A Moving Picture Studios is an international wedding and event cinematography company based in central Canada. They will be shooting a limited number of weddings in South Africa from December 2011 to March 2012. If you want to be one of the 10 lucky couples to have your wedding filmed by this dynamic and eye-catching company, you had better be quick!
Sean Philips, director and chief cinematographer for the company explains: “For me, it’s all about quality, not quantity. We will be shooting a maximum of 10 weddings a year in South Africa. This gives us the opportunity to really focus our creativity into making each movie a perfect reflection of the couple’s personalities and taste. We bring all this knowledge and experience gained in the North American market to South Africa, which is what really gives us the edge.”
A Moving Picture Studio’s unique style is more like a Hollywood movie or a music video than the traditional old-school documentary style. They employ only the most up to date gear and techniques. “We focus on telling the story of your day through dynamic camerawork, creative editing and a soundtrack that is 100% inspired by you. Only when everybody in the room watching your highlights mini-movie is crying are we satisfied that we’ve done our job right!”
A Moving Picture Studios pricing policy is just as interesting as their product. As Sean puts it: “I am originally from Cape Town and my brother and folks still live there. What a great excuse to come and visit for three months of the year! Especially the three months when it’s 50 degrees in Canada and there is no way we can shoot outside anyway! That’s why this is not a money making venture for me. The North American side of the business is roaring. I just want my trips to South Africa to pay for themselves. We’re basically working for half price!”
Of course the only real factor in booking a wedding cinematographer should be whether you LOVE the video or not. So visit www.amovingpicturestudios.com to have a look at the awesome examples of their recent work. Considering they’re only shooting 10 weddings each summer, you better contact them now!
