    Hey there! I’m Malcolm Debono and I’m from the island of Malta, a small European country located just below Italy. I am currently reading for a degree in B. Communications (Hons.) and Computer Information Systems at University of Malta. I also work as a freelance cinematographer & photographer, as well as work with local audio-visual companies.

    Photography is my main passion, and it is that something that I’m always practicing and reading about in my free time. I have shifted more towards the world of cinematography when the HDSLR revolution came about. The latest HDSLR cameras on the market offer many benefits for small-time film makers, however the single thing that attracts me towards these cameras is the particular look they produce, which with the necessary skills can be made to mimic that of film (as opposed to the digital look produced by typical camcorders).

    I believe that today's small cameras are very powerful tools when combined with the right ideas. As such, I'm always on the look-out for the latest technology, with the Sony NEX 5N being my latest addition to my gear arsenal. The picture that can be achieved with a camera this size is simply incredible! This has led me to support projects that aim to turn DSLRs and similar cameras into better cameras for shooting video. I am part of the Magic Lantern team. Put simple, Magic Lantern is a firmware add-on for many Canon DSLRs that adds many useful features both for video and photo. I am also part of a new project aimed at hacking the Sony NEX / Alpha series, along with Andrew Reid from EOSHD.

    I also create motion graphics. Some are created exclusively to be sold as stock on VideoHive, part of the Envato marketplace (I have recently became the owner of a shiny new red paw, meaning that I exceeded $ 1,000 in sales!).

    From time to time, I also do some development, with the main aim of enhancing my workflow. The latest app that I created is HDSLR Offloader. It is a Windows utility that can offload footage from memory cards onto your PC's hard drives, but includes several advanced features such as multiple destinations, error checking, batch renaming and quick profiles. It also has plenty of features that are related to Magic Lantern, including HDR video processing and shot list generator.

    The main aim of this site is to serve as a personal portfolio of some of the works I create as well as document any interesting things I come along both online as well as in real life. I hope you enjoy your stay here! Feel free to drop me an email  should you wish to get in touch with me. I make an effort to reply to each email as quickly as possible!

    Wedding cinematography

    While I  strive to achieve the best results in all the work I do, wedding cinematography is by far my pride. Gone are the days of long & boring traditional wedding videos. I find it my priority is to tell a story by capturing the best moments of your wedding day (including the wedding highlights as well as reactions, candid shots and details), editing them together, and combining them with soundtracks that complement the film.

    I only use equipment from trusted brands such as Arri, Canon, Sennheiser and Manfrotto to name a few, which gives me peace of mind due to their reliability. My weddings are also covered by multiple cameras to capture a variety of different angles. Using some of the latest Canon HDSLRs and a range of lenses, your wedding film can be shot with a cinematic look in Full HD quality. George Lucas once said that "sound is half the picture". I follow this principle and do my utmost to capture the cleanest sound possible especially during important parts of the weddings such as the vows.

    Kindly note that I only take a limited number of books per year to maintain the level of quality. If you'd like to inquire about the wedding packages I offer or to see samples of finished wedding films, please get in touch with me so that together we can discuss exactly what you need, depending on your requirements!

    Please visit MaltaWeddingFilms for further info regarding wedding cinematography.
