Hi, I’m Mike Waltze, a filmmaker from Maui, Hawaii. I have worked with stars like Sting, Neil Diamond, Jack Nicklaus, Wayne Dyer and Oprah to name a few. I also work with some of the best Athletes in the world, and in all of these projects I use the very best digital cinema camera equipment, currently the Red Epic. A wedding only happens once. It is my pleasure to provide you with a true Hollywood quality cinema style short film of your wedding day.

Gretta Kruesi Running Rocks On Namotu Island

The surf was flat this day, and Gretta asked if I would take her picture (I was shocked…she’s so shy).  Not quite as agile as Julia Mancuso but she managed to hold her breath long enough for a shot.  Good going Gretta!

Namotu Underwater.

Kristin Hettermann is an amazing swimmer.  We took an Iphone out into the surf on this day and just sort of messed around with an underwater housing.  About 20 really cool images came out of this session.  I plan on getting the Red Epic out there and doing some more of this stuff at 200 frames a second.   Stay posted for that….

Even though this shot was taken underwater, it has the effect of an angel flying out of the clouds.  Kristin Hetterman…mermaid…Mike Waltze Photo
