Meet the team at Merryweather Films
While you'll only see three of us on your big day, Merryweather Films would not be what it is today without our entire team of passionate creatives.
Whether it's behind the camera or behind the scenes, our team works tirelessly to craft lasting memories while offering the highest level of customer service.
Colin Comstock is the owner and founder of Merryweather Films and its sister company Arsenal Mediaworks. Colin developed his passion for video in his high school’s television studio before graduating Summa Cum Laude from Temple University’s Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media school. A lifelong musician, Colin plays guitar and banjo in a folk band alongside his wife, Sarah. Colin and Sarah currently reside in Narberth, PA with their two daughters, and they are expecting their third child in October!
Colin and his team truly enjoy the rush and responsibility of capturing one of the biggest days of someone's life, live as it happens. Merryweather Films combines the collective backgrounds, experiences, and strengths of this team to create a beautiful document of your big day while being discreet and respectful of you and your guests.
James O’Brien wears many hats at Merryweather Films. Editor, production coordinator, audio technician, shooter, designer, and tech support. James left a career in IT to follow his passion for film and video and has never looked back. When he’s not working, he enjoys hiking with his fiancée, concert-going, and feeding his beard local craft brews.
Megan Hart is the studio manager and an assistant editor at Merryweather Films. She has worked on films and commercials in the camera, AD, and art departments. Before pursuing her passion in the the video world, Megan was a teacher in Philadelphia, having received her M.S.Ed from the University of Pennsylvania. When she’s not at the Merryweather studio, you can find her taking circus classes or walking the tightrope in her backyard.
Patrick Knight is one of Merryweather's fine shooters. Patrick ran his high school TV studio and later graduated as valedictorian of his film school at Full Sail University. Not only is he gifted behind the camera, but he also has a friendly, upbeat, and approachable personality that has a way of putting brides at ease on what can often be a stressful day. Outside of Merryweather, he works full time with a lighting company that services commercials, corporate videos, web content, and more. When he's not busy shooting a Wedding or working on set, Patrick plays in a volleyball league with his brother and also dabbles in juggling.
Another fantastic shooter at Merryweather, Zack Sayles has a natural gift for composition and cinematography. Upon seeing their finished video, brides and grooms have remarked countless times that they were blown away by the footage and that they often didn't even realize Zack was there. This skill has earned him the reputation of resident "ninja shooter" around the Merryweather studio. Zack is currently a film student at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Zack invests much of his time in his dual passions, film-making and skateboarding, whether he's skating himself, teaching kids to skateboard, making films for a skate shop, or shooting 35mm film photography.
More often than not Sarah Comstock's is the lovely voice that you'll hear first at Merryweather. Coincidentally, she also happens to be the aforementioned wife of Merryweather Films' video production mogul, Colin Comstock. Sarah has studied photography, herbal science, and food nutrition, making a name for herself as a trusted resource while managing a venerated apothecary in the West Village. Sarah is a fantastic singer and proud mother of two girls who loves the ocean and learning about wine, beer, vitamins, and herbs.
