From their early days meeting in Florida, Respective Collective has always placed an emphasis on capturing memorable moments with a remarkably creative approach. Chris Miglioranzi and Simon Wade first met at UCF years ago, and have been building out Respective Collective ever since.

Chris and Simon are a dynamic duo surrounded by a dream-team of freelancer creators who specialize in creating a sense of FOMO via digital content. Respective focuses on videography and photography, and has worked with an impressive list of brands to date: Rolling Loud, Governor's Ball, Off-White, Louis Vuitton, Sidetalk, Amazon, NFL, Lyrical Lemonade, and many more. Seriously, we're barely even scratching the surface.

Recently, we got the chance to see how they operate in action at the Homixide Gang show in New York City, as they creatively captured scenes during Sid Shyne's set. Not only were they just recording what was happening - they were adding to the chaos. They introduced wildly entertaining ideas, like having a "fan" get Sid's name tattooed on his arm on stage mid-show. "Fan" is in quotes because it was really a member of their team, Mike, who was equally as dedicated to the success of the show as the performers were. That dedication is something all of Respective Collective has in common.

When Chris and Simon came into the ONE37pm office for an interview, it only became more clear just how important this is to them. It's not just some job, it's a way of life for them. From before they met to now, digital creation has always been a passionate endeavor for them. We were lucky enough to talk about a wide variety of topics with them: their start in the festival world, being early on short-form videos, why NYC is the best spot for up-and-coming creatives, the delicate process of collaborating with other creatives, and working with some of the coolest artists in the world.

You never know who's watching your stuff, that's why I think its really important to post your shit. Whether it's the best thing in the world, or you're still working on improving your craft... post your shit.

- Chris Miglioranzi, Co-Founder

All in all, it's safe to say that they won't be slowing down anytime soon. If you're new to Respective Collective, take a look at their 2023 demo reel to see some of their latest and greatest work.
