WHAT is Snowberry Studios?
Snowberry Studios is a Bruneian own video service company which offer simple but yet unique shooting and editing which we best described as 'photography in motion'. Such style produces unforgettable moments captured in dramatic techniques.

WHEN was Snowberry Studios established?
In the 1990's, when VHS tape and the bulky VHS player/recorder was the coolest thing to have, a videographer began to learn the art of shooting and editing from his father who was then a well-known freelance wedding videographer.

Since then the owner has been providing freelance videographer services on the recommendations of friends and family.
The company was unnamed back then. The business went commercial when it was officially registered in April 2009 under the name Snowberry Studios.

WHY the name Snowberry Studios (SS)?
Videography service is a competitive business and one way to highlight the existence of SS in the market is by creating a brand name which is not only unique but also easy to remember. So names like Blueberry Studios and White Room Studios was amongst those thought of.

Snowberry Studios was ultimately chosen because of the ‘snow’ factor which would definitely capture people's attention and fascination in a country which literally is scorching hot!

WHO are the staff of SS?
SS at this juncture is a one man run company where Syam is the owner, videographer and video editor. However, in instances clients require multiple videographers, SS will make the necessary arrangements to work together with other videographers.

WHERE is SS located?
As a sole proprietor, SS is, for now, registered on a home address in Tanjong Bunut, Brunei. However, the owner does have plan to expand the business by renting an office space and employing professional staff in the long run.

Owner's Note

"I am a part-time videographer/editor and creating high quality video is my passion. I've always try to push the limit of videography via 'affordable' equipments and technology. I'm in this industry to share my passion with everyone while creating incredible video legacy for my clients.

I started in the 1990's for several years before I took a long leave from wedding videography due to study and work. In 2008, I bought my Panasonic 3CCD and jump started my video career. There was no looking back thereon.

I would never forget my first wedding shot using my father's bulky Panasonic shoulder videocam on a VHS tape, it was horrible! Shaky, unfocused shots! *thanks dad for your frank constructive comment ;-)* Editing was even more depressing, where the videocam played the recorded tape and another VHS recorder connected via an RCA cable, standing by to record the original content. The copy would lose its quality everytime you make a copy.. :-((

Music you ask? Direct self engineered cabling from a tape player or audio CD player to the RCA cable (you have to be MacGyver to be able to do this.. LOL). As for video title, they were shot direct from the PC's monitor..

When technology finally caught up, it was a blessing to editing!! Video can then be transferred via firewire to my computer and editing software allow timeline editing, insertion of special effect , color grading and most important of all; burning video to VCD, DVD and more recently Blu-Ray Disc (BRD)..

The hardships during those eras have made me to be more appreciative of the convenient of today's editing and see the world of videography in a different perspective
