True Stories About Domestic ViolenceMaking videos to change lives, it's truly what God has called me to do. When a nonprofit organization reached out to me about a message they wanted to tell the world, I jumped in with both feet, right away.Domestic violence is a scary and real thing that is happening all around us. So many people don't know or see the signs of it and this nonprofit wanted to open eyes to the real truth. This video is so important because you, or someone you know, may be experiencing some of these things and there are options and ways to get help. I'm so glad I was able to be a part of such a big project that can truly change and SAVE lives.Directed By: Jennifer DraderFilmed & Edited by: Kirsten SaharekGraphics by: CSP - HealthFilmed with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 24-70mm 2.8Music:Truth to TellPerformed by Big Score Audio
Midori Lifestyle VideoThe idea for this video sprouted when Rachel, from Midori Bikinis, reached out to me a few years after we'd previously met. She hadn't realized that the video company she reached out to was owned by the same girl (me) who had once interviewed her for a personal blog back in the day. Once we put everything together, we realized that it was going to be an amazing project for both of us.Rachel told me her vision for the video: Girls visiting the Midori headquarters in La Jolla, San Diego, for a day of fittings, fun, and surfing. I was onboard with everything immediately! I knew a video of this caliber would need some serious talent, so I hired my good friend JJ to help shoot, and my bestie Erika to help style.Together, we pulled together some AMAZING models for the shoot. These girls gave 100% all day shooting, and even had enough energy stored by 6PM that day for an on camera sunset surf.I can't say enough good things about this team & I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.Directed by: Rachel MidoriFilmed by: Kirsten Saharek & Justin VasquezEdited by: Kirsten SaharekStyled by: Rachel Midori, Erika JohnsonModels: Eryn Krouse, Elise Gabrielle, Molly Guldin, and Alina VergaraFilmed with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 35mm 1.4, Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 24-70mm 2.8, Phantom 3 Pro, ND Filter, GoPro Hero4Music:Dreamers (Dan Dan Noodle Remix)Performed by Scavenger Hunt
Newport Church Life GroupsI love helping out with videos for my church whenever I can. Newport Church has such a fresh perspective on how to bring people together. I also LOVE this creative team & the visions they have for video ideas.Josh Legurn, the creative team lead, had a fantastic idea to film all ages/stages of life at the church during their life group gatherings. I think together, we were able to capture the true moments that make life groups so special.Directed By: Josh LegurnFilmed & Edited by: Kirsten SaharekGraphics & Motion Graphics by: Josh Legurn & Kirsten SaharekFilmed with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 24-70mm 2.8Music:FeverPerformed by Roosevelt
Cole's CHOC StoryWhen team Payoff partnered up with CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County), a lot of our team members were really excited to celebrate all that CHOC has done for some of the families. Multiple parents at Payoff have had their child's life saved or aided by CHOC and are so grateful for their commitments and efforts. Cole's story is especially moving. Coles parents invited our media team into their home and let us capture their story on camera. It still gives me goosebumps whenever I watch it and I am so happy that this family can celebrate the success of their son & CHOC today.Filmed by: Kirsten Saharek, Mark Anderson, Brandon WallEdited by: Mark Anderson, Brandon Wall Filmed with: Canon 5d Mark III, Canon 24-70mm 2.8, Canon 85mm 1.2, Variable ND Filter 
Natalie's StoryI've never met someone who has a passion for what they do like Natalie Flowers. This beautiful and driven woman knows what she wants in life and she is a prime example of someone who chased their dreams and made them come true. I loved working with Matt Wilson & Natalie Flowers as they shared their success stories with me. Their lives are proof that hard work pays off.Filmed & Edited by: Kirsten SaharekAudio by: Kirsten SaharekFilmed with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 85mm 1.2, Variable ND FilterMusic:GlowLights & Motion
Preparation Pays OffI know all you football fans out there gear up for Super Bowl Sunday way before the big day. That's why the creative team at Payoff made this video! This silly Instagram video depicts what it's like to sit next to a super-fan at the office. You all know that guy or gal right? ;)Filmed by: Kirsten SaharekDirected by: Patrick YandocLighting by: Patrick Yandoc Talent: Mark Anderson Edited by: Mark Anderson Sound design by: Mark AndersonFilmed with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 24-70mm 2.8
Faces Of PayoffDuring an employee photoshoot for Payoff, set up by Patrick Yandoc & Lina Romeo, I pulled out my camera to shoot some behind the scenes footage of everyone having a little fun! We pulled out all the stops when it came to this photo shoot. Endless props, light painting on camera, and even a bubble machine (not shown in this video)! I had so much fun creating this montage video of the Payoff Team.Filmed & Edited by: Kirsten SaharekLighting and Set by: Patrick Yandoc & Lina RomeoMotion Design: Brandon WallDirected by: Patrick Yandoc & Lina RomeoFilmed with: Canon 7D, Canon 85mm 1.2 
Sisterhood - Newport ChurchSisterhood is a weekly service for women held by Newport Church. As part of the creative team at my church, I sometimes help out on our video team! This video was a BLAST to create alongside Andrew Strelecki, who does a ton of great work for Newport Church. The lovely Bre Wierenga and Jess Broncyzk were the talent for this video. They did an amazing job running around Victoria Beach while we filmed this promo for Sisterhood. We even made them jump in the ocean with their clothes on! Sometimes you just gotta get the shot you know? :) Filmed by: Kirsten SaharekEdited by: Andrew StreleckiFilmed with: Canon 7D, Canon 24-105mm 4.0Music:Different Drumperformed by Bianca
