Who am I?
My name is Mike Cerveni and I am the owner and cinematographer of Over The Ocean Films. We are based in Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada and provide high quality cinematic stories for all of your special days.
Why do I do what I do?
From a young age, I would always pick up a video camera and film anything and everything that caught my eye! I would become very invested and make sure that I captured all the right angles and details even if it was just a regular family event or a cottage trip up north.
What sets my services apart?
As a musician and film maker, I've always had the passion to combine both elements: music + film. I believe filming involves the same finer nuances that go into creating a song or recording at a studio. They all involve telling a story to the audience and I combine these elements to make your story as complete as can be. I also provide high speed livestreaming services for any family, commercial, or celebratory events.
Why choose me?
It takes time to know your craft but also to know how you want something captured. I have always dedicated my time and energy into creating a high-class final product for each of my clients. Whether it be a wedding, corporate branding video, or even a music video, I focus on telling a story in addition to capturing each and every moment. Every person has a story to tell and every project has a story behind it. I'm here to help you relive those stories forever, from beginning to end.
You never know who you'll end up being with. For Felecia and Carlos, they've known each other for quite some time. Even went on the same school bus together and remained friends throughout their school life. Watch their love story unfold here!
"We were merely acquaintances, only neighbours who would exchange waves as we pass by each other. Somehow that developed into a friendship, a relationship, an engagement, and now a marriage. Iwould pray to God every night asking him that if it is seen right for my future to bless me with the man who would compliment my life, and that is exactly what God did, He brought you into my life".
"Right now the world we live in may be a strange, and uncertain and even scary place at times and so much is uknown, but I have to say that today filled my heart with so much love and hope."
"I always tell people how much I prayed for you a few months before you entered my life. I asked for a partner who could be strong to face the world, but always be gentle in my arms. You became my silver lining.."
"I would have to say that ever since you came into my life, my life has changed for the better. I'm a firm believer in that things happen for a reason and that you came into my life at the exact moment you were supposed to...not a day early..or a day late"

We travelled to Erin, Ontario 2 weeks ago to film a gorgeous wedding at Erin Estate Weddings for Natalie and Rafael! We KNEW it would be an amazing day but we didn't know how special it truly would be. Here is their story.

Eric and Sarah came to us in dire need of a photographer for their wedding which was 1 month away..but they also didn't want the regret of not choosing videography for their special day as well! I think it's safe to say there are no regrets here!! We absolutely loved your wedding day. Everything went smoothly, the venue was beautiful and you two are amazing together!
