About David and AVR Films
About David Ethridge
Filmmaker David Ethridge has a single passion:
Creating movies that move him first!
His emotionally charged short films are all about capturing the true intimacy of weddings, anniversaries, vow renewals, and just great family
celebrations through out the San Francisco Bay area and beyond.
Weddings are the cinematographer’s specialty; award-winning AVR Films feature the bride and groom in leading roles, the event excitement, and
heart felt family connections, resulting in a high-caliber hand crafted film emulating a Hollywood production.
The creative director David and his talented son Brian work together as co-filmmakers, creating couture reels using a hybrid style of HDSLR and
8mm film that gives your video a contemporary vibe with a romantic vintage edge.
His cinematic team loves filming subjects and surroundings in vivid color with dramatic lighting blended with retro black-and-white footage.
Time lapses are another dramatic effect David uses to enhance different backdrops surrounding the scene.
Trained by a master photographer early on, David also focuses on the meaningful details through his flawless still life shots: the bride’s gown, floral,
jewelry, and especially the gorgeous bridal pump shoes.
David Ethridge loves filming exclusive events and are constantly complimented on not being noticed or changing the mood of the moment.
David’s demeanor is like that of a close friend who naturally makes everyone feel at ease on the fun and crazy wedding day.
