It’s time!  It’s time for
well-produced, good quality video & audio.

BPope Productions thinks it’s time to put an end to bad video.  An end to shaky shots, cheesy editing wipes, horrendous sound, and an end to bad stories.

I provide cinematic HD/4K video for wedding films, professional photography, business film, live event streaming, motion graphics, aerial cinematography, or documentary storytelling. What makes me different? Unlike most videographers, I shoot on a 4K mirrorless interchangeable lens camera which give you a look you won’t find on most cameras and provides a “film” look compared to regular “video.” This allows me to provide you with the latest in video recording technology as well as a discipline in cinematography.

I am involved of all aspect of production which included pre-production, shooting, editing, directing, live production, motion graphics, writing, producing, interviewing, supervising, and teaching. I have also attended the National Association of Broadcasters convention for the past 10 years to stay on top of the industry with new techniques and technology.  Film production is my life.

I have 15+ years of experience and produced over 400+ live events such as graduations, sporting events, live events, wedding films, aerial cinematography, and live video streaming.
