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 three daughters.
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 — shooter, editor, production coordinator, audio technician, designer, and tech support. He left a career in IT to follow his passion for film and video and has never looked back.
James currently lives in West Philadelphia with his wife, and during the week he keeps busy as the Creative Director at Arsenal Mediaworks. James fills most of his spare time with photography, comedy writing, and binge watching Netflix.
Megan Smith is the Studio Manager and an editor at Merryweather Films. She has worked on independent films in the Camera, AD, and Art departments. She has always loved weddings, and even worked for a wedding planning company in college. She is thrilled to be able to work at two of her favorite things in the world- video and weddings- and being able to craft beautiful cinematic wedding films is her ideal day on the job!
When she’s not at the Merryweather studio, you can find her taking a dance class, hiking with her husband, or adding to her Pinterest boards.
Kevin Brinker is an audio technician, shooter and assistant editor at Merryweather Films.
Kevin studied Film & Mass Media at Virginia Tech, through which he developed a love for documentary film. After school, he spent a year and a half producing videos for the Department of Energy Solar Decathlon--a biennial international competition. He’s worked on short films, music videos, and corporate branding videos.
Kevin has always had a passion for human storytelling and loves to capture those intimate moments that weddings can offer. When he’s not working, you can often find Kevin hiking and playing in the dirt somewhere.
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.
