Introducing The Filmstrip! (& Some Updates...)
Hello friends! Today we are proud to introduce, for the first time in print, the Filmstrip!

If that sounds good, hit that sign up button to the right!
Help us welcome: Keith!
Last month, our very own Jenna delivered her first baby, a healthy boy named Keith. Jenna & Keith are loving life together, and we are loving our new junior editor-in-training.
Goodbye, Editor Scott
(That headline is a hilarious pun)
Speaking of Jenna, once she’s well-rested and ready to return to us, Jenna will be stepping in as our main editor for wedding videos! Look forward to seeing her expert hand at work in upcoming videos 👰💖🤵
But if Jenna takes over as the main editor for wedding content – what will Scott do with all of his new free time? Well, fear not, dear reader, Scott will be shepherding our journey into the magical world of video for business. Please shoot us an email with your favorite leadership book recommendations, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for him at a networking event near you!
Living the College Grad Dream…
Mark is living our college graduation dreams! He did so well as our coffee boy–I mean, intern–that we decided to make him our second staff editor, so look forward to seeing him around more often as he works his magic! Although we’ll have to talk about using witchcraft during work hours…
Who IS She?
On the topic of new editions–have we introduced Jessie yet?
This part is very awkward, because Jessie is writing this section as we speak.
She’s our in-house content creator, and she’s responsible for our blogposts, wedding posts, and scripts (among other things). We think we’ll keep her around. And give her a raise. And a bonus. (Did I say Jessie was writing this? It’s actually Scott, who wants to give Jessie lots of money). Sign up for the email newsletter if you think Jessie should have lots of money! 💁♀️
We’ve Moved On….
Some of you will remember the good times we had at our old office, previously located at 401 Hall St, and they were certainly good times! Like so many other companies since 2020, we have discovered that our employees (and owners) prefer the freedom and flexibility of working from home, so UNF has gone fully remote! We have outfitted each employee’s office with a full-size fridge, a fully stocked kitchen, and a private bathroom! We’re even allowing pets! You might say we are the best bosses ever (and we would agree).
Please enjoy this tour of the Unnamed Films Pet Division:
As many of you will know, working from home comes with many benefits (did we mention the private bathrooms?), it also comes with challenges. While we miss the glorious high-speed internet that comes with working in downtown Grand Rapids (and enabled us to transfer footage at a reasonable speed), we have found a way to make our rigorous editing process work, even from home! Our whole team is happier with their new freedoms, and that makes any technical challenges well worth it. If you’d be interested in hearing about how we made the transition, let us know – we'll save room for our work-from-home setup in a future edition!
An Open Horizon is a Good Horizon
Since 2015, Unnamed Films has been focused on providing top-quality, custom wedding videos for brides and grooms in West Michigan and beyond–and that commitment to making breathtaking, tear-jerking wedding videos isn’t going anywhere! However, as we continue to grow our team and our process, we want to start branching out into the world of commercial video production. Check out some of our recent work in this area here.
That’s all, folks!
