Chris is also a really swell guy. Some say he's not as swell as Darren, but I would respectfully disagree.

Ever since I was a kid, I loved telling stories and being told stories. That’s what editing is all about. I was always fascinated by the way movies and tv shows were able to tell stories and enact such strong emotion from the audience. It became a dream of mine to one day hopefully give an audience that same feeling that I always enjoyed.

Currently an experienced Cinematographer/Editor working in the wedding video field. BA in Video Production from Webster University with an emphasis in Post-Production and Cinematography. I am fascinated by storytelling, and those are the tools necessary to create emotional storytelling, along with many others that I have obtained.

Darren Koester

Hi, my name is Darren Koester, see above. I have a strong passion for all things creative and have been creating content ever since I was a young boy. In fact, this whole journey began for me when I was playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

There is a cut scene before you go to the Shadow temple where Link encounters an invisible beast. There was something about that scene that really set off a fire in me. I remember calling my friend and leaving a message on his answering machine talking about how amazing that cut scene was, trying desperately to catch my breath. My guess is his mom came home, played the message and thought, "Geeze, this kid needs to chill." Then proceeded to delete it.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy our content!
