needed something new, something interesting, something different, something that I could be proud of!
I took the time for myself and I started to think about how I want my movies to look.
The first thing that came to mind was that I must tell a story – a real one, Trust me, every couple has a story!
In those years spent in my uncle’s studio I learned how important family and traditions are, so I decided that those two super important things will have to play a big role in my movies.
I also wanted to make sure that viewers who never met the bride and groom knew something about them minutes after they started watching the movie.
I decided that the time for special effects and other cheesy things is over. Another important thing I decided was to keep everything real. I like realism. I can give my couples some advice on how to do things that they already doing, like putting the dress on in a way that will look better in camera, but I will not tell them to do things that they are not doing naturally! In other words, I want to make sure we keeping everything REAL!
It was with those facts in mind that I made the decision to open Roey Yadgar Films.
I am very proud of the movies we have created since opening in 2008, as well as those that we are creating now.
