OUR STORY

Cinematography. Filmmaking.
Storytelling. 
Previously known as Dan Gooda Films, we have
rebranded our company and have launched Island
Escape Media. With a focus on telling people's
stories, we pride ourselves in high quality work
at a fair rate. 
 
What started out as a hobby for years, has grown
into a business. Serving the community and this
province with visuals of our backyard and the
people who call it home is a pleasure and something we take great pride in.
 
We love shooting weddings as it is a perfect chance to tell the story of a couple. A wedding day, with magical moments like first looks and first kisses, is meant to be the most memorable day of your life and we love creating content for you to share and enjoy those memories.

"Dan reached out to me from a facebook post I made asking for a unique video concept, and he made the process of making my dream a reality SO EASY. We coordinated a meeting place and even asked to change the time last minute, and Dan (together with his wonderful partner) was accommodating, professional, thorough and collaborative throughout filming. Everything came together perfectly and I'm so glad I have this special video to share with friends and family. Thank you again Dan for such a wonderful filming experience!"

Thank you for doing such a great job on our video and photos! You guys were so pleasant and professional. You caught so many wonderful memories without us even knowing you were recording or taking pictures and got great angles! We were so pleased with your work. We would definitely hire you for another event and refer you to anyone looking for a photographer /videographer. You guys do amazing work and thanks again!"

“Thank you so much for both videos and all the raw footage - you guys are so talented at what you do and work so hard! You captured our day so perfectly, we both felt right back at every single moment watching it! To be totally honest we were originally on the fence about booking a videographer (tight wedding budget etc) but it was without a doubt one of the best investments we’ve ever made! I am so grateful to have this video, especially with everything going on in the world, so we can share it with people you couldn’t join us.”

"This team was super professional, discreet, patient, kind, and oh so creative. I highly recommend them for your wedding, birthday, everyday, events, photoshoot, video shoot etc. Indian weddings are not easy to organize and stay on schedule. The team was so considerate and understanding. To me, that means a lot. Knowing it is your  special day, this crew made sure to keep the B&G smiling, enjoy the photoshoot and directed well. No awkward poses or moments. I miss them :)"​

"Just a quick shout out to Dan Gooda, our videographer for our wedding on Sept 1st 2018. We are amazed by him! Having him capture our wedding was the best decision we could have made! We got the finished product back and we are absolutely in LOVE with it! Dan was able to capture those special moments to really bring us back and feel that day all over again! He has the best communication, professionalism and really puts so much effort into creating a piece of our wedding that we will have forever!"

"When we were planning our wedding I had heard so many brides saying that they regretted not having a videographer to capture their wedding day. After looking at a few options I did not think having a videographer was going to be in our budget until I saw Dan share his services on one of the wedding facebook groups. Island Escape Media is by far the most reasonable pricing for videography with options that can fit in anyones budget. From the beginning, Dan was very professional and had an easy going and no-pressure attitude I really appreciated when considering hiring anyone for the wedding. Dan and Cait were great to have around on the wedding day, it was intimidating to think there was going to be so many people around capturing intimate moments between us and our family and friends but they were so professional and worked well with our other photographers. They gave little coaching and prompting and focused on capturing small details and candid, authentic moments that made a perfect video. The turn around time was really quick and the quality of the video, the music they chose and moments they included really represented our favourite parts of the wedding and suited us as a couple. The day honestly went by so fast that we were happy to have a video made to help capture things that photography can't. Would highly recommend checking them out!"

“Dan and Cait are professional but easy going people, it made the filming process relaxed and almost natural. They captured our wedding day so perfectly. The video is visually beautiful, and portrays the atmosphere and the feelings of the day. They captured wonderful details, candid moments and of course the important moments (ceremony, speeches). Communication was always prompt and clear. I would highly recommend Island Escape Media as wedding videographers! Thank you both again, now we can relive our day whenever.”
