I’ve been following the rise of “Stillmotion” (www.stillmotion.ca) a group of inspiring filmmakers for the past three or four years. They started as a very small wedding cinematography company in Toronto and have now grown into an office in San Francisco where they’ve been producing high-end promotional videos and stories for some big players in the USA including Callaway, CISCO, and the NCAA. These guys are a testament to the idea that you don’t always need a huge budget and a big executive team to make something that’s really cool and speaks volumes.
How do you go from shooting weddings to getting an interview with Phil Mickelson for Callaway golf clubs?
How do you gain unprecedented behind the scenes access to one of North America’s biggest annual sporting events?
I think it’s their relentless passion and refreshed approach they take with every new video they produce that makes them interesting. You would think that shooting a wedding is a very straight forward procedural form of filmmaking…and it is – but these guys always manage to see things from a different angle, and I think that is what has made them so successful today.
