Renaissance Studios "Speaks" to their Audience

Renasissance Studios creates graceful wedding art films for brides, babies, families, and more. Their uniquely elegant wedding and family stories are unobtrusively captured on romantic Super 8mm movie film, or through a beautiful blend of film and latest in digital video and audio technology.

BUT WAIT! That's not all! Using their Emmy Award winning techniques, Renaissance Studios offers sound to Super 8! Sound? For the savvy bride-to-be this sounds impossible! Super 8 film is vintage (back in the day when there was no sound in films). To the less techy brides, you may wonder why you would want a video without sound in the first place?? Well, the grainy, vintage, classic, and utterly beautiful look of Super 8 films give your wedding video a timeless and romantic feel that you don't find with the digital medium. Companies lace music (and vocals) over these films for a personalized wedding soundtrack, but what if your vows were dubbed over the image of you speaking them to your spouse? Word for word, to match the picture on the screne. Brilliant! The editing and transition is flawless, no one will ever know those tears and sniffles weren't found on the original film. And the result - tears in the audience for sure!

And what if you're friends won't come over for the viewing party?? Renaissance Studios gives you a iPod friendly downloaded version to take with you it on a plane, in line buying those thank you notes, show your co-workers the drunken clips of your boss, the possibilities are endless!

Calling all Brides!

Every wonder what happens to those beautiful hand-stitched, lace, beaded, couture ball gowns that never make it down the aisle? Bridal Gown Hell? NO! Bride-to-be Heaven!

Her name is Nathalie, she's from the Spring 2006 Luxe Collection, a stunning a-line Chantilly lace ivory dress. Her bridal size is a 10. Measurements are bust: 37", waist: 29.5", hip: 39.5", length: 60" and has not been altered in any way. Nathalie retails $11,890 but this bride-to-be no-longer is selling her for $7500 or best offer.

Red Loft Studios - The San Francisco Treat!

Ever thought of what's missing in the city by the bay and couldn't think of what it was?

-Fog? (no there's plenty of that)

-Sourdough bread? (Nope, many of us have ruined our low carb diet in SF)

-Hills? (oh my, have you ever walked up Lombard?)

Still stumped?....

Red Loft Studios is what has been missing!!

The girls of Red Loft are taking on San Francisco this wedding season! Tammy and Nikki are moving up to No Cal to spear head the expansion and bring a little ray of sunshine onto the bay. Not to fear, they're still So Cal rooted, they just want to make the world a little loftier, one city at a time!

So visit the ladies at their loft in Long Beach, or check 'em out while you're visiting San Francisco.

P.S. You can also check Red Loft out in this season's The Knot Northern California Magazine.
