Family Film package available for bids this weekend!

20 Nov

It sure has been quiet around here! Fall is always our busiest time filming weddings and now we are focused on getting every film edited and into the hands of our clients before the holidays. But there are always side projects that come up that inspire us to get involved and share what we do for a good cause.


One such project is Bettye Hyde’s Co-operative Early Learning Centre’s annual fundraiser.  Thanks in part to the generosity our wonderful post-production houses, Niagara Custom Lab and Frame Discreet, we are donating and { Day in the Life } Family Film to their silent auction. There will be lots of other amazing items up for grabs such as original artwork, spa gift certificates, tickets to the NAC, and a fabulous photography session from Kim Ing Photography.

So if you have been wanting to book a Family Film session with { First Kiss Films }, this may be your chance to purchase one for much less with all proceeds going to an amazing school.

EVENT: Bettye Hyde Silent Auction
DATE: Saturday, November 23, 2014
TIME: 5:30pm – 7:30pm
LOCATION: All saints Church, 317 Chapel Street, Ottawa

Luxury wedding event this Sunday at Chateau Laurier

25 Nov

Engage OttawaThe fabulous team at Marry Me Productions has done it again – this time raising the standards of the wedding show experience. They have created a luxury event called ENGAGE and it is “dedicated to the stylish and sophisticated bride”. A select group of top wedding professionals were invited to showcase their work  and we are so excited to have been asked to be a part of this event! We’ll be setting up our signature 16mm film loop installation featuring a new handcrafted film and floral design by the talented Erin of Full Bloom. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the ENGAGE website or at the door.

The films of Bridget Farr

4 Nov

films of bridget farr(AKA moi, Bridget Redmond).

I am honoured to announce that the Canadian Film Institute (CFI) will be hosting an evening showcasing some of my films! The program will include from the last 15 years – many of which were produced under my maiden name (Bridget Farr). Don’t expect to see any wedding films in the program though. Most of the films that have been selected are art films created for the festival circuit and are quite different from the films I craft through { First Kiss Films }.

According to the CFI’s Executive Director, “Bridget Farr’s work has been consistently daring, experimenting with film form and approaches to storytelling. She is one of Ottawa’s most talented film artists, and we are thrilled to present her works as part of our Cafe EX series.”

The big night takes place this Thursday, November 7th within Saw Gallery here in Ottawa. Nine films will be screened and even some will be projected on 35mm and 16mm prints – the way film was meant to be seen! I will of course be there to discuss my work.
