Cinematic Studios is a leading film and video production company located in the San Francisco Bay Area that specializes in using narrative filmmaking techniques. Since 2002, we have been a producer of wedding movies that surpass the imagination. It has always been our goal to create productions that take the viewer on an adventure of love, romance, family, and friendship. Each production is unique. Whether you want the elegance and timelessness of our Classic Romance style, the fun and light-heartedness of a Romantic Comedy, or something more daring and cutting edge like a Contemporary Romance, we create a wedding movie that speaks to YOU. (We've even done a Marvel Comics style wedding).
President and creative director Ron Dawson has a passion and talent that has helped him become a two-time Videographer of the Year for the Bay Area Professional Videographer's Association, a columnist for the national magazine EventDV, president of the Wine County New Media Association, an international award-winning video producer, and a speaker/instructor at international conventions. In 2007, Ron was also named to the EventDV 25, one of the top 25 most influential event videographers in the industry as voted by his peers.
For more information, please contact our Director of Weddings and Personal Events, Hilarie Hsu. Hilarie can tell you all there is about working with us because she was one of our brides.

I absolutely LOVE this Cinematic Studios (although I think their name is now Dare Dreamer). Ron Dawson is an AMAZING cinematographer and really fun to hang out with - which definitely helps with loosening up in front of the camera. And the editing that he does is awesome! He shot both our "Love Story" (dating story) and wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything more. People are still raving out the "Love Story" which we showed at our wedding.Sent on 08/05/2009
As for the business side of the company, Hilarie Hsu is fabulous as well. She is prompt, efficient, nice, and gets things done! We had initially thought that we couldn't afford to hire Cinematic Studios, but she really worked with our budget to help make it work. I sacrificed chiavari chairs for this company and don't regret it at all! =]
Bottom line, if you're willing to pay a little more (or willing to budge on something else), this is DEFINITELY worth it. Although I'm a big photography snob, I didn't realize how important video is as well. Book 'em!

This vendor maybe a little expensive for a lot of couples out there but if video is important Wedding Flix is well worth it. We knew there were only two things that we would have to remember our day by, video & photos.Sent on 11/29/2008
Ron & Hilarie at Cinematic Studios were phenomenal. Their videos were amazing and they do same day edits. We had them do a same day wedding highlight video that we could bring to friends & family overseas. The product was truly spectacular. The video is like a real movie timed to the music and really tells the story of the day.
They were easy to work with and happy to get on conference calls, email and if we wanted in person meetings. In addition, they worked very well with our photographer.
The samples that you see on their blog are very representative of their work. Ours looks just like one of them.
I had the pleasure of working with Ron and his crew this last year at Clos LaChance Winery. There are only a few videography companies that offer same-day video presentations, and Ron's was top notch. Both style and substance, I highly recommend Cinematic Studios.
