Bali is known for its gorgeous scenery and this is not limited to its beaches, but includes other natural landscapes, such as majestic waterfalls, stunning cliffs and serene rice fields. Furthermore, the island holds some of the world’s best-kept secrets, precious hidden corners and less well-beaten paths. This is what led cinematographer Ucup Malik to establish Verde Cinematography, with the sole aim of immortalising precious memories against the aforementioned stunning scenes.
Ucup got his start in cinematography when he used to help his friends produce music videos in Jakarta – that’s when he first fell in love with the camera. His first encounter with wedding videography was when he lived in Bandung, where he shot numerous weddings – both traditional and modern. In 2013, Ucup moved to Bali and joined one of the most renowned wedding videographer companies in Indonesia, where he gained more experience, skill and knowledge. Two years later, Ucup decided to create Verde Cinematography.
“People from all over the world come to Bali for its natural and cultural beauty. Bali has unique vistas that cannot be found anywhere else. Balinese culture also provides beautiful and inspiring memories,” Ucup explained. “With Verde Cinematography, I really want to bring out Bali’s natural beauty, combined with people’s happiest moments. It can be weddings, or any other events on the island that people want to remember – I want to help by providing the media that they can always look back to.”
