hey, TRUE CALLING!
I’m Chelsea Kanstrup, founder and lead videographer at Paper Heart Films. I tell stories - all kinds of them! I started my company in 2011, and for five years I focused on telling wedding stories by making wedding films. I still film a lot of weddings, and I absolutely love them! Not only do I love the fast paced nature of a wedding day and the quick thinking that goes into every shot, but I absolutely love finding hidden stories within such a big day. I love the challenge of finding a great story to tell, even if the story isn’t immediately evident.
Here are a couple of my favourites:
As my business took off in the wedding industry, I started to produce short promotional videos for small local businesses. What I enjoy most about working with small businesses is the same thing I love about working with couples getting married - finding interesting hidden stories. Every business has a story to tell, and I work with businesses to create series of short videos to help them reach their business goals. I sit with each entrepreneur to determine what their biggest goals and challenges are, and then search through their business to find interesting ways to create videos that help meet those goals. It’s a blast, and I’m just about to launch an arm of the business focusing on working with small businesses.
Here are a few of my favourites so far:
And finally, I’m also about to launch the third arm of Paper Heart Films - family films. These have been a blast, and I love capturing families and creating a snapshot in time for them.
Here are a couple of family stories:
I look forward to the opportunity to work with True Calling. It wasn’t until recently that I came across your company, but I love your films and how they showcase regular people doing interesting things that they’re extraordinarily passionate about. I believe that my storytelling, documentary style of filmmaking will be a good fit with the way you tell stories.
