  • This is my first review I have ever written. And i honestly hate to be writing this, but it feels necessary. My husband and I had to cancel due to COVID. Colby told us in August 2020 that we would receive a full refund of our $900 deposit. It’s now November 2020 and I couldn’t tell you how many emails I have sent Colby. He just does not respond. Do not book this vendor!!!!

  • Run! I would give zero stars if it was an option. Of course, Colby was incredibly responsive when we contacted about his services and our initial contract. We signed in October 2019 for our wedding in July 2020. Around March time frame when COVID hit, we contacted all of our vendors to talk about options. We couldn't get a hold of Colby. We left voicemails and only after I sent a harsh second email did he respond. We agreed to speak on the phone. At the time of our call, we were not planning to cancel and agreed verbally (and then in writing via email) that if COVID was still in place in June and we would have to cancel our wedding, he would issue us a refund of our deposit. We agreed that we would communicate with him a month before the event on a decision and he said that was fine. He even responded to our email acknowledging and agreeing. So then unfortunately in June, with COVID still rampant, we had to cancel our planned wedding. We again left 3 voicemails and 3 emails confirming ... Read more

  • I find it difficult to write this review because I don’t think Colby is a bad person. But if you want to actually receive your wedding video, then don’t go with Colby. My husband and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary but we are yet to receive the videos that we paid for. We have had a few intermittent messages from him but he has ignored us for months at a time despite pleading for a response with endless emails and voicemails. He did sent us a preliminary version of one of videos but my name was misspelled and the location was inaccurate. We asked him to update these but never heard back. Each time he responds months later with excuse after excuse and promises to get us our videos by a certain date and every single time the date comes and goes. We have to keep emailing him, calling him, and will likely have to sue him. We are at our wit’s end. We just want to get our videos and be done with Colby. I would highly recommend going with a different vendor for videograp... Read more

  • I got married July 2019 and leading up to and day of the wedding, everything was fine. Afterwards, everything with Colby and Anchor Cinema was awful. My contract with him said I would receive my footage in 10 days. Then he said it was an old contract I signed and it would take another 2 weeks...another 2 weeks has now turned into 10 months and counting! Very unprofessional. I cant even count the number of false promises I have received and still nothing. I am very unsure what to do at this point. Not a good feeling to have surround such a special day... I DO NOT recommend Anchor Cinema.

  • My wife and I had a beautiful wedding and had been looking forward to watching our wedding video together. Colby was very flexible, friendly and professional upfront. Unfortunately, after paying him for his services, we have not received our video yet and it has been 8 months. Only broken promises and unreturned calls. This is just a horrible situation to be in. Our memories are in jeopardy of being lost because Colby has been nowhere to be found. We have begged him to not have to go through a legal battle and he responded with more promises of "3 more weeks" and then has been a ghost. Really heartbroken to have to go through any of this. No couple should. You get what you pay for, please don't jeopordise and put your wedding's precious memories and moments into Anchor Cinema's hands. All I can do is hope he decides to respond and just give us a copy of the video that we paid him for, fulfill the contract and warn future couples to avoid doing business with them so that they don't have...

  • The team at Anchor Cinema were great on our wedding day. They captured 8 hours of our first look, ceremony, and reception. They were super nice, friendly, and professional throughout the entire experience. Maybe most important, I never felt like we were being filmed or that they were interferring with the event. They captured all these great moments, but made it a priority to blend into the background, which I really appreciated. The reason my review isn't 5 stars is because the communication and return after the wedding day could use improvement. Our contract said we would have our wedding highlight shortly after our wedding day, but we didn't receive any kind of follow up or check ins for several months. I reached out to the team several times, hoping to get some kind of ETA on our highlight and on the rest of the raw footage that we paid for. I received radio silence for months and only when I threatened taking them to small claims court did I get a response. Apparently, they we... Read more

  • just received my highlight video from Mitch at Anchor Cinema and am wiping tears of joy and sentiment away. It's amazing how I was able to relive the entire amazing day in 7 minutes! I can't wait to get the extended film of my wedding, as the highlight reel is only a glimpse of the magic Anchor Cinema filmed and produced. We spoke with Mitch and liked him immediately. He was cool, laid back and easy to talk to and we both knew that he would work his creative magic for our wedding. Mitch and Joey were my videographers the day of, and they were fabulous! They kept me calm and laughing the entire day and captured everything down to the last detail. I loved the way they filmed our wedding--the journalistic style of seeing the behind the scenes and capturing the random and uninhibited moments of the wedding party, family and the guests. They were so professional and made my guests feel at ease and it really shows in their work. If you are looking for talented, artistic and easy ... Read more

  • Everyone says that your wedding will fly by and that you need to step back and take a moment to take it in so you remember it. Instead, just enjoy every minute of your wedding, stay on that dance floor with your new husband/wife/partner, and let Anchor Cinema capture the memories for you! I don't even know where to start with all of the good things I have to say. A week after our wedding we received a link to our highlight film which was the perfect recap of our wedding day! We were able to reminisce immediately and share it with all of our family and friends that were not able to attend. The video is so beautiful and captured the most important and special day of our lives perfectly. If you want a meaningful wedding video and a very enjoyable experience, I could not suggest Anchor Cinema any more highly!

  • I stumbled upon anchor cinemas by accident. I inquired about the prices and it was closer to the price range I needed. Mitch is really easy to work with and was extremely flexible. Especially since I couldn't decide on the exact package I wanted. He did a great job capturing everything. Made us a 3 minute movie that put our day together perfectly. I would use him again. -Tori shepner

  • Mitch's services for our wedding were of the utmost professional quality. Not only was he flexible with our schedules in meeting to plan, but also moved with great finesse during the ceremony, providing us photos that perfectly capture our wedding. His quality of work is amazing. Mr. Zotovich was very understanding of our budget, working with us to provide top quality photos and videography. We definitely recommend him to anyone if they are looking!!

  • I heard about Anchor Cinema from a friend in NY. Anchor Cinema just relocated to Monterey from NY where the company had been working for several years. I had attended my friends wedding and absolutely loved her wedding video. I was so was thrilled when I found out that this same company was now based in Monterey! Anchor Cinema magically captured the most precious moments during that day and made it incredibly entertaining (even my now husband thought so). Hiring a videographer may at first seem like an extra expense, but I highly recommend to anyone who is trying to decide if it's something they want to do. There is so much that happens during your wedding day and it goes by so fast. Photos just can't capture it all, especially the essence of the day and all of those things you missed when there was so much going on. Anchor Cinema was amazing to work with, quick to return emails and phone calls, incredibly professional and made us feel really comfortable (I'm quite camera shy). My wed... Read more

  • Mitch Zotovich is an incredibly talented videographer. I hired his videography company, Anchor Cinema for my wedding in Central Park (yay it was so beautiful) and I would not have chosen anyone else. In NY there is a sea of videographers to choose from, but Anchor Cinema's quality, professionalism and final product far exceeds the rest. Our wedding was incredibly gorgeous, a dream and I'm so happy to have the most gorgeous film to remember it with. Thank you Mitch!
