About Stephan Boeker Films

What does it even mean, "to be a storyteller?"

Stephan is not going to lie: on July 21st 2016, he had had it. He couldn't do it anymore. He couldn’t use that word “storyteller” or read about others self professing themselves to be that, "a storyteller". If he had to sit in front of that edit suite even just one more minute pumping out what had become the standard dime-a-dozen wedding music video, he was just going to cry or worse, throw his MacPro out the window in a hissy fit.

On the one hand, the team had built a successful wedding film company that up until that point made so many couples happy, but on the other, they had become human tripods pressing a red record button as they let the insidious and often-mocked wedding video box dictate how they should do things. They had succumbed to the formulaic assembly of:

  • drone shot openers (here’s a challenge for you: preview any given wedding video out there, especially in Hawaii, and 95% or more of them will start with a drone shot, and what's worse, many of them will continue with a second and third drone shot, then formulaically follow those up with some detail shot of flowers or a palm tree or the admittedly beautiful Hawaii environment… go ahead, check it out);
  • haphazardly and randomly assembled speech snippets;
  • music video theme, oftentimes with lyric music underlaying those haphazardly and randomly assembled speech snippets, which of course creates a cacophony of words cross-moginating with other words.

Even though the business had been making the team a living, they couldn't go on doing the same old thing, expecting different results and happier creative lives. Something just had to change.

One day, Stephan received an email in his inbox. It was from a 5-time Emmy-Award-Winning Filmmaker, Patrick, who dared the reader to step-up and learn what it really means to "tell a story."

Stephan replied, days later plunked down $6000 and began a journey that would teach him the science and art of storytelling and would take him to far off places, really telling stories that were so far outside the box of wedding music videos that once again, he could cry. Only this time he would cry tears of joy as he and other hungry filmmakers journeyed to places like:

  • Japan
  • Okinawa
  • Fiji
  • The French Riviera
  • The Colorado Rockies
  • Portland, Oregon
  • and the Hawaiian Islands

… telling stories that actually applied scientific principles as well as the nuanced art of storytelling.

Since that fateful meltdown in July, 2016 in his edit suite when he exposed himself as a storytelling fraud, his team and he have been on a quest to blow up the wedding film genre box and change the expectation of what a wedding film can be.

They hope you already see the difference in their work. But what’s even more is that Stephan sincerely wants you to imagine your untold story as the one story that will top every other they have ever told and become the new gold standard that touches the audiences’ hearts and moves their minds. The team wants your story to redefine what a wedding film can be, your desires, hopes, dreams and love to raise the bar for wedding film storytelling.

Thank you so much for embarking on this journey of purpose-driven creative with Stephan and his team and they can't wait to discover your film and tell your epic story.

    Great webcasting services

    We hired Stephan to help us with webcasting our ceremony back to our friends and family at home. This was a very last minute decision and we were very fortunate that he was still available. He was great with accommodating us, and helping us find the right service for us. Our friends and family back at home said the quality was exceptional, and his shots and footage made them feel like they were on the island with us.

    We highly recommend Stephan and his video services, he has a great eye and captures the moments beautifully.

    Thank you so much, Heather! It was such a treat to fly out to Kona and webcast your and Mike's wedding. What a special location you choose and how sweet of you to include everyone, including those who couldn't make the trip out. Have a wonderful, wonderful Holiday Season and an awesome 2019 as Mr. & Ms. Dills!

    Elopement in Maui

    Having decided to elope in Maui, we wanted to have the opportunity to capture the events of the day to ensure that neither of us missed anything and share with friends and family back home in New Jersey. Stephan has an art for putting the love story together. His ability to actionize words with the motion is a true testament of his precision and passion to you. Highly Recommend!

    The best Maui has to offer to share your special day with your loved ones that couldn't make the trip to Maui. This is a no-brainer. Have your ceremony recorded live and share it with your world! These guys are super good at what they do and know their stuff. They are unobtrusive and professional and will make sure you feel at ease and are thrilled with the results.

    I've worked with Live Maui Webcast on numerous occasions and they always do such a good job of documenting the wedding. It's been such a treat for couples to share their wedding day with friends and family who could not make it. We recommend them to all of our clients.

    Live Maui Webcast got it going on. I've shot SO MANY weddings, with these guys recording in live & sending it out across the world to family & friends that just couldn't be here for the BIG event. How cool is that? Gotta love technology & "Live Maui Webcasts & DVD!"
