They saying that this days it’s hard to build strong relationships. People don’t want to get married or marriage doesn’t last for a while.

Life.Film has strong family values and we believe in love.

By being a wedding videographers for many years we had had a chance to interview more than 500 couples. Our main question was: “What is the main keystone of strong relationships?”

And the answer is very simple but same time is very powerful.

The key of last-long relationships is the respect to each other traditions, values, backgrounds, and personalities. What is respect- it is acceptance and embracing of who you and your significant one are.

We really wish that our film will inspire millions of people all over the world to lose the fear of building the family! We want to spark your heart!

The Story:

Desolate Dream

This story about bride and groom who’s love being tested on the wedding day. By going through the wedding preparation couple forget about the main point of the sacrament - unconditional love and respect to each other. They start a fight because he saw her in the wedding gown before the ceremony and in the minute of anger she throw her ring on the floor...

But the universe decides to give them one more chance and teleport them to a desert, the place where you forget about superstitions, the place which opens their eyes to the most important things - true love means respect and support. On the verge of death, the exchanging wedding vows that give them a ticket back to the wedding day. They have one more chance to live the same day from the very beginning, but this time without the fight.

First Day

Shooting in Malibu

Life.Film Wedding Feature Film

The location for the first shooting day was Malibu Solstice Estate- a popular wedding and event venue in Los Angeles. The estate is located on the top of Santa Monica Mountains and has a breathtaking view to Malibu. All crew and the cast started the first shooting day early morning- at 6AM. It was a very long and productive day, we covered more than 20 scenes- which is big. The time was flying super fast and our team wasn’t even noticed how the day passed by. On the first day, we were filming the bride and groom getting ready scenes, the fight and the first look.

Second Day

Shooting in a Desert

To say that this day was difficult is to say nothing. Life.FIlm really wanted to find the wilderness and to film the desert scene in the place where you can’t meet people. We started the day very early in the morning. All crew gathered at the pickup location at 3 in the morning and we all headed east toward the Nevada Desert.

After 4 hrs of the drive, we parked our RV and started the long 1-hour walk toward the filming location. Imagine that you have to bring water, food, equipment, cloth, makeup for the entire day and you have to pass the sand dunes. Yes, we really wanted to make it happened. It seemed unreachable when we started the hike, but the dream and the idea were very strong! So we made it! It was worth it!
