What is it about New York? More and more, New York wedding and event video clients are reaching out to Philadelphia, our city of brotherly love, to bring in CinemaCake. Why? First, Manhattan is a short two-hour drive for our Philly-based cinematographers and Long Island is just a little farther. This means it is easy for our teams to get in and many times we don’t event have to charge travel fees. Secondly, there are a LOT of New Yorkers and we’re finding that the top local filmmakers get gobbled up pretty quickly. There is just more demand for our type of films than there is supply.
Because of this new demand, we are developing our local New York team of filmmakers, putting CinemaCake wedding films within reach of even more clients.

We don’t ‘Pay to Play.’ When New Yorkers hire CinemaCake, they don’t have to worry about the higher fees and aggravation that come along with the locals who sometimes must pay a percentage to the venue or a particular planner. CinemaCake does not ‘pay to play’ and is proud to be a strong opponent to the payola nonsense that is common in New York. Sure, this means that certain venues may not put us on their published lists, but the folks who do refer us appreciate the honesty of referring a company by merit. It’s a win-win.

As CinemaCake celebrates its tenth year in business, we realize our New York and New Jersey relationships are stronger than ever, so much so that I have gotten more involved in their local New York Videographers and New Jersey Videographers professional association, the NJVA. I joined the NJVA because it has long been known as a leader in education and networking for the videographers and filmmakers in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In fact, the International Wedding and Event Videographers Association (WEVA) is holding a conference there next week!
Our CinemaCake teams are just as “at home” in your city as we are in ours, so CONTACT US and order your own CinemaCake.
