Trust is really important for me, so I will do my best to create a clear idea of myself.
Hi, I’m Plamen Bijev and I love shooting and editing cool video productions. In the last couple of years I have worked on impressive ideas with great people with whom we have shot different sized wedding, music, sport, fashion and lifestyle projects. You will recognize my work by the guitar music that accompanies the majority of my life. The music of groups like The Black Keys, The White Stripes and Led Zeppelin influenced my vintage style of cinematography incorporating almost no visual effects.
Recently I have been working hard on RockaWeddings – a new company dedicated to creating a memory of your wonderful and funky wedding in photo and video format. The team is really committed to the idea of capturing the natural emotions of such an intimate moments and making them look like a real film. Given that these events happen live and require a careful eye for the details in constantly changing emotions, we specialize in making our customers happy with the final result by using the latest and most advanced video equipment and editing software.
Whether we shoot an advertisement for your business, an intimate wedding, a huge event with thousands of visitors or your great idea for a video project – I know how to make it all look authentic so that the videos will be watched over and over for years to come.
PHILOSOPHY OF SHOOTING
I just like being invisible and trying to be on many different locations, in a really short period of time, in order to capture the shots that I picture in my mind. I don’t seek staged situations and gimmicks that don’t look natural. Emotion is the most important thing that I seize and try to represent in my videos. The goal – to capture the right thing at the right time.
DSLR/SLR BODY & CAMERAS
I use Super35 sensor cameras and Full-Frame ones. The two sensors have different advantages, depending on where and how they are used. I combine of Canon, Sony and Blackmagic cameras to create the best results possible.
STABILIZATION & EQUIPMENT
The DJI Ronin M stabilizing system allows me to do continuous, smooth cinematic motions for different types of video productions. I use tripods, stabilizers and sliders, but I mainly rely on my hands.
I like to use fast lenses with smooth aperture, long focus ring and I use almost nothing else most of the time. These lenses allow me that great bokeh and let more light get to the sensor which is very helpful in darker environments.
EDITING & GREADING
Processing of raw material is the most important thing. The selection of music, the way of editing and color grading take most of the project work. If all this is properly put together, the effect is amazing.
