We are Andrew & Grace - guy who films things and girl who edits the things that are filmed.
We put every tiny molecule of our tiny selves into each film. We don't cut more than one film a week because we like to get really attached to every creation we turn out - it's a big old personal process for us and that’s the way we like it.
Now we could tell you about ourselves or you could just do what you came to this website to do and watch a film.
So here’s a dorky holiday video of us running around New York this past summer - shot on Super 8 film and made with wine & love.
ANDREW is a
Finley NSW Boy disguised as a Melbournian
size five shoe-wearer
a very talented Cinematographer
THE SERIOUS THINGS ABOUT ANDREW
Apart from his first 'Hello' and his last 'Goodbye', you can expect a few lame dad jokes and a constant cheesy grin from Andrew. Andrew's filming has a very natural style to it. He enjoys standing back and capturing what happens organically rather than directing you around on the day (he likes to leave this up to your wonderful photographer). He aims to create a fun and relaxed environment, and you often won't even realise he's there. You won't spot any fancy big equipment - just Andrew, his camera, and his keen eye for composing a unique and beautiful shot.
THE NOT SO SERIOUS THINGS ABOUT ANDREW
Andrew is the best worst dancer you’ll ever meet, he can kind of shuffle but not in a cool way - in the way that will embarrass your children (he doesn’t believe it but Grace really digs it). Andrew enjoys talking SO MUCH and doesn’t like hanging up the phone even when reception has been lost for over a minute (Grace has timed this and he will continue to say ‘Hel…hello?’ until the other person hangs up).
Andrew buys too much camera gear, don’t be like Andrew.
GRACE is a
Bellarine Peninsula Girl disguised as a Melbournian
a very talented Film Editor
THE SERIOUS THINGS ABOUT GRACE
Grace is the behind the scenes magic of Bottlebrush Films. Her editing is all about piecing together the footage that best reflects your personality. She has a tendency to lean towards using the unmanufactured moments that occur on your day, so you won't end up with an overly cinematic short film of two strangers, but a raw documentary with real moments and real people. She's extremely talented when it comes to selecting shots from hours of footage, and strives to include the pieces that she can see will mean
a lot to a couple.
THE NOT SO SERIOUS THINGS ABOUT GRACE
When Grace typed ‘serious’ the first thing she thought of was ‘Sirius Black’. Grace enjoys dancing to the point where her feet are constantly sore, but not the professional kind of dancing - the cutting shapes kind. Grace enjoys saving half drowned bugs from pools and rivers before their early demise (see butterfly Tabatha in our New York video above - she can vouch for us).
Grace buys too much clothing, don’t be like Grace.
