“The Philippines is a fierce competitive ground for wedding filmmakers and I feel that Looks and Mojo gives me an edge.”
Jason Magbanua has been an event videographer for over 10 years and has a very special talent for Same Day Edits (SDE).
SDEs are essentially a short video produced from the footage of the wedding shot earlier in the day, usually only incorporating footage from pre-ceremony, ceremony and post ceremony, which is then shown at the reception as a recap of the wedding.
Jason has an incredible gift for capturing those personal moments but in a very unobtrusive way, and not surprisingly has permanent waiting list of couples wanting his services. We were excited to learn that Jason was a fan of Magic Bullet Looks and Mojo.
Jason told us “Magic Bullet gives me all the control I need for grading. Render times are fast even for Same Day Edits where time is of the essence. The Philippines is a fierce competitive ground for wedding filmmakers and I feel that Looks and Mojo gives me an edge.”
As an internationally recognized speaker who has been a featured presenter at events from San Francisco to Sydney and the Winner of dozens of WEVA Creative Excellence Awards, Jason has won multiple Gold CEAs for Wedding-Day Edit production. Based in Makati City, the Philippines, he is the subject of Bio, a collaborative film project developed by five award-winning Filipino studios and premiered at Weddings at Work (W@W) Videofest 2011.
Having watched Bio, I can see why Jason is popular with his clients, outside of his talent as a wedding videographer. There is a real warmth and affection for Jason from the brides and grooms who hire him. He seems like a truly nice guy who you’d want at your wedding, with or without that creative camera.
