As JPod Productions continues to grow as a leading Boston Wedding Videographer, we have expanded our staff in the last year. One of the bright, young faces that have fit right into our storytelling style of wedding films is Mia Major.
Mia came to JPod Productions from Western New England University (WNE). Every spring, I speak in Professor Brenda Garton’s Advanced Television Broadcasting class at WNE. It’s a great opportunity to meet some budding, young professionals as we share our Boston Wedding Videos, corporate projects and previous television broadcasting experience. Two of our part-time workers have come out of Western New England University’s communication and broadcasting program.
Even though Brenda hoped for a career in television for Mia, she came to JPod Productions with her primary interest being wedding cinematography. One of the first things that stuck out to me about Mia was her natural ability to find emotion and utilize music within films to accentuate that emotion. It is a hard quality to teach, but Mia already had the ability to spot emotion right away in our work, as well as in other wedding filmmaker’s work that we collaborate with on a regular basis. Secondly, I love the passion she has towards her wedding films. It’s another quality that you cannot just teach someone.
Mia is now a regular second filmmaker for us when Anne isn’t available, and a third filmmaker on days when we are producing a Same Day Edit wedding film. Mia has also quickly become one of our lead editors as she edits documentary, highlight and feature films on a regular basis. She has been a tremendous asset to our Boston wedding videos and has quickly become a good friend. In her spare time, Mia enjoys trying out new recipes, hiking, and most of all, spending time with her Boston Terrier, Scout.
