We might not know you (yet) but we hope to learn about you inside and out. What makes you cry? What makes you laugh? What makes you think? You are here for a very important reason. Whatever exciting, beautiful, painful, amazing, wonderful, crazy, utterly-human adventure you're on right now, we want to hear your story uncensored and unfiltered. We're listeners. We're storytellers. We're artists. We're Bella Luna Films.
- Annie + Logan
We are a husband-wife cinematography team based in the Seattle area. Our second date involved collaborating on a film project in college. Once we both graduated from the University of Washington studying film, media, and art, we combined our training with our passion for storytelling to give life to Bella Luna Films. We love Washington with all of its diversity, natural beauty, and, of course, its good food and coffee. When we aren't exploring, we can be found in bed snuggling up to Bella, our little pup.
Annie: "I didn't plan on being a full-time filmmaker. In fact, I have a master's degree in organizational development. I truly believed that I'd be working at some fancy corporation as a leadership or organizational development consultant. I knew I was interested in understanding human nature, psychology, and how our egos and souls show up in all sorts of situations. In a way, I still do that through filmmaking. I help people see their life from a different perspective in hopes that they can be inspired to live and love better."
Logan: “It wasn’t until I met Annie that I discovered the art of film. Annie encouraged me to apply to the Media & Communications program at the University of Washington. I finally got my hands on what it was like to shoot and edit a final project. Other than being a tech geek, I loved testing the limits and seeing all the different possibilities for capturing a single emotion or feeling. Our first project ever filmed together was Annie’s brother's wedding where we decided last minute to gift him with a wedding film. It was an exhilarating experience. From there, Bella Luna Films came to life. I especially enjoy how unique film is to all of the different arts where you can replay a moment in time over and over."
Last words: We love people infinitely more than we love things. It's the beautiful, nuanced emotions throughout the day that usually go unnoticed that we focus on. The little tear drop that falls from your father's face as he says how proud he is of you. The break in your best friend's voice quickly followed by their laughter as they try their very best to get through their toast speech. The quiet moment you have when you look at the love of your life and your excitement spills throughout your body in kisses, smiles, and 'can you believe it?' exclamations. This is why we do what we do. Filmmaking is how we live in this world with intention and purpose. Through our work, we are reminded of the human capacity to love, to be brave, to empathize, and to make a difference. Our collective stories are meant to be shared with the world - to inspire, to connect, to make others feel. We think human beings are pretty darn amazing and we want to share that with the world.
Ellen Degeneres said it best: "Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values."
"Annie and Logan are not only two of the nicest, chillest people you’re going to meet, they’re also hard-working professionals who are an absolute dream to work with. It’s about seven months after our wedding and I still haven’t made it through our video without tears streaming down my face. They created a video better than we could ever have imagined. They’re extremely flexible, creative and worth every damn penny."
