B'nai Mitzvah Films

At Alex Hopkins Entertainment, we do NOT make the old style 1-2 hour long, grainy Camcorder Grandpa type Videos. Our films try to creatively and dynamically capture the feeling and emotion of the day with High Quality 4k footage (even in low light) and skillful editing. I approach the party/day like a cinematic story- because really.. it is! 


Unlike many companies, I shoot everything in full 4k for the future, even in our basic packages. I also engage with your child, family and friends in a fun way at the party, so it’s kind of like getting an extra MC to add to the energy and excitement! I LOVE being part of this important milestone. When you book Alex Hopkins Entertainment- you get Alex Hopkins (barring Emergency!), not a stranger just sent from a bigger company with no emotional investment.
