I am a ninja filmmaker - I record unobtrusively to get all the shots I need to create individual pieces of art.

Reeling Films was founded by Ellie Connell because of the unique effect her work. Covering events from the Loire Valley to Sydney and everywhere in between, her films are guaranteed to bring a room to tears. For her, it is not about recording every single second of the special day, but rather capturing moments that most others would have missed. As one of the last remaining people using real super 8mm film, she uses a combination of super 8 cameras and digital media to craft stunning short wedding films.

Rave word of mouth reviews and an impeccable history with the industry’s top event coordinators have made her the go-to filmmaker for couples that aren’t looking for the traditional wedding videography.

Real film has a life of its own

Ellie finds inspiration through new films and shorts, such as the Louis Vuitton L’Invitation au Voyage series, and strives to incorporate these techniques into her own work. Rather than using the traditional digital camera format of most wedding cinematographers, Ellie prefers to shoot with a combination of new and old formats, which allow a visually stunning interpretation of the day and its memories.

Simply put, her vignettes sell themselves. The thoughtful and time-consuming care that go into the final stages of every work is personally completed by Ellie herself. She painstakingly perfects every Reeling Film and has limited her events each season to ensure each are given the time it deserves to ensure a top quality, luxury product and personal attention that each couple deserves.

What is your favorite part of a wedding to capture?

The candid moments between the couple and their their family and friends. It's always something different, I spend the day on the lookout for all the supercharged emotional connections.
